Official ARK Wiki - Feedback


Recommended Posts

As an ARK survivor, it's likely you've been in a bind and inevitably found yourself looking for information on one of ARK’s various game systems. Since 2016, the ARK wiki has served as an invaluable resource for millions of players making their first steps onto The Island. Cataloging and detailing ARK’s content, from the base experience through the expansions, is no easy task. Internally, we’ve even used it as a resource.

The ARK wiki has had a happy home on Fandom and we’re grateful to have been partners as they supported the growth of the ARK wiki. We’re pleased to announce that we have a new home and partner, wiki.gg, for the Official ARK Wiki!  

The ARK wiki is undergoing an evolution!

From this point forward, you can find the Official ARK Wiki at ark.wiki.gg!

Our intent in moving the ARK wiki is to provide a more stable and streamlined experience for the ARK community to build its future wiki roots on. The team at Wiki.gg are not new to starting community wikis and have a long history of successful community-led projects in their portfolio. Our shared vision for the ARK wiki is one that prioritizes gamers and the browsing experience over profits.

The Fandom ARK Wiki and the history of the contributors aren't going to disappear! The wiki team at Fandom has expressed interest in keeping the ARK wiki operational and functional as a second unofficial ARK wiki.

  • The Browsing Experience: Nobody likes slow-loading web pages! The ark.wiki.gg layout allows for a more streamlined and less obtrusive browsing experience.
  • Creative Control: In the past, there has been no creative control over things that affect the overall presentation and user experience (ads, banners, UI, etc.).
  • Marketing (Ads): Ads displayed on the ARK wiki are from internal partners from the Wiki.gg network.

  • The Wiki History: All the current content of the ARK wiki has been migrated to its new home.
  • Community Control: The ARK wiki community will still dictate how the content is managed, created, and edited.
  • The Rules: All content moderation rules remain the same and prior ARK wiki admins have transitioned to the new official wiki.

  • Become an Editor: Help improve the wiki! Wiki’s are most successful when many community members contribute content and validate information.
  • Wiki’s are Worldwide: ARK players come from all around the world! We encourage non-English speakers to help make the ARK Wiki an even more valuable resource by contributing to the specific language wikis!
  • Share Your Feedback:  As always, we want to hear your thoughts on the Wiki transition. Anything you want to see the wiki add in the future?
  • Update Your Links: Remember to help those who forget the new Official ARK Wiki home.

With this transition, The ARK wiki has evolved into a long-term platform for ARK information to thrive! Please leave any feedback you have for the wiki team in the thread below!

I'm loving the new platform so far. I mostly use the wiki on a PC monitor, so going back to a layout that makes use of all the available space was a very welcome surprise. I was also happy to see that all pages and maps for mod pages made it over intact. Currently I'm only experiencing lag and freezing when opening a link from one wiki page to another, sometimes the page has to be refreshed to finish loading, and images are still a bit slow. Other than that, it feels nearly perfect. Thank you!

Thanks! Platform team's aware of the issues and is working on a fix, but I'm not sure when that's going to happen. There's also some cache issues after an update we've had on the 27th, but these should be sorted out completely soon.

Wiki's management team is separate from the game's or forums' - I'm guessing the "comment deleted" things happened on the forums. Any feedback about the wiki, ads, etc. should go here or as a private message to me, or over Discord (alex#7749), onto my wiki talk page, or onto the Wiki Discord server. If anything of yours gets deleted/reverted on the wiki, you can ask me about it and I'll look into it ASAP.

About the Spanish wiki: we're more than happy to welcome new translators, and we'll assist as much as we can. All help is welcome.
