I have created a wiki and there are a few articles on wikipedia on that topic. So how can I import them to my wiki? — ¤ULTIMATE SUPREME ¤ (T@lk) 08:17, June 13, 2012 (UTC)

wikipedia:Special:Export/Main_Page
to export the page (this example uses "Main Page")
Special:Import
on your wiki to import the file you created at export
Be sure to edit that file to change the usernames to something else, since Wikia usernames don't match Wikipedia's (say by appending "@en.wikipedia.org" to usernames)
