  • On December 19th, 2018, Fandom will remove the ability to highlight forums in favor of using the new announcements feature. These new notifications will be able to be seen no matter what wiki you are logged into. I don't think the move is necessary but, hey, what can you do? Fandom loves "progress," even if the community doesn't. More info: https://community.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:1565872

    I will test the announcements feature to see if it can link to forum threads. They say it should work for message wall links so this should work the same way since they're both "Thread:#######" links.

    Update: It works, but there can only be one announcement at a time.

    • That announncement feature has been available since fall. "New?"

      The Unofficial Geometry Dash Wiki has been using it ever since it was announced in fall.

      It's new relative to the forums anyway. I wish they'd allow 3 announcements at once instead of just one.

    • Sh*t, I think now we'll have to rely on people monitoring the forums and recent changes/wiki activity to find their new important threads now. We aren't just going to manually notify all the active users on their message walls, that would be a pain.

      Forums themselves aren't going away yet so we will just use the announcements feature to link to relevant forums. If more than one need to be announced at once then we can make a blog or something that lists everything that would be highlighted.

    • Yeah, But Fandom also announced that some of the Wiki pages like these which uses the "wikia" at it's respective URL must/will be changed into "fandom" like justdance.fandom.com

      I think we are the only one that never changes that but anyway...

      If the forum highlights would be removed in favor of Announcements feature, well that is... Unfair?

      Like I'm Neutral about that decision. If that was so, well they must make it amusing to those existing fandom/wikia users. Amusing that they are also useful too that the forum highlights don't have.

    • I've been aware of the wikia.com-->fandom.com change for months IIRC.

      So this means that, if someone wants to propose a change with a thread, an admin must put a link to it in an announcement, doesn't it?

      If you are referring to the announcements feature, that is already on and you should have received a notification to come here.

      If you are referring to highlighting that has already been done to this thread.
