Forums: Index The Impala Forums to be replaced by Fandom: Preserving Past Consensus

As stated here: link. Forums are to be replaced with everything on them to be lost. Preparations have to be made to preserve past consensus, between a recently chaotic real life, work, and just plain for forgetting about it we now need to act fast and that means solutions:

  • Archive past forums in the wiki namespace and use wiki-style forums through the DPL extension. Letting past consensus be lost is not an option and at the very least archiving can and must be done.
  • Use Discussions. I quite frankly hate Discussions and If I could I would purge Fandom of it entirely, but consensus will decide if I get my wish.

Please weigh in and give your opinion. Zane T 69 (talk) 18:49, November 1, 2019 (UTC)

  • Comment: After learning that there was no fixed date that forums would be removed I went ahead and archived the forums on wiki. Supernatural Wiki:Archives. Was it born of panic, yes it was, but I felt that it was either that or wake up and have years of history gone and decided to act early as a precaution. Please let me know if I missed any.

  • I support archiving but I must ask why Zane is against "Discussions". FTWinchester (talk) 02:43, November 15, 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment: Discussions have a laundry list of flaws and are hard for me to navigate and the feature is actually pretty disliked in general from what I've read. Zane T 69 (talk) 03:02, November 15, 2019 (UTC)
  • Closing: This forum was born out of a misunderstanding. It was the thread-based forums were being retired and not wiki-style forums, IE like blank article pages. Still, we have an advantage should Fandom ever retire this style of forum and the forums are already mostly archived. Zane T 69 (talk) 23:16, April 5, 2020 (UTC)
