Shouldn't it also say next to the Gamepedia logo that the wiki is "NOT AN OFFICIAL WIKI" now to prevent confusion with the logo as standing as a brand of official license? Matthew Cenance (talk) 04:18, 14 October 2021 (UTC)

honestly, I don't really blame them.[]

Fandom really made a mess of things with their so-called "unified community platform". You can put all the lipstick you want on a pig, but Fandom's takeover and subsequent attempt to modernize was anything but helpful. About the only thing I like about it is being able to get notifications more easily.

Of course, I am merely assuming this change was in response to Gamepedia changing hands and the mediocre-to-disastrous result thereof. I could be way off base there!--Twisted Code a.k.a. Macks2010 (Talk) 16:05, 3 December 2021 (UTC)

Indeed, the wiki had already lost its official status long before the Fandom Gamepedia acquisition. I don't remember what prompted it, but something back then gave me a hint that they'd already withdrawn the official status, so I asked Helen Angel in a private channel whether it was true. After checking with her team, she told me it was. Mojang wasn't making any fuss about it at the time, so I decided to keep it to myself. But there were hints that it was coming, such as when Mojang moved their add-on documentation off-site and stopped updating the wiki pages linked to from the Add-on article. I think that was sometime in 2019. — Auldrick (talk · contribs) 18:51, 17 December 2021 (UTC)
