So it seems that the crossover between 1. people willing to contribute to/share a sustainability wiki and 2. people who object to Google is HUGE.

Which means if I stay on Google Sites I will never reach all the potential contributors. So I'm searching for an ethical wiki host. Someone suggested Wikia but it looks like it's just for fandom stuff?

There's also Wikidot but I know nothing about it.

I'm worried about putting the work in, building up the wiki again on a new platform and then discovering people have a problem with that one too. It's bad enough having to up sticks and lose everything ONCE...

@pass_it_on wikia imo is a terrible option (ads, tracking, etc, too invasive), but i sadly am not aware of any alternatives. it isn't only for fandom stuff, there're quite popular wikis about vim and some other software, for example. when i needed a wiki, i also had access to a linux server, so i hosted it myself (dokuwiki, later moinmoin, the latter is cuter, but painful to maintain).

if selfhosting isn't an option, i'd go with wikia. it's popular and not gonna disappear in one moment.

@leip4Ier I have now moved to Miraheze, which is open-source.

I don't have the tech skills or inclination to host it myself. To me the tech bit is quite unimportant and I'd still be on Google Sites if it wasn't for the backlash on here. I just want to get on with the content bit.
