NB: This is not about the wikia.com --> fandom.com debacle.
The Last Stand Wiki had its URL quietly changed from tlaststand.wikia.com to thelaststand.wikia.com around November 30 -- it was so subtle that I didn't even notice until today. Yes, I can imagine a million reasons as to why this URL change was done, but that's not what made me angry: the thing that concerns me is that this change was done without any notification to the community whatsoever and was done without even the slightest bit of consultation prior to the matter.
I've already emailed Staff and want an explanation as to why this was done. Even with the wikia.com to fandom.com kerfuffle, community members were at least notified. Why on earth was this change done without even any notification?
Are you sure none of the other admins submitted the request? Either way, Tupka217 is correct. Only staff would be able to actually tell you what happened.
I got a response from Staff earlier today. There are no other active admins on the wiki aside from me, and I most certainly did not submit the request. The change was done for SEO optimization, which I can understand, but it still doesn't excuse why this was done without even notifying the community.
