Why we switched from FANDOM to the Galaxypedia

The Galaxy Wiki, started by seanmorabito, was the previous wiki for Galaxy. However this Wiki was abandoned in favour of the Galaxypedia. But why did we do this? To answer that question we first have look at the points made below.

  • Fandom uses ads, and its pretty annoying. The Galaxypedia is funded through donations and we don't use ads at all. This can speed up page loading and you wouldn't have to turn on your ad-blocker which will also improve page loading times.
  • fandom has rules on how we can customize it, for example we cant edit the navigation and stuff. with the Galaxypedia we can do whatever the hell we want with it, its our site so our rules.
  • expanding on the point above, because we own the website we can enforce our own rules. we have our own terms of service, privacy policy, copyright policy, etc. instead of being forced to also moderate rules that fandom enforces, we can simply focus on our own rules.
  • FANDOM's servers are unreliable. The Galaxypedia uses cloudflare caching and internal caching. What this means is that if our server ever goes down, cloudflares servers simply send a cached version to you so you can continue viewing the Galaxypedia while we're fixing the servers.
  • We are able to edit the backend of the Galaxypedia which allows us to directly edit the database, styles, fonts, etc. what this means is that we're able to once again, edit everything and how the Galaxypedia works whereas with fandom we can only edit what they let us edit.

With all of that into consideration, the Galaxypedia has numerous advantages than FANDOM. And because of that the Wiki Staff for the Galaxy Wiki abandoned it and created the Galaxypedia. The old Wiki Staff are now known as the Galaxypedia staff and help to make the Galaxypedia better than the Galaxy Wiki.
