From what I can make out, wikia are also planning to do this to the other major wikis with their own domains. Thought you might want to know! Spang (talk) 06:46, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Woohoo! Another coffin nail to add to our collection! -- Cid Highwind 10:59, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Personally, I don't think it matters as much to MA and how people use it, and what it is supposed to be, than it does to Uncyclopedia. We aren't trying to look like a parody of Wikipedia, where having "wikia" in the URL is disruptive. Hell, Memory Beta gets on fine with "Wikia" in the URL. The biggest resistance will be from people who used MA before the merge with Wikia several years ago, and that isn't many of us. Not sure if even Alan dates that far back. Of course, there will be those (myself included) upset by simply not having a choice in the matter, in having this "forced" on us. --OuroborosCobra talk 14:45, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
Back in the days of fundraisers..ah yes I remember them well....iirc, it was a great service to MA that wikia let us continue to use the address.... --Alan 16:00, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
w:Memory Alpha: Memory Alpha is officially not a Wikia, since it is hosted on a separate domain, and released under the Creative Commons by-nc license (details) rather than the GFDL. Instead, it is a sister project of Wikia, along with Uncyclopedia.
Not that this has meant much in the past, what with Wikia people outright stating that they can and will do whatever they like regarding the "Memory Alpha" brand. -- Cid Highwind 19:27, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

The same things apply to Uncyclopedia, and it doesn't seem to bother them. Sister project, advertising tool... it's all the same to some people. Hopefully we can get them to reconsider. Spang (talk) 20:53, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

I don't know how you can read the Uncyclopedia conversation and claim "it doesn't seem to bother them." Unless by "them" you mean "Wikia". --OuroborosCobra talk 22:07, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
That's how I read it.... "them" = "wikia". --Alan 22:10, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
