Hi there! Quick update on FANDOM's end-of-the-year term. First, there will be changes with featured videos: as of the end of this December, "Featured" Video will be receiving some trial run experiments in hopes of improving its quality, reasons being that videos featured on a page tend to be outdated or spout all the information the user can already read on the article. The main goal will be to figure out how to complement wiki content. Because of that, you might receive a video called "The Loop" play for anonymous users, that will be meant purely to collect visitation data in vein of the Global Taxonomy method. It won't affect all users, so you might not notice. But if you want to learn more, you can go to the blog post. For more info on Fandom's year in review, you can check out the community post. Let me know if you have any questions, and happy holidays!
Hi again! I'm delighted to inform you there's a new Editor Rewards program honoring the hard work of users with awards those that have gained recognition for their contributions. Details are on this blog post. If you could give some feedback at this blog post, it would be greatly appreciated. Please message me if you have any questions!
Hi there! I would like to inform you there is a new Special:Analytics page you can request and access on the admin dashboard! In this way, you can use it to keep track of the number of edits daily, and which users are contributing. More info is available on the Help:Analytics dashboard and the blog post. If you already knew about it but have any questions, let me know!
Firstly, as both wiki are licenced as CC-BY-SA, the "BY" part of the licence requires that the original source of the text be attributed, as per this article by Fandom staff.
However when TFWiki and this wiki split some eleven years ago now, it was agreed that the two wiki would not copy each other's content, as having two essentially identical wiki would be counter productive.
So it would be very much appreciated if you would please not copy and paste category pages from TFWiki to here.
I've just promoted Firefox20z, Vozhan and Combatbot2015 to bureaucrats. From what I heard The Rim of the Sky isn't planning on editing here anymore, so he didn't get bureaucrat powers. When FANDOM's staff is back next week, we hopefully make further progress with the merger.
I've just blocked another IP address who created nonsensical pages with Russian script characters. That's the disadvantage of enabling anon editing. However, if it is wished to keep anon editing enabled, we should keep it this way. On Zoids Wiki anon editing is enabled as well.
TFWiki.net split from this wiki about eleven years ago as the editors did not like how Wikia/Fandom were imposing changes on them. There has never been any plan to merge the two wikis and I don't think Fandom would ever turn this one into a redirect to TFWiki at any rate.
I might not have introduced myself yet, but I'm SilverFlight, this wiki's Wiki Manager, AKA your go-to liaison for direct FANDOM staff help. I'm writing to let you know for you and Discord chatters out there that Fandom now has an official Discord server for all Fandom and Gamepedia editors. You can learn more at the blog post. Let me know if you have any questions!
