Uncyclopedia has left Wikia.

The new home is en.uncyclopedia.co. Press release with reasons, old site move thread, new site move thread. I need to go through and copy all my old UnNews to NewsTechnica too.

    Can you correct the “new site move thread” link?

    Feel free to treat the stuff we co-wrote as entirely yours.

    As much as I respect Wikia (yes, really), they are far too advertisement- as opposed to information-orientated these days. Oh, and the fantastic News Technica is criminally underpopulated of late [:(], but the UnNews stuff will no doubt breathe new life to it. :)

    Rock on.

    Yeah, I stopped writing NewsTechnica because it basically had very few readers for the amount of work, and I couldn’t quite get the knack of writing pieces that really had legs (with exceptions, like the BitCoin piece). I did finally get money from ContextWeb, though! $50 for about a year and a half of ads! Almost all of which are PSAs hence $0 – they seem to sorta lack inventory in the UK. So now NT is strictly as I feel inspired. Bumsex.

    Wikia is lovely for what it is, and Uncyclopedia still loves Sannse, but “it’s not me, it’s you” is still about right.

    I do worry the new team have underestimated costs and overestimated funding – hosting a moderately popular MediaWiki is not so cheap. There’s a reason Wikia has all those ads. But we shall see.
