Well, Wikia I mean FANDOM®™℠, will likely no longer host their lesser forked version of Uncyclopedia. Posted by User:Sannse, today (February 26, 2019), "Trying to clean up Uncyclopedia would be impossible, and would involve deleting valid (but problematic) article like these. That simply isn't feasible."

As a previous host of several forked wikis, I'm extremely excited for this wiki. There's nothing better than losing Wikia's SEO competition. As far as their content though, would this be a good opportunity to take on some of the content from there? Once this admin team left, it pretty much went to shit but, I'm sure there's at least something worth keeping. It's not like they want it anymore.

I suggested on their forum that, maybe, a wikia.uncyclopedia.co (or old.uncyclopedia.co because they'll probably throw a fit about using their name) could exist. My idea is to back it up, dump the trash, and keep a few of their community members. This thread isn't a proposition for that specific idea but, its the only thing creative I could come up with.

As an admin on the other site, there are several concerns about merging with this site. (1) What about Wikia Uncyclopedia community members and admins who feel unwelcome on this site, particularly major contributors to Uncyclopedia Wikia? (2) WHO decides what, exactly, is "Trash"? What rules can be mutually come up with to agree what articles are trash? (3) What happens to articles that have different versions on the current Wikia Uncyclopedia and on this site? (4) How can we set policies that improve the quality standards of this wiki without driving away new community members? (5) This is not a complete list of concerns, it is just the most pressing ones in my opinion.
