  • Hi again! Were you able to look at my previous message at all regarding changes to the wiki at all please?

    I'm also just dropping by to let you know of a new scheme introduced at Fandom called Editor Rewards. This is a great new scheme designed to reward editors on Fandom, with merchandise ranging from free video games, hoodies, collectibles, and more!

    To find out more about the scheme, please feel free to read the Introduction to Editor Rewards blog post Fandom staff posted. Also, please do leave feedback in the comments section of that blog as staff will be able to respond quickly and answer any questions you may have.

    Thanks!

  • Hey!

    Introducing Special:Analytics! A new statistics tracking tool for admins on all Fandom wikis.

    This feature includes some really insightful statistics that should allow you guys to inform some wiki decisions, such as:

    • Top viewed pages
    • # of page views (daily over the past 30 days)
    • Desktop vs mobile sessions
    • and more!

    A big statistic in the feature is that over half of your viewership view the wiki from mobile phones (53%). This means they are viewing articles on this wiki through the mobile skin. With over half of your viewers viewing the wiki from mobile devices, it is important to accommodate them.

    One key way to do this would be to look at your current article layout. So, taking an episode article like The DVD, it looks really good on desktop and the JS tabs make it so you don't have to switch articles to view their content.

    This issue with this comes from a mobile reader's perspective, as you can see from the screenshot below:

    GumballEpisodeTabsMobileView

    As you can see (and feel free to try it here) the tab links don't work so viewers can't see the other articles. This is a big problem for those readers and for you guys as the majority of your readerbase are missing out on content that desktop readers can read easily. This means you run the risk that readers and users won't return to the wiki due to the difficult mobile experience on their end and it will slow any wiki growth.

    In order to get around this, a simple solution would be to not use JS tabs, and use a system the SpongeBob Wiki uses and simply have the tabs take readers to different articles, like here (but in the infobox in this case). The links work in mobile and look good in desktop too. There are other options too and I would be happy to help with and discuss those, but I wanted to offer the simple one initially. :)

    Sorry if this seems a bit overwhelming, but this is a really good use of the new analytics tool, to show you how you can help your readers and users.

    For more help with the tool, please feel free to ask me questions and also refer to these two super useful articles:

    Thanks!

    • Hey there! Just checking to see if you received this message. This is quite an important thing to think about rectifying on the wiki as it does impact mobile readers. :)

  • Hey there,

    I wrote an article this afternoon about the recurring mentioning of Switzerland (Article titel Switzerland) (yeah I know, a kind of a niche topic, but the reason being that I searched for such an article myself and didn't find any information here so I decided to quickly write one myself). Since the joke recurs quite a few times I thought an article would be warranted.

    I'm not sure what exactly happened but when I came back I couldn't find any trace of it anymore: In my contribution history the pictures I uploaded are there but the article doesn't show up at all. Could you help me understand what happened? I think I did everything correctly regarding layout and writing, but I haven't written for wikia for some time so any feedback would be appreciated.



    Cheers

    Nick

    • Hey, sorry for hopping into the conversation, I'm not 202, but I think I can help you.
      Basically, the article you wrote did appear, but some of us agreed that it's not really something that should be written in an article, or at least not with such formatting...
      I marked your page as a candidate for deletion so it soon got deleted.
      Don't worry, though, I think the instances of Switzerland being mentioned as a joke could be a pretty interesting topic, but instead of making a page, try to make a blog post about it.
      Since the formatting of the page was not really consistent with other pages and it felt a bit out of place, I think making a blog would be your best option.
      I wish you the best of luck!
      Have fun editing!
      Marvin

    • Hey thanks for the heads up! I guess I'll do that in that case.

      Would you mind letting me know what about the formatting I did wrong? What should I have done differently?

      Also, could you please send me the text of the article I wrote? I sadly don't have a copy of it and it would make my life a lot easier if I didn't have to look up everything again.

      Chhers

    • Here you go.

      The mentioning of Switzerland is a recuring plot device and small running gag in ''[https://theamazingworldofgumball.fandom.com/wiki/The_Amazing_World_of_Gumball The Amazing World of Gumball]''. It is occasionally mentioned on the side humorously or used to advance the plot.

      ==Background==
      
      It is unknown what the background or reason for the frequent mention of Switzerland in the show is or how the running gag came to be.
