How do I create a new answers site? I can't see a link to do this in the create a wiki tab.Hockeyben 03:24, March 7, 2011 (UTC)

Go to an answers site and the create new wiki link is replaced by a create new answers site link--GodPray  03:34,3/7/2011 

This hasn't worked for me. I'm still getting the create a standard wiki, even from the Answers create wiki site. Could you provide a link to the answer wiki creation form.Hockeyben 04:22, March 7, 2011 (UTC)

Wikia's new update for the creation form removed the option to create an answers wiki. Best to use Special:Contact and tell staff about this issue. --Azuris(talk) 05:19, March 7, 2011 (UTC)
It seems that Answers sites have been abandoned by Wikia. There are lots of bugs open and feature requests about answers sites, but nobody on Wikia cares about them. I'm pretty sure that's another unsupported Wikia feature. --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) -WikiDex 09:20, March 7, 2011 (UTC)
Yup, Answers sites were almost unsupported from creation onward and seem to have gotten little or no attention from Wikia for months. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 7 Mar 2011 7:44 AM Pacific
The leg is hurting, therefore it must be amputated. Classic management. Is is possible that the button was removed, but the actual page for creating still exists?  Monchoman45  Talk  Contribs  Skystone  15:49,3/7/2011 
Looks like it's gone from special:CreateWiki. Only wild mass guessing can tell what's coming next... RandomTime 15:57, March 7, 2011 (UTC)
So Wikia's literally deleted the only way to create an answers wiki?  Monchoman45  Talk  Contribs  Skystone  17:46,3/7/2011 
I've contacted staff. Maybe this was an oversite. Hockeyben 17:53, March 7, 2011 (UTC)
I seriously doubt that Wikia would accidentally delete the page for creating an answers wiki. Furthermore, I'm a bit disappointed that nothing about this was mentioned in the blog for this set of changes.  Monchoman45  Talk  Contribs  Skystone  18:38,3/7/2011 
I found a way to create an english answers site. Go to one of the foreign answer sites, Click the create a new answers site, and your lead to the old wiki creation form. Choose an answers wiki, select your language as english, and you've create a new answers site. This probably won't work for very long though, as the foreign sites wiki create forms will be converted soon, but works for now... --Hockeyben 20:59, March 7, 2011 (UTC)

Hi, we've taken the ability to create new answers sites off the creation form while we review the project. What will possibly happen is we will rewrite the answers funtionality to work on the Wikia skin and start moving people accross to that. But, as I said, nothing is decided... so we don't have any definite annoucements to make yet. Sorry for the wait everyone but, as always, there's a lot going on right now! -- sannse WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 23:24, March 7, 2011 (UTC)

If anyone does want to make an answers site during this transition period, it is still possible using this link. For anyone with an existing answers site, we're looking for beta testers for some changes. Please sign up here. Angela 03:06, March 9, 2011 (UTC)
Tagging this {{FAQ}}... if only to reveal the debacle that is answers sites. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 9 Mar 2011 7:42 AM Pacific
