Robopedia

I am in no way connected to Robopedia, but I found the wiki while browsing Wikia. You may want to approach them regarding a move to independence. They have a good article base and they seem to be fairly active.

Looks like something worth investigating. A quick look revealed a few stubs, but given their 644 page count, it looks like nothing too serious (e.g. they're not using stubs for every other article).

I say we should see if they're interested, but I can understand if they're not.

Yeah, only their names are similar. They have different universes, and I believe their only connection is through Super Smash Bros. Custom Robo is a high-tech fighting game while Chibi-Robo is an adventure game.

Perhaps I should create a new topic for this, but since the discussion involves approaching a Wikia wiki about going independent, I'd like to again suggest Golden Sun Universe as another candidate.

http://goldensun.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page

I'm in no way affiliated with them, but they have over 1,000 articles and only 36 of them are classified (by their definition) as stubs.  They're getting a lot of activity with the release of Golden Sun: Dark Dawn in 12 days, and their community is as big as ever.  I don't know what their thoughts about leaving Wikia are, if any do exist, but I think they would be worth talking to.

We should approach both these wikis about independence. Does anybody want to talk to them about it? I'd rather not have to go to every single Wiki, but I can if nobody else is willing.

We could always get them to move to Wikii temporarily until someone could get a proper domain. From what I've heard, Wikii doesn't keep your content when you leave, unlike Wikia, so there wouldn't be too many problems.

It would seem a little tedious to move twice.  Unless they can't find hosting anywhere, I would suggest moving straight to independence.  Keeping things as simple as possible  ;)

Bah, it isn't tedious enough! They should have to move twenty times! Only those who show such fierce loyalty must be able to join NIWA!!! >:(

I'd host a Golden Sun wiki.

Just saying.
That might be good.

Instead of have two Wikis to cover these rather small series should will put them in one under Robowiki?

I don't think so personally, since they're two unrelated series.

as I've said before, I think it's a waste to make individual wikis for such small series

While i agree, the two being unrelated would not work well for wikis.

I think Lord Ferrok is talking about Chibi Robo and Custom Robo. I just want to clear that up because some people may have thought he was talking about Golden Sun and Custom Robo (I know that doesn't make sense because Golden Sun has nothing to do with robots, but that's what I thought he was talking about at first). Regardless, I agree that they should be kept separate. It would be like Zelda Wiki absorbing a Fire Emblem Wiki just because Fire Emblem has a similar medieval-fantasy setting.
