Objections to Archival[edit source]

I object to this wiki being archived. It is vastly superior to the Fandom equivalent, with a lot of organized enemy data and area data. If one of the wikis had to be archived, it should be the Fandom version. — Unsigned commend added by Gunyentony

I also object to this wiki being archived. It serves a different purpose to the Fandom wiki, as mostly a minimalistic repository of technical data, rather than focusing on the lore, setting and characters. Further, the Fandom wiki is mostly inactive; it has a handful of recent edits, with no obvious oversight. In contrast, the administrator of this wiki is still active.

At time of writing this comment, in the last 90 days, the Fandom wiki has received 5 changes to the body of articles in the main namespace, of which: one was vandalism; one reverted that vandalism; one was correcting a tiny error. Of the other two, one added a trivia section with completely unsourced speculation, and the other expanded on a plot element.

In the same period on this wiki, Gunyentony added the entire Video Game Magazines article, archiving the known times Skies of Arcadia appeared in print media. In addition, I am taking part in active datamining on this game, and we are planning to present our findings on this wiki once we have progressed further and collated the data. --AdituV (talk) 08:14, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

Big objection to this, the Gamepedia wiki is far superior to the Fandom version and a spectacular source of well organized information for fans. The Fandom wiki is missing numerous images in the enemies section, is generally badly organized and lacks a lot of actual information in lieu of random bits of speculation and personal opinion. It also has no information about original Japanese terminology, or anything of the sort. Absolutely awful idea to have THAT be the sole source of information on Skies of Arcadia - would be a massive disservice to fans everywhere. --Guest

Objection! This Gamepedia wiki is referenced by the Skies of Arcadia Speedrunning Community almost every time for routing purposes! This wiki holds accurate and up to date information, while the fandom wiki has far less and inaccurate information on the game. Our community still updates this Gamepedia wiki when we have new findings on the game's data, lore, art and history. Archiving this wiki would be a devastation to our community. --7thArmstrong (talk) 09:33, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

Belated, but while I'm not a huge Skies fans, this wiki clearly has some very useful resource pages. If anything a reverse merge to here would make more sense, but if merged to Fandom, then all of the existing content should be moved (and ideally some of that awful Fandom styling overridden with something simpler and more functional, nobody does black backgrounds anymore).

Hello everyone. Since there have been so many objections to archiving this wiki, I'm taking the initiative to cancel this. I can't promise that it won't be revisited and discussed further at a later time, but this wiki is safe for now. OOeyes (talk) 21:19, 13 June 2020 (UTC)
