Inter-wiki links like this one:

Code:
[[wikia:c:bootleggames:American Video Entertainment|American Video Entertainment]]


at https://wiki.nesdev.com/w/index.php/NINA-003-006

Are broken since Wikia is re-branding itself

So yeah, just a heads up I guess you need to update a DB record.

Previous discussion of Wikia rebrand in the context of the wiki on my own website: User talk:Tepples#Wikia's redirection script no longer works

My solution was to create a redirection script for the wikia:c: links and update the mapping for wikia prefix to point at https://pineight.com/wikia.php?page=$1. This script currently handles removing the c: if needed and pointing to the correct subdomain of wikia.com. In the future, it may also use the subdomain to determine whether to redirect to fandom.com, wikia.com, or wikia.org. It is unfortunate that the Interwiki extension is not installed, as if it were, a wiki administrator could use Special:Interwiki to make the changes without a server operator having to connect directly to MySQL. But as it is now, without the extension, "Special:Interwiki" on NESdev is a broken link.
