    I have heard about the problems people have with Wikia over a year ago, and now people are seriously considering the alternatives. How should the Gundam Wikia respond to this?

    Personally, I have no love for the Wikia format as of now. Something more like MediaWiki would be better.

    • If people are willing to help with the transition to a different site, then its time for an upgrade!

    • Sounds like the main issues are auto-play videos and intrusive ads and redirects. If you install uBlock Origin and some script-blockers you'll be pretty solid.

    • Consider that Wikia has recently closed Crappy Games Wiki for whatever reason, I tell you they don't give a damn (I'm not side with Wikia, no way, just an observation).

      Damn. I like to check that site from time to time. Wikia is really double down on cleaning house to minimize any risk to the profit, right?

      How much chance  do you bet that a situation similar to LiveJournal years ago would happen to Wikia?

    • The Yu-Gi-Oh! Wikia basically jumped ship to create Yugipedia. And honestly, I wouldn't mind if we did the same to go to MediaWiki.

      I don't know if it's a Wikia-specific thing, but just trying to upload two files here is one of the single most stupidly-complicated thing on the internet I've ever experienced.

      As a moderator on the Evangelion Wikia though, that's gonna be a fun one because technically the MediaWiki exists already and is the oldest Eva Wiki of the two..
