Hey there.

I was browsing through another wiki called the Lexicanum and rather then having their forum on wiki itself,they have their forum on a separate site,obviously they link to it. They cite their reasons for this as improving communications between the wiki users. Could something like this be done this wiki,would it even work?

I don't really see how going to a completely different website boosts communications but I'll take you're word for it.

I like the forum here. The main reason why people don't communicate much via KHWikia Forum is probably because we've got other ways of communicating include our IRC Channel and our Talk Pages.

Putting our Forum on another site is pointless and silly in my opinion. If you want us to think about moving our forum into KHInsider then that's Ridiculous! Our forum isn't for 'socializing or making friends (even though I don't see why not) it's basically used for answering to Improve the Wiki, Gain Individual Opinions or Want Help.

Moving the Forum is unneccessary, I like it the way it is, the Forum is as much as part of the Wiki as the Rest of the Wiki, so why not put in on the actual website?

It's a good idea but "things are good the way they are".

What do the rest of you think?

First of all, calling the idea pointless and silly with italics and all was a bit rude and quite unnecessary. Secondly, other wikis may find moving the forums to an external page as a solution, take the FF wiki as an example: they complain a lot about activity in the forums being focused on pointless conversations and/or arguments that add nothing to the wiki, moving the forums to a completely different page might be a good idea for them.

The KH wiki's forums are used mostly to improve the wiki. In the different topics there are examples of what we'd like to implement in the wiki itself, therefore many topics use wiki coding that would be quite hard to use and explain in an external forum. As for the other part of the forum, the one which is meant to act as a gathering place for KH fans to discuss the game... well that one isn't used much, so there really isn't a need to move it to an external place. As MN pointed, we have the IRC were most of the chatting and (sometimes) KH talking happens.

Maybe if the wiki grows and the forums get more attention it would be good to move them, but for now I think they're fine. ^^

Sorry it came out wrong and Ironically you're right I myself was writing Silly and Pointless.

I agree with Yermom. For now we're fine, but for the future, let's see?
