Hi! I'm Niklas, developer of the Translate extension that UserBase uses.

Definitely agree.

To me it would seem waste of resources not to join with the UserBase,
which already has everything set up, can handle the spam and most
importantly: it has translators to help you and it needs more
translators which could come via your way.

Setting up MediaWiki is not a rocket science, but setting it up well
is not easy either and spam is a problem.

These are my own opinions only, since I don't manage KDE servers.
