Hello, Black Caesar! First, congratulations on becoming the newest admin of this fine Wiki! If you need any help from a veteran editor, you just have to ask. And second, since I'm not the admin anymore, would you be so kind to change the protection level on my userpage? I can't edit it anymore. Thanks in advance.
Hi again! I'm just dropping by to let you know of a new scheme introduced at Fandom called Editor Rewards. This is a great new scheme designed to reward editors on Fandom, with merchandise ranging from free video games, hoodies, collectibles, and more!
To find out more about the scheme, please feel free to read the Introduction to Editor Rewards blog post Fandom staff posted. Also, please do leave feedback in the comments section of that blog as staff will be able to respond quickly and answer any questions you may have.
I think the Editor Rewards are a good idea. The Achievements badges are nice and all but sometimes it's good to know a hard working editor can win something even better. So, how exactly do we win those rewards? All we have to do is work hard and hope for the best, right?
Hey! So yeah, the rewards are decided by staff members who work in the associated verticals. So, for example, Movies/TV staff members would discuss users who they feel are deserving of the awards.
If you keep working hard and contributing, you stand a much better chance of getting your name in there for sure. Keep working hard on the wiki and improving it, seeing if there are ways to drive in more viewers and users. :)
I wanted you to know that we will be soon making an interview with Terry Rossio, one of the writers of the Pirates of the Caribbean film series. Given that it would be a 25-questions interview, I would like to know if perhaps you have any questions for him (can be from behind the scenes info to issues about canon).
Write me your questions there as soon as possible, please!
Hey! Sorry for the second message at such short notice! Just letting you know Fandom plans to extend a test it's running on other wikis to this one. It aims at improving the search engine ranking for wikis including this one.
Some details: We will be automatically redirecting anonymous users who land on file pages to the first article page that the file is used on. Our hope is that this will help anonymous users find what they're looking for more easily. During the test, we'll measure whether this has a positive impact on search engine rankings.
Logged-in users will see absolutely no change, so you may not notice anything of this test - I'm just letting you know out of courtesy and in case anonymous users approach you with questions.
This feature includes some really insightful statistics that should allow you guys to inform some wiki decisions, such as:
Top viewed pages
# of page views (daily over the past 30 days)
Most visited files
Desktop vs mobile sessions
So as I mentioned above, this feature is really great as it allows you to see what areas are doing very well and how you can capitalise on them. For example, one of your current most popular searches is Pirates of the Caribbean gallery. It sounds minor, but as quite a few readers are searching using that specific term, you could redirect that term to Category:Galleries so readers can find galleries nice and easily. This is just one way this new feature is super useful!
Hopefully you like this feature, it's been highly requested for some time and we would really appreciate your feedback on it. For more help with it, please feel free to ask me questions and also refer to these two super useful articles:
Hey, sorry for not replying earlier. I've been busy these past few days. I'll take a look at the new feature. As for the file test, it sounds cool. I'm all for increasing efficency of the Wikia. Cheers.
Hi again! You may have already seen it, but Fandom now has an official Discord server! You can chat about all things pop culture and ask your Fandom related questions there too. Here are the details! :)
Thanks, mate. The guy who promoted me, Antonio R. Castro, says you are going to remain an admin here. I hope you don't mind because I could still use some help from an experienced admin, at least for the time being.
Hi. Sorry to bother you but I have one question. Looking over the user rights log I realized this Wikia had 12 admins, not counting you and me. So I thought, they are not the admins anymore, and they are not even active anymore, but it would be nice to have something to serve as a reminder of their service to this Wiki. So, I thought about making a template, similar to the Administrator template, but with a different image and a different quote, and then I would put it in their user pages. What do you think?
Indeed most of them (11 to be earnest) are not active here anymore. I tried to contact those, whose actions were not so long ago, but I had to learn to know they were not more active in any wiki or showed no interest in coming back. Although it is a very good idea to set them a kind of memorial, since they did a lot for this wiki.
Would you allow me, to translate your template for the admins who are not active anymore in the German version of this Wiki?
Hey, mate. How's it going? I just wanted to inform you that I have made another template, this one for the founder of the POTC Wiki, so I thought maybe you could make something similar on the Fluch der Karibik Wiki, for your own founder. You can see it here. Cheers!
Hi, no problem at all! So per the blog, details are quite vague at the moment but what we know is that this upgrade will make life easier for wiki developers and may offer new extensions for us to play around with!
This will take some time as you can imagine as there's a lot of code to unravel - think about undoing tangled string kind of thing. Once done, life will be easier for everyone. :)
