Hello! I am Zork Master, from Dos Game Wiki. I was wondering if your wiki would like to join an initiative to build a global library of Wikis, covering every topic, from broad topics such as Aviation, to more complex, such as Sailplanes. For example, your Wiki would be under catergory Science Fiction. Take however long you need discussing your desicions, and please respond at our main page here. Thank You!

  • That's exactly what Wikia is—a global library of wikis covering every topic. 1358 (Talk) 17:21, February 22, 2012 (UTC)
    • Exactly, but, it does not link every topic. For example, on the Wikia home page, the only way to find specific Wikis is to use the searchbox, which in this case is unreliable, visit a random wiki using the button or attempt to create a wiki. It is in this manner that we wish to change Wikia. We hope to change it by having catergories on the main page, which drop down to reveal specifics wikis. For example, Wookiepedia would be under Popular Culture-Science Fiction and would be the Star Wars Wiki. In this way, availibility would be easier, revolutionized, even. It is also known that not every topic is covered (there is no Liechtenstien Wiki or Waterfowl Wiki) and we aim to fix this. We also acknowledge that the larger, broader Wikipedia limits Wikia and the future directory, and our goal is also to eliminate our rival (which is where we get our name, WAAW, Wikia Alliance Against Wikipedia). Our last goal is, of course, to maintain the directory. However, you must no that no one can accomplish this feat alone, we require the support of other Wikis. The Main for this initive is DOS Game Wiki, where it was founded. We would like to know if your Wiki would like to join WAAW. please take as much time as you need discussing your induction, and post your desicion here. Thank you!

      • Have you tried contacting Wikia with suggestions for them to improve/create a proper directory? They have access to entire infrastructure that they host, so they'd seem like the best-equipped ones to do this. —NAYAYEN 18:11, February 26, 2012 (UTC)
        • I would think that I would need general consensus from all the Wikis, plus task forces before I do that. Zork Master 21:17, February 26, 2012 (UTC)
          • You'd be surprised. Obviously, trying to eliminate Wikipedia is a foolish idea anyway, but asking Wikia to get together a proper directory isn't. It'd be worth a try, they can do whatever they want with listing wikis that they host. —NAYAYEN 21:38, February 26, 2012 (UTC)
            • And that is exactly what I will do. You still did not answer my question, however. Does Wookieepedia support the goals and ideals of WAAW? Would you like to be a member? Zork Master 15:44, February 27, 2012 (UTC)
              • I see no reason to "try destroy Wikipedia" and the whole idea is foolish. You don't even explain it anywhere WHY that goal exist that I could see. Sorry if I sound a bit harsh but this kind of initials makes no sense and I find them pointlessly confrontational. – Tm_T@Wookieepedia:~$ 09:53, February 29, 2012 (UTC)
                • Our goal is not "To destroy Wikipedia". The closest goal you may be thinking of is our goal to surpass Wikipedia as the information giant on the Internet. However, our main goal is to link up the Wikis under one library. Zork Master 19:24, February 29, 2012 (UTC)
                  • Just a general word of warning, your acceptance period will end on 29th of March (6 days). Your wiki will then have to sign the acceptance form and take the test like any other wiki that wishes to join, also, we are moving our page soon. Zork Master 18:27, March 23, 2012 (UTC)
                    • Which wikis have joined you?--Masterbmw 04:26, March 24, 2012 (UTC)
