- The merge is off. Contact Wikia for details.
This was from an e-mail from Dopp:
- Here's what we have for a plan so far
- 1. All Files will be imported to Community Central.
- Note: If there are any filename conflicts, we'll add "_2" (or something similar) to the end of the Logo Creation Wiki file's name on import. The techs will provide us with a list of these files so we can manually change links in the forum posts. On initial checks, it looks like there are about 39 images with conflicting filenames.
- 2. All Forum threads will be imported to the "Admin_Forum:" namespace.
- This means they will display under the namespace skin for Founder & Admin Central. Founder & Admin Central Forums will be broken down into categories, and one of those categories will be called Design Requests. Design Requests will have the same subcategories that the Logo Creation Wiki forum currently has now.
- 3. User Profiles and Talk Pages content will NOT be imported (cuz that would get all messy.)
- So instead, we'll leave the original Logo Creation Wiki up for awhile, and contact active users to let them know they can carry their content over. User:Nobody Cares has already expressed concerns about his profile content being lost, so this seems like a fair plan.
- 4. Once we've given users enough time to copy content over, we'll close and redirect the logo creation wiki URL so that it goes to community central (or perhaps directly to the Design Requests forum, if possible).
- What's not included in this plan yet?
- - Category Pages
- - Article Pages
- - (anything else?)
- It looks like most (but not all) of the categories and articles on Logo Creation Wiki aren't meaningful or valuable to the direction of the project. Currently, our plan is to NOT import them by default, and then to manually add the ones that matter as needed.
Here is my reply:
- Sounds good. All the important categories are applied via templates, as far as I know. Are Template: namespace pages going to be imported? I will add the ones I think are important to the import additions list.
- Here's a preliminary list of important non-Forum pages to add to the import list

- Not so important, but could be put on list if not conflicting or okay otherwise

You might want to ask Lewis Cawte (User:Lcawte) to look at this list.
