Note: You may have to access the full blog for the link to the new wiki
As promised a year ago, I have set up a new wiki for the 1971 movie.
I know I had put it off for a long time, and I truly apologize for that, but after my last blog post - which I had now since deleted - I did some time to reflect and decided that I should just go ahead and make it anyways.
I will start trying to move over articles to the other wiki, however it's currently in a very basic state right now, so I hope other people can help contribute to make it better.
In a poll I have set up regarding the fate of the 1971 information on this wiki, it has been determined to create a new wiki dedicated to that adaptation, with 25 voting for a new wiki as opposed to 15 keeping it.
However, obviously I haven't done that yet, since I'm very, very busy with my life. As a result, the new wiki may have to hold of for an indeterminate amount of time.
I appreciate the work people have been doing on this wiki, and I encourage others and newcomers to help as well.
So it's been more than a week since I received bureaucratic rights on this wiki. I've already done massive amounts of work remodeling the wiki. and so I may take a brief break, as I do have many priorities.
The issue I'm tackling next is whether to allow the wiki to focus on one movie or the other. Just yesterday a user added many pages for the 1971 film, and while I am grateful of that, I still strongly believe this wiki was originally supposed to centralize on the 2005 film instead. If that's the case, then the 1971 film should not be on this wiki, and instead should be moved to a sister wiki that I may create in the future.
At the same time, however, this is the only Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Wiki on this site, at least…
First of all, thanks for JoePlay for giving me admin and bureaucrat roles on this wiki, it will not be abused!
Second, I have followed this wiki for quite some time now, and I believe that most, if not all, the pages on here are either poorly written or plagiarized from other sources. Most of the plagiarism on this wiki are from unknown users, so I have decided to disable access for IP addresses in order to combat vandalism. At the same time, I will do my best in revising and updating this wiki.
Finally, I have realized that the majority of the articles on here are heavily directed towards the 2005 film, with the wiki URL even containing the word "film." As such, I believe it is best to leave this wiki for the 2005 film solely. In the near f…
Well it seems like the creator of this wiki hasn't been active in nearly a decade. Since this wiki needs some cleanup, I believe I can take an administration role, or even adopt the wiki as my own, as I have continually come back to this wiki to make edits and improve pages. If you have any opposition or support, please comment below.
