What's on your mind?
Hi everyone. It has just been announced that Minions: The Rise of Gru has been delayed due to current world events affecting production. No new release date has been set. This is of course very disappointing for fans, but at least production crew are keeping themselves safe. :)
Hi all! I have an awesome update regarding the Unified Community Platform (UCP). As a reminder, the UCP is a new unified platform giving users the up-to-date MediaWiki experience including the latest features! More can be found here as a reminder.
In terms of new updates, Fandom staff posted three staff blogs:
- Unified Community Platform: The Vision, Purpose, and Process - This update provides a clearer idea as to the end goals of the platform. This includes mobile editing, latest features, customization options - and more! Mobile editing will be an especially popular addition, given the rising number of mobile users across Fandom.
- Creating new wikis on the Unified Community Platform - Fandom is now allowing users to create new communities on the UCP! Users will be able to get a first look at the new platform. The wiki creation process will also aim to prevent duplicate wikis being created, allowing for users to contribute to active communities and be part of a Fandom project viewed by massive amounts of passionate fans!
- Profile and Message Wall on the Unified Community Platform - Profiles are getting an update on the UCP, with a cleaner design and also more freedom for users to express themselves. More fields have been added and you can now add a banner image like you can on Twitter and other social media sites. Message Wall is also receiving a lift, getting a cleaner design more in line with Discussions to keep things consistent.
I'm here to let you know that staff have exciting plans for the future of video on Fandom, including the future of what was Featured Video (FV) and what is replacing it.
A replacement for FV, titled The Loop, is set to be a mini-show that will be different for each vertical, highlighting the latest news from topics relating to that vertical. The best bit? These videos will use wiki articles and will encourage users to visit the wikis featured in the videos to find out more.
As a new episode of The Loop will be released weekly, you will see a wide variety of wikis of featured so there is every chance yours will be featured too!
Please see the latest staff blog for more details and feel free to ask me any questions!
Secondly, staff posted a blog about Fandom in 2019 and the amazing things achieved! Here's to a great 2020. :)
Hi guys! Fandom staff posted two important and exciting blogs recently which I wanted to make you aware of!
- Global taxonomy
The title sounds really fancy and complicated, but this boils down to Fandom recommending content you want to see. Fandom has received feedback from users who are receiving recommendations to visit certain wikis they are not interested in.
With this data driven approach, users on a wiki will receive recommendations for new communities to visit based on what typical readers of that subject are interested in. That way you can attract like-minded users to your community and you get to visit other wikis you are interested in!
Please do read the blog for more information. If you have any questions on this, please feel free to let me know!
- Templates and scripting
The blog is packed with details so please do give it a read! Also feel free to ask me any questions.
The latest update that just recently came out on the occasion of the 5 year anniversary seems to have rather heavy impact on the users' progression (e.g. several types of items or costumes being discontinued).
Could we have a page/article that covers the changes in detail so that people can best utilise the items they will loose before updating ?
I have the impression Gameloft rarely documents this exhaustively and that this is the best place to suggest this type of post.
Bello all, I've planning this for a long time now but since DM3 just came out on blu ray, I think now is the best time to make my announcement. In the next year I plan to resign from the wiki as adminstrator, as I feel like I've helped make DM Wiki the best wiki possible thanks to the support of my many friends and fellow contributors over the years here. I joined this wiki the day DM2 opened in theaters in the US, and this wiki was a vandalized messed. Now we're a top animation wiki and have grown substantally in size. I couldn't be more proud. Before I take my 21-fart gun salute, I would like to welcome the wiki into 2018 and wish it best of luck for the future. I don't know when exactly I'll offically resign, could be anywhere from January to August. But all I know is I'm incredibly proud of the success of DM Wiki, the fandom, and the films themselves. Thank you all, and I plan to discuss with some certain users about passing on my rights in the near future.
Guys In this thread we wish Illumination Studio good again.
It was a bad news:
The Rotten Tomatoes scores of DM(2010) was 81%,DM2 (2013) was 74%.
But since DM2 Ends,The Despicable Me Series's movies after DM2's Rotten Tomatoes scores was less than 65%.
Any movies's Rotten Tomatoes scores over 60% will recommended,
But Minions (2015)'s Rotten Tomatoes scores was 56%,DM3 (2017)'s was 61%.
It became really low now,so lets wish Minions 2 (2020)'s RT Scores are over 65%,or 61%.
While searching through some Japanese website, I founded out they made an official manga based off the Minions, judging by the pictures in the comic it shows the minions in Tokyo. It's called "みらくるトリオ！ ミニオンズ".
I never really expected a western CGI animated film to get a manga adaption but I guess since the Minions are getting popular these days, it shouldn't be a surprise with all this merchandising.
I'd be happy if someone on here who knows Japanese could make a fan translation of this, or if a company like Viz Media or TokyoPop would liscense this and bring it here, considering how popular Minions are starting to become.
My name is Chad (AKA AwesomeOrange89), and I am the Senior Administrator of the Despicable Me Wiki. We would like to start merging this wiki with despicableme.wikia.com, but would first like to get your input. Here are some benefits about the merge:
We would share the same URL, allowing more publicity for the topic. There is already an active support system on the Despicable Me Wiki. We could strengthen our partnership. And so much more!!! Now let us know; what do you think? Should we merge the two wikis? Voting will end on May 15, 2016.
Thanks for being apart of the ride."
Please don't hesitate to comment and share your idea!
Bello to everyone!
Many users have suggested me to take bureaucrat rights on this Wiki, alas, most admins and bureaucrats have left this Wiki (for personal reasons), and so far it seems that I'm the only active admin in here... I've been an admin since July and I do my best to keep this Wiki updated by adding new contents and taking care of bad faith edits, IMO having a new bureaucrat would make more efficient this Wiki if/when rights changes need to be made.
Thrus, I made this thread to see if the community is interesed in supporting me to gain bureaucrat rights. Please comment below if you're interesed. Thank you cc:
If you are making Despicable Me 3 fanon, forget about it. There will be a Despicable Me 3 in 2017.
Bello fellow Minions! Now that Minions has been released in US cinemas and other markets across the globe, any information given in Minions can be posted, but please make sure it was in the movie and not made up. Please don't add in any opininated comments about Minions in articles, but you are free to discuss Minions all you want with fellow fans in our forums or blogs.
I hope everyone is planning on seeing/already seen Minions during this exiciting time for the wiki and Despicable Me fans everywhere!
Thank you, from the staff at Despicable Me Wiki
The Minions Movie has originally premiered at June 11st, 2015. The official date is July 10th, 2015 on U.S. and on the INA (original premiere country). It still count as 2014. and, Universal Studios 2014. Can an admin remove the "future" template, and I will make the cast full and not "TBA". If can, please do it. But in this 0.1 version of Minions, There is NO dub at all and NO subtitle on the 0.1 version, if you see this Minions Movie 0.1 version (No dub, english). That means it is still the original version and Norbert has been confirmed as an official minion. Thank you and see you in the possible second part!
Pharrell Williams won the best urban contemporary album at the Grammy Awards tonight! He won with G.I.R.L, and debuted his new version of "Happy" tonight. Let's go Williams!
BTW: He did look like Mickey Mouse (let me know if you find that pic)
Hey fellow Minions, It's AwesomeOrange89, AKA Chad. I want to start a little fun around here And since it's Halloween time, it's Halloween related! From now until October 31st, we will celebrate Halloween. Get out around your community and find any Halloween related stuff, and take a pic! We will have a Halloween Party (more info ASAP). And we will have polls, and other community reactions. I have started, and took a pic of a Minion at my local Pumpkin Patch. Check it out and participate in our Halloween week! Have any ideas? Email us at email@example.com!
PS: Post below on what you're being for Halloween! It would be awesome if one of our Minions went as a Despicable Me character. I almost went as Gru, but decided on Ted (hence my avatar)! -AwesomeOrange89, Senior Administrator
WARNING: May get a bit rude and foul-mouthed
Hi, if you haven't noticed, I haven't been here for quite awhile now. Well, pretty much here's why (And why it was a good thing)
It all started pretty much when I became admin here. I honestly felt like the leadership sucked here. I really did. All sorts of vandals were running rampant on this site, and I felt like nobody but me was doing anything about it (Which I've came to terms with the fact that's not a true statement). I soon became addicted to making this place "good" or in reality: "make this place mine and make it good by my way". I'd grew angry toward some users, I really had a grudge against Jacob, mainly because I thought he was a troll that was socking and harassing/stalking Don. I realize now that Jacob wasn't anything I blamed him for. I was also annoyed with Chad. While I felt like he was cool and all, deep down there was something making me deeply annoyed with him. Greed and Jealousy. I heard he was student council back at his home, and deep down, I never really have liked student council. He seemed to me (through my bitter jealous mind), he was a rich kid who got whatever he wanted. Yeah, I was a snob to accuse him of that. My dads new job is paying him $22 an hour, so I can't honestly say I financially suck, but we're in lots of debt. You think I was bad yet? Not a chance. My grandfather has had diabetes since he was 18, and is now 76. He had to have his lower-right leg removed, and it really burned me to see a guy like him lose a leg. Not only that, I was moving from my house. Living with my mom's parents is very....errr, I'll say challenging. They constantly bicker with each other, and I personally feel it's strained my relationship with family, friends, and you guys too. My dad started working July, and I didn't get to see him until weekend's, which really burned me. But I'm just making accuses, right? Ehhh, maybe, but this stuff intensified my mood. I'd come to the point where the only thing I'd do is sit on my Kindle for 6, 7, 8, 9 hours straight editing this place. I'd really become insane, and I reasonable blame Wikia (still). Soon, I wouldn't even be able to say anything nice to my mom or sister. I really was a douchebag. Then the day came...
It seemed like a regular day, and my mom had enough. She took my Kindle & iPod away for a month. Well being the pigheaded fool I was, I fought her. I shouted back, and screamed at her, it was bad.
After 6 weeks away from Wikia, I can honestly say I'm a better person. I don't fight my mom anymore (Though my sister is something that hasn't stopped). I don't feel that bitterness toward Chad anymore, I've come to realize all people are on Wikia. Rich people, poor people, American's, British, Malaysians, emos, etc. The list goes on, it's the World Wide Web, meaning ANYONE in the world can be on here. I don't think of Chad as a rich, arrogant, little prick. I feel no bitterness toward him, or Jacob, or even Berry (long story with him). My point is, if you feel obsessed with Wikia, I ask you take a break. Don't become a pigheaded, arrogant loser like I was, you have people that love you. The last thing you want to do is have those people that love you turn there back away from you. Wikia is a place that can be a feeling of accomplishment, a place you can feel welcomed to. But it's addictive, and if your addicted to Wikia, please Stop yourself. Thanks, peace Dragonknight86 (talk) 00:15, October 6, 2014 (UTC)
Today, September 27th 2014, marks a new chapter in the Despicable Me Wikia. The Executive Administration just signed the first ever offical 4 year plan. The plan is the offical focus for each year for the next 4 years. It is a huge step in any wiki, and signifies how much we've excelled the expectations of Don when he first came into ownership of the site. We have had a fantastic year so far in 2014 and we hope to continue that until 2017. We hope you decide to come along with us on this new adventure!
