Uniting this wiki with Fandom's Angels with Scaly Wings community[edit source]

For those who have not yet heard: Last year, Gamepedia and Fandom joined forces and are now two platforms on the same network. Later this year, we'll even become one unified platform. The teams at both Gamepedia and Fandom want to encourage our communities to work together now instead of splitting their efforts and competing with each other for readers and new editors.

I'd like to know how all of you here feel about uniting with Fandom's Angels with Scaly Wings community. That would mean we archive one wiki - lock it from editing but keep the pages accessible to readers - and put a banner up that directs visitors towards the other, active wiki. Anyone who used to edit the now-archived wiki would be able to contribute to the active wiki, and any content on one side that's missing on the other can be moved over with edit histories intact. Note: No merger will take place if both communities don't agree to it.

The advantages of uniting on one site are clear: By working together, all fans of Angels with Scaly Wings could build a resource on the game more effectively, keep it up-to-date more easily, and players would no longer be confused as to which site they should turn to for information. Keep in mind that later this year, both the Gamepedia and the Fandom wiki will move onto the same platform and then have a very similar if not the same layout, tool set and staff support.

So: Are you interested in merging with your partner community on Fandom? Would you be willing to edit on Fandom going forward, or would you rather keep things as they are? Please speak up!

Opinion about uniting wikis[edit source]

Since the Gamepedia is deemed the "official" wiki and there were some issues with vandalism on the Fandom wiki last year, I feel the best way forward is to keep updating the official Gamepedia, locking the inofficial fandom wiki and migrate some content from the fandom wiki to the official gamepedia so we get to keep the best content of both.
