Robotech Wiki Launched

A wiki has been created for Robotech, an American television adaptation of several popular Japanese anime shows, notably Super Dimensional Fortress: Macross.

Robotech is infamous for drastically altering its component series in order to create a cohesive story across three otherwise-unrelated series. Many Macross fans, in particular, see Robotech as a sacrilige and view parent-company Harmony Gold's frequent attempts to prevent the localization of Macross titles (most recently Macross Frontier) outside of Japan.

Ugh. Not another bloody Wikia. How Wikia manages to maintain its image with all the crap they get up to, I have no idea. How any serious fandom can consider locating a wiki on them, I don't know.

Full Disclosure: In addition to being the Site & Community manager of AnimeShinbun, I am the webmaster of Pokémon fansite Bulbagarden, with us having refused buyout offers from Wikia for our Pokémon Wiki the Bulbapedia on a number of occasions, including one only a couple of months ago. I'm also the founder of the Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance, a growing group of independent wikis opposed to Wikia's business practises.

A bit confused here. Never bothered too much about where the db on a particular anime/manga/game was hosted before, but I have found some useful ones on wikia before. What exactly do you mean by the crap they get up to?

To save me repeating myself, here's the manifesto I wrote for NIWA, which should give you a bit of an idea.

Additional information about some of Wikia's practises can be found on the Transformers Wiki, which had a rather public split with Wikia

Whoa, you help operate Bulbapedia? Good show, my friend!
