Uniting this wiki with Fandom's Colony Survival 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 Colony Survival 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 becoming one community working together are clear: By working together, all fans of Colony Survival 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.

As this is the Official wiki it makes sense for this to be the primary wiki after the merger. Not much would change here except you would get some new help from Fandom editors on the wiki! It's a win, win!

Looking forward to hearing what you think! Heytots (talk) 21:13, 16 April 2020 (UTC)

both wikis don't have that many active users and quite a few outdated pages that need updating. Makes sense for me to concentrate efforts, really would benefit the game itself, all wiki authors and also all readers. Don't see any downside. --Adrenalynnn3 (talk) 17:27, 17 April 2020 (UTC)
