The Unified Community Platform (UCP) is a new wiki platform running MediaWiki 1.33. All Fandom wikis (including the Disgaea Wiki) and all Gamepedia wikis, which currently run on separate platforms, will eventually live on the UCP and use the same underlying technology.
"Fandom's legacy platform is running a much older and heavily customized version of MediaWiki. All the custom features Fandom added over the years, such as Message Walls, threaded Forums, Chat, Achievements, the Admin Dashboard, Special:WikiActivity and many more, made it nearly impossible for Fandom to update to a newer version of MediaWiki. That meant losing out on lots of improvements and new features developed by the Wikimedia Foundation that come natively with newer MediaWiki versions.
After Fandom and Gamepedia joined forces in 2019, we finally decided that it was time to untangle Fandom's complex and heavily customized platform, remove or replace outdated features and unite all the wikis in our network on a single platform running an up-to-date version of MediaWiki. This will give Fandom users access to newer and better MediaWiki features and Gamepedia users access to features that were previously only available on Fandom. Our development teams will no longer have to maintain two separate platforms, one of which is heavily outdated, and are instead able to focus on building new features for our users."
The UCP migration will change some elements of this wiki. To learn more about UCP, check out Help:Unified_Community_Platform on Community Central.
