I like this. I would think most people who know something about Earthbound know it from Super Smash Bros (and those who knew it previously have probably played Super Smash Bros). Because of that, I don't think there will be any problem as far as recognition goes. The logo can further solidify that recognition.

If you think about it, Bulbapedia and Lylat Wiki have names that aren't just the name of their respective series.

If you have any suggestions for the NIWA community, post them here.

It does qualify as a "Suggestion for the NIWA Community"......

If its about a new wiki, I could split it to a new topic to be more organized

sure, if you feel it's needed. We've pretty much stayed on this topic since we started it, so it should be a clean split.

I've signedup and I've played the last two games so I'll see what I can do.

I've expanded the EarthBound article so that it is longer than just a sentence. I've also made a couple pages for the towns.

Right now, should we concentrate on making long pages or making numerous pages? I was thinking it would be nice to just make many short pages because they will grow over time. On the other hand, you might want us to start with thorough pages so that we won't end up with a wiki full of stubs.

    A good mixture of both would be Ideal, and just for examples sake:

    for every 5 pages that are created,
    • three of them needs to be created from a red link
    • you go back and expand on three pages



    or something similar that works best for you. Whatever you choose, we want Stubs to make up no more than ____% of the content. It's not a binding number, but the higher the percent is, the worst of a job we are doing in encouraging people to expand on what is already there.

    On the other hand, if the number is too low, than we may wish too look around to see if pages need splitting, categorizing and other things, because the wiki as a whole may not be expanding when it should be....but this end is INCREDIBLY more situational, as there hasn't been much new content for Earthbound in many years.

    (Also: I am not saying i do not want a low stub-percentage; but certain numbers are just unrealistic, such as 0).


    As always, this is just my opinion.


    Edit: In the grandest of NIWA Traditions, (which, being it's only 4 months old, is pretty significant) I've set upa skype chat group for the EarthBound Wiki. If you wish to join, please contact me at Username: Tacopill[/list]

    Check this out:


    Tried to imitate the style of the EarthBound lettering with this. I also kept it simple.
    I was originally going to put a globe or the Franklin Badge in the background, but then I thought that might be overkill. Too much stuff isn't good for a logo. It needs to be simple and recognizable (I'm not saying my example is).

    Also, here is a version that is more Mr. Saturn-y:


    They might look better with a skin of complementary colours...

    If you want to use these (even if only as a placeholder until you find something better or something), you can have them (you, as in "the wiki that is linked to on the first page of this thread").
    "Will you stop?!!? What fools!
    Haven't you begun to understand? The kingdom being ruined and us left in this state...
    Isn't it petty, little battles like this that have caused it?
    Believing in your friends and embracing that belief by forgiving failure...
    These feelings have vanished from our hearts."
    -Igos Du Ikana, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

    It's a little big...

    I'll make a smaller one.

    EDIT:

    Try this one. It should fit.

    Also, on a side note, is the official spelling of Ness's smash move: PKFire or PK Fire?

    The Super Smash Bros. website lists it as PK Fire.
