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…
Hey again folks!
Fandom is holding another edition of The Downstream on Friday, September 10 at 11am EST.

In 2021, Fandom is releasing a new, redesigned skin called FandomDesktop. We have been reaching out 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
Fandom posted a preview of the new Fandom desktop experience, called FandomDesktop.
The blog outlines some areas which are seeing significant changes such as:
- Native support for Light and Dark mode
- Flexible content area width
- Collapsible right rail
- Redesigned editor toolbar
- And more!
We really want your feedback, both good and bad, so please feel free to fire away! If we know of your concerns beforehand, we can pass that on so those areas can receive extra attention, to help the transition go as smooth as possible.
What do you think of FandomDesktop? Do you have any concerns/highlights? How do you feel it will impact the community?

Hi everyone, I've found a website with the transcripts of each episode but they all lack the characters' names. And I wanted to make a transcript page on here where each episode is written and accounted for. But, sadly, I don't know exactly how. So, to anyone who knows how to make transcript pages, please help. I'd like to make these both for myself and anyone else who writes fanfiction. Thank you in advance to anyone who can help xx
Great for gaming , and entirelly dedicated to peaky blinders - https://discord.gg/rcbWrh
To be clear, I love OB. However, throughout all series, authenticity has been highly questionable. As a Brumny born in the 50's, elements of both the geography and the culture have been questionable, and, of course, the accents have been awful, for anybody who knows the true Birmingham accent (at opposed to the Black Country absent) But the final episode of the current series really pushed it too far with its depiction of Bingley Hall. It is shown as if it were a theatre, from its entrance, shown as a traditional theatre entrance, to the interior which is shown as a full theatre layout, with traditional stage, stalls, circle and balcony. I recall Bingley Hajj well and it was never anything like this, it was an exhibition hall (the first ev…
Greeting to everyone!
I know this is not an immediate matter of concern but I'd just want the community to know my interest in adopting the wiki. The admins of this wiki has been inactive for sometime and I think there needs a whole lot of addition, changes and improvements to the wiki overall. With the fifth series in development and to be released sometime in the coming year, I would be glad to commit to the wiki as an Admin in order to keep it free from vandalism as well as keeping the info up-to-date with latest info as much as possible.
Looking forward to hear your opinions on my proposition.
I found these videos on Youtube I think others would be interested in about the real Peaky Blinders, presented with authentic Birmingham accent (ha ha). Peaky Blinders is a very good drama though it is entirely fictional yet borrows some realities from different time periods. Although not real it is definitely made believable (despite some possible magical elements). Here are the two videos (totally not made or owned by me, all copyright held by the creators):
There is a general structure we follow for editing pages here on the Wiki. I have sorted this guide into parts for easier reading. If you have any questions, message me! Wstnwl (talk) 03:57, June 1, 2016 (UTC)Ways

- 2 Creating And Deleting Pages
- 3 Categories
- 4 Infoboxes

- 12 To-Do List
- 13 Pictures
Images help the Wiki have a nice overall appearance, and make for easier reading of large paragraphs. Most images have a pattern in their naming. For example, and image of Thomas and Grace will be named ThomasGrace1, and then further images of them together will be named ThomasGrace2, ThomasGrace3, etc. To search if an image name already exists, type …

This blog post is about the latest interviews related to Peaky Blinders. Feel free to edit or add some in the comments.
Cillian Murphy recently did an interview discussing Peaky Blinders Series 3. You can watch the interview here .
If any of you guys want to read the show's script, not all the episodes are open to the public, but the pilot is.
You can check it out here: S1E1 Script by Steven Knight
It's really interesting to see what Stephen included in the script but didn't make it into the episode, such as a close-up of an old picture of the Shelby brothers in their home. If you re-watch the episode while reading the script you can also take note of small dialogue changes the actors made, though there aren't many. Also, the scene order in the official first episode is a bit different than the order in the script, which is interesting as well.
I just realized that the Series 2 Episode 1 Script is also open to the public.
You can check it out here: S2E1 Script by St…
