What will happen to this wiki and the server?

Alright, so now that community feeds are starting to become a thing as a replacement for discussions. Discussions is said to be only over there, and not separately. Will this mean that this wiki and the server will be down?

Not really - see https://fortnite.wikia.com/d


https://fortnite.wikia.com

In any case, it honestly looks like a fancy redesign of the Discussions homepage. Wiki main page? No:

- It clearly places Discussions over wiki content

- it's got a nicer level of visual customisation, but content is not customisable enough

- Discussions content may not be well patrolled on some wikis, so a general feed is clearly inappropriate at front-and-centre of the community

- I find the rail module very interesting (familiar too) and it is an interesting idea. I am fine with it being mostly /d content, but I think it should also pull from the popular pages list


My honest guess is that these two products are playing chicken on which one will get merged into the other first. But I would put my money on Feeds getting merged into Discussions. Or reaching production when it actually reflects the community. But look at how it's grown. It'll peobably be done much sooner. Discussions has and probably will be in development for a long time.

Sidenote that it also looks good in mobile web, and has come a long way since the prototype visually. :)

The real question is whether we keep this wiki about /d only, or the rest of feeds features, too?

I think a page for Community Feeds would be appropriate. I'll try post a draft in the sandbox today
