A lot happens on the Thomas the Tank Engine Wikia and we want to keep you up-to-date. So please take a moment to check this page out every once in a while for news, events, and general information that we feel would be of use to you.


October 2017

Hello, everyone!

We have made some more changes to our staff team. We have promoted some new users, created new positions and have even brought back a few old members of the team.

First of all, Zem2point0 has decided to return to the team as an admin. We are glad to have him back on the team, and I am sure he will do a great job helping to update our wiki.

Second, we have finally began promoting discussion mods. These users will supervise the talk pages and message walls, and make sure that everyone is following the rules for these two. TWR98, Ilovetrains323 and TheHappyTruckShunter have joined the team as discussion mods, and Cinderthomtrooper and CalleyFan has also returned to the team.

And finally, we have created a new position, entitled "Head(s) of Community Relations". These users will manage and have access to the wiki's social media profiles, and will be able to moderate messages, attempt to soothe any potential arguments or negative stigma surrounding the wiki and make sure that the staff of the wiki have a stronger connection with the rest of the fanbase. CalleyFan has been promoted to this position, as has Prosper-no.

And with all that said and done, we are now done looking for new staff members for the time being. Congratulates to the new users on their new roles, and welcome back to the returning staff members!

Hello, Wikians!

We have recently begun making major changes to our staff team. As the article comments have been removed, all comment controllers have been placed on rollback until new positions can be found for them. We apologize for the abrupt change and will work to find new positions for them to have.

We have also hired new staff members to the team to help out as the wiki undergoes some major changes. First up, we have El Ieuan, James the Train Lover and Prosper-no joining the team as admins. All three of them are fantastic admins, and I am confident that they will do a great job!

Second, we have promoted Gamball and FlyingPringle to Image Control. Jacob is also going to be our new graphics designer and will be in charge of making our social media avatars, wallpapers, etc. Welcome aboard, guys!

That's all for now. Be sure to congratulate our new staff on their promotions, and stick around as we begin making new changes to the wiki in the coming weeks!

Greetings, everyone,

As I'm sure you all have heard by now, our former head admin, SkarloeyRailway, has decided to step down from the wiki after nearly five years of being an admin. We thank him for his contributions to the site and hope all goes well for him in his future endeavors!

In the wake of Seamus' resignation, I have appointed SamTheTrainFan to the role of bureaucrat in order to help me make some much needed changes to the wiki. Congrats on the promotion, Sam! Be sure to congratulate him on his new position!

While we are on the subject of changes, I have decided that I will be giving the wiki an extensive overhaul from the ground up, as I feel that the site could use a lot of improvements. We will begin looking for new staff, change the way the pages themselves are formatted and rework the Rules and the Manual of Style. Some pages may also be locked while the admins are conducting experiments on them, so don't worry if you find that you are unable to edit a specific page.

Lastly, we are now taking suggestions on how we can change the wiki and would love to hear your ideas. If you have a suggestion you would like to send us, please message us over on the wiki's Twitter account or message me on my own profile.

In the coming weeks we will be making more announcements regarding changes to the site and its staff. Until then, we hope that the wiki will be able to move forward successfully, and we will see you all in the next announcement!

Regards,

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening everyone!

I would like to officially announce that as of today, I am resigning my position as head of the Thomas the Tank Engine Wikia.

This comes after months of declining activity on the site, for a number of reasons, the most important of which is my life outside the internet. I am a senior in college with a part time job, a family, and various social obligations that require my attention, and as such, I am not able to devote nearly enough time and energy to this site as it needs.

I am by no means leaving the fandom, and you can still find me on Twitter and SiF, but my presence here will likely be minimal. We have a great team of admins who have done a fantastic job maintaining the site as my activity has declined, and I feel good leaving the site in their capable hands!

I look back at my nearly eight years on this site very fondly, but the time has come to close the door on this chapter of my life!

If you have any questions, please feel free to message me on Twitter, SiF or any other place you may find me!

All the best,

- SkarloeyRailway ...you will find two little engines called Skarloey and Rheneas... 14:33, September 14, 2017 (UTC)
