Copyright issues

You can't legally bring stuff in from WiiLi unless you specifically put this wiki under the GFDL as well. That, or contact every contributor to every article that you bring over here and acquire their permission. I's also a good idea just because everyone likes free licenses (hehe). So... are you going to? 24.76.102.248 18:29, 9 December 2006 (CST)

Furthermore, you normally have to attribute anything you copy to the people who edited it. Either listing the last six contributors (talk page, HTML comment, edit summary, wherever), or pasting a copy of the whole article history. 24.76.102.248 18:30, 9 December 2006 (CST)

done, I thought I had selected the gfdl when I set up the wiki but I guess I didn't

Double work?

Hi, sorry if it sounds debasing for you, it isn't intended that way, but: Your wiki and the WiiLi-wiki seem both to have the same target or at least work on very similar topics. As you have taken some of the pages from WiiLi as the base of your work and added quite a bit of technical and other information to it the question arises for me if it wouldn't be an enhancement for both WiiLi and WiiBrew if they merged their infos and continued to work on a single database? Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Best regards,

Wiili

To me, wiili is a similar but different beast. Wiili attracts a lot of people looking for handouts and free games with all of the digg and /. popularity. This wiki is much more technical in nature, and from what I can see a lot more development goes on here. They seem to take a lot of our information and dumb it down for the average user anyways, so a merger really wouldn't add any more information to their wiki. I can see the benefits of a merger but I can't put up with a bunch of people trying to sound like they know what they're talking about. It's not going to happen any time in the near future; these wiki's serve two different purposes and so need to be separate. -Ch0p

Advertising

Any chances you can get rid of the advertising? THat's one of the main reasons for me to use this wiki instead of Wiili. Please remove the adds, perhaps we can donate instead.

I'm currently at $77 and when it hits $100 and finally rolls over into my bank account I'll be removing the ads. I'd guessing it will be about 2-3 months before that happens. I just got a hosting bill for $217 and I currently am without a job so hopefully you'll put up with the single unobtrusive ad for another few months while I work something out.

Wiki work

Can you please install the parser functions extension? Some soon to be imported templates makes use of it and look really badly broken without it.--henke37 04:06, 17 February 2008 (PST)
