Hello! Would you be interested in merging this wiki with the other Ducktales wiki? It means that the url for this wiki would redirect to that one and guarantees that all Ducktales information can be found in one place. Let me know what you think!
First question, what would happen to pages that are for the same subject matter, like Scrooge McDuck and Scrooge McDuck (2017). In that case, it seems like a user there plagiarized our page entirely without credit but whatever.
Furthermore, what would happen with articles with the same name? Like our Gyro Gearloose article and theirs. Would ours automatically replace their Gyro Gearloose 2017 article? Or vice versa? Or would content be meshed? Even though most of their 2017 articles appear to be copied from ours, a good number of them have content ours does not, compare our Louie Duck article to their Louie Duck article for example.
Additionally, a ton of pages would probably have to be moved around and several links would have to be changed. Is there any way to ease this process without the use of bots or external software like AWE?
On a related subject, what about media files that share the same name? Or would the entire process not be automatic and instead be manual? Because I wouldn't necessarily mind chipping in moving content over if others agree with it.
I'm guessing our staffs would also be combined but it seems like their sole bureaucrat has since retired as he put the wiki up for adoption himself (though still appears to active on the Lion Guard wiki)
I'm not against the merge, I'm just concerned. On the positive side of things, this would allow our wiki to reach a greater audience as we expand our scope to the greater DuckTales franchise (which is huge!). Not not mention the DuckTales wiki has a much larger community then ours, at least from a glance, meaning we'd hopefully get a lot more work done a lot faster. On this wiki, it's mostly me, Hilary and Basket that do most the work (no offense, Cartoon), so extra hands is defiantly appreciated.
Edit: I apologize for the length post above, I just now noticed how long it was. I took it upon myself to hopefully design some basic page structures since we may be a much bigger scope wiki. Here it is.
I don't know. I feel that are wiki focuses mainly on the new reboot, why their wiki focuses on the both shows. So here are my pros and cons:
1. CON: I feel like the merging process, would be difficult, I read Darkanine's comment, and I have a lot of similar concerns. I feel like a lot of the hard work we've done to build this wiki up in the last few months, would somewhat go down the drain. Also, would all our edits (e.g. I have over 1k edits), start over?
2. CON: Are show is still very new. Are wiki only just celebrated it's first birthday in December. So I'm not concerned much about are lack of community (yet). I already can tell its grown tremendously since I joined, including Darkanine and Hillary. We already have 163 pages, despite the show only airing nine episodes (but of course the comics).
3. PRO: Merging would allow one destination for DuckTales fans, and not having to worry about choosing one or being a part of both. On that note, if your only a fan of the new DuckTales and the comics (such as I myself, more-or-less) then this wiki is a good place for you. If your a fan of both the orginal and the reboot, then the DuckTales wiki is a good place for you.
My descision: No. I like this wiki being seperate. No offense to Cartoon (he has only made 1 edit in a week), but like Darkanine said, me, him, and Hillary do most of the work. I feel like despite him being the founder, and one of two bureaucrats, he shouldn't get the only say in this. Also our other bureaucrat, Alex, hasn't been seen over here for weeks, and tends to make most of his "DuckTales Edits" on the Disney wiki. We should still get his opinion on the matter.
So again, I would like to stay two seperate wikis.
I forgot to mention it in this thread but upon thinking about it, I also do not agree with the merge for much the same reasons as Basket, and also because the Scrooge McDuck wiki basically fills in the role of a multi-duck Wiki as is and we'd just be treading in their coverage.
Hi guys! Thanks for you all getting back to me with your concerns. Merging is a long process that does require going through pages, images, etc and weeding out which pages/images are already on the new wiki and which aren't. That would be something that I'd help you with if you were interested in merging. But it looks like the consensus is that you'd like to stay as a separate wiki. Which is totally fine and I understand your concerns. I only suggested the merge because I think it'd be good to have all Ducktales information on one wiki. Thank you so much for entertaining the idea though and the creation of the merging blog post. That was very thoughtful of you to put together Darkanine.
Hello. I saw your request, and I just enabled .ttf (TrueType Font) to be uploaded on this wiki. So you can download SF Fedora to your computer and upload it here. Let me know if you need help with the CSS that will allow you to use the font.
I don't like how you switched it. It makes it harder to edit articles, I don't like how it looks, and did ask any of the other admins before switching it? I know your the founder, but you should still always get the input of other admins/staff.
