I don't know what user to talk to about this. I hear that you went independent from Wikia. I would like to do the same for amiibowiki, so i have some questions.
- Does it cost money?
- Do you keep all of your pages, templates, images, etc. from Wikia?
- How do you do it period?
PS: Respond on my page so I see it!
- Hi Trainiax, I currently take care of the hosting for Inkipedia.
- Yes. I also host strategywiki (which has ads) and use that to pay for hosting for inkipedia.
- Everything was exported from Wikia and then re-imported to the new wiki.
- Was a fair bit of work :).
- Work with the community to make sure people agree (a website is nothing without a community)
- Get server hosting and run the mediawiki software (or find someone to do it for you)
- Export data from old wiki
- Import data to new wiki
- Re-point people to the new wiki
- Style the new wiki
- Alternatively, you could merge into another site which is already independent. NintendoWiki or StrategyWiki (or both) would be a great fit for all the Amiibo info. -- Prod (talk) 16:42, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
