Affiliation, for sure. I say we should accept if they request to join NIWA.

I don't see any problem with a Dragon Quest wiki joining NIWA.

Bump.  Just wanted to stop by and say that I have made some major updates to the Dragon Quest Wiki recently.  Most were to make things more visually appealing. 

http://dragon-quest.org

Now I just need to find some more users.  ;)  Lately it seems like most of our regular contributors have been on hiatus.

All,

I would like to go ahead and formally request that our wiki be considered for membership in NIWA.  I believe that we fulfill all of the requirements listed in the membership doc.  We have been independent for almost a year now and I feel that we have progressed to the point where an alliance would be beneficial.  The Dragon Quest community is small, but stable.  I feel that we could contribute positively to NIWA.

'Stead of Dragon Quest Wiki affiliating with NIWA, I propose that SEIWA, the Square Enix -IWA, which Dragon Quest Wiki is part of, affiliate with NIWA. I am surprise this hasn't happened already.

Joining and affiliating are two different things.  SEIWA would affiliate only.  DQ Wiki could join because it is now a Nintendo-only franchise.

Dragon Quest is not a Nintendo-only franchise. If it is, I will be disappointed. Nevertheless, Dragon Quest is not a Nintendo-owned franchise.

Since it looks like you guys are taking slightly looser requirements on affiliation now (at least for your sidebar!) and I always wince a bit when I see the suggestions here to work with the Wikia versions or what have you:

http://info.sonicretro.org
http://segaretro.org

Note that for our corner of fandom it doesn't make as much sense to have child wikis, so we just have the two major ones.

Why do you think that, may I ask? I get what you're saying with Wikia; that may cause trouble, but I think any independent wiki of good quality may be affiliates if they ask. It promotes the idea of healthy wiki development.

SonicRetro and SegaRetro are nice, but I am concerned about their hosting of emulators, editors, and game software.

Hi guys. Quasar from the independent Doom Wiki at http://doomwiki.org here. I had been in a conversation with your coordinator about getting affiliate status going and was told a couple weeks ago that everything was go, but since that point I've received no further communication despite sending a couple emails. We added some new links to the site (we had one already on our WikiNode, where we do our best to support the whole independent wiki scene) but I now have users questioning whether or not those should stay there and have to provide answers for them soon.

I'm personally in favor of as many sites like ours working together as possible. We're engaged in an uphill and seemingly losing battle for web rank against the wikia site that we forked our content from originally. We've had to deal with plagiarism, server and domain name configuration issues, hackers, you name it.

Let me know at least on what kind of time table I can expect for reciprocation on your affiliates link list, if you could. If the thing's been called off for some reason, I need to know that as well.

It appears that you successfully reminded staff about your affiliation, as you are now listed in the affiliates section, and our twitter account has made a post on it.
