It's true the wiki is a better encyclopaedic source of arcane knowledge, however the forum is the Aurora community and drives development, not just of our own games but also Steve's development of the game receives valuable insight from us, Aurora wouldn't exist as it is without the community, hell im sure we give Steve valuable support for all the hard work he does which in a way helps drive the Aurora train forwards.
The wiki however is just a large pile of facts, nice to have but not essential.
In fact even after hours pouring through the wiki looking for information I still overlook things that are pointed out quickly in discourse here. In no way do I deny that the wiki is an awesome resource for new players, but my point stands that the performance problems it gave the forum was terrible for the community. Though maybe without 10,000 people downloading Autora from the host we might survive the wiki being turned back on? Perhaps an argument could be made for migrating the wiki to that evil den of invasive advertising and poorly formatted incomplete lists of facts that is wikia.
