Evening all. Well, some of you may be wondering what is behind all this Wikia-Uncyc stuff which is going on over at Forum:Decisions Time Folks - Let's Be Organized for a Change and the various other related pages. I have been at Uncyc myself for only just over a year, and missed much of what has happened in the past. I suspect it's the same for many of our current users. I apologise to the old timers who remember all this, but I thought it might be useful to provide some links to remind/inform people of what has come before...

You may have noticed that Carlb has set this thing set-up from his comments here. Carlb's page contains much about Wikia in general and some of the issues it's having with other wikis.

We are obviously primarily concerned with the well being of our wiki, so I'm sure that Carlb will not mind, that I have copied his text from here below:

  • Major backlash both to the uncyclopedia.org domain name being secretly sold to Jimbo Wales in July 2006 and to it being turned into a mere redirect to uncyclopedia.wikia.com in 2008
  • A little under half of the community expresses desire to move the wiki in 2008; most of the others are willing to allow one last chance for negotiation but this (so far) leads nowhere
  • An off-site archive of Uncyclopedia content (mirror.uncyc.org, miroir.desencyclopedie.org) has existed since 2006 but is rarely used
  • The ultimate fate of en.uncyc remains to be determined

For 2006, see Announcement: Wikia & Uncyclopedia, Things don't add up

For 2007, see Wikia Spotlight

For 2008, see Uncyclopedia domain name, Uncyclopedia: An Essay On Uncyclopedia by RAHB, An open letter to the Cabal and Decisions Time Folks - Let's Be Organized for a Change.

At Uncyc, we still have hopes that an amicable arrangement can be met which is satisfactory to both Uncyc and Wikia. If you are interested, and want to be a part of this process it's probably a good idea to familiarise yourself with the above forums. OK, I know that they are might be longer than RAHB's penis but take a look anyway. No... The forums. Not the penis.

Have a read through, and make up your own mind about what's going on...

Soon it really might be Decisions Time Folks and we may need to be Organized for a Change... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 02:10, Dec 4

I have a question: since when did RAHB's penis steal the spotlight from theob's? --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 02:49, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
Donald Trump: Hmmm. I like this island... how much will it cost?
Islanders: This island is not for sale.
Trump: Too late, I already bought it by bribing your tribal elder with 'seeing stones'.
Islanders: What? Why didn't you ask us first?
Trump: Too much legal nonsense. Also, I can do what the heck I want because I have the caaaaaash.
In summary, beans. -- Hindleyite Converse 12:56, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
