Good morning! Wikia is launching wiki blog articles today. Wiki blogs are a new type of article that have a single author and can be voted and commented on. Some examples of how we expect Wikia communities to use these are fan fiction, personal opinion articles, community announcements, Top 10 Lists, Q&A, etc. Naturally, how all this is used comes under your own wiki policies, so it's up to the community what people are allowed to write about. In addition, the update introduces a new banner on user-related pages that includes an avatar and user links.
You can learn more about how to use blogs on your Wiki at Help:Blog article.
You are one of the first wikis to see this feature... as you try it out, we want your feedback! We'd love to know how we can improve it for you :)
