Greetings, wherever you are.
I would like to invite you to come visit the Beano Wiki, a collaborative encyclopedia about The Beano, one of the UK's longest running comics. Founded in 1938, it is still active to this day.
My first visit to this wiki was in 2015, and back then, it was a complete mess: a lot of vandalism, Curious George nonsense, and foul language. I noticed there were other alternative wikis, but I only focused on this one. In 2019 I became admin and cleaned up the site, in the hopes of other users coming in to contribute. However, as time passed, I became plagued by three things:
1. My awkwardness at being the only foreigner who knew about the Beano.
2. My impatience at waiting for other users to come.
3. My belief that I always had to watch over the wiki, taking away most of my time.
Due to these three reasons, this year I decided to resign from my position, as I did not see myself as suitable for the role. But I am also disappointed, as I wish I had done better.
I am here, bringing this matter to your attention, because I want someone to take care of this wiki. Someone who cares about this comic, despite the changes it went through over the years. Someone who, despite many people thinking this comic has "lost its essence", deep down knows that it has simply been modernized for a new generation, for better or worse. And if it changed for the worse, then that someone can invite other users to express their opinion about what they don't like about the new Beano without resorting to toxicity.
I hope the person succeeding me will do a better job than I did.
