This is plastered on top of the TF Wiki. Does anyone know WTF is this all about?
Wikia. Aka that shitty ad-heavy site nobody uses anymore.
To further elborate: Wikia is an advertising-financed wiki host. It features wikis on various topics, but due to increasingly intrusive ads, new ad-heavy skins forced upon the individual wikis' staff by the Wikia staff and a bunch of other ashattery, many wikis "left" Wikia or created forks. The first wiki to quit Wikia was the Transformers Wiki.

There's still the remains of the old Transformers Wiki left on Wikia, but it's fairly outdated and mostly edited by trolls, dorks who couldn't get their fanon shit on the "new" Transformers Wiki, and Wikia staff who try to infect it with more and more ads.
Are we at war with the Mass Effect Wiki folks?
-grabs an axe-
Please read my above post. This is not the "relevant" Transformers Wiki. It's the old version on another host left behind that still exists and is filled with intrusive ads, outdated content and "meta" staff that only cares about advertising revenue.

Also, my theory as to what happened there is that some obtrusive meta-Wikia ad template is broken. Again, nothing of importance; TFWiki.net is fine.
TFwiki.net is the real Transformers wiki.
Thanks for the info. *bookmark deleted*
Agreed. That "Other" Wiki is a load of trash.
As Nevermore's explained the situation, and pointed to the real TFWiki, I think this topic's resolved.
