Wiki Specialists, formerly known as Content Team Members, or CTMs, are part of the Community Development Team. They are contractors who assist in sprucing up and seeding content on wikis, often around upcoming launches, large updates, etc. They are responsible for ensuring that the latest and best content is up on our communities as soon as information is available. They are the main task force that will be creating pages, adding content to pages, and ensuring the best content available is up on wikis across both Fandom and Gamepedia.
Think of them as temporary helpers to get everything ship shape before a big influx of new editors and readers arrives. They will be working closely with wiki representatives and admins in order to best serve your communities.
All of the Wiki Specialists were recruited directly from wiki communities on Fandom and Gamepedia.

I've been editing Wiki's for who knows how many years, I love it. I mostly live on the other side, PUBG Gamepedia Wiki as the Admin, it's my project of mine since 2016. Besides that, I entered video games at a young age with a Windows 95 desktop with no Internet. Just me, my Tonka series CD's, LEGO Island and the desktop. My cousin introduced me to the Xbox 360, you can say I'm a Xbox fanboy but I did move back to the PC side years later.
Cyanide3 is a longtime German user, who has been editing on Fandom since 2011. Over the years, Cyanide has been part of multiple volunteer teams in the English and German languages, assisting wikis and communities with adding new content or establishing portability for other platforms. Raised on games like Sonic CD or Mega Man V, Cyanide loves challenging games within different genres of video games. The PS4 is running 24/7, while the phone is always connected with a powerbank to provide enough energy for the augmented reality-game Ingress. Now, as a Gaming Content Team Member, Cyanide looks forward to creating new content and building new communities for upcoming games. PS: Bribable with coffee.
Encredechine made first steps in Wiki editing in 2008 on the German "Hexer Wiki" on Fandom, but not excessively. A longer hiatus followed due to her still ongoing obligations as an illustrator and book designer. 2013 she restarted editing on Gamepedia Wikis and became Wiki Manager in 2014.
My kids introduced me to Terraria, and I fell in love with the game. My first edit on Gamepedia's Terraria Wiki was in Dec 2013, where I edited actively from Mar to Jul 2014, and again beginning in Jul 2015 (after 1.3 was released). I became an admin in Apr 2016.
I became a Content Team Member in May 2019 (Gaming Vertical), and in Feb 2021 my title became Wiki Specialist.
I am also on Jenny's team, working on anime wikis.
I love Marvel, D&D, Terraria, and anime. Did you know there is an anime where everybody dies? Everybody! Devilman Crybaby.
I discovered a fascination for wiki's in 2016 and have been steamrolling ever since, expanding my wiki wizardry with every new place I joined. I've worked on tons of different wikis, from Moonlighter on Gamepedia to Anthem on Fandom. Any game that I play I eventually find myself on their wiki... Might need to play less games ;)
I started editing wikis in 2018. I'm now a Wiki Manager for Gamepedia, and a member of the Content Team for Fandom. Some of my favorite gaming memories include heated NBA Jam games on the Sega Genesis and causing trouble in Ultima Online with friends. These days, I'll play just about anything but my favorites are first person shooters (Quake, TF2, Call of Duty), FromSoft games (Dark Souls, Bloodborne, Sekiro), and anything by Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear, etc.). And I'm always looking forward to the next Star Wars, MCU, or James Bond movie.
I've been editing wikis since around 2016 and generally spend way too much time playing games, typically the Witcher series, Fallout, Elder Scrolls, Assassin's Creed, etc. though I love the cyberpunk genre and will play games that fall within that scope when I can. You can currently find me helping with the styling for the Cyberpunk wiki... or playing yet another playthrough in The Witcher 3.
My start in wiki editing was on GuildWiki as Nwash. I eventually moved from editing there to STOWiki, where I was known as Eyes, where I was invited to become an administrator after a few months. I accepted and was over time noticed by the Curse wiki team, partly (perhaps largely) due to my work in redesigning the skin to one based on Vector. That led to me becoming a wiki manager for Curse, and now I build new wikis for a living. I was long known as oOeyes across the Gamepedia network and GpoOeyes on Fandom for a bit, but with the user database merge, I am now SBEyes.
