Since Descendants is over...what will happen to this wikia? To be honest, I don't want it to go away since who knows what's going to happen with the franchise. I mean, since we're getting 5, in my opinion please don't hate, godaweful High School Musicals we can squeeze out a little but more with Descendants right?
Of course, the wikia will continue. Even if Descendants was over (which is doubtful), the wikia will continue. It’s not like it would disappear just because the franchise ended, since the Desc fandom is still very much alive and this wikia continues to serve its purpose as a community for Desc fans and information.
Greetings! My name is SilverFlight, and I'm the Wiki Manager for the Descendants Wiki! I'll be the liaison to full-time FANDOM staff and services, meaning I'm here to assist in any inquiries, issues, conundrums, general questions, editing, etc. you or the Wiki might have! If you have any questions, leave me a message at my message wall.
In addition, I've got some exciting news! FANDOM has upgraded its utilities to include a massively-expanded MediaWiki platform featuring all of its extensions, and now has a Discord you can reply and send messages to on the official FANDOM channel. You can read more on the blogposts listed here. If you want to learn about who comes and goes to the Descendants Wiki and what pages are the most popular, you can do that with the new Special:Analytics feature! To learn about it, you can check out help and on the blog post.
Hi again! I'm delighted to inform 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!
Fran look, i found a cardboard cutout of Audrey some days ago. I added it to the page of Audrey, some users are telling me that i can't add this image because it is not a official picture, that it's just a cardboard cutout, but i don't agree. Are they right? Or am i right?
One more thing. You can get an answer from our admins much faster if you will join our Discord. Posting a message on our walls is ok, but if you need something ASAP, then Discord is your best chance to get it.
Once again - Discord do not require any app to use it. If you are on pc/laptop, you can open it in your browser without any apps. You can use this link to visit their website. There will be two options - install their program or just open discord in your browser.
You can access Discord by visiting their website. You are perfectly able to access it without downloading it. You can scroll down to the bottom of the website and click “Sign up now.” It should also be advised that you do this with a computer, since the website discord is very difficult to use on a mobile device.
However, I highly suggest you do not even try. Due to your inexperience and lack of computer resourcefulness, it is highly unlikely you will be promoted to an admin. Many apologies.
Each one of our current admins and moderators spent months fighting for their position, serving to our wiki and proving themselves to be worthy. You appeared out of nowhere, you did nothing to inprove this wiki, you failed such a simple thing as joining discord. And now, after one single disapproval from our Vixie, you surrender without even a fight. You are unfitting to be an admin. Not here, nor anywhere else.
Heya! :) I've got some super cool news for you! As Brian said earlier, Disney is partnering with your wiki in the run-up to Descendants 3! One of the things he mentioned was that we'd have a new design for the wiki ready as we got closer to the release date, and I'm happy to note that we've now got something to show you! So please head over to our test wiki and let us know what you think!
We have taken a look at the test wiki. In general, we are pleased, even though we may add a different background graphic, which we are currently working on. The theme colours are good, we'd like to keep those same colours for the final version.
We do have a question, though. In the Characters section, where did the pictures of the characters came from?
Hey there :) Thanks for writing back! All the graphics you see, including the character gallery, background and work mark, were provided directly by the Disney Channel. Since they did give us the background, we wanted to sound you out about possibly keeping it through about 3 August. Would you mind having it for about seven weeks over the course of (mainly) June and July?
Hey again :) I think maybe I confused you. Sorry about that!
Would you be okay with using their background — the one currently on display at the test wiki — for about seven weeks, starting in June? For that period of time, Disney would like to see their supplied background, if it's okay with you.
Disney approved the design we shared with you, so I put it up today. Again, they only need it here until the second week of August, so 6 or 7 weeks.
I've done a few things to your CSS that are slightly more extensive than we normally do on a wiki redesign, so I wanted to tell you about them.
First, I folded Common.css into Wikia.css. Since Fandom now has only one skin, there's no need to have both of these anymore. I've clearly marked the start point of the old Common.css code, which you'll find at the very bottom of Wikia.css. This code combination not only makes things more efficient, but it also makes it super clear where imports should go. If you have both Common and Wikia, it's always a little confusing whether the imports should go at the top of Common or Wikia. This way, there's no doubt.
Second, I've commented out a few elements that would clash with the current design. Don't worry, though, I've not deleted anything. And I've left behind notes in the code and in the page history which explains each step I took.
The biggest change I made in this regard was to temporarily remark out most portable infobox coloring. I hadn't even thought about needing to do this when I first started talking with you, but it turned out that the PI theme colors were intricately connected with the previous color palette. That meant that the infoobxes were mostly illegible.
Again, I've preserved all the color choices in the code. They've just been remarked out. So if you do decide to go back to the old color palette, it'll be clear how to do that. On the other hand, if you get used to this color palette and would like help figuring out a new color scheme that matches this one, please reach out to me, and I'll be happy to help you out!
Indeed, if you find anything that you need help with, or things that don't "look right", lemme know and I'll lend a hand!
Thanks again very much for being such a great partner!
