Recently Wikia started the [http://www.wikia.com/Alliance Wikia Alliance] where we can either join the Fantasy Fellowship, Heroes United or SciFi Galaxy alliance. Now, it may sound stupid, but let me finish! If we sign up, we get:

  • Exclusive content and star interviews from other communities in our alliances
  • Promotion on the alliance hubs and on Twitter

If that's not good enough for you, we also get...a badge ([email protected]@@!) that proudly shows what alliance we're in. What more could we realistically ask for? A badge, guys.

Now, some of you will say "this sounds stupid and not very encyclopedic and Wikia is grasping at straws", but at the same time...fuck it. Just fuck it.

tl;dr we can be in an alliance. ʞooɔ 01:13, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Heroes United - RuneScape wiki united bucket. — Jr Mime (talk) 01:19, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Fantasy Fellowship - We don't want "Heroes United". We're too much of a fantasy wiki to have "actual heroes" like Shupar-min and Gwen Rantern. FF, I say! BrundtBro the Chieftain (talk) 01:27, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Fantasy Fellowship - because it sounds cool. And RuneScape is fantasy. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 01:29, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Undecided leaning on oppose - What true benefits would we be gaining from this? Maybe the added revenue from twitter advertising, but 'exclusive content and star interviews from other communities in our alliances' doesn't sound good. I wouldn't expect most of the other wikis to have some sort of secret update stuff they learned from a JMod, unless I've somehow completely taken this out of context.

Did you even read the part about the badge? ʞooɔ 01:34, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Let's go with Firefo...I mean Fantasy Fellowship - Cause Mozilla rocks, and we're more fantasy-ish What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 01:40, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

No, let's join the Firefox Alliance. That sounds amazing. Matt (t) 04:37, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Comment - We can join two or three of them. Just sayin'. Dtm142 (talk) 01:54, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Fantasy Fellowship and Heroes United - because we're so fucking awesome. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 02:10, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

frickin' badges people - what more could you ask for? Ajraddatz (Talk) 02:39, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Can you guys take the seriously for once? To help you all realise why this should be taken seriously, I've made an anagram for each alliance.

  • Fantasy Fellowship = Well shit... any soap, FF?
  • Heroes United = He rode iTunes
  • SciFi Galaxy = I fix clay gas

C'mon gais. for seriously MolMan 03:04, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

after reading the page multiple times i still have no clue what it actually is - but yay badges Matt (t) 03:13, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Final Fantasy Fellowship of the Ring - Even though the idea sounds stupid. Seriously, "exclusive content from others in our alliances"? ಠ_ಠ Blaze_fire.png12.png 04:31, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Badges - I really like badges and I think we should re-enable Achievements at the same time for double the benefits. 222 talk 08:21, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

yes i agree that would be good idea as we now have the runescape wikia popo to moderate edit farmers Ronan Talk 08:35, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Heroes United sounds awfully mainstream, but hey, how can we call ourselves part of Wikia if we don't jump on the bandwagon? Ronan Talk 08:35, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

heroes united - because the logo emblem thing for it is a w in a font similar to the wikia logo and wikia is the best company in the history of jimmy wales Matt (t) 09:28, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Seriously though, if we're actually going to engage in this, it wouldn't make any sense for us to be in Heroes United, and it wouldn't make any sense for us to be in "SciFi Galaxy" (don't think anybody is disputing that), so the only thing remaining is Fantasy Fellowship which makes enough sense. I still don't quite understand what it actually is yet (Wikia seems to think that yelling "Free Stuff! Badges! Promotion!" is an adequate explanation), but I'm fine to go through with it on the guarantee that there are badges in it for us. You can never have enough badges. Matt (t) 09:34, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Why have badges when you could have badgers? Oppose joining Wikia Alliance, support acquiring badgers through own means. Matt (t) 10:46, January 30, 2013 (UTC)
I am afraid we are out of badgers; would you accept a wolverine in its place? ʞooɔ 13:19, January 30, 2013 (UTC)
Wolverines unacceptable. I will settle for bearcats. cqm 14:23, 30 Jan 2013 (UTC) (UTC)

The best thing about that image is when you notice the creepy badger eyes just to the left of the tree in the flower pot. --Henneyj 21:08, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Oppose - Not as though it really matters, but an alliance? Feels as though we'll next want to host something with the ScavengerHunt extension. As for badges, see (for Monaco skin) below. Ryan PM 06:48, January 31, 2013 (UTC) http://images.wikia.com/runescape/images/badges/0/03/1724320.png

I never understood the point of advertising other wikis on a wiki. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 18:41, January 31, 2013 (UTC)
Wikia wants their lesser wikis to have a chance at not completely sucking. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 18:49, January 31, 2013 (UTC)
I always get the same wiki ads at the bottom of my screen on my iphone. Always the same ones, always games that I have never heard of. ._. I guess that's a noble cause though. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 18:54, January 31, 2013 (UTC)
Also agreed. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 18:49, January 31, 2013 (UTC)
wat - I was going to write "badge badgers" in order to make a text wall the size of the United States Bill of Rights, but I'm a thousand percent sure even that wouldn't be taken seriously.

Speaking of seriousness, this sucks on ice. 7kyt1iT.gif --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko) 20:33, January 31, 2013 (UTC)
