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...

As you noted, if you use a different host then you have ask yourself whether the same thing is wrong there. The thing that's wrong with Google is capitalism. More people object to Google in particular than capitalism in general, but given time the same issues will likely surface with any service provided from a profit motive

Would you like help with alternatives?


@AceNovo No, thanks. I'm actually fed up with researching & discussing the tech side of hosting my wiki and related ethics.

I just want to get on with the content, which to me is the important part. I've moved to Miraheze, which is open-source and was recommended by someone on here.
