Notable pages/blogs:

  • Quote of the Week by Captain Ned Edgewalker - Arguably the most popular page or blog on the wiki since The Mystery of The Stolen Design, Quote of the Week is a blog in which users submit a quote from a wikian or famous person for it to be put in a central poll every Sunday. Quote of the Week eventually became the second article and first blog in wiki history to reach 1000 comments.
  • A Shift in Direction by Nults McKagan - The vote which expanded the things wikians could write about, putting the move from the POTC Fanon Wiki to the Gamers Fanon Wiki into motion.

Notable Pages: 

  • Invidere by WaglingtonŒ - Considered by many users to be one of the greatest stories in wiki history.

Notable Events:

  • Pirates Forums ends partnership with the wiki - On April 2nd, 2016, longtime partner and fellow Pirates Online site abruptly ended its relationship with the Gamers Fanon Wiki. Site owner and administrator Davy Darkrage cited the wiki's immaturity and offensive content as the reason for the partnership being broken. This event led to the chat strike system being brought back, chat rule modifications and banning swearing on roleplay blogs.
  • Attempted demotion of G-man. -  On May 4th, 2016, Captain Ned Edgewalker wrote a request to demote Wiki President G-man from his position. The vote was rejected at first due to the return of older users, leading to new Voter Eligibility Rules. Following the passing of this new rule, G-man himself held a second demotion vote, which ended in a tie.

Notable Events:

  • Creation of the REDACTED - Early in 2017, Captain Ned Edgewalker and Nults McKagan created a wiki of their own for various reasons and called it the REDACTED. The creation of the wiki was revealed to GFW users on August 7th, 2017, and was received extremely poorly by wiki users. This reception was (understandably) made worse by the two blogs written by Ned (see: Blog & The Good Blog), which were heavily criticized for both being not serious enough and not explaining enough. A proper explanation was eventually written by Ned months later, and can be seen here. The creation and revelation of REDACTED is partly what sparked the community's move to Discord in September of 2017.
  • Creation of the official Gamers Fanon Wiki Discord - On September 3rd, 2017, Nults McKagan proposed the creation of an official GFW discord to the Seven Seas Court. Some users, most notably WaglingtonŒ, opposed this with the belief that moving from wiki chat to Discord would kill off wiki activity. Nevertheless, the SSC vote ended in a 2-2 tie and the vote moved to a community vote. The community vote passed easily by a margin of 5-1, and on September 12th, 2017, the move was made official when the Discord was opened to all wiki users.
