Well, you did it. You and the rest of Wikia did it. You lost one more wiki. Wikismpsons is moving away from Wikia to ShoutWiki. That's 10 wikis that have already moved away from here. See what this skin made? '''You lost a wiki with more than 6,000 articles!''' {{User:TheHomer/sig}} 16:28, October 8, 2010 (UTC)

Wordmark

Hi Sarah, why did you re-upload the wordmark after I deleted it. It looks like we will be moving from Wikia and this wiki should no longer be called Wikisimpsons, just Simpsons Wiki. Wikisimpsons will be the new wiki, the wiki the commmunity goes to. Oh yeah, and I can't see properly when editing pages as the edit box goes off the page! I decided not to report this as I don't care. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 18:46, October 6, 2010 (UTC)

Hi Solar Dragon, We have been in touch on the blog, and I know that you are not happy with the new look. You are free to start a wiki somewhere and copy the content, but the wiki here will remain open. The name will also remain the same, unless the remaining community decides it should change. I noticed that you deleted the wordmark that was put up, so I have replaced it. Please leave this in place. Thanks for all of your great contributions here, and I hope you remain on Wikia. Best, Sarah@fandom (Help Forum) (blog) 18:55, October 6, 2010 (UTC)
OK. This is fucking stupid now. I don't care if you block me for swearing, I am leaving Wikia. TODAY. You are just evil power/money hungry monsters. You go about saying that all contributors, including staff, are equal and then you do this! You are scum! You like nothing better than to annoy users. All to gain money! You don't care about us. Thank you Sarah for showing me what you are really like. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 19:01, October 6, 2010 (UTC)

I'm curious about something, and I don't have the time or patience to wade through pages of nonsense to find this out elsewhere, so could you please explain it to me. Why is wikia so hell bent on going through with this change when the majority of users disagree and when wikis are actually threatening to leave for other sites? Shouldn't we, as a community, be able to decide what our skin looks like without having wikia force it upon us? And why is wikia leaving the traditional easy to use wikipedia look for something more complex that is better suited for facebook? If you could answer those questions for me without just pointing to some blog post I'd appreciate it. Should you choose to ignore my questions, I'll just assume that wikia doesn't give a damn about users like me who have given wikis like this hundreds of hours of our time while asking little in return. And if wikia doesn't care about the editors who have helped build these sites - making it possible for wikia to make money and hire employees - then I see no reason why we should stay. Thanks, Brian McClure 21:47, October 6, 2010 (UTC)

I was really hoping you would say something - anything - to convince me that it would be worth staying here. But the fact that you just ignored me shows that wikia just doesn't give a damn about the users, which is baffling since Wikia IS DEPENDANT ON USER-CREATED CONTENT! -- Brian McClure 20:29, October 8, 2010 (UTC)
If you read the blogs, that could have saved you asking. Wikia care about one thing. Money. That is why they made the new skin. Money. Wikia don't care about us. We are just pawns in Wikia's plan to get Money. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 20:40, October 8, 2010 (UTC)


Well, say I am the only person who still checks this version when its all moved, does that mean I can technically rename it anything I like? So I could change it to just "wiki". Also, I doubt this, but can that link to somewhere other than the mainpage? ----- It's Magic - Kingcjc 17:18, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

Brian, We have been updating the blog with posts, comments and working to improve the help pages to support wikis as they transition to the new look. We are aware that some of the contributors here are not happy with the new look, and are interested in leaving. You are free to start a new wiki on another host and contribute there instead of Wikia. We want you to stay, and hope you choose to do so, but community members here can decide which service is best for them.

As for the timing on my response, I have found the comments here unconstructive and at times abusive. All of the Wikia staff are working hard to address the community's concerns and feedback, and receiving inappropriate messages distracts us from this work. I understand you are angry, and am happy to answer specific questions, but please keep it civil. --Sarah@fandom (Help Forum) (blog) 21:35, October 8, 2010 (UTC)

"some of the contributors". Pretty much 95/100 contributors don't like it. That is more than some. Great maths there Sarah. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 21:40, October 8, 2010 (UTC)
Well, thats a bit of a generalization. I would not consider some of the feedback "unconstructive" ----- It's Magic - Kingcjc 21:45, October 8, 2010 (UTC)
Well, maybe my comments could be unconstructive. I mean, all I did was verbally abuse her, and I still stand by what I said. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 21:48, October 8, 2010 (UTC)
Yes, but yours weren't the only comments here, were as the original comments states that "I have found the comments here unconstructive", which is basicly saying I (and many others who have just stated what they find hard to use or strange to implement) may as well not commented at all... ----- It's Magic - Kingcjc 21:52, October 8, 2010 (UTC)
