Pcj, one of at least 10 World of Warcraft administrators who left wikia to start wowpedia.org and who recently lost their adminship because of a "conflict of interest" previously wrote several extremely comprehensive sections about the pros and cons of leaving wikia:
- Important changes with the new skin
- What we would leave behind
- What we would gain
- What would stay the same
Unfortunately, this weekend I may leave wikia too. If I do, I will write a detailed how to guide about how to transfer a wiki, complete with screenshots, etc, and post it on Forum:Anti-Wikia Alliance. I have written guide books before, both in print and online, so I hope the guide will be clear to even the most computer illiterate.
