Hello all. Almost a year ago, the Star Wars Fanon community voted to enable the Discussions feature. Now, Wikia/FANDOM has started migrating content from the Forum to Discussions. You can read about it here. Currently, wikis can volunteer to have their Forum content migrated to Discussions, but this will eventually happen everywhere, it's just a matter of time. I, personally, think Star Wars Fanon should volunteer now though.
There are some downsides that Wikia/FANDOM has been open about: "a replacement for Forum’s "highlight" function and a more versatile editor for Discussions" are currently in-progress projects that will make Discussions more useful but haven't been released yet. However, if we migrate now, we get to do it as a personalized experience where Staff is paying close attention to the process and ensuring its success. Given that neither Forums nor Discussions are used that much, and most users agreed that they either preferred Discussions or didn't care, I think it makes the most sense for Star Wars Fanon to take this opportunity to be ahead of the curve in regards to the
First Order Wikia overlords new FANDOM changes. I'd love to hear what y'all think about this.
