I think you would be doing *all* of this on your own initially. Once
you moved created enough momentum showing the new wiki was better than
the old wiki, you will attract followers. Over time, the new wiki
would naturally replace the old.

For me, when I'm really concerned about getting credit for my writing,
I post to my blog.

I'm going to continue contributing to the old wiki, signing my name
where I want to leave attribution. But, if something better comes
along, I'll happily contribute there.
