Hi, guys! I have a special announcement.... Seeing how the other wikia went down inspired me to do something about it. So we, me and the other staff/members, decided to create our own "special place". I would feel really happy if YOU guys contibuted! :)

It will def be a "community" effort. (I hope you join Otherworld, I think you have a lot to offer! Especially, about SH2.)

Here is the link: http://silenthillfan.wikia.com/wiki/Silenthillfan_Wikia

It's brand spanking new, so we do not have much up yet.

How do you mean the other wiki went down? Or do you mean that the content is not that good of quality? The site otherwise works well.

I am humbled by your request. I understand you'd like me to post something about Silent Hill 2. Is there anything in particular you'd like me to touch upon in that post or just add my thoughts in general ?

The quality and credibility of the old wikia has taken a turn for the worst.

(This "conspiracy" has also affected the entire wikia with a lot of articles being updated with it. The wikia is simply unreliable at this point.)

@Otherworld, you can post theories and such on your page or put them under a theories section, as long as they are sourced. (The sources could be used to come back here for example.) But you have a lot of valuable knowledge of SH2 in general I think, and could be a valuable resource to the wikia. If you feel like it.

Wow, that's a shame. I used to love going on the old Silent Hill Wiki.
Unfortunately, I have nothing to offer, but good luck with this! :)

I'll go ahead and post some theories I have posted in this community on the page and go from there. Good ?

It's okay. They changed a lot since I stopped editing wikis and everything is new to me too.

Yeah... It gets worse here. That's the reason I was like, yeah, nope. People need a real SH wiki.

Having some issues trying to create a sub category and/or posting a new page ..... I had another addition done and ready to save and the save button was greyed out and I don't know why .......

Funny as the videos I linked show up but not the actual post itself.....

Sorry .....

Ok I think I got the hang of it :skeptical: :skeptical: I hope.

Have a look when you have a chance.

Also, let me know if there was something that you specifically wanted me to touch on that has not gone up yet on the wiki and I will do my best to post it.

(Returning after long hiatus)
I just got finished reading the whole article mentioned. It's unfortunate when you see things like this happen among varying fandoms. You would think people could learn to differentiate their own political ideals from within a game. Unfortunately it seems this is a struggle for some people. I welcome this new wiki! Hopefully we here can take note from this latest incident.

Welcome back, Arkjoww!

But yeah, I just saw a thing on FB asking that people report him to wikia or something because he is doing this stuff. =/ Dunno what's going on exactly, but the problem here is just the interjecting stuff that is not official/stuff that is one's own views into the Wikia, which is supposed to be objective and based on source material. I hope everything gets resolved somehow though.

As for wiki editing, yeah, it's more user-friendly now. I haven't had much time recently but I will look at things when I get a chance.

I first saw it detailed here http://www.relyonhorror.com/latest-news/circumcision-is-tearing-apart-the-silent-hill-wikia-maybe-avoid-it-for-now/

It's a pretty messy situation over there and a shame that it had to happen. The SH wiki has always had a questionable reputation, but this is really unfortunate :(

I really love to visit the old Silent Hill wikia but one day i see in the Walter Sullivan article something about mutilating baby penises and now i see this Bloddy Disgusting article.

Alex lost his mind...

Aside from a few small incidents (including the group that shall not be named and this), I feel we are a really tight knit group of fans. So when things do happen, its unfortunate that they disrupt the peace. Let's just stay awesome over here.

I'll be sure to try and help on the new wiki where I feel I can. I don't think I am quite as knowledgeable as some of our more senior members, but we will see.

I have updated my page again. Adding to my theories.

I am just wondering if there is anything that you'd like to see that I have not touched on yet Purramid_Head.

Let me know.
