I have a question. What are the PROs of being hosted by Wikia? This is not a forum about how Wikia sucks, it's, quite the contrary, about how Wikia doesn't suck. Also, it's a forum about shit, so lets see some pictures of faeces rolling FreddAin't Dedd 22px-Flag_of_Egypt.png 18px-Foxicon.png 15:30 • Saturday, 13-03-2010

If this hotdog is not kosher, many infedels will die. Aw, who am I kidding, the infidels are dying anyway. The only question is are there virgins involved...

I was bored, and still am. You can't blame me.. The pictures of Uncyclopedians on shitters are soon to follow, anyhoo. FreddAin't Dedd 22px-Flag_of_Egypt.png 18px-Foxicon.png 15:48 • Saturday, 13-03-2010

Pros

ThinkerToilet
  1. It's free.
  1. It's free.
  2. There aren't very many ads (I dunno, I keep them blocked).
  3. The site loads reasonably fast. --Pleb SYNDROME CUN medicate (butt poop!!!!) 18:18, March 13, 2010 (UTC)
  1. It's free. Compared to Wikipedia we are slow though. MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 18:21, Mar 13
  1. It has a pleasant odor. -OptyC Sucks! Icons-flag-us CUN18:34, 13 Mar
  1. Running the things and the stuff is somebody else's problem. If the average Uncyclopedia ran those things and that stuff, we'd be off the internet in less than a day. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 18:42, March 13, 2010 (UTC)
What Modus said, plus, it has a pleasant odor. Oh, Optimuschris said that already. Ok, this is my answer, I won't change it again. "Zulch is the auto works!" Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 15:41, March 18, 2010 (UTC)
  1. Don't forget that by being hosted by Wikia, we prevent Wikia from setting up a rival Uncyclopedia to steal our webtraffic. Which they can, because somebody sold the intellectual property rights on Uncyclopedia to wikia. --Mn-z 19:34, March 13, 2010 (UTC)
Anyone can host Uncyc, and is free to do so. There are other versions of Uncyc on the internet now. Various mirrors for example. Wikia also already host various wikis which have a very similar theme to us. No one goes to them because they don't have the userbase which we have here. Uncyc is its userbase. It's not the content or the place it actually physically sits on the internet. Chron sold the domain name. He did not sell Uncyclopedia. If the userbased moved then in time who owned the "old" domain would not matter. No one owns the intellectual property because this is what matters.

Thus far, we have...

  1. It's free
  2. Limited ads (AdBlock Plus is a win)
  3. The site loads
  4. Pleasant odor (except in the UnNews and Poo Lit areas of the site)
  5. Wikia does things that we're too lazy to do ourselves
  6. We're on the internet
  7. The competition is nonexistent (because if we had any competition, we'd be done for)

Another pro

If we are not hosted by Wikia, then we may just as well become like Haiti (or New Orleans or Detroit or like Brazil), with the Village Dump populated full of slum-dwelling hobos and UnNews being controlled and owned by the Cabal (TINC). By having it hosted by a private company, we can thrive, crap and survive. That way, Whatport80 wouldn't overtake us as the best safe-for-work Wiki.
