This will be the first in a series in Rick riordan presents, Mark Aloha and the Gods of Hawaii, Polynesia , Mirconesia and the pacfic islands.
What's on your mind?
Hello all, I wanted to ask if anyone has experienced any bugs editing Riordan Wiki or with using Discussions. For the next two weeks at Fandom we are focusing on smashing as many bugs as possible, so if you've run into any smaller "quality of life" issues or bad user experiences on Fandom that bother you, let me know now & we might be able to get that resolved in the coming weeks!
For those who haven't seen me around before, I'm Alex, the Wiki Representative from Fandom assigned to help out the Riordan Wiki (& a big Percy Jackson/Kane Chronicles fan). You can always reach out to me, here or on Discord @ Ursuul#0575, if you need help on Fandom :)
Guys I have been detached from PJ for about 2 to 3 months ...So I dont know about when the pj series will come.... So can any of you guys pls tell me when will the series will be on air???And if the auditions are open.....Thank you guys....
Good morning, Kirkburn from Fandom Support here.
We're in the process of enabling a new feature on your wiki: automatic draft saving in the classic editor! We are looking to roll this out across Fandom in the near future, but want to stress test it first and get feedback.
Essentially, this tool autosaves your planned changes every few seconds, so if your browser crashes or you accidentally close the tab, reopening the editor will bring you back to the same place!
You will have the option to discard the draft, and drafts are automatically discarded when you save your changes.
It should activate on your wiki within the next day or so.
If you run into any problems with it, please send a note in to Special:Contact/bug so that we can take a look!
Thanks for your time :)
Hey guys! We recently seeked assistance from a Vanguard to give our infoboxes a new look. We set them up to go live a couple hours ago. Check out any of the character pages, such as Percy Jackson; book, or battle pages and let us know what you think!
Hello! I've gotten a couple questions about this before. Yes, all 'Read Riordan' books are welcome on the site and the characters from that. You can read more about Rick Riordan's imprint series here.
Anonymous editing has been turned on since the COPPA rules have changed. We will be testing to see if there is a change in traffic by turning on anon again. Don't be alarmed if you see anonymous editor.
After a discussion with our administration team, we have reluctantly decided to close the wiki. We no longer have the needed number of privileged users to help maintain this wiki. Therefore, we have decided that the only option is closure. Thanks for all the great times guys. Maybe we'll all see each other again someday.
~RisenPhoenix, Riordan Wiki administration team.
I am excited to announce that Discussions is now enabled for your community!
You can check it out in the community app, if you have it, or in your browser! This "web" version also works well in your mobile device’s web browser, so if you’re on the go, you can still use the link above. Discussions is a great way to grow your community by bringing in users who so far only know about the app!
You can read more about how Discussions works on the help page. Admins and Discussions Moderators automatically have all of the moderation options. As you start to get participation from app users, keep an eye out for good moderator candidates. I can help you contact them as well (sometimes reaching out can be tough since they may not get talk notifications).
I encourage you to think about ways to promote wiki editing to the app & Discussions users. For example, you can post a link to a page for a current project every now and then, or to a page that welcomes new editors with tips on where to start editing. You can also foster high-quality conversations by posting questions and prompts, running polls/surveys, ask users to share their personal history with their favorite of the series, etc.
We’ve just completed work on a great new moderation tool - the ability for any user to report a post so it will be reviewed by a moderator or admin. This feature is available on the desktop and mobile web version already, and will be coming to the Community App in an update at the end of this month. Next week we will also be adding the option for mods and admins to "lock" threads and prevent further replies.
Thanks so much for being willing to be an early adopter on this feature. Please use this thread for any questions, ideas and feedback. We want to hear from you, and learn more about how you want to use this feature! We’ve got lots more work to do and I’ll be updating you as new additions come along.
Essentially you get to nominate and vote for your favorite CANON couples. I've already submitted Percabeth since they are the largest represented canon couple from our series. It would be awesome if others could also submit the same (Percy & Annabeth) so we can be represented for the final 64!
You can read about the event and submit your answer here.

We actually skipped doing it last year because we though that this wiki would be dead by then, but alas it's NOT!
READ THIS WHOLE THING BEFORE DOING ANYTHING
I was thinking that to begin with someone would recommend a category they would like to see and then others will KUDOS/UPVOTE if they like that category.
Again, read this whole page before suggesting a new category or you will be WARNED.
So far we have a general list of of categories as followed from 2013. You can asked for some of these to be changed or renamed or whatever:
- Best User of 2015
- Best Anti-Vandalism Fighting User
- Favorite Chat User
- Best Comment of 2014/2015 (You will physically have to go find the comment from a forum or blog post)
- Best Fight of the Antaeus Arena (2014/2015)
- Sexiest User
- Most Helpful User
- Best New User (Can only be from 2015)
- Best Blog (Can be from da old days aka before blog control started)
- Most Likely to Win The Hunger Games
- Best Nickname
- Biggest Heart
- Class (Wiki) Clown
- Most Improved User
I don't know how long I will take submissions. Maybe for around 5-10 days or so since there is no set date yet.
Depending on the amount of submissions and votes for new categories will determine the amount there will be.
Hey guys! We're going to participate in Wikia's Global Goals, which you can read about in a blog here. The main cause is to spread awareness. On the official website, there is a list 17 global goals to achieve in 15 years.
Now I understand that you guys may think some of these are impossible
because they are but it's never too late to try to make a difference in your community. Here are some cool ways to get involved that only take a few CLICKS.
There are lots of other websites to help others out too! Tell us how you get involved in your local community or any other click sites that could help people out. Thanks!
For more information on the merger please go here.
Hi everyone. Forums have gotten really popular lately so the admins have decided to create a forum policy that everyone can follow. You may have noticed some differences around the forums about making sure to read and comply with the rules.
We recently made four different people moderators who will help the admins monitor the forums.
You can read the forum policy here, but I just want to make a quick overview of the most important parts.
- Your thread must meet all the requirements that are listed in our forum policy. If they break any of them, they will be deleted and we will give you a warning.
- Put thread on the correct board.
- Do not make long forum titles.
- Please follow these rules while on the forum.
- Respect the decision of admins and moderators.
- Do not post photos unless on the OT board
- Do not pyramid quote.
- Do not kudos your own post
- Do not double post. There is a reason the edit comment exists.
- Be nice and courteous.
Again these are not all the rules, so make sure to read over this. Most of you comply with these rules to begin with, but make sure to read it. The policy was created so we have universal standards for everyone to follow in writing.
Have a good day. c:
Apparently, someone has started a petition towards Dreamworks/Disney to start a cartoon version of PJO. And it actually has signatures. It currently sits above 12,500 signatures and the goal is 15,000.
Someone made an animated opening for HoO on Tumblr like two months, and it has over 20,000+ weblogs.
You can read and sign the petition here.
What do you think? Of course, there is that one video of
Wikia is slaying us with yet another ugly layout change.
- The column on the right with the Wiki Activity, Chat, Videos, Photos -- it's all being eliminated. Well, apart from the Wiki Activity, which is now the only thing in the column for whatever reason.
- All of the information is being crammed into the center-right of the page, so that on the right is the Wiki Activity box (though once you go below the box all of the information reaches the right) and the left is where Wikia allows you to Tweet, Facebook, Google+ the page. That's also where the new edit button is going to be.
- The font is yet again being changed to be 12pt font for Arial. The headers are now being bolded, enlarged and spaced out as well.
- There are now advertisements in the middle of pages :)))))) They basically look like a photo is supposed to be there. In the middle of the page and like a picture.
- The Navigation menu is being changed. While the headers for the navigation menu essentially remain the same, the categories per that header are in a list-like formation and the dropdown menu comes from the side now. So much for its beautiful customization ;-;
The two Wikis that are currently being tested with the new layout are American Horror Story Wiki and Tardis Data Core Wiki. The changes only work on articles so far and have yet to parallel with the main page.
Alternatively, you can see these changes with any wiki, though like I said before they don't properly correspond. To see these changes, just add "?useskin=venus" to the end of the URL. Here is how some of the pages on this Wiki would look with the layout:
There hasn't been any firm date for when this layout will be implemented for all wikis. Hopefully, we can change back to Oasis or Monobook through our preferences, but it is probably customarily the Venus layout for when the wiki is randomly clicked by an anon. Note that the design is still under construction, so some of what we see may not be there when it's implemented.
What do you think? Do you think it's ugly? How will this affect your other Wikis? Comment below yo
