Wikia's plan for us. Snowflake mini Mattsnow 13:13, December 8, 2011 (UTC)

We've probably all thought about this at some point and maybe this has been proposed before. What if...in the worst case scenario the wiki is cut from wikia or if wikia shuts us (or is shut) down for whatever reason. Should we not have a place to regroup and deal with such a "worst case scenario". How would we all figure things out? Maybe its as simple as having a facebook page for just that very reason...or at the least agreeing we would use the current face book page to deal with such a disaster? What do you guys think? And who just farted? --ShabiDOO 18:25, December 7, 2011 (UTC)

Wikia has no plans to screw us in the ass and hide the toilet paper. Pay no attention to the man behing the curtain. Aleister 18:37 7-12-'11
You know the movie The Road? Like in that film, Uncyclopedian's would start eating each-other if Wikia did that. Some of us, I won't say who, live for the day when this takes place. I call Lyrithya's boobs and Alsister's eyeballs.--Sycamore (Talk) 22:38, December 7, 2011 (UTC)
I know ... when the worst case scenario happens and all of you are staring at the headlights that have already hit you ... I'll publish a book of the best of the best here and make a million dollars while you all say "my god ... if only we paid attention to Shabidoo ... life isn't worth living any more" and I ... will send you all a signed copy of the book ... for free (not including shipping and handling). :) :) :) --ShabiDOO 00:03, December 8, 2011 (UTC)
As long as the Albert Camus novel, The Stranger makes it in, then my immortality is assured...--Sycamore (Talk) 11:12, December 8, 2011 (UTC)

Hey, I thought we had a Facebook page, but it seems it no longer exists, what happened? Snowflake mini Mattsnow 21:08, December 8, 2011 (UTC)
You mean this? It still exists. Sir SockySexy girls Mermaid with dolphin Tired Marilyn Monroe (talk) (stalk)Magnemite Icons-flag-be GUN SotM UotM PMotM UotY PotM WotM 21:51, 8 December 2011
Unfortunately. --Hotadmin4u69 [TALK] 22:30 Dec 8 2011
On the contrary; that would not be a worst-case scenario at all. Many of us save database dumps from time to time, and images are cached various places, so a large portion of the wiki could easily be recovered even with the thing itself gone, and we would likely still have IRC from which to coordinate. And if that did happen, that would mean Uncyclopedia would be free to go wherever without much of anything standing in the way - part of what makes it so hard for communities to leave Wikia is the company's tendency to keep the content around even when the entire community moves away, a shadow copy that continues to rank high in search results on Google and the like regardless of how active it may be, making it that much harder for people to find the real, active wiki. But without such a hindrance, moving would be much simpler, and even those not on IRC would be able to eventually trickle back. Sure, there'd be initial disarray and a fair amount of annoyance from what all would be lost, but we'd recover, because people would be able to find us, wherever we wind up, and the wiki could potentially do even better than before. May not; how good the host is can make a major difference in that, but for websites findability makes a world of difference. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 08:56, 11 December 2011
Thanks lyrithya. --ShabiDOO 14:00, December 11, 2011 (UTC)

More worst case scenarios

I found an even worse case scenario: Wikia blows us up, just like in "The Day After", where explosions made us see skeletons. GiratinaOriginForme |Si Plebius Dato' (Sir) Joe ang Man on Fire CUN|IC Kill 800px-Flag of the Philippines svg | 00:31, December 10, 2011 (UTC)

What about The Day Before, where everything was fine? Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:10, December 10, 2011 (UTC)



No, Wikia is going to do this. GiratinaOriginForme |Si Plebius Dato' (Sir) Joe ang Man on Fire CUN|IC Kill 800px-Flag of the Philippines svg | 08:04, December 11, 2011 (UTC)
