New Alliance Requests
« on: July 08, 2010, 12:38:22 AM »
The previous Alliance Request thread has served its purpose, but as a casualty of our hasty setup became unmanageably messy.  Also many of the options we have now didn't exist then. We can now add Affiliates which can be any manner of site that supports NIWA or its member wikis.

Consider all previous requests void! We're starting over with new options. We realize NIWA is still young and may change later, but affiliating can be the absolute first step for a candidate wiki to join as a full NIWA wiki. When suggesting a site consider whether they would fit as:
  • Affiliates: Wikis and forums supportive of NIWA and/or its members.
  • Membership Requests: If the wiki seems ready to stand shoulder to shoulder with the rest, let us know that the submission is a membership request. The staff will need to host a private discussion, but the first step should be a new thread on the site.
  • New Wiki Startups: Be clear if your submission is a new wiki intended for NIWA membership. Although we can't build your wiki for you, we can offer guidance, connections, and a place to discussion its potential.

Yes, and to be fair to them, so there's no rejections yet, I'm going to encourage the view that these aren't yet membership requests. I want people to see it as some new wikis that should be members someday- and get to helping them!

So far, the strongest one is the Animal Crossing Wiki. I have the link but I haven't heard if they are prepped for a semi-public soft launch. I've been busy, they've been busy, so we haven't communicated.

Above is the franchises that are on wikipedia's Category:Nintendo franchises, similar to the list i posted on the previous thread. However, this time around i am looking for a catalog-of-sorts, where we can list places for people to visit the wiki and the forum thread where people can talk about it. (i also threw on the franchises i listed earlier, as examples).

I think GameHiker covers everything. So I'd default to them for everything. People should still be encourage to create fan wikis which would have more coverage of a series tho.

I'd love to make a wiki. Out of those listed, I'd prefer F-Zero, since I know more about that than the others. The problem is, I don't have the computer to do it with. Ever tried building a wiki on Vista Basic?

Nope, i haven't tried. I rent webspace, as i don't have the money for a business-class connection with my ISP.....plus i don't have server-running experience.....and other reasons.

While in the long term, NIWA may be able to arrange hosting solutions for its smaller members, wikis that are trying for NIWA membership really need to show that they can stand on their own two feet first. Ideally, people starting up these wikis should be the existing communities around these franchises, rather than people who haven't run a wiki or large fansite before.

I agree fully with that. If there isn't a strong fanbase for a franchise, the wiki more than likely won't draw in visitors, and will fail.

Pikmin
I found a "pikmin wiki"...of-sorts...hosted at the same place Ace Attorney Wiki is. It has one article, the Main page,...but it exists. Here
This was actually a test made by me and the other admins at the site which we planned to change back to what it was before (a Banjo-Kazooie wiki) after we were done testing it, though I do have plans for a real Pikmin wiki.

Ok, sounds good. How long do you think it will take until these plans come through?

*sighs* Sorry if I'm being nooby but I'm not used to here.

I have a Wiki up that I made for the NIWA that I'm slowly working on but I need some help on it considering me and a few people on Zelda Temple are working on it.

http://fireemblemwiki.zelda-temple.net/Main_Page

http://fireemblemwiki.zelda-temple.net/Category:Classes As you can see we'll easily have a lot of articles in no time... Once we work on it a bit.

I don't have the money for a domain name so I'll ask someone later. The wiki just started up so I'm looking for affiliaitions. =\

And sorry if I posted it in the wrong section. >_<; Like I said I'm new.

Coool, a Fire Emblem Wiki! I have three games (actually four, but I haven't played one significantly) so I'll be able to help. :D

Specifically, I'm experienced in the Sacred Stones, which, by no coincidence, is the easiest. (it's the only one I've beaten.)

I've played FE6 - Sword of Seals (English Patch), FE7 - Blazing Sword, FE8 - Sacred Stones (<3 Joshua), and FE9- Path of Radiance (<3 Soren). So XD. I need to replay some of them.

Could use some more help. I've worked on two different games using their English names instead of Japanese ones.
