  • I'm sorry, but I have had to close the CoC wiki.  I know you have put a lot of work into it, but it's simply too explicit for Fandom.

    I hope you can find another service to host the wiki, I can make a database download of the text available if needed.

    • Okay, I understand, especially since I've had a day to cool off. In fact, if I was in your position I wouldn't hesitate to close a wiki about such hardcore pornographic material either. I'd also be annoyed about having to deliver bad news that should have been delivered by whoever was on duty when the wiki was created.

      I certainly hope that Fandom is investing in some kind of automated screening system, otherwise you're going to continue to have a lot of ticked off people. There are definitely a couple of wikis that I'll be keeping an eye on to see if they actually get closed.

      What really sucks for me is that Fandom basically has the wiki farm market cornered, so my choices of where to go are few and lacking.

      Thanks for the database, and good luck to you.

    • Where the line is can be hard to determine, there's a measure of the old adage "I know it when I see it". But basically, if a game/show/movie is about sex, then we don't want to host it. But if it just contains sex, it can stay - as long as it isn't shown or written about explicitly.

      So for the Game of Thrones example, the show had quite a lot of sex in it, but that wasn't its topic. So as long as they don't upload nudity or images of sex, or describe them in explicit language, they are okay. But a wiki about a H-game wouldn't pass, even if written about cleanly.

      And in the middle... that's where we have some very odd office discussions!

      Bahpple, I can't recommend a wiki farm, but I know there are others out there. For example, I believe some of the wikis that had to leave for similar reasons went to Miraheze.

      And on other wikis - I don't know which you mean, so I can't say if they are ones I'm aware of. With our unmoderated creation process, we may simply have not come across them so far. I agree that's not ideal, but I'm not sure what filters we will have in the future.
