This thread is to request joining the Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance for ambitious, high-quality, independently hosted Wikis that are interested in joining the movement.

We could try to get SmashWiki to join the alliance. After all, Super Smash Bros is loved by many people, and there are a lot of good quality articles in this relating to the Super Smash Bros games (Characters, stages, items, modes etc.) and some in-depth information on the characters themselves in their respective franchises.

It's not independent, though.

Good point, but it's not exactly easy to find an independent wikipedia these days; most of them are linked to the Wikia site...

Yes, the point of this is to take the independent wikis only. Wikia wikis are out of the question, I'm afraid. We could ask them about moving off of Wikia, though.

Apparently we're gonna get some sort of Meta-Wiki soon, so I suggest that we use the Super Mario Wiki's Meta-Wiki, Userpedia

Isn't that decision a little fast? oô

Again, Strategy Wiki is on Wikia. We don't need to cut all ties with Wikia wikis, but I think allowing them to join would defeat the pupose of being an "Independent" wiki alliance.

Regarding Userpedia, I don't think it would be a good fit. Our "Meta-Wiki" is going to be about Nintendo Series that don't yet have a dedicated wiki in the alliance. It will also cover the alliance itself.

It's sort of hard to find an independent Wiki since most of them are tied with Wikia. Probably because Wikia is free and easy to use to begin with.

That's exactly the reason why this organization was founded.

This. Not to mention, Userpedia is of very, very low quality.

So basically we need to avoid non-independent Wiki's (Neoseeker, Wikia etc.) and/or wiki's that are generally poor.
Also, franchises that have been crossed-over don't count (Metal Gear, Pac-man, Sonic the Hedghog etc.)

The only independent Nintendo wiki I know of apart fro the three already in the alliance is Metroid Wiki (not the wikia one, of course), but it's less than a month old.

What about wikis about things that aren't exclusively Nintendo?
Would those qualify?

We don't count non-Nintendo Wikipedias.

Well those wikis aren't necessarily non-Nintendo. Say Sonic, for example, it's practically Nintendo nowadays, and almost every Sonic game ever released can be found on a Nintendo platform, save for one, which is considered as the worst one, unless I've missed a few.

But if that doesn't qualify,there's always that Metroid wiki I mentioned.
