I was looking at other Sonic wikia's and was wondering if we could negotiate with other Sonic wiki's to merge? I know this may sound slightly arrogent plus some debate on wiki names and such but if we could bridge and merge with other wikis that are generally the same, not only we would share access with bits of new knowledge but also make fans searching for information easier. I won't say one Sonic wiki is better than the other but no one would if there was a single conveniant well of information. Of course the only Sonic Wiki's I realised is us and a few other English Sonic wiki's, however with other Sonic wiki's in different languages such as Polish, Portugese, Spanish, Turkish and German it would be very useful that if there will be one Sonic wiki it would be multilingual (like on Wikipedia there is a list of languages on the left which translate the articles information). While not an exact translation I think it maybe importance to consider Sonic's fans from around the world.--Mystic Monkey 01:38, December 18, 2009 (UTC)

On second thought, this should be in Questions, I tried moving it but failed, How do I move it?--Mystic Monkey 01:45, December 18, 2009 (UTC)
Funny you should mention that, because I've already merged one Wikia here, and am negotiating a second. -- Supermorff 08:51, December 18, 2009 (UTC)
If I knew other languages than ENglish I would help with rewritting articles in other languages. But I only know one.--Mystic Monkey 21:35, December 18, 2009 (UTC)

Is it Shelly that speaks Spanish? I'm sure one of the other admins speaks Spanish. -- Supermorff 07:52, December 19, 2009 (UTC)

Oh, also, I think you may be slightly confused about Wikipedia. The links on the left link to other language versions of Wikipedia, which are separately, self-contained wikis. What we could do, once some of our other language wikis are up to scratch, is ask the Wikia staff to allow language linking here, so that we could add those language links on the left as well. But I haven't looked at the other language wikis enough to know whether it's worth it or not. -- Supermorff 07:55, December 19, 2009 (UTC)

Oh, I thought the other language Wikia's were the same. Like rough translations or something. Only Language Wikia I took more attention to is Latin Wikipedia. I can only speak English but I love latin for some reason.--Mystic Monkey 23:31, December 19, 2009 (UTC)
