Looks like Vim Tips wiki is moving

Benjamin Fritz
Wikia has a banner announcement on the Vim wiki pages that they're moving us to a new domain name:


I assume it will be "vim.fandom.com" but haven't seen that stated explicitly anywhere yet.

The Vim wiki is now at https://vim.fandom.com

I have been talking with Wikia support for a couple of days. There is a review (at my request) that the Vim wiki be moved to vim.wikia.org (it used to be at vim.wikia.com). If that happens, incoming requests to pages at vim.fandom.com would redirect to vim.wikia.org.

On the plus side, the new sites (fandom.com and wikia.org) use https (the old site was http).

Incoming links to the now defunct vim.wikia.com are redirected to vim.fandom.com (or vim.wikia.org if we end up there).

Other than marketing spiel, there is no information about why all this turmoil is occurring or what use will be made of the wikia.com URL in the future. I gather that the great majority of successful Wikia sites (those with activity and lots of readers) concern topics where "fandom" is appropriate.
