For those who have not yet heard: Last year, Gamepedia and Fandom joined forces and are now two platforms on the same network. Later this year, we'll even become one unified platform. The teams at both Gamepedia and Fandom want to encourage our communities to work together now instead of splitting their efforts and competing with each other for readers and new editors.
I'd like to know how all of you here feel about uniting with Gamepedia's Official Dead by Daylight Wiki. That would mean we archive one wiki - lock it from editing but keep the pages accessible to readers - and put a banner up that directs visitors towards the other, active wiki. Anyone who used to edit the now-archived wiki would be able to contribute to the active wiki, and any content on one side that's missing on the other can be moved over with edit histories intact. Note: No merger will take place if both communities don't agree to it.
The advantages of becoming one community working together are clear: By working together, all fans of Dead by Daylight could build a resource on the game more effectively, keep it up-to-date more easily, and players would no longer be confused as to which site they should turn to for information.
Both wikis have significant amounts of content. This wiki gets about 302k page views a month where the Gamepedia Official wiki gets a little over 5 million page views per month. That makes Gamepedia the logical choice for the primary wiki in this case.
Keep in mind that later this year, both the Gamepedia and this Fandom wiki will move onto the same platform and then have a very similar if not the same layout, tool set and staff support.
Could you see yourself contributing to the Gamepedia wiki? Would you prefer to keep the two communities separate entirely? Please speak up!
