A while ago I applied for a WIKIA wiki. The aim was to put up an ambisonics wiki so that the community could document anything they wanted to, and also share it with the world.
Its now almost 4 months since I applied for this wikia wiki, I still dont have it, and I’m utterly confused. I also have the impression that no one is there, at Wikia.
ambisonics.wikia.com is the wikia I applied for. You’ll notice that Wikia space doesn’t exist.
So now go to the wikia request form where you first have to check if a Wikia space exists. In the form, type ‘ambisonics’ and hit continue.
Now you get a message saying that the Wikia already exists! And you are urged to go visit it…. the url is: http://www.wikia.com/wiki/c:Ambisonics. But go to thet URL and guess what?… you get a page saying that this URL does not exist.
hmmm… anybody there?
Then last week I get an email saying that my ambisonics Wiki on openserving is ready to go. Openserving? … who is that? I only applied for a Wiki space on Wikia, not Openserving. On the bottom of the above link page, there’s a link saying ‘About Wikia, Inc. Ok, so, Wikia and Openserving are related.
Then I spent about half an hour trying to create a page on the Openserving wiki… and gave up in frustration.
I emailed the Openserving people (replying to the email they sent to me to announce that my space was open)… and they still havn’t answered my email in a week.
So when I hear news like ‘Jeremie Miller, the designer of Jabber is joining Wikia I’m not sure what to think…
