Wikia Labs is the place to find the newest features and tools that Wikia develops. It is the place to test out the latest feature we are developing on your wiki and to provide your feedback on the tool.
All Labs projects are only in testing mode and still need further development before they are ready for sitewide launch. Your feedback on Labs projects helps create better tools - so dive right in!
Wikia Labs is located on every wiki at Special:WikiaLabs. You can also add it to your toolbar. Labs projects can only be turned on or off by wiki admins, but anyone can leave feedback. We recommend that admins first discuss the feature among themselves and with their community before turning on a new Labs feature. This keeps the community informed and will direct them to the best place to leave feedback.
