Update from the Wiki Committee:

We’ve had a few question recently about with our fair use policies and we worked with Legal to resolve them. We’ve been testing a search function extension that will make it much easier to search the wiki. It’s still in test right, but we hope to have it out soon. We’re also writing a new policy out that will make major fandoms a category by themselves. And we’ve added 2 volunteers to work on documentation. Look for all of this to be done early next year.

Systems has moved the wiki to its new home on the Zen webserver. Most users will hopefully notice no interruption, but some users may encounter a note redirecting to them to fanlore's new IP address. This is temporary, we apologize for any inconvenience.
