I don't see anything on that link either. Looks like "Blank page for a new empty wikia #2341" to me.

What's the problem with UFOPaedia.org? It already hosts the OXC subwiki and you can simply add a a section called 'mods'. It isn't as easy to use as wikia, but has zero ads and self-promotion links.
Indeed, I think UFOPaedia.org is a much nicer website, personally and if you think it would be ok to take the space for XPiratez, that'd be lovely!

As far as I'm concerned, it's a big tipi, as long as it is XCOM/XCom/Xcom/X-COM/X-Com related everything can go there. There's even one obscure and mostly hidden section called The X-COM Files.

I have also considered before to make pages for the Terrain Pack and Redux on the UFOPaedia but haven't had the time or need so far.

I certainly don't mind doing this on https://ufopaedia.org if you think it's a better idea. Migration shouldn't be hard, as there's only 53 articles as of now (which I don't know why you can't see). But who will set it up? :)

(BTW: If The X-Com Files is taken, I think I'll need a new mod title.)

There's already a page for mods: https://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php?title=Mods_(OpenXcom)

You can simply add a section called 'User Mods' or something and then place links, either to the mod portal or to other pages on the wiki. Since Piratez is should a large mod, you can consider adapting the UFO table: https://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php?title=EU_Table

You can use that name for anything, I stopped working on the X-COM Files a long time ago and I doubt anyone else except me knows those pages exist :)

Are you sure it's the correct one?
It should be here.

Yeah it's empty. Probably you forgot to publish your articles or something :)

Actually, there are articles, but nothing on the front page.  If you chose "random page" you can see some of the pages.

Oh good, it's just like for me. But it should say there's 53 articles, not 0 articles.

Well anyway, does https://ufopaedia.org follow the wiki format? I'm still thinking if we should do it there. Frankly, this wikia feels more comfortable, since it can be only ours, while https://ufopaedia.org feels like a very solemn building where it's forbidden to play. :)
I'll think about it tomorrow, since it's getting really late.

Thanks, I'll see what I can do with them. Though producing such pics is generally easy. If only there was a logo or something, to be put on the main page... Hmm, Ivan, maybe you could cook something from the pic that you've used for the let's play?

I've always wanted a slightly different icon for Piratez, where the sectoid head wears a pirate hat and an eye patch. The crossed bones are already perfect, of course.

Hmm... how big of an image are you looking for... and a narrow top banner, or something more in line with a square banner like Arthanor mentioned?

I'd say a square one for now, before I figure out how to beautify the wiki's general template.

Still going for the Wikia site, or Ufopedia?
