Hi there! Quick update on FANDOM's end-of-the-year term. First, there will be changes with featured videos: as of the end of this December, "Featured" Video will be receiving some trial run experiments in hopes of improving its quality, reasons being that videos featured on a page tend to be outdated or spout all the information the user can already read on the article. The main goal will be to figure out how to complement wiki content. Because of that, you might receive a video called "The Loop" play for anonymous users, that will be meant purely to collect visitation data in vein of the Global Taxonomy method. It won't affect all users, so you might not notice. But if you want to learn more, you can go to the blog post. For more info on Fandom's year in review, you can check out the community post. Let me know if you have any questions, and happy holidays!
Hi again! I'm happy to introduce to you the new feature called the Global Taxonomy. This formula accumulates wikis a user visits and generates a list of recommended wikis for them to visit. In other words, people who have an interest in a topic or genre you entail will be recommended a chance to visit this wiki! That will be perfect for garnering visitors here. You can read more about it on the blog, plus if you're interested in template use, you can check out this link, too. Hope you find them helpful!
Hi! I'm writing to tell you there's a new Editor Rewards program honoring the hard work of users with awards those that have gained recognition for their contributions. Details are on this blog post. If you could give some feedback at this blog post, it would be greatly appreciated. Please message me if you have any questions!
Hi again! I wanted to inform you of a few things. First, there is a new Special:Analytics page you can request and access on the admin dashboard! You can use this to keep track of pageviews and which articles are popular, and which deserve more attention. More info is available on the Help:Analytics dashboard and the blog post.
I also wanted to let you know that the Charmed Wiki will be undergoing an SEO test; this is for anonymous/non-logged-in users who, when they click on a file page, will be redirected to the article pages where the file was used/input the first time when anonymous/non-logged-in users click the link. We're hoping to help your community eliminate low quality, low value pages and enrich it inside Google searches. The test won't affect logged-in and verified users and there will be no difference; they will still be able to access the file page.
Have any questions? Thoughts? Or do you think there should be a notice in the community? Let me know!
Hi Toonie! I'm SilverFlight, writing to let you know I'll be this wiki's Wiki Manager. That means I am here to help the community and be a liaison to full-time Fandom staff. If you ever have a question or issue relating to the wiki, editing, etc., please contact me on my message wall and I'll get back to you when I'm available and soon as possible!
In addition, I'm happy to inform you that Fandom is upgrading its MediaWiki platform to accommodate MediaWiki extensions. You can read more about here on the blog post.
If you have any questions, let me know how I can help.
How come Phillipa (P. Baxter's mother) and Agnes (P. Russell's mother) have the last name Halliwell if the name Halliwell didn't come until years later through P. Baxter's son in law - Allen Halliwell?
Phillipa and Agnes are the daughters of James Bowen & Iris J Sauls, and the wives of Redmond Baxter & Gordon Russell, so shouldnt their surnames be one of those?
I don't know why they have those names. I'm guessing it's on the family tree, but I'm not sure. Maybe if you bring it up on the forum rather than my talk page, someone might be able to answer your question.
