Hi all,

You have all likely noticed the new changes to the wiki's navigation feature. This style of menu is known as the "Expanded Wiki Navigation". The reason that we have adopted it is because Wikia is requiring all wikis to adopt it by October 3rd, 2012. The reason for this is because it will improve site performance. Before, when there were two different navigation styles, JavaScript for both styles had to be loaded regardless of which one was enabled. By removing one style, loading time will be reduced and site performance will improve. If you would like to see the full article, click here.

New Navigation Menu Example



This is what the new menu will look like. As you can see, I adjusted some of the menu headings in order to allow them all to fit. Also, you can see how the talk page button is slightly modified. Personally, I believe that the changes will be beneficial to the wiki. It will definitely take some getting used to though. That is why I decided to activate the Expanded Wiki Navigation early. This will give me some time to get feedback. I understand that not all of you will like this new layout, however, remember that it is not up to me. So, rather than complain, tell me what I can change! I'd love to hear your opinion. Post all your questions and concerns on my talk page. I will get back to you as soon as possible. And remember, the content of the navigation menu can always be changed so feel free to recommend other head and sub topics.

Thanks for your understanding and cooperation. It is greatly appreciated.
