In regards to the recent post on the dead rising wikia addressed to me, which I will copy here:
Apologies for the rather late notification about this, but you may be aware of deadrisingwiki.com, which forked from this wiki some time ago. Tomorrow, we plan to import the content from that wiki to Wikia, first as a separate wiki. Ultimately, they would like to merge back into this one, creating a busier, better wiki for everyone.
Such a merge should not affect the rights of any users on this wiki, and hopefully should be minimally disruptive. Once the other wiki has been imported over to Wikia, we'll work with both wikis to work out the best way to proceed.
Please do let me know if you have any questions, and best regards, Kirkburn (talk) 19:35, November 19, 2013 (UTC)
What content is being merged, exactly? Any extra pages that they've made that aren't on here, I'm assuming, as well as photos and videos? What will happen to pages that exist on both wikias, will their edits/current page overwrite the ones here?
Thanks - I'm glad you picked up the message not long after I wrote it (apologies again for the late notice). Once we've imported the other wiki onto Wikia we can determine the best kind of merge to perform, but ideally it should keep the best of everything - there's no particular reason anything needs to be lost.
Media can be magically copied over, and I believe we should be able rename any filename duplicates (I'm not certain, but hopeful).
For articles, that's obviously more difficult - if the name is unique it can simply be added as a new article. If the filename matches, we may have a few options: rename the new one, or merge the histories. In the latter case, whichever version has the latest revision is the one that will be shown - and simple editing can switch that. Depending on how much the articles have diverged, I'm not sure which will work best - but it's something we can work out.
We've reproduced the issue, and are working on it further. Essentially, the updated Table of Contents code is a little confused by images within section titles, and we'll put it back to the way it was before (where the image is stripped out).
Hello, I just read your post about the category exhibition feature because I'm having a bit of a problem with it. According to that post my article pages' image should be appearing in the category galleries, but for some reason none of the recently created articles' images are showing up in the gallery. All the new page's icon image are walls of text even though the images fit into the criteria you listed. Could you please help?
