You mean this Metroid Wiki? The quality of the articles is iffy, but we could try to work around that... or not...

There is also a Kirbypedia I found recently, but whether or not it's good is questionable at best.

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?

This is a great suggestion. According to its "About page" (http://www.metroidwiki.org/index.php/Metroid_Wiki:About), it's only been up for less than a week, and it already has 76 articles. It was also started by a couple of people from Zelda Informer - which helps with ZeldaWiki.org - so I think this wiki will definitely become a part of this network as soon as it develops.

The same goes for WiKirby (http://wikirby.info/wiki/WiKirby:About). From what I understand, it was created by the members of the three original NIWA wikis with the sole purpose of enlarging the scope of the alliance.

Well it's definitely more developed than WiKirby.

Hello everyone, I am Hemu and I am speaking on behalf of my superiors on Fantendo

Super Mario Bros. has told me about him proposing Fantendo into the alliance, and we are fine with being in this alliance, as fantendo would get more community from this

also we are planning moving off wikia and cleaning up the place


That is all

I clicked "Random Page" on Kirbypedia and this is what I got: http://www.kirbysrainbowresort.net/kirbypedia/Amon

It has quality issues that need to be handled before consideration.

Hello Hemu :)

SMB told us about Fantndo willing to be in the Alliance. I supported it, but i think it shouldnt be a "main" affiliate because its fanon, but I see it as a great option

Wouldn't this be one of the purposes of the alliance in the first place? Of course there must be some required level of quality,  but isn't one of the purposes of this alliance to improve on everything the wiki's had separately? This would help it enormously. The same goes for the Metroid Wiki, but it probably should be given time, as it's only been up for less than a month, but both of those have connections to the wikis in this alliance.

IIRC, Kirbypedia does not allow open registration. It's essentially only for the staff of Kirby's Rainbow Resort. Therefore, I think it's disqualified.

Wrong Kirbypedia http://wikirby.info/wiki/Main_Page
You probably looked at the one at rainbow resort becomes the person who posted the link to Wikirby named it kirbypedia.

What you just said made no sense to me.

What I meant is, the Kirby wiki 2257 talked about and the one that may be considered for the alliance are tow different wikis.

2257 was talking about Kirbypedia.

Also, which do you mean by "the one that may be considered for the alliance"

I believe the one that may be considered is this wiki.

That's what I thought too, but I think Level 3 is talking about the other one.

I was talking about Kirbypedia. Kirbypedia is ineligible.

WiKirby will get into the alliance when it's ready. It was indeed created for that specific purpose.

So there are "tiers" of affiliates? Even though Fantendo focuses on fanon, it's specifically Nintendo fanon. It would be silly to rank Fantendo below the others IMO because I can't think of any other major wiki that would also be ranked below the others. Fantendo would be the only one below the others, which is silly and unneeded.

Well, I didnt exactly mean that. We have SMW, BP and ZW as the "Main" wikis.

I would consider adding a Star Fox Wiki and an F-Zero Wiki, but I don't know any independent ones.

Well yeah, but I don't think they should be officially called the "Main" wikis. They're just "Main" because they are the most active. I mean, Fantendo wouldn't be a "Main" wiki because it isn't as active. Sorry, I thought you meant that wikis were going to be tiered or something.
