Greetings. I wanted to introduce myself. I'm a member of the Wiki Team. I am here to assist you however I can. If you have any questions regarding the upcoming move to the Curse servers, or other changes, please post them here, and I will do my very best to answer them. --Wynthyst 22:19, 2 February 2012 (PST)

Uniting this wiki with Fandom's Magicka 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 Magicka 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 uniting on one site are clear: By working together, all fans of Magicka 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.This Gamepedia wiki is Official so it makes it the natural home for the main wiki between the two. Keep in mind that later this year, both the Gamepedia and the Fandom wiki will move onto the same platform and then have a very similar if not the same layout, tool set and staff support.

So: Are you interested in merging with your partner community on Fandom?

Please speak up!
