    Progressive Design

    October 4, 2017 by FishTank

    Everything changes. Some things remain classic and timeless, while others come into or out of fashion or evolve by necessity in function. When we're building communities, designing to benefit readers can also be a challenge. Our global audience here at FANDOM is shifting to mobile and "second screen" experiences. Whether on a smartphone or a tablet, readers want more than just what's on their televisions and games. Fans want to be in the experience, to get context and background, walkthroughs and guides, theories and perspectives — and for some, even spoilers. We can't ignore that most communities have a significant mobile reader base — sometimes as much as 60% of total page views.

    What can you do to get the best experience for the long ter…

    "Hear ye, hear ye..." is a call that historically announced meetings in America's Town Halls. These days, such a herald is often an electronic one.

    At 2pm (US Eastern, 6pm UTC) on Saturday, March 25th, Fandom cordially invites all users to attend a very special "town hall" gathering of our own. "CSS: a Fandom Town Hall" is an event meant to educate, to inspire, and for us to listen and hear from you.

    Three presentations are scheduled for this two-hour CSS festival, each followed by a session for questions and answers.

    These presentations are geared towards editors who are novice to moderate at styling communities, but will have some insights for more advanced users, too. The prese…

    Cinematic Themes contest

    February 17, 2016 by FishTank

    In an effort to build a gallery of Themes to inspire Portable elements, Portability Hub is launching a contest: build Themes based on your favorite or most iconic films! We have a few films already in mind that we're working on (and will post some examples for), but we want to see what you're cooking up. Winners get special recognition badges and will have their creations featured in our Themes gallery.

    We intend to have at least two categories of awards for this particular contest: mockups (submitted images of your great designs drawn as infoboxes) and fully realized designs (functional CSS and any image files required for texture, etc.). Who knows, the winning mockups may even get design help to bring their creations to life! ☺ You'll als…

    Templates are more than just Infoboxes. As we've seen, there are plenty types of Templates. However, some Templates are simply more portable than others. That's important when you are designing for future-proof communities (that aren't just using Desktop and Mobile). As part of being future-proof, our entire communities should be able to be seen on any platform; that's the essence of Portability. Most editors think of how things look on a desktop browser, but they need to think about how things will also present in other devices (especially those with smaller screens). The real benefits will come when smart devices and special interfaces, like virtual reality become more commonplace over the next couple of years.
