Request wiki domain swap
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Hello. I currently own two domains:

https://creepypasta.miraheze.org

https://horrorstories.miraheze.org

If possible, I'd like to reasign the top domain, creepypasta.miraheze.org, to the site currently using the bottom "horrorstories" domain, while forfeiting ownership of the latter or letting it expire.

I realize I could request a dump for the horrorstories site instead and reupload it to the creepypasta domain, but this would be troublesome and less convenient, however I'm willing to do it if my preferred option of just switching then URLs is not feasible.

Thanks.

@HopelessNightOwl If I'm understanding you correctly, Are you saying that you want the existing horrorstories.miraheze.org wiki to be deleted, then move creepypasta.miraheze.org to horrorstories.miraheze.org? In this scenario, creepypastawiki would become horrorstorieswiki, and creepypasta.miraheze.org would be no longer exist and become available. This would be much easier and simpler than generating dumps, deleting, and recreating wikis, if possible.

Other way around. Delete current creepypasta.miraheze.org, move horrorstories.miraheze.org to creepypasta.miraheze.org, and release horrorstories.miraheze.org for availability

Ah, okay, thanks for clarifying! That should be fairly easily doable then. :)

Sorry for asking again, but I do want to make extra sure so I don't get something wrong.

  • creepypastawiki is deleted
  • horrorstorieswiki is renamed to creepypastawiki
  • horrorstorieswiki is now available to be requested

Is this correct?

The site logo is no longer showing up for me for some reason.

Nevermind, the fix has been indicated to me.
