You get a Map, and you get a Map, and you a Map!
Hey everyone! Fandom recently announced that Interactive Maps are live on the platform. With this feature, communities can design their own interactive maps, allowing you to place pins on an image that will lead to wiki articles when clicked on.
Interactive Maps are available to all communities, accessible
from the the "Explore" menu on the local navigation, or by visiting
Special:AllMaps directly in the url. Map creation and editing is
currently limited to those with the user right
editinteractivemap, which is automatically given to
administrators and Fandom Staff, and they can make anyone a
You can get very creative with Maps, from creating Maps of the world, to indicating the pa…
About a year after the introduction of the global "Wiki Rules and Blocking Policy", which was created to benefit to overall health of wiki communities, this policy is getting an update based on user feedback and request for more clarity and examples. The changes to the global policy will go into effect on April 4th, 2022. This is the perfect time to come together as a community and review whether or not your wiki is in compliance with the new requirements!
- 1 The new policy
- 1.1 What changed?
- 2 Got questions?
- 3 Easy links
- Rules for your wikis must be defined and easily accessible. This can include putting a link to the rules page on the wiki’s main page or in the top navigation.
- Rules must include guidelines regarding wiki formatting, how …
Hey all, first time reaching out to you all in the new year, so I first of all want to start off with the sincere hope that 2022 has been treating you all better than the previous years have. Continue to stay safe!
Secondly, I wanted to share a glimpse of the plans Fandom has in store for the first months of the new year. Brandon, the VP of Community at Fandom, shared a more elaborate blog about it, which you can read here, but this would be the overview:
- In 2021, we released an Interactive Maps alpha to 20 communities.
- Feedback from the Map testers was invaluable to determining what tools to build into the feature next.
- After a pause for the last few months of the year, development has once again kicked off on Interactive Maps…
Hey all! I wanted to invite you to Fandom's second The Downstream on Friday, September 10 at 11am EST (check for your local time here). It is a 2-hour live Twitch stream during which you will be briefed on what is happening on Fandom, with the latest news and updates.
This session will include 3 special guest, who will each bring a different set of expertise to the table:
- Joey Merkel, Director of Social Strategy & Operations: discover what social media can do for your wiki.
- Maggie Owens, Sr. Analyst - Site Analytics: observe how Fandom tracks and explains traffic trends on the platform.
- Max Spector, Director of Brand Design: learn how the new logo came to be over the rebranding process.
After the presentations, some questions, previously submitted by admin…
After all the blogs Fandom shared with previews, FandomDesktop is now LIVE for you to check out! During this time, logged-in users will be able to switch from Oasis to FandomDesktop as their wiki experience through an opt-in toggle, found in an on-site banner and in user preferences. You will also be able to switch back by changing your user preferences.
Please do note that not everything has been developed yet, so expect changes to still occur. However, you already get access now so editors and admins get used to the new design and, especially, the admins can prepare this community for full migration, which will come early this summer.
Admins, you should definitely check out the new Theme Designer and the FandomDesktop preparation guide for a…
Hey all! As you know, 2021 will be the year of the Fandom/Gamepedia desktop skin redesign, called FandomDesktop. In order to help communities better prepare, understand, but especially get insight and be able to get involved by sharing their feedback, Fandom has been releasing blog posts with the latest updates on the design.
The latest reveal is "A deeper look at Navigation on FandomDesktop", which gives you some more insights and mock-ups for how search, profile submenu, and notifications will look, and some insights as to how the decision about the new local navigation came to be.
If you have a few minutes to spare, I strongly recommend giving it a read (click here). Should you have any questions or concerns about it, please do not hesita…
Hey all! I'm currently gathering feedback regarding the upcoming change to the desktop skin, called FandomDesktop, to help me understand any of the concerns and issues this community may face due to this change, so they can be properly addressed during testing and before we get to rollout. The change is introduced at large in this staff blog, which I advise everyone to read if you haven't already.
Some notable points:
- Light and Dark modes - A wiki can basically have two theme options, and users can pick their preference. Admins will be able to style both in ThemeDesigner.
- Fluid width - The content area can be expanded, and the right rail can also be collapsed, for a wider article page. This too will be user preference.
- Global navigation - Instea…
Hey all! I am super glad that I get to reach out for this and ask for your input! Some of you may have already read the blog announcement on Community Central about this, but for those who haven't: Fandom announced that it would focus the upcoming 2 weeks on an all-hands quality of life project -- read "a two-week bug squashing effort"!
So my question to you all is: are there perhaps any bugs that have been annoying you since whenever UCP came along? This project is the perfect opportunity for you to get the word out about those things! Just drop your report in the comments here, leave me a message, or even reach out to me via Discord if you're more comfortable doing that, and I'll do my best to get your voice heard. These don't have to be t…
My name is Lucas (Playsonic2), and I have just been assigned here to be the Fandom Wiki Manager for The Sopranos Wiki.
I am here to both help the community and be a point of contact with full-time Fandom staff if you are ever in need of communicating something. Beyond that, as there are no active admins here (as of writing this), I can potentially be of assistance with implementing new designs and working on updates for the wiki's main page, the navigation menu, among other areas of the wiki - all with the goal of making it thrive.
If you ever have any questions or issues relating to the wiki, editing, etc. or even just want to mention some new ideas, please don't hesitate to reach out to me on my talk page.
See you around!

I've gotten really into this series in recent months because of it's 20th anniversary and have accumulated a lot of knowledge on it. Naturally I came here to learn a lot of that knowledge in between watching the series itself on Amazon Prime video. This is a great wiki that has the perfect potential to be a library of any and all information we can catalogue pertaining to The Sopranos, but I've noticed it's become less active in recent times, including many inactive administrators, and many pages have suffered for it.
Things in particular I've seen are a lot of red links, even on many highly detailed and for the most part well written pages on characters, places, and subjects that are important to the series. I've even noticed a lot of vand…
