Hi Nonbinary-androids. Following on that, I wanted to reach out and see if you are interested in making this merge happen. Fandom can help, we'd assign a Wiki Manager (with wiki merger experience) to advise throughout the process and make suggestions. We can also offer technical help. For example, mass migration of images if it's determined that images from the one wiki should come over to the other.
In this vision, the end result would be one community that covers the musical as well as the 2005 film — a single destination on Fandom for all things RENT. Let us know what you think! At this time we're just looking to get the conversation started. There will be many small details to work out and questions to answer along the way, please feel free to ask any that come up for you right now. Thanks.
I would be happy to merge with the other RENT wiki! I definitely would appreciate a Wiki Manager for such a thing- I don't think there's a ton of stuff on here that would need to be transfered, but I have a feeling that a lot of the code on these two wikis are pretty outdated and incompatible, and I'm a fairly new admin without a lot of coding experience.
Never Forget- it's nice to see you again! I saw on the thread that you were looking for adminship, and I totally agree. In fact, I was debating giving you at least a modship when you stopped editing on here. If we did merge, I'd be happy to give you bureaocrat & admin status, although I'd like to keep my own. (I do acknowledge however that I'm not longer able to be as active as I'd like anymore; my health problems have been rearing their head and therefore I can't spend so much time on the computer.)
TLDR: I'd be happy to do the merger and make Never Forget an admin on the new combined wiki.
Hope to speak with you more about this soon!
Hey nonbinary-androids, nice to see ya again too! Sorry for the abrupt stop, kinda got sidetracked. Thanks for the support! Also, sending good vibes for your health. Hopefully things get well soon.
For the merge, I think that most of the wiki I was on's stuff can be deleted. I've gotta say, I did make a few....not so smart choices, including trying to recreate a locked forums without admin status (although I'm really happy to see that they're still working here) and I think your stuff is a lot more sound. I do think that the front page on mine looked a bit better though. Is there a way we can use that?
Also, for androids, on the wiki I was editing, they'd included stuff that inspired Rent, such as La Boheme. Do you want stuff like that here or just keep it focused on the RENT label? Thanks!
So glad to see that you are both on board with this idea! The merge should be able to retain the best parts of both wikis, regardless of which wiki serves as the "destination" for content from the other.
I will have a Wiki Manager follow up soon!
Also, as a (rather lapsed) fan, I think that there should definitely be an article about La Bohème since it's the basis for the story. Articles on characters, ideas and settings can note how they relate to that source material.
Hi there, Never Forget and Nonbinary-androids! I'm Kylara, a Wiki Manager, and BertH has asked me to help with getting the two Rent Wikis merged. I'll be doing an assessment to find the best path forward, and to see which duplicate pages and images need to be combined or just replaced, and which non-duplicate pages can just be imported. This may include getting the templates and categories compatible before moving content.
My general goal is to get all content combined or imported so no content is lost. Do either of you have any preferences or questions regarding the process or the content?
Hi KylaraE, thanks for stopping by! For now, we're waiting for Nonbinary-android's verdict on if they'd want the influences of RENT, like La Boheme, on the wiki or not. (They have health problems, so let's give them the time they need).
