    Wikia's big new thing is Fandom, we get it. However, it seems very random, often poorly edited, and unaccountable, so far. I didn't really care what was going on with fandom for the most part. Some of it was good, lots of it was bad, but it mostly wasn't annoying... until this: The Myths that Forged ‘WarCraft’ (By: George Botsov June 1, 2016). This fandom article really annoyed me. It wasn't good, it had like 4 full links to WoWWiki (some of them to redirects), and I fear it will cause people to associate this article with WoWWiki.

    I don't know who George Botsov is, but he is probably a good person and a fan of the Warcraft universe. He may even be a regular WoWWiki user. However, he should have let someone in the WoWWiki community review h…

    This blog is to briefly explain why I made the switch to new-style forums. You can be one of the the first to post at Special:Forum.

    You probably don't remember or didn't see, but I posted a blog back in October 2015 requesting feedback for switching over to Message Walls and New-Style Forums. Clearly, very few people read it and I only got two comments and both were concerned about talk pages vs. Message Walls. So, neither topic is apparently important to most users. This change assumes no one feels too strongly about forums.

    So, why did I make the change without more followup feedback?

    1. No one gave feedback against making a forum change.
    2. Forum activity has been extremely low.
    3. New-style forums are better supported by Wikia.
    4. New-style forums are…

    Hello WoWWikians, this is the evolving day 2 blog for BlizzCon 2015!

    Raylan13 and I will be covering BlizzCon for Wikia and WoWWiki. As is usually the case, I will be focusing on Warcraft universe stuff and Raylan13 will be be bouncing around covering as much Blizzard stuff as he can with more focus possibly on non-Warcraft stuff and cool things like contests.

    Like for day 1, this an "evolving" blog, so I will try to add short summaries of things we see as the day goes on, but since I don't know when I'll have access to update it, I can't predict when this will happen... but it will happen.

    Today the main focus will be Legion updates and various answers and feedback from the World of Warcraft D…

    Of course the main focus will be the movie (of course), but I'm sure we'll get some Legion updates, but if yo…

    New-style Forums are accessed by Special:Forum (the link will be red until we enable them) and have a nice large-sized threaded layout with a mini-left-sidebar on each post with the avatar of the user who posted that links to their message wall (which I'll cover next). You can also give kudos (similar to Facebook Likes), if you think a post is particularly good. If you've ever used the Community Central forums, then you know how they work. If not, you can read more about them at Help:Forum.

    Message Walls are a replacement for user talk pages that have a similar style and working to new-style Forums. Since the new-style Forums usually link to Message Walls instead of user talk pages, they sort of go together. I like Message Walls less than use…
