Fandom is celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month. It’s important to celebrate AAPI Month as Asian Americans have contributed significantly to American culture—science, sports, activism and entertainment to name a few.
What is it?
Celebrating it in May we extend this initiative for all to celebrate! This year’s theme will focus on Visibility and Amplification - shining a light on individuals, amplifying voices, and creating spaces for people to share their story.

Fandom recently announced that Interactive Maps are live on the platform. As a recap, Interactive Maps is a feature available on Fandom where communities can design their own customized maps. You can place pins on an image that will lead to wiki articles when clicked on!
Interactive Maps are available to all communities, accessible from the the "Explore" menu on the local navigation, or by visiting Special:AllMaps directly in the URL. Map creation and editing is currently limited to those with the user right editinteractivemap, which is automatically given to administrators and Fandom Staff.
If you're excited about this feature and would like to start playing around with one, reach out to an active admin to receive the necessary rights.…
Recently, Fandom staff posted updates to the Fandom Wiki Rules and Blocking Policy. As a reminder, this is a global policy to aid the wellbeing of communities that all wikis have been following since 2021. These new changes go into effect on April 4th.
- An added section outlining what it means to be a good admin. Some tips include being open to users asking for advice, not acting as if you are the “owner” of the wiki, assuming good faith etc
- The “Need ideas for rules?” section was moved to its own page and added more example rules to be used if needed.
- An added section requiring a pathway to adminship. This is a system your community can set up to allow for long-time users who care about the wiki and community to eventually become admins…
Further to my last post, I have updates on Women's History Month, MediaWiki 1.37, and quizzes!
Women's History Month in March
For Women’s History Month, Fandom intends to spotlight creators, IPs, and women behind-the-scenes at Fandom and editors that “break the bias” by forging a path that supports women's equality. Read more here!
MediaWiki 1.37 upgrade
In March, Fandom will starting the upgrade from MediaWiki 1.33 to MediaWiki 1.37. Think of this like a mobile phone software update that brings security updates and more. Upgrading means wikis get the latest updates and improvements.

In 2021, Fandom is releasing a new, redesigned skin called FandomDesktop. We have been gathering feedback in order to help communities prepare for the change, but also so they can offer feedback.
I have more to show you, this time about Navigation for desktop users on the new skin. We have new looks at Search, Profile submenu, and Notifications. There is also insight into why the local navigation decision was made.
Feel free to check them out!
What do you think of these? What do you like/dislike? Would you change anything? Please comment below and the more feedback we receive, the more areas we can give extra attention to. Thanks! --Spongebob456 talk

Check out His POP-Culinary volg!!! :D
I am a huge fan of NCIS, NCIS:LA, and JAG. I watched JAG when it first came out. Only missed a handful of Episodes of NCiS. Have barely gotten to watch many NCIS:LA Episodes, but it's impressive in its own way.
This is a great Wiki. I hope I can find a way to Contribute at some time.

Abby hates it when people m…
So I'm watching the series from the beginning (again), and it strikes me each time how different each character looks and acts compared to later in the series. Abby's hair is shorter and she wears darker colored lipstick making her look a lot whiter in the face than she is later. She also has no objection to lab assistants (watch S1E7 Sub Rosa when she is working on the dead guys computer generated facial reconstruction and Ducky walks in you can see people in lab coats near Major Maspec and we all know that Abby does not share a lab with anyone). She acts more subdued and not as happy go lucky though you never really see her depressed. Tony..... well don't get me started on Tony. He could take up a whole wiki page with all of the changes …

Warning: This blog post will contain Spoilers for the Jan 8,2013 episode "Shabbat Shalom". READ AT YOUR OWN RISK
I have never been so right and so wrong about an episode at the same time. When my family and I saw the previews for last night's episode, we all knew at least one person was going to die. My mother speculated it would be Ziva because she was the only team member not in the emergency waiting room. I argued with her about this for a week, telling her that I didn't think the team would lose another agent, as I thought it was still too soon. I was half right about who I thought would die. When I didn't see Ziva at the hospital, I figured something had to be up with Eli. Mom was hesitant when I voiced the idea that it might be the …
Have our beloved NCIS characters finaly beet the dust? I don't think so, but the last explosions gonna leave a nasty bruse on the building. I wonder If Dukeys gonna quit! what do you Lot think?
So, here I am with a new blog on another Wiki. I've been an NCIS fan since the show premiered in 2003. I'll never forget it. I was thirteen and very excited when I found out that they were doing a spinoff of one of my then favorite shows, JAG. Since that time I feel as though I've gotten emotionally invested in these characters. Which is why the season finale threw me for a total loop.
TV shows very rarely make me cry, but the Season 9 finale came close. The show has only made me cry twice before: once at the death of NCIS Special Agent Caitlin Todd, and again at the death of NCIS Director Jenny Shepard. The heart wrenching season finale, though... almost. It was shocking to be sure. But it's the moments that make us go "Oh, no!" in shock t…
Does anyone else find it strange/annoying that because Kate survived in the what-if scenario of Ari being spotted, basically everyone in Gibb's team broke Rule #12?
Giggity here; who wants Tony from NCIS to slap Gibbs.? I think that would be hilarious, Gibbs is always slapping Tony so he should slap Gibbs back. Yep. That's pretty much it. Thaaanks.
Does anyone know when season 8 airs in Australia?
I have looked but all the websites have the US dates and that is no help to me.
Please Help Me!!!
ceOk, I have to admit, I have not been a fan of NCIS and have not watched it over the years like so many other fans. However, I gained an interest in it recently since there, frankly, has been nothing else on lately and then the marathon over the weekend got me even more interested.
Nevertheless, I have noticed a recurring theme in the episodes I have watched and that is that they are making Israeli Mossad as the really really bad guys. So much so that whenever they do mention Al-Quaida, it is usually with the assistance of members or rouge members of Mossad.
Granted there are good and bad things with every organization. I mean, for example, I don't think that the higher members of Acorn expected prostitution rings within their very large o…
Can anybody help me with this problem. I find lots of downloads that they say are free but then they want you to sign up at $10 a month for 5,000 ringtones. The Apple store doesn't have NCIS for me to download.
Whyed ncis and the new actors may be g in the world have you chang
I got up at five forty-five in the morning, in the middle of the summer, for NCIS, and I'll be downstairs on my couch all day. Yikes. If that isn't addiction, I'm not sure what is, especially since I saw the first three episodes yesterday. And is it just me, or can you not actually see anything under the ice in Iced until the boy wipes away the top layer of the ice?
Okay, I fell asleep during Designated Target, and woke up in Abby's lab with Kate and Abby. Oops.
Oh, and I'm addicted to Tim/Sean's hair- when it's about the length it is now (meaning both in the episode Silver War and the end of season six). I don't like it when it's wicked short or really long.

Some stuff happened to me today. My dad called my goalie coach, a man nicknamed Walshy. In two weeks, minus a few days, I shall disappear for a while when I go to hockey camp in Vermont. Soon after that, I shall go to camp at the University of New Hampshire. I got information on each camp today, including that, for the Vermont one, not only do I have to play paintball and probably wake up extremely sore every day of the week, I also apparently have to sleep on the floor on a thin mat and a sleeping bag, which will only make me more sore. Not to mention the welts I'll get playing paintball.
And tomorrow, I wanted to wake up a little before six, as I'm sure many people on this site also are planning to do, but I forgot, and now it's nearly el…
