@The.Prettiest.Prettyboy Since the image dump is very large, I was wondering if you had any estimates about how many users you would have contributing to your wiki?

Well, not really, but optimally I would have most or all of the users on the Fandom version on the Miraheze version, as I think Miraheze is a much better and less bloated site than Fandom is. I plan on telling the Fandom site's community of the import when it's complete.

The thing with some of them is that while they're not maintained the code is very easy and not in a great need of maintaining. Though since FancyBoxThumbs is completely archived, I don't think it's a great idea to keep that one at least.

It's different every time the page is refreshed.

@Rob_Kam I believe that is because the random hash is a unique value that corresponds with the full error in the MediaWiki error logs above that @Reception123 posted. In short, it's like a numerical "bookmark" for system administrators to easily locate the full error.
