Re: Move from Wikia
Hi there! Thanks for your support. Which wiki are you wanting to move, and what's your username at Wikia? I'm very glad we moved, especially with the horrible pop-out unfolding adverts taking up half the page, and the annoying skin modifications that make the site almost impossible to use properly. Even though we get a lot less traffic than them, I'm still very glad to be separate.
In partnership with halopedia (which forked from Wikia), we are launching the Independent Gaming Wiki Network, which will become a network of gaming wikis, but where each is owned by themselves, can use their own domains, can decide what skins/extensions to use, and is free to leave at any time. If you run a wiki, we can help you move, although there may be either a hosting cost or a requirement for some adverts (nice ones, like on this site) to pay for the hosting. If you're comfortable hosting it yourself, then I can give you advice, but it can be quite technical. Let me know what you think. Gboyers 22:42, 12 June 2011 (BST)
- Firstly, you would need to get support of the community for the wiki to be moved. If it was just a couple of users, then the "fork" would not be successful; and if the community wasn't behind it, I couldn't support it. If you make it sound like you want to copy the site or make your own or become an admin or anything, people will reject your proposal. If you simply suggest that it be moved, and give them lots of real reasons why, and show examples of other wikis that have done it, then I'm sure they'll understand and possibly agree to move. If you'd like some help with those proposals, I give you the various options that exist. If the staff are behind it, then we can all discuss the various options and work out a plan. Bear in mind that Wikia will NOT close the other site, they will keep the domain/URL, they will remove any links to the new site, they will ban any user that adds links to the new site, and they will compete against the moved site. As I founded GTW before it moved to wikia, we have a little more influence but still they are not playing fair. It won't be easy, but I think it's worth it. Gboyers 12:48, 13 June 2011 (BST)
That was just me been immature but I removed that once I realised how pathetic it actually seemed. Anyway, I apologize about the way I spoke to you earlier but that was frustration more than anything, there have been a lot of users doing what you did and Wikia don't allow it so it gets kind of annoying having to constantly remove it all. 19:35, 10 July 2011 (BST)
