Fandom updates - Admin Plus and External Platform Guidelines

Hi all! Hope you're all enjoying your summers - a couple of quick updates from me this July. Diving in!

Admin Plus is a course designed to teach admins the fundamentals of building and maintaining a wiki community on Fandom. It covers three core areas:

  • Technical Foundations
  • Content Development
  • Community Building

Any users can watch the videos to learn how to contribute to their wikis, but please be aware that Fandom awards badges of completion only to admins who:

  • Have served in an admin role for at least 90 days
  • Manage wikis that have 100 pages or more

This was brought in due to feedback from wiki admins who wanted to know more about what being an admin entails. Admins have also been putting their adminship status on their resume or CV. With Admin…

Wiki Rules and Blocking policy updates

Hey guys!

Recently, Fandom staff posted updates to the Fandom Wiki Rules and Blocking Policy. As a reminder, this is a global policy to aid the wellbeing of communities that all wikis have been following since 2021. These new changes go into effect on April 4th.

  • An added section outlining what it means to be a good admin. Some tips include being open to users asking for advice, not acting as if you are the “owner” of the wiki, assuming good faith etc
  • The “Need ideas for rules?” section was moved to its own page and added more example rules to be used if needed.
  • An added section requiring a pathway to adminship. This is a system your community can set up to allow for long-time users who care about the wiki and community to eventually become admins…

Booth with a gun

I'm rewatching the entire series of Bones on Hulu.  During season 2, I noticed that Booth shoots right-handed, but wears his gun on the left.  Does anyone know why this is?  In all the cop/military shows I watch, I've never seen someone wear their gun on the opposite side, unless it was in a shoulder holster.

Bones Cancelled

Bones may be nearing the finish line.

Asked about the show’s Season 12 renewal prospects Friday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Pasadena, Fox co-chairman and CEO Dana Walden said she’s “really not sure” about a pickup, adding, “It’s top of next-week business to start talking with the producers about whether this will be the end of its run or if it will go another season.”

If it is the final season, Walden promises series creator Hart Hanson and Co. “will be given plenty of time to start writing a meaningful ending to the show. They have such a loyal fanbase, and those fans deserve a satisfying ending.”

Regarding the ongoing legal battle between series leads David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel and 20th Century Fox ove…

David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel's Bones Lawsuit: Will It Derail Season 12?

A 12th season of Bones may not be such a sure bet after all.

Series stars David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel, along with executive producer Kathleen Reichs, filed a lawsuit on Monday against 21st Century Fox, Fox Entertainment Group, 20th Century Fox Film Corporation and Fox Broadcasting Company in pursuit of “tens of millions of dollars” they believe they’re owed.

In a nutshell, Boreanaz and Deschanel — along with Reichs, upon whose Temperance Brennan novels the Fox procedural is loosely based — believe their work has made a substantial amount of money for Fox (more than $100 million), yet they haven’t been sufficiently compensated. The actors claim they’re contractually entitled to 3 percent of the series’ profits, while Reichs is owed 5 per…

SLEEPING BONES! Just kidding, but you read the title correctly! It has been announced that Bones and Sleepy Hollow will be crossing over into each other's worlds in the upcoming 2015-2016 season. Ichabod Crane and Seeley Booth on one screen together? Sign us up!

Variety reports that the special event "was initially planned for a fall debut, “logistical issues” necessitated the postponement of the meet-cute until spring." We're curious to see what the logistics of the episode will be and how Booth and Bones will deal with the supernatural elements of Sleepy Hollow.

Sony's TV SideView and Bones wikia

Hi Bones!

I'm Andrew, the technical community manager here at Wikia. About a month ago we partnered with Sony to launch TV SideView,  which integrates content from your wikia into an Android app. If you haven't given it a shot yet, I recommend it!

The Annoyance of Brennan and perhaps others

I enjoy the series but personally despise the character of "Dr." Temperance Brennan for several reasonss. The reasons are as follows:

1. She has on innumerable occasions said that she is the smartest peron in the room/building/counrty/world and she has a problem whenever someone doesn't like when she does that. Her hypocrisy comes in that when Dr. Wells comes in and shows and tells her that he is smarter than her, she has an immense problem with him doing this despite her doing similar things in a majority of the episodes.

2. She pretneds to be open to many people's cultures yet she is constantly criticising people of faith and their faiths as ignorant most notably Booth and Catholicism. And then, even worse, she then criticises Booth when h…

Exclusive Bones Video: Relive Pelant's Reign of Terror Ahead of Monday's Explosive Climax

The serial menace known as Pelant returns to Bones on Monday (8/7c, Fox) to continue his terror campaign against longtime muse Brennan, and we’ve got an exclusive first look at what could be the Big Bad’s swan song.

While the following clip package primarily serves to remind the viewer of the hell and havoc Pelant has wrought over the past two years, things get very spoilery in the final 10 seconds.

Let’s just say Pelant pays Brennan a visit at work to drop off a little present.

Press PLAY below and then hit the comments with an answer to this question: Do you think Pelant’s war on Booth and Brennan is about to come to and end? And, if so, does this have you worried that the worst is yet to come?

Still sour over the role he played in Pelant’s latest crime spree, Sweets requests a leave of absence to “clear his head” in Monday’s all-new Bones (8/7c, Fox) — but his colleagues (Booth in particular) aren’t letting him go without a fight.

“[Sweets] is at a crossroads and he feels like he wants to do something more with his life than what he’s [currently] doing,” explains David Boreanaz in the following promotional video, which features new footage of the shrink’s emotional goodbye.

Season 9 premiere reactions

We're back! Finally! Although, so is Pelant, and much to dismay of myself and many others, there's no clear end in sight for this somewhat unpopular story arc. True to form, the plotline of The Secrets in the Proposal seems to mirror the character relationship of Bones and Booth. This culminates with the revelation that the killer did the deed "for" the woman he loved. (Maybe Booth will do the same?)

Something I found intriguing - in a fore-shadowy kind of way - was the back & forth between Booth and Beck where not only is an invitation to join the CIA extended, but a get out of jail free "card" is left on the table for Booth. This had me thinking "please, oh please use this to get rid of Pelant!" - although that is probably too obvious a g…

Hooray! Bones fans can rejoice because Fox has renewed Bones for a 9th season!! The network made the announcement on Tuesday at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour!

According to TVLine, entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly said in a statement, “After more than 150 episodes, Bones continues to be one of television’s most dynamic and consistent dramas. We at Fox, along with millions of zealous fans, look forward to seeing where the incredible creative team takes the series next season.”

Bones Vs. Society

For a college class I have taken the opportunity to write a paper on, of course, Bones. The paper is suppose to talk about the effect social media has on us as a society. I have having a hard time coming up with a thesis to prove, I would love to keep the topic of Bones because I know so much about it!

The thesis has to answer one of these questions:

What does the show say about our society or culture? or about human nature? or about our view of life or the world? And why is it important?

If you could help I would greatly appreciate it. Also, if you have any examples that would support what it shows or says, that would help as well

So ive watched the entire series of Angel, and the 3 seasons of Buffy he was on, and watched the first season of Bones, first off, I love Buffy and Angel, seconed, i hate bones, third i hate the tv show Bones.

Why i hate the character bones is because, she thinks she is so great, heck, when you look at a picture of her she is such a b-i-t-c-h. When ever i see her picture i wanna beat her up.

Reason i hate the show, 1. it makes Angel's actor look like a dick, and it's turned him into on to, watch an interview when a repoter asks about the show angel, he gets pissed off.

2. the actors AND the characters are conceited.

Three off the top of my head are Max (Brennan's father), Russ (Brennan's father), and Jared (Booth's brother). Max is now a grandfather, and Russ and Jacob are uncles.

Bones x The Finder Crossover

We have an official crossover between Bones and its spin-off The Finder! Dr. Sweets will be one of the first from the Bones cast to make an appearance in The Finder.

Probably without Walter's permission, the FBI will send Sweets to examine his psychiatric condition: “Who is more qualified to examine [Geoff Stults'] brain damaged paranoid finder than Sweets?” exec producer Stephen Nathan jokes to TVLine. “I think the FBI made a very good choice sending him.”

Also expect to see Booth in one of the episodes of the Finder. Since Bones won't be coming back until November on account of actress Emily Deschanel's pregnancy, The Finder is a good way to get our fall dose of our favorite characters.

Will you be tuning in for The Finder?
