We've had the broken Memory Alpha-links fixed directly on the database. Thank you, @Shog9 and @Catija.

Can we do the same for all Wikia links, since wikia.com has moved to fandom.com? There's a redirect in place currently, but we don't know for how long. There are far too many links to Wikia to edit them all by hand.

Can we request an update directly on the db to fix these?

And if so, can we make change http to https for these links where necessary?

    Might have to find someone else to do the change this time...

    As was mentioned on the linked post apparently some moved to wikia.org not fandom.com. Also if they’re updating from wikia to fandom in the db directly I don’t think it’d be a problem to do the https change either.

  • This SEDE query is by no means efficient or foolproof but it turns up approximately 700 unique wikia links with the most popular, starwars.wikia.com, being used 9083 times.

  • While they’re at it, there should also be HTTP → HTTPS. Jan 19 '20 at 3:58
  • @Stormblessed that's a bit trickier, because not all sites work with https. We know the Fandom sites do, and I've added that to my request, but we can't do a blanket conversion, since ISFDb doesn't even work with https (yeah, I know it's 2020).

  • @SQB what I was saying is that if they are doing Wikia -> Fandom, they should do HTTP://{site}.wikia.com to HTTPS://{site}.fandom.com ; the RegEx for that wouldn't be super hard. Jan 19 '20 at 14:55

    @Stormblessed oh, absolutely. It's the final line of my request.
