Motivation[edit]

This property seems like a reasonable way to complete the set between Gamepedia article ID (P6623), Fandom Wikia article ID (P6262) and Fandom wiki ID (P4073). It's kinda surprising it was forgotten given the differences in coverage that may exist. Circeus (talk) 19:44, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

EDIT: I just found out that Fandom has acquired Gamepedia's parent company back in december and has a plan for merging the wikis. However, it seems clear (as test merges were performed in both direction) that Gamepedia and Fandom will remain separate at least for the time being. This may, however, impact the longer-term validity of both Fandom- and Gamepedia-related IDs.
