In 2021, Fandom is releasing a new, redesigned skin called FandomDesktop. We have been reaching out in order to help communities prepare for the change, but also so they can offer feedback.
I have more to show you, this time about Navigation for desktop users on the new skin. We have new looks at Search, Profile submenu, and Notifications. There is also insight into why the local navigation decision was made.
Feel free to check them out!
What do you think of these? What do you like/dislike? Would you change anything? Please comment below and the more feedback we receive, the more areas we can give extra attention to. Thanks! --Spongebob456 talk
Mine is Noel Panko’s retelling of events in episode 17.16 “Star-Struck Victims”.
“We made beautiful love in the bathroom for three minutes.”
Fandom posted a preview of the new Fandom desktop experience, called FandomDesktop.
The blog outlines some areas which are seeing significant changes such as:
- Native support for Light and Dark mode
- Flexible content area width
- Collapsible right rail
- Redesigned editor toolbar
- And more!
We really want your feedback, both good and bad, so please feel free to fire away! If we know of your concerns beforehand, we can pass that on so those areas can receive extra attention, to help the transition go as smooth as possible.
What do you think of FandomDesktop? Do you have any concerns/highlights? How do you feel it will impact the community?

Does this mean they decided not to do Hate Crimes and instead do this Untitled spin-off focusing on an organized crime unit?
Any thoughts or ideas on what real life story or person inspired "Cost of Capital"?
I saw an episode of Law and Order (I forget which one) where it features a judge with signs of dementia/Alzemiers, but he refuses to believe he has it, therefore he makes critical mistakes on some cases. The NYPD or maybe the lawyers want him to resign or take retirement, but he still believes there is nothing wrong with him.
Hello. I am highly interested in adopting this Wikia. I've edited here for over a year, but I have a high amount of edits for this Wikia, totaling almost 8,500, approximately. Having watched a number of episodes of Law & Order and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, I believe I have a great understanding of those shows, which would be of a great benefit to the Wikia. I am also willing to expand articles relating to other shows in the franchise like Law & Order: Criminal Intent.
Since the admins have apparently gone AWOL since the end of 2014, I've been active in organizing the Wikia. I've also lately been responsible for the creation of several important articles and categories, such as ones for characters and actors.
From my experience with this…
Contact killers that ended with the victims daughter being picked up from school by an uncle but she doesn't have an uncle. I believe Claire was the ADA who said she doesn't have an uncle and Schiff gives her a shocked look and the episode ends. Can anybody help me out?
Someone please help me with this. I was on TVTropes.org and found this entry listed in the Parental Incest trope. This was from an episode of the original L&O:
- There's an episode about the murder of a teenage girl. The cops keep pursuing the girl's father, as evidence indicates the girl was sexually abused, but he keeps protesting his innocence. It's ultimately revealed that it was the girl's mother who was raping her and ultimately murdered her.
Someone please tell me which episode of the original L&O that this is from! Thank you! Would be much appreciated!
So it's not law and order but its conviction. My godfather is Jordan Bridges!

Who is the actress who was the lady who woked at FOX's Gentleman's club?
Making haste, Rafael Barba grabbed his scarf and wool coat, looking in the mirror to make sure he was at least presentable.
"Raffi!" His wife, Alisia, came into the room. "Please be back before supper. We have to plan your 50th birthday."
"I know," he said. "I can't imagine I'll be there long."
"I know I said this already," she murmured. "You don't have to go. You're forcing yourself to go."
"We all know things. But we don't really." Rafael slipped on his coat and rung the scarf around his neck. "Maybe I want to see him. Maybe we aren't friends, but we are acquaintances. I should see him and I think maybe I want to"
Aghast, Alisia blurted out, "And he was sexually aroused by a 15-year-old girl."
"Alisia, we've been over this. I g…
Hello. I am Lady Aleena, admin of the Tommy Westphall Universe wiki.
Some here may be aware of the Tommy Westphall Hypothesis. Some like it, some do not. So your wiki here can remain clear of Tommy Westphall, I am offering you a place to send people who are fans of it.
I am also here asking for a little help. The Law & Order franchise and expanded universe is big. It comprises sixteen series across two franchises. So, if anyone here would like to lend a hand over there to get the L&O articles in order, I would appreciate it. You can get a list of all the L&O articles Tommy Westphall has at Law & Order Universe.
Drop by my talk page there if you have any questions.
I would really like to have a positive relationship between the Law & Order wiki and …
Trying to find an old L&O episode where a father asks his on to kill his daugher!!. They were from Iran or middle east. They did the task and stood trial. Interesting episode if you can find it !. I NEED TO KNOW THE NAME OF THE EPISODE
Jacob Rollins is the younger brother of Amanda and Kim Rollins.
Jacob is a former high school football player who decided to become a cop like his sister Amanda. He joined the Special Victims Unit at 21 years old, but he is afraid of firing a gun due to his fear of loud noises so Olivia has him wear ear plugs to drown the sound out. He later gets tourted while being undercover and Amanda and the rest of the SVU team search for him. Jacob can be overprotective of his sisters at times mostly overprotective of Amanda. He sometimes wishes he had went to college and played in the NFL instead of being a cop, but he wanted to make sure he was with his sister at all time. Jacob also survived a plane crash, but was badly injured.
- Jacob cares about A…
In about a month there will be 6 new episodes and special characters. They can only be brought at Amazon or if you go to target you could find one
I've noticed you have many categories for victims, rape victim and murder victims can't there be an abuse victim too, because there are a lot of pages with just victim when it's physical, I think there should also be an abuse victim.
- 1 From L&O to
- 1.1 Donal Logue
- 1.2 Hakeem Kae Kazim
- 1.3 Robin Lord Taylor
- 1.4 James Frain
- 1.5 Cameron Monaghan
Some may have already seen this, but have you noticed that some of the guest appearances from Law and Order have appeared on the Prequel show Gotham for instance....
- Harvey Bullock = Declan Murphey/ Gambler's Fallacy
- Richard Gladwell = Chuckwei Bothame/ Snitch
- Oswald Cobblepot = Dylan Fuller/ Tramatic Wound
- Theo Galavan = Dean holiday & Martin Gold/ Vanishing Act & Users
- Jerome Valeska = Eddie Sandow/ Father's Shadow
This idea has been in my head for a while, but this is the first time I got around to sharing it online. I'm hoping that people around the net get to this and share their thoughts and opinions about two of SVU's interesting detectives.
Some of the similarities I see in Detectives Stabler and Amaro are these: Both are family men, work well with Olivia Benson, don't want to be the window into a world of crime for their kids, and have issues that are often unresolved much of the time.
Anyone that sees other similarities between them, feel free to share it.
Hi Law & Order! I'm Andrew, the technical community manager here at Wikia. About a month ago we partnered with Sony to launch TV SideView, which integrates content from your wikia into an Android app. If you haven't given it a shot yet, I recommend it! It's available for most Android devices and it's another way to be proud of your hard work.
Your wikia (among others) has been receiving a good number of visits from the app itself, and that's why I'm here. My job as technical community manager is to make sure our back-end work here in the Wikia offices meshes flawlessly with your front-end content. And from our angle, your community is doing a fantastic job sorting and developing your wikia.
Thank you so much - users like you are what ma…
This week I've been on Amazon and bought the very special boxset that features the First seasons of L&O, Criminal Intent and SVU. Having watched syndicated episodes on the UK's 5USA or main channel 5, I'm thoroughly looking forward to seeing how it all started. Especially L&O - seeing as all of the characters are ones I've never seen before - apart from Cragen of course
Guess I should note that I'm talking about Law & Order: Criminal Intent. That might be helpful. Yay! It looks like Cloo channel is going to run the whole series from the beginning. It will be my first time seeing every episode in order. I hope they stick to it. It has already started earlier today, but is repeating today's episodes starting at 3pm EST with "One." Time to set my DVR!
I'm only noting all of this because Sundance Channel said they were going to run the entire Law & Order series from beginning to end. Except, they didn't. They ended up only going to about 1998, then they started skipping episodes and it just got all out of control.
Dick Wolf is the creator of Law & Order. Michael Imperioli was an actor in several episodes. In the Sopranos, Christopher mentions Dick Wolf a lot after he gets into the movie business. Don't know how many instances and what content or context. Just about the entire cast of the Sopranos also played on earlier episodes of Law & Order, before Sopranos came out in 1997/8 (?). Everybody but Tony from Sopranos did at least one episode of Law & Order before Sopranos came out. I just think that's amazing. I'd really like to learn more about this. Do the creators of each show know each other, or knew each other before Sopranos was created, at least?
I'm not sure what this message on my Profile means:
This brief message was placed here to eliminate CoolBurnMtW's user page from filling up the wanted pageslist. If you are CoolBurnMtW, please feel free to let the public know a little more about you, your interests, and your contributions.
If I have done something wrong, I have no clue what it is. I merely wrote a short Profile message. Honestly, I don't even remember exactly what I wrote. Perhaps someone could help me figure this out? I don't want to cause any trouble. I'm not that kind of person. Just a disabled TV junkie looking for other show fans.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Dang! Sundance has stopped playing L&O episodes in order. What a gip! What am I gonna use to fill my DVR now?? The Collector? Don't think so! (Please, no comments from the peanut gallery. I know The Collector is on a different network.)

I love this series. Mariska Hargitay is just gorgeous. This Blog will be where I talk about various episodes and give my opinions on L&O:SVU.
This is probably my favorite Law & Order series. I'm a huge Vincent D'onfrio fan ever since the first time I saw him in Full Metal Jacket. This Blog will be where I talk about various L&O:CI episodes as I watch them.
This is where i'll talk about my opinions of the regular Law & Order shows. Just have to give me time to get a few Blogs going.
Jacob Benson is the cousin of Olivia Benson and is her new partner.
Jacob is a 19-year old detective for the New York Police Depertment under Olivia's order since her aunt was killed. Jacob loves his job and wants to protect his cousin and even his friend from grade school Casey Novak.
On January 1, 2014, Law & Order began running on the Sundance Channel, We-Women's Entertainment, and WGN America, in addition to its continuing run on TNT. I don't know if all of those channels have access to the entire package of episodes; Sundance's promoes for the series state that it's "from the beginning". Indeed, they started with "Everybody's Favorite Bagman" on 1/1.
Recently announced on tvshowsondvd was the release date of Law & Order's Thirteenth year DVD set. That is the 2002-2003 season that included Fred Dalton Thompson to the cast as District Attorney Arthur Branch. A conservative DA as opposed to the more liberal Nora Lewin and Adam Schiff. I believe this character came at a time he was needed in a post-9/11 time and also so there would be someone who would chalange the views of his more liberal collgues EADA McCoy and the more liberal ADA Southerlyn.
According to tvshowsondvd, the seperate DVD of season 13 will be released on November 5th later this year. According to tvshowsondvd and Amazon.com, there does not seem to be any extras included in this package. But an important thing to note is th…
The Episode Order for Law & Order LA is severly messed up, those who know the series are aware of what i'm talking about, here is what I think the episode order should be:
Original Episode Order
Fixed Episode Order
Death of Winters
Hey, Have you ever wanted to join the NYPD? Well in this RPG you can!
Earn Promotions, recieve medals, and more!
You can join special units, or head a taskforce!
Just come and see!
Solve cases, rise through the ranks!
I need all of you law and order wiki users to add the category females to all of the females and the category males to all the males, because there are probably 1,000 pages that need those categories. (P. S.: If a page already has that category than skip it of course!!!!.) Thanks for your consideration! Bye
Here's the problem, I was adding the category females to all the females and males to all the males. I went to the page Richard Dwyer and put the category females there :(. WOW. Is there someway you can delete that category from that page? If there is than go ahead and delete the category please. Thank you in advance.
In Law & Order, the detectives from the 27th Precinct work in a Detectives Squad, meaning that not everyone in that squad is a homicide detective. In a city as large New York City, there can't be just one unit responsible for handling all the murders that take place in that town. That's why they have detective squads in New York and LA. Yes I am aware of the infamous Robbery Homicide Division in LA, but there are also detective squads located in different precints throughout the city. (Read Micheal Connelly's earier Harry Bosch Novels.) So who ever is running this Wikia, please change that about the 27th precinct and the detectives, who are Homicide detectives part of the 27th's Precinct's Detectives Squad.
And Just a Tidbit for the fans:
Hello SVU Fans,
I am posting an interview for a web show called Media Mayhem with Allison Hope Weiner. Recently, Allison interviewed past SVU executive producer, Neal Baer, who discusses the many shows he has worked on (SVU, ER and A Gifted Man) and he has some interesting tidbits to share about SVU, including its most controversial episode ever.
Check out the full show here:
Thank you for taking a look,
I am so sick and tired of people complaining that SVU has gone downhill since Chris Meloni left. Yes he was actor, yes Stabler was a great character, yes we miss him on the show but it doesn't mean the show sucks, the show is still good, people can't seem to handle change. The original Law and Order had cast changes all the time and i never remember people complaining about it as much as they are about SVU. Get over it!
By the way if the show sucks so much how come NBC renewed it for a 14th season.
Not only has Stabler gone, but apparently so have the writers and production crew. I've given it time - watching this new incarnation of my #1 TV show, and I'm not happy.
The new 'look & feel' has gone to the 'light side', bright lights, bright colors, weak plots and overabundance of tear-jerker episodes.
I don't like it this new show at all. I'm just glad I have a DVR and can capture so many of the old shows. I'm sure I'll be forgetting those old shows as time passes - and I can then watch them again ;-)
Farwell, 'new' SVU -
Why has SVU suddenly started to refer to trials as taking place in "Superior Court". There is no Superior Court in New York. Felony trials take place in Supreme Court which has been the accurate designation since the series began. California's trial court is the Superior Court, not NY's.
oh my god law and order svu almost sucks totally without chris meloni playing elliot. i cant believe that the producer puched it this far with all the new character changes and just plain old changes and stuff but he also could of delt wiht it ya know, but god i almost cant watch the show, now its unbearable. i hope he guest stars and or come back sometime whos with me?
After a high-profile gig on Grey's Anatomy, T.R. Knight left the medical procedural and went off television to return to theater. Now, the veteran actor will be marking his return to TV with a guest gig on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit!
Playing a role quite different from Dr. George O'Malley, T.R. Knight will play a man accused of being a serial rapist in an episode airing this fall.
Meanwhile, the absence of Elliot Stabler will be deeply felt by Olivia and the rest of the squad when SVU returns in the fall. Although we have two new detectives to look forward to, Stabler will be deeply missed after a 12-year run at SVU!
Are you looking forward to seeing T.R. Knight? What about Danny Pino or Kelli Giddish as the new Stabler and Bensen? See…
