Forum:Moving

From Pikipedia, the Pikmin wiki

Forums: Index > Watercooler > Moving

Pikipedia and Pikmin Fanon are in the process of moving to an independent site (pikminwiki.com). There is a chance any edits made from now on will not be migrated, but we'll do our best to make sure we get everything, and anyone can make those edits again if they notice something got missed.

Unimportant talk pages and forums will not be moved, and those that want to save anything from them should do so.

User/talk pages and blogs will not be moved. People that want to retain anything from their own pages must make the edit themselves.

Files cannot be transferred through the same automatic system; they will have to be done manually until/unless I/someone else write(s) a bot to do it. Anyone intending to help here should note: you need both the full file (click on the image, don't download the thumbnail) and the complete text of the page. (Of course, if you see the need for any changes, edit it in the move.) You must upload to the same name as it has here. Don't bother moving user images that are unused or only used on the owner's userpage.

I think the intention (mine, at any rate) is to have a competition for a new logo once we're set up; currently, a simple placeholder is in place. I'm mentioning this now to give more notice to both the ideas people and the graphics people, and hopefully increase the number of quality entries.

Of course, no-one can be forced to move, and I expect this wiki will continue to exist. Its fate is up to the community here: should we attempt to redirect all traffic to the new wiki, or leave it alone so those that don't want to move can continue to edit here? Still, I hope to see you all there. GP

...What. 24.99.187.251

Ok, I've not being paying much attention on how the wiki is organized, so I just skimmed through that text. But from what I understand, we're trying to merge a Wiki about Pikmin, with a Wiki about fan creations. If that's the case, that is a brutally terrible idea. Having official information and fan ideas on the same wiki is disastrous. And besides, by "independent", I understand that it's going to use its own Wiki engine. That might not be as good as the engine we have now (Gaming Wikia). Unless I read this all wrong, I think this is a horrible idea. {EspyoT} 14:12, September 14, 2010 (UTC)
No, they'll be on the same domain, but separate wikis. The thing is, the fanon wiki has both canon and fan stuff now, so it'll actually help them separate their stuff oute better. All Wikia wikis (and all of Wikimedia (Wikipedia, Wiktionary...)) run on MediaWiki, and that's what's installed. GP

Will we have to register again? Pikmin1254 13:59, September 15, 2010 (UTC)

Yes. GP

Clarification[edit]

Pikipedia will be moving to pikminwiki.com while pikmin fanon will be moving to fanon.pikminwiki.com. They will be completely separate wikis. Vol (Talk)
