Forums: Index Watercooler SSBBrawlers affiliation

I have a proposal to make an official affiliation with the the SSBBrawlers group on deviantART. I'm a moderator of this group dedicated to Smash Bros., and the founder of the group has approved of an affiliation with SmashWiki. It's the largest Smash Bros. group on deviantART, and it would give us potential new readers and users, as well as allow us to branch out to another userbase.

What do they basically do?--WolfHeadSSBB.png PSIWolf (TCE) 09:44, 16 October 2011 (EDT)
It's a group for connecting fans of Smash Bros., and for featuring art of Smash Bros. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 09:47, 16 October 2011 (EDT)
How is that good for SmashWiki?--FalcoHeadSSBB.png PSIWolf (TCE) 09:48, 16 October 2011 (EDT)
Brings attention to us. Support. We should also revive that TheRunawayGuys affiliation thing, even though they suck at Brawl. ToastUltimatum Transparent Swadloon.pngComplaints Box 09:50, 16 October 2011 (EDT)
How would that bring attention to SmashWiki? Are the SSBBrawlers ridicilously well know on dArt or something?--WolfHeadSSBB.png PSIWolf (TCE) 09:52, 16 October 2011 (EDT)
SSBBrawlers is currently nearly 2000 strong in membership, and growing. It's the largest Smash Bros. group on dArt, and it's bring attention to SmashWiki by drawing in these potential reader and users. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 09:57, 16 October 2011 (EDT)
What do you mean with "Drawing in these potential reader and users"?--FalcoHeadSSBB.png PSIWolf (TCE) 09:59, 16 October 2011 (EDT)
Users on there visit our Wiki. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 10:03, 16 October 2011 (EDT)
Oh, then it seems that my idea of "affiliation" was too big :P Support.--FoxHeadSSBB.png PSIWolf (TCE) 10:04, 16 October 2011 (EDT)
Support, so long as we just support fanon, and don't proudly display it on mainspace pages. We need the extra hits. PenguinofDeath 10:01, 16 October 2011 (EDT)
Support: Couldn't hurt. DokteurPain99 11:56, 16 October 2011 (EDT)
Support. Mr. AnonMatchupUnknown.pngtalk 12:01, 16 October 2011 (EDT)
Support. Could help in hit counts, and thus, google results. ReiDemon 12:02, 16 October 2011 (EDT)
Support: I'm not the biggest fan of TRG (don't tell them I said that :P) but for reasons I'm sure we all know, I'd support affiliating with DeviantART to spread the word about us. --RoyboyXRoyHeadSSBM.png Talk 12:10, 16 October 2011 (EDT)
Why not? Miles (talk) 12:48, 16 October 2011 (EDT)
Support: I'm all for giving this wiki, the REAL SmashWiki, and not the dreaded SmashWikia, the exposure it deserves. Hopefully we'll get some new users here too! Anthony1996 (talk) 17:30, 16 October 2011 (EDT)
Support --HavocReaper48 19:29, 16 October 2011 (EDT)
Support BlindColours ...PUNCH!!! 20:02, 16 October 2011 (EDT)
Support. One thing though, just becaise more users are in doesnt mean'y they are good at editing wikis and possibly, they might have lack of ssb knowledge -[-=-]-Lucas-IV- Just breed it Lucas alive.PNG 06:52, 18 October 2011 (EDT)
Lt4, I don't think a group who call themeselves "SSBBrawlers" lack Smash Bros. knowledge.--FalcoHeadSSBB.png PSIWolf (TCE) 06:59, 18 October 2011 (EDT)

With this unanimous, I'll go make the affiliation official there. I would like to ask though, how will the affiliation be handled here? Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 13:53, 17 October 2011 (EDT)

That kinda was my point... You said it would make new users go here and make SW a bit more popular or something.--FoxHeadSSBB.png PSIWolf (TCE) 13:56, 17 October 2011 (EDT)
No, that was not. I'm asking how should the affiliation be notified here? Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 14:14, 17 October 2011 (EDT)
Sitenotice or main page? Sorry for misunderstanding.--FalcoHeadSSBB.png PSIWolf (TCE) 14:18, 17 October 2011 (EDT)
I assumed we would make a standard Affiliates page, and perhaps, if we get more than one non-NIWA affiliate, add links below the NIWA bar on the Main Page. Miles (talk) 14:35, 17 October 2011 (EDT)
A sidebar box wouldn't be a bad idea either. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Metroid 18:32, 17 October 2011 (EDT)
