Hello, earlier today I was looking through the old forum posts and blogs about Brickimedia and realized that it was a very good idea and that it was a shame it was hacked. I believe that if it had not been hacked we would still be there and that /most/ of the community would have moved. Then, I found out that Brickimedia was currently in Open beta and that I could <span class="plainlinks">[meta.brickimedia.org/wiki/Special:UserLogin/signup make]</span> an account, so I did. I then discovered how good it looked, the blogs were great (we have the ability the give blog comments kudos, as known as likes), the chat is good (yes, not ''exactly'' like the chat here, however, HTML use in chat is pretty great!), also we will still have forums. Please review the See Also and the Pros and Cons sections.
Pros and Cons
*Ability to keep ''all'' features he have here
*Choosing our own ads - Choosing our own ads are a great function as when you are logged out of wikia, as many of our readers are since they are under 13, it looks horrid, huge ads everywhere and video ads that auto-play.
*More customizable than Wikia - We will be able to customize our skin much more than we can with Oasis and add more functions
*Ability to use JS that would violate Wikia's TOU - Such as Jammers
*All the same user rights as this wiki with the ability to customize them and create more if needed
*A better badge system that promotes good editing habits
*Extensions - We can add MediaWiki extensions if we please
*No Darwin - I know many of you hate Wikia's new Project "Darwin" coming [[w:c:community:User blog:BertH/Fluid layout is arriving on December 4|December 4<sup>th</sup>]]. If we move to Brickimedia we will be able to chose if we want something instead of it being forced on us
*Losing our current skin - Our current skin on Wikia, Oasis will be lost. However, this could possibly be a Pro as, (I have mentioned earlier), it has many limitations
*No [[w:c:community:VSTF|VSTF]] - Not a problem as Brickimedia will have their own "Janitors" that are elected by the Community
*No Wikia Tech Support - Not a problem, Brickimedia has their own skilled admins such as ToaMeiko.
A for yes
B for hell yes
