Hey Gusey! I'm Lostris, and I am the Wiki Manager assigned to the Smosh Wiki; I will be taking over from Kylara as part of on internal switch. No worries, just like here, I am not here to take over. As she noted before, our job is to help the community on a more local leven and serve as an easy to reach liaison between contributors and full-time Fandom staff. As such, I will be your primary point of contact should any assistance be needed, so if you ever have a question or issue relating to the wiki, editing, etc., don't hesitate to leave a message on my wall and I will do my best to help. If I am unable to solve your issue, I will be able to get in contact with a staff member that can. Aside from assisting this community with any possible issues you may have, I am also here to help you out with the fun stuff, so if you have an idea or fun project that you don't quite know how to get off the ground or that you feel could use a little bit more Fandom love, do not hesitate to reach out and pitch me your idea! I will also be getting in contact with the rest of the admins in this community to introduce myself and inform them of my position.
Additionally, I want to congratulate you and the rest of this community on keeping this wiki going for so long! Coming Wednesday, this wiki will be blowing out twelve candles! That's an amazing achievement of which you may all be extremely proud! I look forward to getting to know you and working together with this community!
Hi again! Checking in to see how things are going. I'm also letting communities know about a couple more things. 2019 was a big year for Fandom, and you can check out the staff blog post This Year at Fandom - 2019.
You might have noticed that some wikis are showing new video content. The new video series, called The Loop, will have new videos weekly and will be replacing the old featured videos that were placed at the top of some wiki pages. Read more about it in the Community Central staff blog post An Update on the Future of Featured Video.
Hope you're doing well, and let me know if you have any questions!
Hello! My name is Kylara , and I'm the Fandom Wiki Manager for Smosh Wiki, so I'm going around introducing myself to the active admin here. I'm here to help the community and be a liaison to full-time Fandom staff. If you ever have any questions or issues relating to the wiki, editing, layout, design, templates, or anything of the sort, please contact me on my message wall!
I'm going around to let communities know about a couple things. The first is a new feature called Global Taxonomy, which will better personalize wiki recommendations for you and visitors. People who would be interested in your wiki content will be better able to find it, and it will help you discover content that’s interesting and relevant to you. You can read more about in the Community Central staff blog post Introducing Global Taxonomy.
SmoshCast episode titles on podcast platforms differ a bit from the videos. I personally think that, since it is a podcast, the podcast titles should be used for article titles and infobox navigation and whatnot, but I wanted your opinion. Which do you think should be used?
Unfortunately, I am unable to access the podcast platforms, which is why I have been relying on the video titles. As the article pages I have made have been based on the video upload (thumbnail, description, comments/fan interaction), I think they should keep the video names, and it is easier for me to create the pages as i have access to the video names. However, I do think we can put it in the Trivia section or in the main intro if there is a name change on the podcast platforms than the videos? Hope that makes sense :)
