You may have seen before that Fandom has a narcos.fandom.com wiki. This wiki covers the original Narcos series (the Colombian seasons) and is visually different than most others, as part of testing for a different software. We have recently been exploring ways to convert it into a regular wiki like the others.
One possible way to move forward would be to have one big Narcos Wiki covering both Narcos and Narcos: Mexico. I wanted to ask - is this something you would like to happen to this wiki? Or do you prefer for the other Narcos content to remain separate from this one?
A merge could make sense due to how close both productions are, with characters and events that overlap, and actors that have returned for Narcos: Mexico (like Pacho Herrera). This would likely result in a good impact on the wiki's number of visitors, as readers/editors wouldn't be separated between two wikis.
Please let me know your opinion on this, or if you have any questions about how a merge could work. This is something optional, of course, and the wiki can remain as it is if you prefer that - but I would really suggest thinking about it given the positive things it could bring.
Hey GTSxs - Just wondering if you had a chance to check the above at all, and had any thoughts on it. (If there are no answers to this, the team will set up a separate wiki instead of working on any mergers.)
Sorry for the late reply. Sure, go ahead with the merger. I only started this wiki because I found the old one's new theme uneasy to work with. Would appreciate it if the merged wiki maintains aesthetics similar to this one.
The main goal is to incorporate Narcos into this wiki, and eventually switching its URL to narcos.fandom.com - so the theme and overall style shouldn't change very much (mostly just adding Narcos into it).
I will let the team know that you would like the merge to happen, and will bring you any news I have on it.
I’m contacting you, because we want to get off on the right foot the year and after all the feedback received at Community Connect, we want to know more about the current status of the communities. First step is to analyze the previous year, so we would like to hear from you about 2019. It’s so important for us to know what’s your opinion about the work that we did in 2019. It has been a year of a lot of changes and we would like to continue working in the right direction and find solutions to any problem detected by you in the last year.
We know that you could have questions about the UCP too, please feel free to ask me anything about it and I will share your concerns, comments and questions with the other Community Managers in order to obtain an answer as soon as possible.
Finally, also I would like to invite you to rate the last year in Fandom from 1 to 5, meaning 1 as "definitely not good" and 5 like "this has been a fantastic year!". It would be super helpful for our work.
BTW, if you haven’t joined us on Discord, feel free to do it, we plan to run some new projects there and use it as platform to communicate important things to TV/Movies communities, so you will be welcome to our server!
And like I said, let me know if you have any question. I will be happy to help you.
Hello GTSxs! It's Playsonic2 here, I introduced myself a few months ago (below).
I have just seen the teaser for Season 2 that came out today and figured I would mention again that I'm available here if you need any assistance. If you have any wiki plans you would like to work on ahead of the new season, I'd be happy to collaborate with anything.
I was also thinking I could help out with a new design for the wiki, mainly with a background image tailored around Narcos: Mexico, but also colors and some other details. It would be great to have your input on this, and I also will be sharing my work with you before I modify anything.
I'd appreciate any help in improving the design and the UI of the wiki. If possibe, I'd like your help in revamping the main page. I'm thinking of adding a character portal featuring the really important characters, and another portal for all the seasons. It's best to make the wiki more visually appealing to attract more views/users. Thanks for your interest in the wiki!
I think it's a wonderful idea to revamp the main page, so that we can show all that can be found on the wiki, which can have direct impact on attracting more visitors. I'm excited to help with that and will start coming up with some things for it so you can have a look :)
In the meantime, I worked on the following image for the background of the wiki - if you are ok with this, I can set it as the background soon.
Hey GTS, I finished creating some new sections for the main page and added them there, such as a character portal. I still have it pending to add another section for the seasons and hope to get to that soon.
If there is anything you dislike or would like to modify a bit, we can always go over it! Cheers.
I'd suggest replacing Kiki's wife and the two minor DEA agents with Calderoni, Isabella and Benjamin Arellano since they would be gaining more relevancy next season. After the second season ends, we could add another portal for the drug cartels portrayed in the show.
You don't need my opinion to make any changes. Do as you like. Once again, thanks a lot for your help.
My name is Playsonic2 and I'm a Fandom Wiki Manager assigned to Narcos Mexico Wiki. I'm here in case you ever need any assistance with editing, design, templates... or to liaise with Fandom Staff if you need it. If you have any sort of plans/things you would like the wiki to have ahead of Season 2, I would be happy to help or even just discuss possibilities, such as a new main page or other changes like that.
(I'm also a huge fan of Narcos and Narcos: Mexico. I love their storytelling and just the general format of the shows, can't wait for the second season to drop.)
