March 9, 2019 - the day I left FANDOM/Wikia for good. I have had a very negative overall experience overall with that site because of the following:

  1. Excessive ad spam
  2. The unholy trinity of corrupt, unreliable wikis: NFS, Burnout, and Forza Wikis - if I were you, I'd simply stay away from them, block any links to them with uBlock Origin, and blacklist these websites with a website blocker addon.
  3. FANDOM becoming SJW - the garbage blog posts they were making was one major reason for them going full SJW. And this is one of my two biggest reasons for leaving!
  4. All the other reasons discussed in the FANDOM article on Rotten Websites Wiki

So that means goodbye to Asphalt Wiki and all the other remaining good wikis still left on FANDOM. I will miss TransportFan2014, Audi R8 tyke, Azelfland, etc. And even then, nothing changes the fact that FANDOM has left a loathsome taste in my mouth.

And that means... RIP my FANDOM/Wikia accounts (2012-2019). My adventures on FANDOM/Wikia have officially concluded. Sooner or later, I might as well stop using wikis altogether since I am the type of person who sometimes would rather find things out for myself. FANDOM is now the latest addition to my list of websites to boycott.

EDIT1 (03/10/2019, 22:23 PDT): My Outlook email account has been cleared of all emails that I received from FANDOM/Wikia.

I just hope they will fail so the honest people working there will go find better jobs.

Same here. FANDOM does NOT realize that their end is inevitable and coming even sooner than predicted. I got banned from Asphalt Wiki for real and that's what ultimately led me to permanently boycott ALL of FANDOM/Wikia, even going as far as eliminating access to FANDOM/Wikia on my computer and phone.

After the reception wikis were removed, I closed my account immediately after.
