Hi all! As your Wiki Manager, I want to make you aware of an upcoming change on Fandom that will affect all its communities, this one included, and I wanted to make sure things will go down as smoothly as possibly here. I shared this with the admins before, but it's important that everyone is aware and has the opportunity to give feedback and ask questions.
As you may be aware, Special:Forum is being retired and all its content is migrated to Discussions before the rest of the wiki will be migrated to the Unified Community Platform.
While this will undoubtedly be a change that will require some getting used to, Discussions has recently received a wave of interface improvements to make the feature more comfortable for Forums users, which was based on the feedback received from forum communities (although these enhancements are not on the Fandom app for Android and iOS). In the end, it's mainly the platform that will change, as people can continue to discuss the franchise on Discussions as frequently as they did here on the forums.
When this will happen, Discussions will be enabled on the wiki, and the transfer process will render the Forum into a read-only state as the content is migrated automatically. Discussions will be open during and after the migration, so you can continue to communicate while the transfer is ongoing.
One of the biggest things you'll notice is that Discussions doesn't support wikitext. In order to preserve the Forum content as it currently is, even where those posts use wikitext, a special converter will be run so that your old Forums posts will look basically the same with the same formatting and templates after they have been migrated, with a few very rare exceptions. However, do note that editing old Forums posts and comments with wikitext on Discussions will break the formatting.
I took a look around on your forum posts, and I noticed that they aren't that heavy on wikitext, template or gallery use, or other complex formatting. If I missed posts that would have any of the aforementioned and of which you have questions how that content will be preserved, please alert me to them, so I can pass that along to make sure it'll be given special attention.
I know this may be a change that you didn't ask for, but it is a Fandom site-wide change, and we are here to try to make this transition as easy and smoothly as possible. As such, you can check this archived thread for some frequently asked questions, but otherwise don't hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or comments you may have about this.
