Brickipedia:Official Friends/Requests

From Brickipedia, the LEGO Wiki

Official Friends are websites that Brickipedia endorses and links to on its main page.

Making a Request

Before making an official friends request, your site should:

  • Be primarily about LEGO
  • Already have some degree of activity or interest from LEGO fans.

Additionally, since this is intended as a two-way relationship, once an official friend request is approved, you are expected to link to Brickipedia (http://en.brickimedia.org/), and place this link somewhere relatively easy to find on your site. Failure to do so is likely to have your official friend status revoked.

To make a request, please copy the following code, fill out the appropriate sections and add it to the bottom of the page. Please note that you should only make a request if you are an owner, administrator, or webmaster of a site, and have the site's approval to make such a request.

Voting

Voting will last for a period of two weeks. For a request to pass, it must be supported by the majority of voters.

BrickFilms.com

So, BrickFilms Wiki got merged into a much bigger site that's been existing for a good 15 years and counting (http://brickfilms.wikia.com/wiki/Template:Sidebar-WikiNews). I think that means we need to re-request an affliation so I'm putting this up here. Codyn329 (talk) 03:44, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

  2. No point in linking to a dead site, this new site seems really good NovaHawk 03:50, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

  • It'd be really cool if that it succeeds, and we build a great relationship with BrickFilms, that somehow we could do community to community collabs to help build videos for a Brickipedia YouTube channel? Just a thought (it'd be amazing if that could happen though) Codyn329 (talk) 02:53, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
    • I kinda did this backwards actually, since the people from /that/ site should be requesting. I'll try to contact BoatsAreRockable or another person to see if this affliation could work out. Codyn329 (talk) 02:54, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
      • @SamanthaNguyen: Just wondering did anything ever happen with this? NovaHawk 11:31, 10 November 2016 (UTC)
        • Nope, sorry :( Totally forgot about that actually, I'll see if I can try contacting them and see what they think. SamanthaNguyen (talk) 21:57, 11 November 2016 (UTC)
  • Hi there, I'm from the Brickfilms Wiki. Despite our name, we aren't actually related to brickfilms.com and certainly haven't merged with them. Brickfilms are just a name for the LEGO animations we like to make. Most of our admins are actually active on bricksinmotion.com instead of brickfilms.com because back in 2008 there was quite a bit drama in our community that caused a mass migration to Bricks in Motion. I don't have an official role on either of the 2 websites but nevertheless I'd strongly encourage you reach out to both of them if you want to expand your Official Friends. --BoatsAreRockable (talk) 00:37, 06 December 2016 (UTC)
    • Thanks for clearing that up! I'll have to do that this week. I'm thinking that I have to fill out http://brickfilms.com/advertise-with-us/ (since both parties would have to advertise the other site on their own site), and I don't think I happen to be particularly comfortable signing it since it asks for some personal information. Also, I'm only 16, so. :P Would an older/other administrator on here be comfortable signing a form? (I wish they had some sort of tooltips that explain why they're asking for some of the stuff..) SamanthaNguyen (talk) 03:25, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
      • The "Contact Us" page looks slightly more promising (but only slightly, as the default dummy data hasn't been replaced with more accurate data); at least it doesn't have a broken CAPTCHA and it doesn't ask for too personal info. --Jack Phoenix (talk) 09:59, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

  • Would we be linked back to anywhere on Pley's site? --ToaMeiko (talk) 22:55, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
    • There would be a link from Brickipedia to Pley's homepage and Brickipedia would be added to Pley's Partners Page which would have Brickipedia's Logo, description, and a link to Brickipedia Unsigned comment by ‎50.136.242.16 (talk • contribs).
      • Can I get a link to this page? I can't seem to find it easily on the site, and I'd like to see what other LEGO sites and communities are affiliated as partners. --ToaMeiko (talk) 21:45, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
  • I also have a pending request for comment on the LEGO Ambassador Network in regard to Pley and this official friend request, seeing as 7 months ago there was a discussion regarding Pley's violation of LEGO IP rights. I'd like to have a response to my request for comment on LAN before I make a vote here. As I said on LAN, "don't want to oppose their request, as Brickipedia likes to associate and be present in all areas of the LEGO fandom, seeing as we treat ourselves as a valuable reference to any type of LEGO fan .... but I'm hesitant to do so if Pley has a bad image in the LEGO Group's eyes." --ToaMeiko (talk) 21:50, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
    • Any responses on your comment at LAN? Codyn329 (talk) 04:19, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

LEGO Batman Wiki

We need more of a community, and I think LBW and Brickipedia could both benefit from the partnership. Jello chitchat! 23:38, 9 November 2016 (UTC)
