Comments: Google effects as Digital Sharecroppers leave Wikia's Electronic Plantation

Thanks for the support and the coverage. We're pushing hard to make this grand experiment work... if it can work for us, it can work for others.

(Want some fun? We're being accused of vandalising the old wiki by the handler thrown in to try and keep the place from completely falling apart without the presence of the old community! Hahahah! What's especially amusing is we don't HAVE to, as the old wiki is falling apart quite nicely on its own as the Wikipidedia-style "non-notability, non-confrontation, non-print-news-source, non-entertainment" crowd basically turns the place into a dessicated shell, on top of the usual pack of anon vandals that plagued us when we WERE keeping vigilant watch on the place.)

Greg: You're welcome. I'm hoping it works, and Google hasn't build a moat which keeps people effectively prisoner.

tqft: I've seen that idea before, but the problem is usually maintaining interest of the people running the site.
