Early history[edit]

George Skywalker requested the creation of Elder Scrolls Fanon on 16 August 2007. The request was accepted by Wikia on 21 August 2007, and George became the wiki's first administrator. Growth of the wiki site remained relatively slow until the August of 2008 when Darth Storm and Michaeldsuarez arrived at the wiki and become administrator. In least than a year, over five hundred articles were created.

Move to YourWiki[edit]

After switching to the Creative Commons Attributions Share-Alike 3.0 license in the June 2009, Michaeldsuarez decided that Tesfanon grew as much as it could under Wikia, so he decided to look for an alternative wiki farm to host them. After closely examining many possible candidates, Michaeldsuarez decided that YourWiki should be Tesfanon's new home. Michaeldsuarez raised the possible for a move in a forum, and the wiki's community unanimously decided to move to YourWiki.

Tesfanon moved to YourWiki on 16 July 2009, but the new wiki site remained closed to non-administrative for about a week for some repairs. On 22 July, the new wiki was opened for edits.

Due to Wikia's policy against closing down abandoned wikis, the old Wikia site remains open to edits. However, the old wiki at Wikia is not maintained any longer.
