Uncyclopedia.wikia.com is becoming Uncyclopedia.fandom.com. All the wikia sites are changing from wikia.com to fandom.com. I actually knew this a long time ago, but wasn't supposed to say anything so I didn't. But now it's public knowledge. https://community.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Brandon_Rhea/Wiki_domains_will_be_changing_from_wikia.com_to_fandom.com_in_early_2019 AdminBadge DAP Dame Pleb Com.

I've seen the notice bell rang a couple of minutes ago. And... there's nothing we can/should do about it, right?--The Pioneer JP (talk) 18:53, August 15, 2018 (UTC)
A lot of people are posting on the notice, and people aren't happy with it. I posted. I actively admin five wikis, and only one of them is a fan site. If you're looking for a humor wiki, would you click on a link that says wikia.com or one that says fandom.com? We could lose a lot of visitors. AdminBadge DAP Dame Pleb Com.

No, nothing we can do. Wikia makes decisions without any input from their users. They know better than us. Or not.
I left a comment there. I'm not happy either. Why weren't you supposed to tell us, Miley? ❦ Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 22:17 16 August 2018
I wouldn't bet on there being nothing that "we" can do. A certain Admin of Half a Dozen Wikia Sites was a non-admin when she got the decision of half a dozen Uncyclopedia admins overruled. When she had a battle over control of a Wikia with some long-term members, she got the head of the corporation the site was about to support her. She even got a final decision of a long-time Wikia Staff member overruled. That's not to mention that a certain other Wikia Staff member that butted heads with the Discordian American Princess is now no longer working for Wikia. Nobody messes with the Princess and comes away unscathed. I know I haven't. I still miss my other arm. Compassrose Tyrophile ALDEN LOVESHADE??? (Also I like cheese)  03:12, August 17, 2018 (UTC)
I posted a comment that I'm not happy with it. Uncyclopedia is not a fan site of anything, it's a wiki. Compassrose Tyrophile ALDEN LOVESHADE??? (Also I like cheese)  03:02, August 17, 2018 (UTC)
'Fandom' sounds so geeky and pre-adolescent. Why abandon 'Wikia'? I have added my comment on the community centre. At least we've been given a few months to complain about this latest move from the WeEvils. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 09:17, August 17, 2018 (UTC)
Looking through the comments on the community centre, some other wikia sites have pointed that renaming a wikia site into a fandom one will lead to absurdities like 9/11.fandom and cancer fandom. Fans of people flying planes into buildings or supporting cancer! I know San Francisco can be dumb but this is the dumbest of the dumb ideas. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 09:24, August 17, 2018 (UTC)

I signed! Great to see you back, Binky! AdminBadge DAP Dame Pleb Com. Miley Spears (talk) 19:07, August 22, 2018 (UTC)
Me too. It made me click through a bunch of "sharing" stuff before it said I signed. Hmph. I expect this won't do anything, but you know, hope for the best and prepare for the worst. The original comment I posted on Brandon's blog post seems to have fallen off the end -- I can't find it anymore. never mind ❦ Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 22:51 23 August 2018
