UPDATE! One of the organizers responded with this:

"Hey Ben,

Myself as well as Gavin Higginbotham (Savage Dragon editor) and Erik Larsen (Savage Dragon creator) serve as admins of this wiki. We are looking at options to keep it going. Because of it's long history and the hundreds of characters Erik has created, not only do readers find it useful, it also helps Erik and his team (his editor and colorists) keep track of the characters and their designs. We'd be open to merging with you guys but would need more info on how it would be handled. Would we be able to keep all of the information that we have? Is there enough storage space available for all of our images? Would you assist us in getting everything over? Would you be able to make the three of us administrators?

-Craig"

So here's what I'm about to respond with:

"Dear Craig,

Thanks for getting back to me. I completely agree that the content on this site should be preserved and continue to be updated. As a recent reader of Savage Dragon myself, this site has been extremely useful to me personally, and if it's useful to Mr. Larsen and his team then that's reason enough to keep this site active.

Because the Image wiki does have some Savage Dragon material already, and if we were to merge, things might get the teensiest bit complicated. Our sites differ. I can't completely get rid of the writing on my site, because for instance that in particular was written by the Image wiki's founder, and I might get flak for deleting it. At the same time though, we really want to merge with you guys, so I'll talk with the other administrators and figure out how to keep your content. If we ultimately have to get rid of our own content to do so, then I'll indeed take the flak for that.

As for your other questions: on a wiki such as ours, storage space is hardly an issue. We'll be able to handle all of the pages and images you can throw at us. And of course, I will assist in getting everything over, and even do most of the work myself if I have to. Finally, there's only one user on the Image wiki who can currently make people administrators, but he'll probably be okay with it.

If you have any more questions, I'll try to answer as soon as I can! I hope you continue to consider a merger with us. Thanks!
- Ben"

Highlight #1: I didn't know that two of the organizers are a Savage Dragon editor and frickin Erik Larsen himself, and I sent both of them my original message, plus a little tidbit to Mr. Larsen to what I thought was just his username. HELP!

Highlight #2: They're open to merging! Thoughts? With the Invincible wiki, it's my understanding that we deleted most of their info for the most part; it wasn't handled in the best way. I want this to be handled in a great way. We had more Invincible material, this time they have more Savage Dragon material. Anyway, can we do it? I know I'm an admin but I'm still hesitant to go through with this without your approval at least.

Highlight #3: I'd do most of it myself as I told you, maybe with DeCast or Brian if he comes back, or if Craig wants to help. But could/would you make them admins? I mean, two of them actually worked at Image. Don't know about Craig, but it'd be fine, right? None of them would cause trouble, and probably only edit Savage Dragon things anyway which we need done.

PLEASEPLEASEPLEASE answer me soon, as I'm about to send the reply to Craig. Also the Invincible rehaul might be delayed if we do this, and if I get more college work. But seriously, please get back to me ASAP! This would be MAJOR for the wiki!
