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:

Interactive Maps

  • 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.
  • It will become available to all communities who want it within the next few months.
  • Check out this example on Avatar Wiki.

MediaWiki Upgrade

  • Fandom will soon be upgrading from MediaWiki 1.33 to MediaWiki 1.37.
  • Changes will be minimal compared to UCP, with mostly backend changes.
  • The rollout will happen within the first few months of 2022.

Interactive Videos

Trivia Quiz Expansion

  • We will be expanding our Trivia Quiz feature within the next few months.
  • Quizzes proved to be popular with fans as we experimented with them in 2021.
  • They are currently available in a select number of Discussions communities.

New Fandom Team Members

  • Quincy Carroll recently joined Fandom as Chief Product Officer.
  • We are hiring a Senior Community Manager, Creator Outreach on our Community Experience team.
  • We are hiring a Senior Community Partnerships Manager, Gaming on our Community Activations team.
  • We will be bringing more Wiki Reps onto the Community team.
