Forums: Index Watercooler SWF still links to Wikia

So apparently smashboards still links to Smash Wikia. I've made a post in it's forum support but no replies so far. Can somebody inform them so to link it here? T.testLP (talk) 08:14, 21 November 2010 (EST)

I've sent two PMs to two different admins, no response. I think Miles has done the same as well. Toomai Glittershine Data Node 09:48, 21 November 2010 (EST)
Yep. They're impossible to contact, it would seem. Heck, I even asked nealdt and he had no idea. Miles (talk) 12:55, 21 November 2010 (EST)
Maybe we should start using stronger language, like "You're now linking to a piece-of-crap wiki that we plan to let dissolve into a pile of mush". Toomai Glittershine Data Node 14:07, 21 November 2010 (EST)
The terminology won't matter if they don't check their messages. :/ Miles (talk) 17:25, 21 November 2010 (EST)
Maybe write a blog on SWF? So more users realize it? Toomai Glittershine Data Node 17:28, 21 November 2010 (EST)
I tried the "Contact Us" link on the off-chance anyone reads the messages from it. :/ Miles (talk) 17:38, 21 November 2010 (EST)

I know this forum hasn't been used for a month but this issue is still ongoing, the wiki link in Smash Wold Forums still links to the wikia (which isn't inactive anymore, some admins have arrived at the wikia) is there anything that can be done apart from spamming requests to the admins?--Shaun's Wiji Dodo talk Untitled-1 copy.gif 02:44, 11 January 2011 (EST)

Pretty much no. Just keep PM'ing various admins until we get one that works. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Undirigible 08:39, 11 January 2011 (EST)
If me and you were to edit on the Wikia, would that keep it from users being prematurely given adminship? Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 11:46, 11 January 2011 (EST)
The staff guy that showed up said that the regular two-month period is being waived because it's a high-traffic wiki. Luckily, there are pretty much no smart users to speak of, so there will be no potential admins. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Eggster 12:57, 11 January 2011 (EST)

Got a response from an admin from SWF

Hi Omega,

We have had some brief discussions about the future of the wiki links within the senate. The reality is we are exploring redoing the entire main page and where the wiki stuff fits in is something we are going to have to consider.

Frankly I am not so sure we are going to continue to have any links what so ever to the wiki. The reality is it is an external site in which we have zero control over.

That said we are going to have to talk about it more and then potentially discuss things with you and the other admin over there.

For now though, we might just take the whole thing down.

Regardless thanks for the pm about the switch.


It seems like we're finally getting through. While I would prefer a link to our site, no Wiki link is better than a link to Wikia. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 10:29, 12 January 2011 (EST)

Maybe we could put a link to Smash World Forums on our main page or give one of their admins some power to suggest ideas for this wiki, that might sway their decision to keep a link to a wiki, preferably this one.--Shaun's Wiji Dodo talk Untitled-1 copy.gif 10:41, 12 January 2011 (EST)

Well, SmashBoards no longer has a link to SmashWikia in their menu, though the [wiki] tags available still go to it. It's an improvement. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Frivolous 21:54, 2 February 2011 (EST)
