I'm not sure what % done the import of text is. I did not personally save the pictures but a volunteer from /a/ (anime imageboard) said he backed it up on archive.org and there appears to be a torrent file for it.
Once I've verified step 1 (import of source code) is done I'll inquire on Phabricator about image import.
Text import is most important because then we can add new stuff while we wait for the restoration of the old stuff. The most important data has always been the issue numbers and page numbers (or episodes and seconds) since those specifics can always be used to rebuild lost info.
That is also why I've always emphasized we should add that where possible, since text is easier to save than image.
That's a question for Paladox since they're the member of the Miraheze staff who've been assigned to take care of the import. I'm not really sure. Unlike when I use Special:Import manually, it doesn't appear to show a log when Phabricator imports documents, or else I'm not sure how to display it, so I can't see if it's still ongoing or what has or hasn't been done.
I mean, ideally you'd think they would amend their policy visibly BEFORE closing down wikis. Considering the rough treatment animebaths got (though not nearly as rough as animeslaps or KNJ which were shut down years before the Fandom merger) animefeet was pretty much coddled and got many more months of prep thanks to Sannse's generosity.
I could've done more with that time, was lazy and dragged my feet on it and hoped for others to pick up the slack, I was never the founder to begin with, even if I did end up broadening and growing it after adoption.
I don't think we'll need many administrators at the new place to start off.
The project is not, and has never been, for 'fetish shots': it is a neutral encyclopedic documentation of situations where characters are barefoot, that is all.
There is already an animefeet blogspot, you could also contribute there if you are worried about Miraheze shutting down. I am always open to looking for backup hosts in addition to MH. I'm presently having trouble importing the database there anyway.

Miraheze never announced that they are going to shut down, nor are they going to shut down their wikis, closing is optional if a user of one of it's staff members chooses it. I think it's just that your still on FANDOM and if they close these sites because it was a business decision to do so. Also a user that is a founder or bureaucrat of any Miraheze wikis could choose whether you are an admin or not.
Once we do finish setting up on Miraheze it wouldn't hurt to keep looking for 2nd host in case they adopt Wikia-like policies in the future. The transition would've went a lot smoother if we'd gotten an earlier start on Miraheze.
I gotta say, I am impressed by your knowledge of characters from both franchises. Despite owning the Shadow Chronicles RPG and several sourcebooks and manga, I still haven't around to watching either the Macross anime or the Robotech dub :( I had a chance during a Netflix demo and I blew it!
You have blocked Hunteriscool because he reported your wiki, and the block reason is "inserting false information"? You are suppressing dissent against yourself and your wiki. You are unfit to lead.
Furthermore, there was a poll about whether or not non-human characters should be allowed on the wiki, and the majority opinion was "no". Now that you're back, the wiki is once again a cesspool of yiff.
Reporting a wiki under false pretenses is inserting false information. For those clearly editing in bad faith (abandoned for years, suddenly shows up only to criticize and hide their participation) I see no reason to give the potential to disrupt the project like I did with you. If they want to blog their outrage some more, I haven't restricted talk page privileges.
"Yiff" is a verb implying the depiction of sexual intercourse between furries. I have banned depictions of sex from the outset because those violate Wikia ToU. If you or HIC were aware of any which has escaped my notice, you should have reported them.
You were going beyond banning "yiff" to banning even things which looked more human than animal, which reflects a large segment of anime characters.
The majority of the userbase (or even majority of admins) did not participate in your rushed poll, so I do not recognize it as legitimate. More than a majority would be needed, for more than a mere week of input, to support such an extreme change as deleting the swaths of content that you did.
Even after this disruption you also tried to close the community. At this point I'm not even sure if bunniewedge is real or just some persona you made up as a false flag to chase to convince me to give you rights to deal with them. Either way, I haven't seen you build anything and get the impression you just came to troll the furfans there by trying to game voting in a hidden corner.
"At this point I'm not even sure if bunniewedge is real or just some persona you made up as a false flag to chase to convince me to give you rights to deal with them."
Keep your false accusations to yourself.
Also, admit it, the wiki is a sinking ship, and what's been sinking it is the borderline nonexistent quality control. There is such a thing as being TOO lax, you know. You have allowed fake characters that are nothing more than shitty recolors, characters with no physical human qualities, character pages that have only fanart, "fanart" that is little more than poor-quality photoshop edits... honestly, I'd be happy if FANDOM just killed it with fire at this point. You were the captain of the ship, and it sunk fast.
GMB this is not an accusation, I simply summarized that I was assuming good faith, but am no longer doing so.
what's been sinking it is the borderline nonexistent quality control
That has certainly BLOATED it, and I agree it is a problem. If for example I can figure out how to archive the files on it, it's going to take up a lot more room for not having deleted the bloat.
A lot of that has to do with people posting every.single.frame of certain scenes which is kind of excessive. I never used to do that even back when I used to fastidiously screencap anime.
fake characters that are nothing more than shitty recolors
I am open to deleting stuff like that if it's pointed out. I do want to make sure to not delete an article until all the files displayed on it are deleted first though. Articles are cheap and text-based and the greater concern is the bloat in filesize from undeleted files polluting an archive.
One problem I face here is that I do want to be open to including self-published works like webcomics or doujin, so while I do want to exclude garbage OCs, I need to find a fair way to write policy guidelines for doing so that doesn't depend on my individual aesthetics.
I'm sure there's a lot of pages you and I would both love to see go, but I just want to find a neutral way to exclude them which doesn't seem like I'm personally discriminating against stuff I dislike. For example: perhaps a franchise should have a minimum number of printings or chapters to be considered notable enough for a page? What number would you pick?
characters with no physical human qualities
I think that depends on what you define as a human quality. The word 'foot' does not imply anything human. I am open to the possibility of forking into sub-projects (e.g. "anime human feet" for 100% humans, including the exclusion of Kryptonians, elves, etc even if they look identical, "anime hooves" for all the ponies/centaurs, "anime paws" for most of the furries,) but I believe that should include longer-term discussions, and no articles should be deleted.
I want to maintain the edit history of articles, so if we exported the files to a fork, I would prefer to simply overwrite the gallery coding on a page with a link to the forked page. "Special:Export" and "Special:Import" should also be used to maintain the page history of contributors so that credit is properly retained and we don't miss anything.
Disputes about the quality of fanart are why they always go either at the bottom or a sub-page, so as not to distract from canon. I'm hesitant to censor artwork simply because some artists are more talented than others, it seems like a slippery slope.
Rather than utterly censor them, one compromise could be to make the thumbnails for bad art smaller, and delegate it to the bottom. I just imagine disputes between people about what art belongs up top, which is why I always just alphabetized it by artist.
I am aware you want Fandom to kill the project. Certainly prior to "this point", since you nominated it for deletion a month ago while you were still a moderator and before I returned and blocked you.
You did this instead of deleting the fanart and similar that you were complaining about, so it seems you already gave up on it before my return.
The Wikia>Fandom transition has been resulting in a lot of project death. This already happened to AnimeBaths, for example, and it didn't suffer any of the issues you've complained about. WM ran a tight ship and had much higher standards for inclusion than I did. Would only allow manga which had been physically published on paper, for example.
A big reason I was very inclusive was that Wikia didn't have any data caps. Our hard drives and places like mega.nz certainly do though, so I am now being attracted to the merits of culling mass quantities of files to cut down on the bloat, to prepare for file backup. Files are more important to delete than pages though, so I wouldn't want a page nominated for deletion until all of its files were nominated first. Pages take up very little space (just text source code) compared to the files.
In the case of fanart, when it already exists on an external host (like deviantart) I can see merit in deleting it (or perhaps over-writing it with a scaled-down version that is much smaller, to take up less space) and just linking to the source page for people to visit if they want to see the original at max size.
As for screenshots, for these "every single frame" batches, I can see reducing those too.
I think we could have co-operated well in regard to this. I wish you had left up some contact info or contacted me during my block and discussed what you were doing. Forking furries is an okay idea, but it was just done in too much of a rush, and without active engagement in backing up the content properly prior to deleting it, as well as without achieving community consensus.
I think you would have found consensus and co-operation more forthcoming if we had approached it as a fork rather than a cull. A split between hooves/paws (semantic subtopics of "foot") is also more natural than "furries" which is vague and sounds like it's talking about even a girl who merely has cat ears but who has an otherwise humanoid body.
Certain characters would also be in a gray area of "is this paw-ish enough to be considered a paw?" where they might merely have long nails, like https://animefeet.fandom.com/wiki/File:Catra_11.png but are still probably more human-ish than feline-ish. Those are areas I would leave until the end (I see you rushed to delete Wilykit immediately, bad form) and focus on more obvious fork-worthy examples like https://animefeet.fandom.com/wiki/Simba which should be the priority.
What I would've liked to do, is to create a new template (similar to delete, move or merge) called "fork" or "export" where people can nominate pages they think should be exported to a fork, and then a 2nd party (mod on both) can enact the Special:Export if they agree with it, or delay consideration for gray cases.
You can't easily do stuff like that if there's a rush to delete pages. There was no time limit to doing that.
Given that the fork others created "anime furry feet" got deleted, forking is not a present priority until I can ascertain content will have a safe home. The greater priority is archiving the content in case staff do decide to end the project.
Do you know any way of calculating the sum of file sizes to know the storage requirements? If they exceed what is feasible for me, this will motivate me to begin permitting purges of mirror-linked fanart, excessive multiframes, or characters who are on the bottom rungs of notability (ie 'fake' as you put it, kind of a misnomer since ALL characters are fake)

Pretty much everything Jim to the Ski put on the wiki qualifies as this. And I would like to point out that this page blatantly uses stolen artwork that has been recolored - 
This "Jim to the Sky" is definitely a different person than this "JIMENOPOLIX" on DeviantArt? Temporarily blocking JttS while I ask about this. Even if I were open to allowing recolored fan characters, alterations of others' artwork definitely should not be done without giving credit to the original artist.
Update: unless he provides proof in the next week of that art not predating the deviantart, I will assume the red is just a recolor of the blonde as you say, and delete it all. Do you have any other examples? Until a reasonable period for explanation I've linked to the DA.
I think I should come up with a template for adding a kind of review category to cases like these. I don't want to add 'delete' since then it will be seen like a command, but moreso 'review for recolor' or 'just an edit, not original' for accusations like this so I don't lose track of them.
I won't jump to assuming mostly all the art the user adds is a recolor, but now I'm beginning to wonder about this 'gingerverse' in general. I had tolerated it earlier mostly because I had assumed it to be original artwork.
If people are just taking a couple seconds to change a hair color and make up a new name based on others' work, that's intolerable. I don't want blue-haired Gohans called "Blohan" flooding the place, after all. So recolors are definitely a place I feel comfortable drawing a line at. If people can't be bothered to make original art of a character, they just aren't notable enough to include.
That said... it does make me wonder where this will leave cases like Betty/Veronica or other series where not much variation is done between characters' faces. I think my standard would be "is this an alteration I could easily make?" and if so, delete it.
