It's always bothered me that the "official" wiki is at en.bitcoin.it.

Can we move it to wiki.bitcoin.org?

Who owns bitcoin.org?
Who owns bitcoin.it?

Could we get them to agree to this?

This forum started out under bitcoin.org.  My username here actually reflects that ('TV BitCoinOrg Forum'.)  I think that it was thought that this forum was such a cesspool that it reflected poorly on the Bitcoin project by the owners of the domain.  Seemed rational to me.

Censorship of unpopular thoughts and styles seems to be rearing it's head here more and more lately which has sparked my interest in seeing what other options are kicking around.  There is some other forum where the intellectual elites gather I think, but I was to lazy to bother.  Plus, I'm sure I'd last about 5 minutes even if they did admit me to their hallowed chambers since I have difficulty minding my P's and Q's.

EDIT:  Opps...forum -ne wiki.  Sorry.  But why ask agree here?  This forum is already a blacksheep (with some justification) vis-a-vis the Bitcoin project.

I can try to answer two of the questions:

Who owns bitcoin.it?

Code:

I think consolidating everything under one domain is dangerous and against the decentralized nature of the Bitcoin project.

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?

On that note, does each of these sites have a .bit domain set up, or at least other alternate failover domains?

bitcoin.it sounds clunky, it's the first .it website I ever surfed to.

... although perhaps it's indeed a good idea to not only have them as separate domains, but under the control of separate countries as well. Oh well.

+1 for a .bit backup
