Overhauling the FoE Wiki

Here, I'll be talking about how 2019's been for the Forge of Empires Wiki (from my perspective).

The first quarter of 2019 recorded an abysmal activity rate from my side. Indeed, one contribution in 3 months, and that too being a simple reply to a post on my message wall. My work is partly to blame for this, as I got a backlog of cases which I had to deal with.

A Shift of Roles

Most of you know me by now. A question that must have surely popped up in more than one mind would be that why has my time on the wiki reduced? It seems disproportionately less nowadays compared to what I used to do earlier. I've written about it, as well as my history and the circumstances which led me to taking a decision, below. If you're rather in a hurry, you might skip to the 2nd from the bottom paragraph.

I also remember that I'm the last surviving member on the team who was appointed by Auctorius, and as such, it would not be fair to let his legacy die down. I fondly recall that day on 4th March 2017, when I became Administrator. I remember messaging him pledging my 'alleigance' to the wiki, though he has already left. From then on,…
