Vikings Wiki

Hi all! Hope you're all well - a couple of quick updates from me this July. Diving in!

Introducing Admin Plus[]

Admin Plus is a course designed to teach admins the fundamentals of building and maintaining a wiki community on Fandom. It covers three core areas:

Any users can watch the videos to learn how to contribute to their wikis, but please be aware that Fandom awards badges of completion only to admins who:

  • Have served in an admin role for at least 90 days
  • Manage wikis that have 100 pages or more

This was brought in due to feedback from wiki admins who wanted to know more about what being an admin entails. Admins have also been putting their adminship status on their resume or CV. With Admin Plus, working with a company that specialises in providing badges for professional development, admins can showcase an accredited badge to show course completion wherever they want!

External Platform Guidelines[]

Fandom released its External Platform Guidelines to show how actions taken by Fandom users on other platforms, such as social media platforms, may have repercussions on Fandom wikis. We will generally only block globally based on actions taken on our platform. However, the guideline outlines the limited exceptions for when Fandom may globally block a user for actions taken on a third-party service. This would be for actions between users who have a link with the Fandom platform that threaten the physical or mental safety of one of the parties.
