I'm not watching this page actively - talk to me on wowpedia.org.
I am still unable to claim my account on wowpedia.org - I tried and so far failed: always incorrect password.
- a lot of editors are having this same problem, as much as I try, I cannot log in. why not simply use captcha's for all unregistered users? The more difficult it is to log on, the less editors you will have. The strength of wikipedia and wikia is anyone can edit, and it is easy to edit. Anno1404 (talk) 17:58, November 30, 2010 (UTC)
An editor on the Anti-wikia skin alliance had a very interested comment.
- I was recently approached by Angela Beesey of Wikia with an offer to buy out my ownership of Battlestar Wiki. Of course, this is not the first time we have been offered “free hosting” in return for some fancy tools and gizmos. Gil Pechina, CEO of Wikia, had approached me more than a year ago and wanted us to move to Wikia.
Wikia offered this editor a lot of money. I am interested, did World of Warcraft get bought out to move? And if so, did WoW have to pay to split off?
have other sites been offered cash to move to wikia? If so what names?
The reason I ask, is it possible that these larger wikias have leadership which has been paid handsomely to move to wikia. The surround themselves with editors who will do anything they ask, and so they don't really have the best interest of the community in mind, when editors say, "we want to leave" and the wikia staff and those they have surrounded themselves with say: "we are staying".
- The original owners of WoWWiki were given money to come to Wikia initially, they are long since gone and no one remaining in the admin staff (of Wowpedia) was part of that pay-off. -- ( •
