Hi, there are a lot of Wrestling articles being deleted at present.[1] Is there a process for moving articles to this Wikia from Wikipedia? Jayvdb 02:40, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

I'm also very curious about this issue. If there isn't a process, perhaps at least stubs could be created in place of the soon-to-be deleted articles. DanZero 05:07, 29 June 2007 (UTC)
The process of doing this appears to be here: [2]. I'll try it out this evening. Jayvdb 05:31, 29 June 2007 (UTC)
It appears only sysops can use Special:Import. So, I have done a transwiki the manual way. see transwiki:Tony Rumble. Jayvdb 15:26, 29 June 2007 (UTC)
We need a to-do list linked to on the main page - see for a solid main page - along with articles that have been transwiki'd in order to format them properly for here.--DanZero 16:06, 29 June 2007 (UTC)
I have followed the instructions here: [3], which includes recording each transwiki performed at the local page "Transwiki". Jayvdb 16:11, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

When importing is not possible, we can at least copy the latest source code, it's better than nothing. Hopefully they will keep it in history at least rather than an outright delete. History is retained with redirects. +y 22:32, December 20, 2011 (UTC)
