Discussion about the Wiki itself[edit]

Hi Alan,

Now that the new Wiki is public, will discussion about the Wiki move onto the Wiki itself? I know that much of the preparation prior to the big event happened on Discord, and my understanding is that was out of a need for privacy when discussion plans. I avoid Discord, so I had to opt out of participating in those discussions. I was wondering if the public launch might move Wiki discussion back into a more public-facing arena (like the Wiki itself) or if people just generally prefer Discord and I'm in the minority.

Thank you for all your hard work and time invested! It's a big benefit to all of us. PSGarak (talk) 03:30, 19 March 2021 (UTC)

Hi! Thanks for the kind words, and for reaching out about your concerns. I fully plan to have discussion of wiki matters shift back on-wiki after launch (i.e. user talk pages and blogs, I assume?)

Discord will remain available for users who prefer it, to submit text for inclusion on the wiki or to get help with templates or modules, e.g., but I won't make any major decisions without giving notice on-wiki, and I'll strongly encourage major discussions to occur on-wiki.

I hope this at least partially assuages your concerns. Please don't hesitate to ask if anything else comes up. Alan (talk) 04:19, 19 March 2021 (UTC)

I must admit I never really liked those as a discussions platform. I did once a long time ago build a basic draft of a central discussions page at User:Asarta/ExampleTalkPage would there be potential in using such a thing? (cc'ing @PSGarak) --Asarta (talk) 14:23, 24 March 2021 (UTC)
Perfect, that's exactly what I was hoping for. Thanks so much! PSGarak (talk) 13:28, 19 March 2021 (UTC)

Fandom account merging[edit]

So… I've created a new account here, with the same username I had on Fandom… can they still be merged somehow? Lohoris (talk) 23:09, 17 June 2021 (UTC)

Hi! From what I can see, the only thing you've done on the Fallen London Wiki on Fandom is one comment four days ago - before then, you didn't exist on that wiki. The list of users was taken on the 22nd March, and it's not possible to merge anything from the Fandom wiki after that. There's not much to be merged, I don't think.
