Community Crunch 312: Desmodus Reveal, Official ARK Wiki, and More!

Greetings Survivors!

Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch! You only have a few more days to gather those Bunny Eggs and hop into an Eggcellent Adventure! No eggscuses! This week, the Fjordur hype train takes a stop to look at a monstrous creature that’s very familiar to the community – Desmodus!

Announced as the third creature to land on Fjordur, Desmodus was the second winner of the Community Creature Vote! The original creature submission garnered a lot of attention and the rest is ARK community history! Desmodus won (39,781 votes) vs. Carcharodontosaurus (24,419 votes) in the 9th and final round!

As you might imagine, Desmodus prefers to hang out in dark places, waiting for its unsuspecting prey! If you’re lucky enough to tame one, you can send Desmodus to snatch up small prey or saddle up and vanish into the darkness.

Check out this post for more information on the new creatures that will arrive with Fjordur in June 2022!!

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,, for the Official ARK Wiki!

The ARK wiki is undergoing an evolution!

From this point forward, you can find the Official ARK Wiki at!

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 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 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 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! The community team looks forward to hearing your thoughts on the ARK wiki transition!
