Trying to create a new wiki, I have received this message: Wikia has exceeded the maximum number of wiki creations today(200). As a Romanian user, I was wondering what is Wikia MySql Default Character Set: Binary or UTF-8? --Eurodomenii 22:27, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

For the first matter, see Forum:Wiki Create Limit?
For the second one, i can't awnser but i'm pretty sure creating a wiki will work on any language in the drop down. — TulipVorlax 22:32, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
Wait, 200 wikis are seriously being created per day? --Michaeldsuarez (Talk) (Deeds) 03:37, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

They tell me, the default is latin1, but the data is encoded in utf8. they also tell me it really doesnt matter as it "somehow magically just works". Was there a specific issue you were wondering about the encodings?

And yes, we were actually hitting that limit per day, for a couple days in a row, we're looking into raising/tweaking the caps as we expand out our data storage systems, but thats a discussions for a different thread. --Uberfuzzy@Wikia 18:16, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

I'd like to join that thread to say that 200 wikis per day is really stupid! How am I going to get help when needed, if the wonderful but not yet omnipotent Uberfuzzy is engaged fighting the spam/hate/libel/copyvios on 200 wikis per day? JohnBeckett 02:08, 24 April 2009 (UTC)
Uberfuzzy, I'm glad that the limit is low. How many of these wikis would stay active for over a week or two? Five percent, maybe? --Michaeldsuarez (Talk) (Deeds) 02:40, 24 April 2009 (UTC)
I have 2 new forks one in FR and one in ES will wait to see what happends if there is a positive edit or in 1 month i will start complaining --Cizagna (Talk) Dofus » 03:44, 24 April 2009 (UTC)
