Applying for Affiliation

As your self-elected adviser, I think it would be wise to tell people how to apply for affiliation, kupo! You know, something in the lines of "If you'd like to affiliate with us, please contact this user / write at the affiliate discussion page or the community portal etc", kupo.

On a side note, the Square Wiki wishes to affiliate with KHWiki, kupo. We're already linking to the KHWiki at our main page,

Vsymbol Got it. Lucky you notified me... (and tomorrow I've got an exam paper at 9 in the morning, phew !). I think I'll need someone to take care of the PowerPoint card template for me during my 3-month absence. Anyone whom I should send it to ?

ETA : I sent the file to BebopKate for safekeeping. Gotta rush back to my books now. See you soon !

How Bout This?

Affiliate?

An affiliate would link back to its partner, would it not? As far as I'm concerned only two, or three, of the sites here linkback to the KHWiki. Would someone contact them on this matter, or should I just turn this page into "Kingdom Hearts Wiki: External Links"? BLUER一番 11:06, October 6, 2009 (UTC)

Seems like there's no motivation on the matter. I'm going ahead and rename this page, plus a few tweaks. BLUER一番 08:16, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

Wokay... Instead of 1 to 6, we only have 2, 4, 5 and 6 !

I guess we'll have to leave the remaining spaces for newer affiliates then ? TNÉ En avant Bravo ! 12:35, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

You did them, didn't you? Awh, sorry. You could always upload a new file that removes the numbers. The numbers aren't necessary, I think. BLUER一番 16:58, October 13, 2009 (UTC)

I'll work on the files soon. ^_^ No worries, I'll remove the numbers and perhaps work on a new placeholder for the cards. TNÉ En avant Bravo ! 21:31, October 13, 2009 (UTC)

KH3 Fanon Wiki

Why have we affiliated with this wiki? The KH3 Fanon Wiki is completely devoid of any activity or improvement to itself, it just sits there collect dust. I am not expected any further enhancement to that wiki, since it has been around since February 2010, and has almost nothing to show for it. The wiki also does not link back to us, and most certainly does not display qualities of a good database of Kingdom Hearts-relevant information that we are trying to affiliate with. --I, DoorToNothing, have left the Kingdom Hearts Wikia forever and shall never return. Wikia is an ignorant, stubborn, dictatorial, and oppressive faceless ruler, caring all about their public relations and advertisements rather than content and encyclopedic presentation. For these reasons and many more, I have left this wiki to one that is a true encyclopedia of the series, run by the fans for the fans. Click it. 18:44, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

I do think the KH3 Fanon Wiki will soon replicate the Kingdom Hearts Wiki. And it was not my decision to affiliate that Wiki with this one. I will talk to ZTG/TLE...Or, I think it was Trois that decided to affiliate the KH3 Fanon Wiki with this one. --FotoFlexer_Photo.jpg史克威尔罗克斯FotoFlexer_Photo-1.jpg 18:58, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

We certainly aren't seeking a replication for an affiliate, though. What we want is something with the same or a similar subject as the Kingdom Hearts Wiki, but does have something else to offer viewers when they click that "Related Sites" button. Right now, I see nothing the KH3 Fanon Wiki can offer them, or even the baseline of even one fanon story after its nearly six-month existence. In my opinion, these are obvious signs of a dead wiki. --I, DoorToNothing, have left the Kingdom Hearts Wikia forever and shall never return. Wikia is an ignorant, stubborn, dictatorial, and oppressive faceless ruler, caring all about their public relations and advertisements rather than content and encyclopedic presentation.

I don't see why not. It's a wiki about Kingdom Hearts and thats what matters most in the end. --Charité 00:01, July 20, 2010 (UTC)
There are only two users now, but it's too early to decry it. Just like how it initially was for KHF and KHFrancophone. Of course, with KHFrancophone, Unbirth decided to make us affiliates when our to-be third admin, Thomaskh2, came along. Now KH3F may be far from even complete, but the fact remains that they're willing to be on the same subject, and that they've only got two active users. Dead or not, unlike a person, it can be revived. Also, I'm going with BK's decision which was posted in the archives. Even then the wiki was struggling. So I say keep it ! DL AquaReraise De quoi je parle ? 00:40, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

Sadly, I agree with DTN here. That wiki is a failed state, with no mainspace, and no attempt to make one whatsoever. I think we should get rid of it. KKDRotated Kingdom Key D

Vsymbol We did test it out, and when we did there was activity, albeit minimal. If everyone's okay on deleting it, and if we have more than a simple majority, I'm all for removing it. After all...... KHF is still as active as ever.

The Kingdom Key: Deaffiliation

I have recently seen The Kingdom Key after it has gone through its revamp. It is absolutely and in no way a Kingdom Kearts fansite any longer, or even anything remotely related to Kingdom Hearts. With the consensus of the community, I would like to request the immediate deaffiliation of The Kingdom Key and the Kingdom Hearts Wiki, since we no longer have anything in common to foster a connection. --I, DoorToNothing, have left the Kingdom Hearts Wikia forever and shall never return. Wikia is an ignorant, stubborn, dictatorial, and oppressive faceless ruler, caring all about their public relations and advertisements rather than content and encyclopedic presentation. For these reasons and many more, I have left this wiki to one that is a true encyclopedia of the series, run by the fans for the fans. Click it. 18:55, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

Firstly, I agree as the link doesn't even work and I'm assuming that the site has been taken down. --Charité 19:09, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

Alright. Time to replace our number 6... I think. ^_^ DL AquaReraise De quoi je parle ? 00:40, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

EDIT 00:44, July 20, 2010 (UTC) : Wait. From all the placeholder text I see, the site is still under reconstruction. For all you know that placeholder text will be replaced with KH stuff ? As for the tagline, it's not promising, but I recommend we wait until they update their content. The link is indeed working for me. DL AquaReraise De quoi je parle ?

Weird, probaly a connection problem then, but it doesn't look like it's a kingdom hearts fansite anymore. --Charité 00:46, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

EDIT: Up until recently, The Kingdom Key has been a Kingdom Hearts fansite. When our community realized this label no longer reflected our interests, we decided to change and grow rather than die. Yup, it's no longer a kingdom hearts fansite. --Charité 00:48, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

Okay, de-affiliate. DL AquaReraise De quoi je parle ? 00:54, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I would argee with said course of action. The first time I found a redirect explaining the move, I notified BK. Once I saw it "die" to the KH world, I told Kate again. I believe it should be removed effective immediatly. Invisible SwordLight, Darkness, and What Lies Inbetween... The_Inexistent

Keyblade-Blk Thank you, Organization 13. I'm not saying that any of those wikis would be bad affiliates, but we want to link to wikis that are associated with the subject of our wiki, Kingdom Hearts. Almost every single one of your suggestions is only transitively linked to Kingdom Hearts through Final Fantasy, which means that the link between subjects like Kingdom Hearts and Dragon Quest really just gets lost in that joint connection.

On the other hand, Disney Wiki seems like a definitely possible future affiliate, and affiliating with them may help us resolve the issue we have recent had with our... "shared" content. In addition, we should try to reach out to sites other than wikis! Lots of Kingdom Hearts fan and news sites exist out there. For example, Kingdom Hearts Insider, Kingdom Hearts Ultimania, and even KH-Vids.Net could all be great affiliates to us. Our only non-wiki affiliate is Heartstation, we should definitely expand on that.

KHMedia Affiliation

Hey, I'm a staff member of a site called Kingdom Hearts Media, and I was wondering if we could affiliate with the KH Wikia. Here's the link:

Keyblade-Blk I just went through all of our affiliates to check that they are all linking back to the Kingdom Hearts Wiki. Shockingly, five four three of them are not displaying the name or link at all.
  • Spanish Kingdom Hearts Wiki: Shows no display of us as an affiliate, yet they feature another affiliate, the Disney Wiki, in that space. I cannot find any link to this wiki over there.
  • Final Fantasy Wiki: This wiki supposedly has an affiliates page, though I cannot find it and it is not displayed on their front page or side bar. If we are linking to them with easy access through our front page, yet they are not providing the link to our wiki, we are not gaining anything from our affiliation.
  • Dead Fantasy Wiki: This wiki has an affiliates section on their main page... which we are not listed under. This could be a simple mistake, or a request to de-affiliate.
  • KH-Vids.Net: The last item in the left column on their front page is called "Affiliates" and lists all of theirs--though we are not listed.

In addition to this, GrandPyromania only links to us in his videos of his Kingdom Hearts "Let's Play!", and we are not mentioned anywhere else in his information. Our other YouTube affiliate links to us in their information box, which is a bit more convenient. Should we take action on this, or just let it fly since there is some form of linking (though it is small and diminutive)?

I suggest we contact these sites and allow a few weeks to a month to allow for them to add us to an affiliates listing or section. If this is not met, we have no choice but to end our affiliation.

Keyblade-Blk Every other site shows their affiliates or a link to their affiliates directory on their main page. If FFWiki is not going to display that, they are making it extremely difficult for any of their viewers to find us. It surely will not be much trouble to add a short link to their front page, and I've sent Faethin a memo on the issue.

Never mind, they do display it on their front page. It isn't very clear, but it is at the bottom of the page and uses the Wikia Gaming box, so that's why I missed. Sorry for the confusion.

Keyblade-Blk Okay, the Dead Fantasy Wiki has acknowledged our request and added us to their affiliates box on their front page. The Spanish Kingdom Hearts Wiki and KH-Vids.Net, have yet to take any action. They have about a day or so to make the necessary change, or else we will de-affiliate with those two partners from our wiki.

Vsymbol.png I'm confused as to what an affiliate actually is. Is it a wiki or site that links to us in their content, or is it like a website friendlist?

I just don't really understand why we have the Spyro Wiki as an affiliate. I mean, there isn't much you can relate between Spyro and Kingdom Hearts besides the fact that they're both fantasy video games and they're both awesome. It seems like Spyro Wiki would work more like an accomplice, not what I understand a true affiliate is. As for the YouTube accounts, pretty much the same point.

Keyblade-Blk An affiliate is any wiki, site, or organization that has decided to link back to the Kingdom Hearts Wiki as a sign of partnership. Most of our affiliates we have due to our related topics. It is not exacatly a friendlist, since we hardly interact with many of our affiliates, nor do they. Affiliation is basically a beneficial partnership to both sites to spread a link to their site to another popular site.

The concern about Spyro Wiki has been raised before, but I think it was "settled" by TNE jumping the gun and adding the wiki to our affiliates list. YouTube accounts seem fine to me since those YouTube channels contain "Let's Play"s of Kingdom Hearts, which is the reason we are affiliated with them.

Possible Affiliate

I have found a very good site, with every cutscene, boss battle, and trailer in every Kingdom Hearts game. The site is neat, and well presented. Should we affiliate? (www.KH13.com) Heartless hiresDarkheart3 Nobody 03:52, September 11, 2011 (UTC)
