Should We Reform The Wiki?

This wiki is a bit old; rather messy; filled with poorly linked pages and old, unused, long outdated pages; and overall is a bit... eh...


Should we make a new wiki to replace this one? One where we can establish a strict policy for organization and structure?


The Board of Affairs shall be reviewing this matter soon.

I'm pretty sure not many people know about this wiki. If we redirect people to here, this will be more lively giving us a reason to Renew it. I think this is fine.

Might as well. Just give people time too save the info from this one.

I'm fine with it, as long as I am allowed to have my page for Natrail still, put a lot of effort into it  :L

We would copy over information to the new wiki, but as we do so we'd clean it all up, try to enforce some organization, ensure all pages are linked somewhere and apart of relevant categories, create a template each type of page (racial/empire pages for example) should follow, etc.


We could do this all here, but it'd be a longer and more tiresome effort and we'd likely miss pages given how many are unlinked.

We should just make the new wiki altogether, and any pages not copied can be copied by the authors themselves. We need more admins to stop the spam and clean it up every few months or two as well.

We can, yes, but there'd be some complications with such, as pointed out, and it COULD be easier to reform.


"We could do this all here, but it'd be a longer and more tiresome effort and we'd likely miss pages given how many are unlinked."


I will note at this point that I'm not necessarily pushing either option, just want to hear everyone's thoughts, especially views from the different sides.

New argument in favor of reforming: I didn't make this wiki (still unhappy with Xoshi for that - I simultaneously love and HATE people who take initiative), I don't have control over who has moderation and administrative powers here creating a potential security risk and putting present group admins/moderators out of luck when it comes to enforcing wiki security and standards.

Well Then.

Seems we have to discuss this then.
