Hello, I'm Wesley777i from SmashPedia (the Spanish one: [1]). We've been recently planning on parting ways with Wikia due to many problems with them over the many years we've been hosted by them ([2] in Spanish). With the help of WikiDex's (the Spanish Pokémon wiki, which recently parted ways with Wikia) head, we're staring to wrap things up to move the wiki outside Wikia. One of the things we would like to do outside of Wikia is allying ourselves with ssbwiki since it may help our community, not only in letting us been known by more people, but more importantly to try and enter more on the competitive field of Smash Bros. (specially the Spanish side of it) which has always been something we haven't focused in too much, and is also something I think can help grow the community.

Word of this came to some users of the discord server of this wiki, and we learned that we could use the domain for our wiki. We think it could be a great idea, but first it would be better if we ally ourselves with ssbwiki before deciding on that. So I would like to know what the community here thinks about the idea. --Wesley777i (talk) 23:07, 7 July 2018 (EDT)

I see no reason why not. Just don't expect me to be able to help out very much. Black Vulpine of the Furry Nation. Furries make the internets go! :3 04:21, 8 July 2018 (EDT)
Support, sounds good. This is something that can be mutually beneficial. Alex the Jigglypuff trainer 08:57, 8 July 2018 (EDT)
Support: Love the idea, and I believe it will benefit both of our communities. VoqéoT 09:00, 8 July 2018 (EDT)
Support it'd be good to branch off into other languages, plus we have Spanish-speaking users who'd be able to help out with some of the things. Aidan, the College-Bound Rurouni 09:03, 8 July 2018 (EDT)
Thanks guys, I appreciate the comments. And I'm glad to see there's support on this proposal. --Wesley777i (talk) 20:11, 8 July 2018 (EDT)
Support: As others have said, this will be greatly beneficial for both communities. Pokebub (talk) 01:54, 11 July 2018 (EDT)
Support Any wiki that wishes to defect from Wikia has my support. As stated by others, it's also good to have support for other languages. RoyboyX Talk 13:51, 15 July 2018 (EDT)
Support As others have said before, I think this’ll be a great idea, and it’ll especially be beneficial for both of our communities. SSB4DarkSonicHead.pngSpeed48 13:55, 15 July 2018 (EDT)
Support It will help the Spanish part of the community. For personal use. George Jones Walls Can Fall.jpg 11:21, 18 July 2018 (EDT)

The unanimous community support has been noted. The staff will now discuss it, and will come back with a result in a few days. Serpent SKSig.png King 20:42, 2 August 2018 (EDT)
