Admins got a message recently that told us about the new feature that Wikia is planning on launching. It's a type of Blog, read more here. The purpose of this thread is to ask everyone how they feel about having it hear. Will it cause more deadweight users? Should we try it first? What do you all think? There is an option to disable the blog articles. We need an answer by Tuesday evening.

Support[edit]

Oppose[edit]

Ah well, it's been more than a week... but still. I don't use it, and I find it annoying how the RC are sometimes cluttered with new blog comments... and I don't know why it annoys me every time blog comments appear as they are considered new pages... --Yer mom 03:34, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

I don't like it, it clogs up the RC with new comments, and well, I hate blogs. Ultima 12:57, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

What are we...LiveJournal now? Not fond of the blog, either. BebopKate 22:08, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

I say we try it for a month, and then if it is a waste of time, we get rid of it. Mind you, in my opinion, blog just sounds like Useless namespace to me

I was talking to other users from the #FFWiki IRC and they think of it as a way for Wikia to slowly make Wikia into another one of those social networking places ;} Basically it's a huge userblog that people can comment on. Used when people have something to say, or want to rant on about their fanboi dreams and other things.

D8 Soon they'll ask us to upload personal images and hunt us down like ebil kidnappers!!!! *panic*

Errr I don't realy see it all that useful... that's what userspace is for ne? To rant and to add walkthoughs and to say how much we all love Sephiroth certain characters... >.> If that's all there is to this new feature I agree with Ultima, try and then discard decide...

Xiggie Buy / Sell Welcome! What do you wanna do?

Untitled-1.png I think that Wikis should not be turned into blogspots... and it seems kind of useless here...

and if this is intended to increase the wikis social-side, it's definitely a waste of time, since we are (by my standards) super-social already!

But I agree with you there, Yer Mom, that these blogs are most likely just what you'd put on your userspace, but with a comment section!

I also agree with Ultima, that it should be tested before declined. and who knows, maybe it'll turn out to be good for the wiki (or something...)

Honestly, it sounds like a glorified user talk page to me. We have plenty of places for people to socialize already, and plenty of issues with the ones we've got.

It might be good for something like a fanon wiki, but it doesn't look like something we need at the moment.

I wish people would've opposed when the window was still open. But, we can take them out of the RC. (Edit) Anyone oppose to that? If not, I can do it with a couple edits.

Well at least out of the RC sounds good enough. ^^

Keyblade-Blk.png I think it should definitely be taken out of the RC. It's gotten almost as bad as Usertalk pages.

Done. Though blog comments are still there, the bulk is gone. People who still want to see the blog edits can check off the box where it says "exclude namespace".
