Hi all! I have an awesome update regarding the Unified Community Platform (UCP).
As a reminder, the UCP is a new unified platform giving users the up-to-date MediaWiki experience including the latest features! More can be found here as a reminder.
In terms of new updates, Fandom staff posted three staff blogs:
Unified Community Platform: The Vision, Purpose, and Process - This update provides a clearer idea as to the end goals of the platform. This includes mobile editing, latest features, customization options - and more! Mobile editing will be an especially popular addition, given the rising number of mobile users across Fandom.
Creating new wikis on the Unified Community Platform - On March 11, Fandom will allow users to create new communities on the UCP! Users will be able to get a first look at the new platform. The wiki creation process will also aim to prevent duplicate wikis being created, allowing for users to contribute to active communities and be part of a Fandom project viewed by massive amounts of passionate fans!
Profile and Message Wall on the Unified Community Platform - Profiles are getting an update on the UCP, with a cleaner design and also more freedom for users to express themselves. More fields have been added and you can now add a banner image like you can on Twitter and other social media sites. Message Wall is also receiving a lift, getting a cleaner design more in line with Discussions to keep things consistent.
What do you think of these updates? Comment below and feel free to leave questions on those blog posts so staff can respond! :)
This discussion post is for those who are interested in the Home Alone-Saw crossover film theory, which alludes that Kevin McCallister and John Kramer are the same character. Although, I'm not into it at all; this post was made only to discuss about it and extend it (as well as correcting the mistakes you consider). Here are some questions you can answer to help you fulfill this theory:
Is there any conflict or hole between the Home Alone and Saw plots for this theory?
What Home Alone traps do you find similar to Saw traps?
For the Home Alone part, only the 2 original Home Alone films were included in the theory. Would you include the other Home Alone films as well?
Would you like to see "Saw remasters" for the Home Alone films? If so, what changes would you propose?
And lastly, could you include The Good Son as part of this theory too (since many people have been considering about it as a part between Home Alone and Saw)?
Besides that, you can also tell anything else about this theory here!
I'm here to let you know that staff have exciting plans for the future of video on Fandom, including the future of what was Featured Video (FV) and what is replacing it.
A replacement for FV, titled The Loop, is set to be a mini-show that will be different for each vertical, highlighting the latest news from topics relating to that vertical. The best bit? These videos will use wiki articles and will encourage users to visit the wikis featured in the videos to find out more.
As a new episode of The Loop will be released weekly, you will see a wide variety of wikis of featured so there is every chance yours will be featured too!
Please see the latest staff blog for more details and feel free to ask me any questions!
Secondly, staff posted a blog about Fandom in 2019 and the amazing things achieved! Here's to a great 2020. :)

Disney announced that they are "reimagining" Home Alone. I personally am not interested in the idea at all (to be fair, I haven't liked any Home Alone releases since the second one), but I'll approach it with an open mind.
What does everyone else think?
What does this tell you?
