Why take all the hard work the editors have put into their articles on the unofficial wiki and duplicate them on another site, creating TWO copies, both of which may be updated with different information.
This is completely pointless. And as someone who has contributed a lot to the existing wiki, I don't care if it's official or not, but any site I find copying articles I've contributed to (and certainly the ones I wrote from scratch) will suffer all the wrath and abuse I can bring to it. An official wiki should not be used to duplicate the existing unofficial wiki (and I don't believe this is the intent of the developers who want one). It should be used to provide additional documentation on top of that provided by the existing wiki. AllenJB
