Merging ideas[edit source]

Hi. I have recently been working on two wikis (Fictional Characters, Fictional Species), and planning a third (Fictional Geography). However, I realised that your wiki could, potentially, encompass all of the contents of mine. So I was wondering if you would be interested in merging them? Mine was intended to focus more on films, video games, anime, etc. (there's hardly any content yet) whereas I find yours to be more centred around literature. However, if we combined them it would bring a good balance. What do you say? --Kyoo Moo 12:04, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Hi, Kyoo Moo. I'm perfectly happy with the idea of merging the Fiction Encyclopedia with the Fictional Characters wiki and Fictional Species wiki provided that an in-universe perspective is used in the main body of all articles, except in specific sections. The whole purpose of the Fiction Encyclopedia is to provide info on all fiction but from an in-universe perspective. The current featured article on the Fictional Characters wiki is in an in-universe perspective, though others are not. The same is true of the Fictional Species wiki. The "elf" article (for example) refers to Tolkien and public perception of elves. But elves would be considered "real" in the Fiction Encyclopedia, so it doesn't really do to talk about writers and public perception. Content concerning characters, places and species from anime, movies, video games and comics is perfectly acceptable in the Fiction Encyclopedia, though I've personally been focusing on literature at the moment. In short, I think it's a good idea to merge these wikis so long as we're both on the same page with regards to the in-universe style. Writing from an out-of-universe perspective, however, can be included in an "out-of-universe" or "behind the scenes" section in each article. --Theodulus Odovacar 20:00, 10 July 2008 (UTC)
