  • Hey there, I recently noticed the Gamepedia migration notice on the main page. I just wanted you to be aware that the Fandom site does get more views than the Gamepedia equivalent (this can be seen via Special:Analytics on both sites). That said, if you're sure that you want to completely migrate this wiki to Gamepedia, I can inform Staff and they can put a proper wiki-wide notice on the Fandom site, informing readers that this wiki has moved to Gamepedia, and Staff will proceed to archive the Fandom wiki. Do let me know what you would like to do. Thanks.

    • Well as many of the users on here are used to the Fandom layout, I'm happy with this wiki being as it is. I wasn't really sure whether to put the message up on the main page or not.

    • It seems that it'd be best for the community at large if there is only one Mo' Creatures Wiki where editors can focus their efforts. That should lead to the best resource and the strongest community, because efforts aren't duplicated and split in separate places. 

      If you agree, I recommend deciding which wiki should be the one and only wiki on the topic. I can help archive the other one, meaning I'd leave it open for readers, but lock it from editing, with a big banner on every page that points visitors to the active wiki. 

      The Fandom wiki gets quite a bit more traffic than the Gamepedia one - at least currently. That's generally a strong indicator that it has a better chance at success and should be the active wiki. However, if existing editors prefer the Gamepedia wiki, and if you, the admin, would rather keep working on Gamepedia, that is a strong argument in Gamepedia's favor. And not to forget: The Gamepedia wiki has official status, while Gamepedia is also home of the main Minecraft community. So it'd be possible to archive the Fandom wiki, direct everyone to Gamepedia, and over time, the wiki there should attract more and more of the traffic. 

      If that's what you'd like to do, let me know! We should just avoid having two wikis open, confusing visitors as to which wiki is the "right" one.

    • Well in that case, I'm happy with having the Gamepedia wiki becoming the main wiki while the Fandom one can be archived. While the Fandom wiki gets more traffic, the Gamepedia wiki uses a more advanced version of MediaWiki and some of the code is not usable on the Fandom site due to being an older version. I used to edit a lot on this wiki but I now spend more time on the Gamepedia site.

    • Okay, I'll make sure that this Fandom wiki is archived this week then, with a banner pointing visitors to Gamepedia!
