A template in limbo: new section
Hello~ I'm Darknesslover5000, and I'm here to bring up a small proposition. I was originally going to take this to Archaic, as he seems to be the head Honchcrow around here, but I saw he doesn't answer talk page messages and it was advised to take concerns to the Editor-in-Chief, which, as it appears, is you. I'm here to ask, what does it take for Bulbapedia to partner with a fanfiction wiki? It's generally accepted that this is one of the better Pokémon sites around, and my friend and I recently moved our fanfiction wiki, [http://pikafanon.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Main_Page Pika-Fanon], to the Shout Wiki, which isn't as well known as Wikia in general. As such, we were wondering if we could, in some way, partner our wiki with Bulbapedia. We already strive to imitate this wiki in terms of appearance, and, from my previous experience here, there have been users with an interest in making their own characters and storylines. If you could please get back to me, it would be most appreciated! --[[User:Darknesslover5000|Darknesslover5000]] ([[User talk:Darknesslover5000|talk]]) 21:08, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
:I would say your best bet would be to contact Archaic and the head of the Writer's Workshop (The fanfiction section of our forums) by PM on the forums. I should also note that while we cannot stop you making things appear visually similar, you ''must not'' directly copy our pages, including templates. Your wiki is licensed as Public Domain (which I should note is strange for a fanfiction wiki - posting a fanfic there forfeits all ownership rights to it). Our wiki is licensed under the Creative commons by-nc-sa 2.5 license, which requires any sharing to be done with attribution (which is lacking) and under the same license (which it is not). As a result I must insist you remove all content taken from Bulbapedia. <span class="sc">[[User:Werdnae|<span style="color:#2D4B98;">Werdnae</span>]]</span> <small>[[User talk:Werdnae|<span style="color:#009000;">(talk)</span>]]</small> 20:20, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
 
== A template in limbo ==
 
Mr. Editor-in-chief of the Editorial Board, I have an issue I need solved. [[User talk:Umeko#A J/E lyrics template|For the past 3 months]], I've been hoping that {{u|Umeko}} would find time to approve my Japanese/English lyrics template for songs. She has responded to periodic PMs, but she has many things on her plate at present, and she has not so far had the time to give the template a good look.
 
I really don't want to wait on Umeko indefinitely. Three months is quite a long enough wait for me. If Umeko can't manage it, someone else should be able to make this decision. I'd like for you (or someone) to vet and (if it's deserving) approve the template in Umeko's stead. [[User:Tiddlywinks|Tiddlywinks]] ([[User talk:Tiddlywinks|talk]]) 03:24, 3 February 2014 (UTC)
