There's an 8bit Theatre Wiki under Wikia that is abandoned for some time now. I seriously think we should consider taking it for ourselves and start building and improving it up. Then we affiliate and link to each other.

I'm no fan of 8bit, but I'm sure most here are. What do you people think? —BLUER一番 09:28, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

I say takeover. I don't know if I'm a big enough fan to contribute, but it would be handy to have. Also, it could be a nice light-hearted wiki (silly image captions and such), since the series it's on isn't exactly serious. Diablocon 13:05, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I do understand this idea: humorous captions and statements, lax on the style and all - those things that I've seen something like Transformers Wiki do. We might as well start the takeover machine running and begin the process. I contacted the admin, but so far no reply. Check with wikia staff too, I'm sure most of us would be glad to manage the wiki as administrator (not me. I'm no fan of 8bitTheater) —BLUER一番 14:14, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
I'm sure Faethin or 8-bit (shock) would like running the place. Diablocon 14:18, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
I've revised my initial opinion and now believe that a take-over was indeed the best of ideas. But running it? I wouldn't have the time :S Anyway, when do we start part 2 of our megalomaniacal plan of conquest of all things Square? Faethinverba volant 14:31, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
Anytime. ScatheMote has already begun some cleanup, bless his soul. We should start adding content, organizing templates, categories and such and such at the same time. —BLUER一番 15:03, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
Since this wiki is slowly devouring all the Square things into our hungry cabal, couldn't we eventually all become one giant wiki blob and then eat all of Wikia? And then the WORLD? --BlueHighwind 20:10, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
Shhh! THAT'S PRECISELY THE PL- oh, crap. Faethinverba volant it really worth it? I say we should just assimilate it into our Wiki, increasing our number of articles... Chocolancer 19:05, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

It isn't Final Fantasy; it is just related; we shouldn't give extensive coverage. Also, the wiki sucks.  I Lion Heart I 19:24, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

It's a total ghost town there. The last edit by the head B-crat was in December. Yes, that wiki really needs help. ScatheMote

Seriously. Its overrun by vandals, and the pages are all stubs. I really need help! ScatheMote
Or you could wait until we get permission to completely own the wiki with imports. And all of the "vandalised" pages are as funny as hell. Nothing wrong with them IMO.  I Lion Heart I 21:54, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
Well, do you really want that wiki linked to ours in the state that it's in? ScatheMote
Cool, we can start moving 8bit articles there, which clears up the issue of how expansive our 8bit character articles should be. (Shockingly), like Faethin, I don't think I would be able to run the wiki; I'd ratehr contribute here. ScatheMote's done a good job of tidying up many articles, perhaps he would be interested in management? 8bit 23:31, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
I guess I could run it. I have to ask Wikia for that, right? ScatheMote

Indeed. Saanse is a good person to ask. Diablocon 00:08, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

I'll ask her soon if I can run the place. ScatheMote

That's good to hear, ScatheMote. At least one person to oversee administrative policies and designs would be enough for it - the better things of being the admin makes you in charge of the wiki design. Also, Randy3000, the Bcrat, replied to my query and said he doesn't mind anything, but wishes us to do our best. —BLUER一番 12:18, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

In any case, we should also start revising our 8bit Theater coverage. For one, EVERYTHING we have covered for the fancomic would redirected to its respective Article. Also, the wiki should be linked at the main page "Links and Affiliates" as well as the article itself.

And at the wiki, we'll have to start the design process. How should the wiki handle content and stuff? That's one of the questions we should contemplate. —BLUER一番 12:31, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

We will have to remove all See Also's directing to 8-Bit characters; and where-ever else directs to 8-Bit right? (So we just redirect all the pages to 8-Bit and check the links)  I Lion Heart I 16:54, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

I'd love to see another wiki in the same vein of the TF wiki, goofy comments with a slightly sarcastic tone, which in my opinion would fit perfectly with the tone of the comic. would it be possible to get Brian Clevinger involed somehow? FinalFighterA+

Brian is too busy to get involved with Wikis, as he's stated somewhere. And I think a serious Wiki based on 8-Bit would be a bad move. Diablocon 19:42, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

I agree with Diablocon, If there were to be an 8bit Wiki then it would have to be slightly more casual then the information here Rocking Chair

News: I am now a sysop at the wiki. ScatheMote

Good news. The invasion has begun. XD Diablocon 18:27, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
Congratulations! Now it's easier to do administrative changes. Next agenda: Move and Redirect! —BLUER一番 18:33, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
An invasion that I have not been notified of?! THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!!! Anyways, I have decided to help out with this cause, and in doing so have created the Hadoken page and edited the White Mage page.--NeoBahamut 01:18, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
Congrats! If I read the comic after like the 200th one I'd help out, but it's hard to read them all. --Crazyswordsman 02:54, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
So exactly how much Wikia do we rule over now? --SCM 03:01, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Now can we take over the KH wiki? Shall We shall expand our power? All wikis are not created equal! ALL HAIL BRITANN...i mean the FF wiki...Exdeath64 09:22, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

We already took over the KH Wiki (and Square Wiki, IIRC) --SCM 10:34, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Well, that's all the content already transferred. Next agenda: Removing dead wikilinks. No redirects necessary! —BLUER一番 03:28, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

So the FF wiki users control 3 other wikis? Not bad, <joke> you lot should try the stock market. Recessions don't fix themselves </joke> (assuming you are american)Exdeath64 04:28, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Recession hits the whole occidental world, you self-centered guy. And a lot of the rest of the world, actually. Alarielle
