20.05.2013 @ 22:25At long last, the German, Italian, Polish and French Witcher wikis are moving over to Curse. The moves will be happening over the course of this week (May 20-24, 2013). I'll edit this post and add the urls as the wikis go live.
- German wiki: new Curse location
- Italian wiki: new Curse location
- French wiki: new Curse location
- Polish wiki: new Curse location
If you are the bureaucrat or primary administrator of any other language Witcher wikis and would like to join us at Curse, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get the process going.
See you soon!

Innovations and changes without talking to us authors or asking us. ›››
I cannot say that Curse has no ads, but you can use an ad blocker. I can tell you that they do not hijack the entire wiki skin for ads though, as Wikia sometimes does.
Petra_Silie said:Deleting of pictures without further reason than 'offence of GTC'. There wasn't even a contact possibility to ask for reasons. ›››
That was the last straw for me

Petra_Silie said:What happens to the original amount of content that remains at Wikia? ›››
Sadly, the content that was at Wikia stays at Wikia. There's nothing we can do about that. But we don't have to contribute to it (I know I certainly can't, even if i wanted to, which of course i do not).
Petra_Silie said:If the true Witcher authors continue their work on the Curse wikis, all kind of trolls can meddle in the Witcher wikis at Wikia and spoil everything. So there will be two kind of Witcher wikis: one which gets neglected at Wikia and one which grows at Curse aka one "right" and one "false" wiki. ›››
There is every likelihood that this will happen. For one thing, Wikia will either assign some of its staff to try to maintain the wiki while they try to find new admins and contributors or people who didn't like how it was before could jump in and make it their own. I can assure you that Wikia has no Witcher experts on their staff though, and in fact, not that many good wiki editors. They hire people who work for cheap and are willing to follow orders, not people with actual wiki skills.
Petra_Silie said:How do people gain the knowledge where the "right" wiki has gone, in particular new visitors of the Witcher wikis? ›››
Right here! CD Projekt has endorsed the move to Curse and their sites link to Curse. This is also the main site for the latest Witcher information.
Petra_Silie said:When these people google for a Witcher Wiki or any kind of information they will probably get results for the Witcher wiki at Wikia which actually becomes more and abandoned. New visitors may then think: omg, what's that? It's useless and crap. ›››
It's true that for now and for the next little while, Wikia will still win the google "war", but as we continue to improve the Curse wikis, their ranking will fall and ours will rise. I'm already seeing the English (Curse) wiki rising in searches (just this morning, i looked up Witcher Steam Achievements and the Curse wiki was #3 ... not yet #1, but moving up quickly)
Petra_Silie said:And somewhere on page number *don't know / far behind* of the google results snoozes the Curse wiki but no one knows. ›››
Again, that's up to us ... as we continue to contribute to the wikis at Curse, the Wikia wikis will indeed fall into a state of neglect (and likely be polluted with such features as Wikia's "Top Ten Lists", unwanted extra buttons and the rest)
No wiki farm is perfect ... if i was rich I'd host all the Witcher wikis myself with no ads, but sadly, i am not rich. The Curse wiki farm is less intrusive than Wikia and aware of the games' (and books') mature content.
I dearly wish i could just move the wikis wholesale, leaving nothing at Wikia, but even if we deleted every single document, Wikia would just restore them all from backup .. and they would, just to be spiteful, which is what they are right now.
I hope that answers your questions and eases your concerns.

I made an edit to my profile (I thought may be it monitors for updates as kind of validation) - but it didn't help. No idea what it means. ›››
Re: Reclaiming accounts
Having a Curse.com account is helpful, but when you try to reclaim your Wikia account, make sure you are logged out from Curse.com
Also, when you get the code, it must be pasted into the Edit Summary when you edit your profile at Wikia, that's the tiny box at the top of the screen on the right hand side when you are in edit mode, not the main body of your profile.
I hope that clears things up.
