I'm the head admin of Equestripedia, a wiki for My Little Pony. Since MLP and Filly have similar aesthetics (both being based off magical equines), and since the Filly cartoon just came out not to long ago, I was wondering if you guys would be interested in an affiliation or partnership of any kind.
This Wikia's actually fairly established as Filly Funtasia was announced long before its eventual release, and the Wikia became a hub for the extensive toy lore in the meantime, so I think there's a limit to how much we could partner, but if you have any ideas feel free to share them.
Yeah, I was surprised by that. Prior to visiting this place, I assumed it was jut cartoon series that got delayed a lot, didn't know it was a toy brand since 2006.
Anywho. I just added the wiki to our affiliate pages. When I finally get off my lazy butt eventually get around to writing an article for Filly on our wiki, I'll be sure to link the articles here whenever I can. I hope you don't mind that I just used the logo for the Filly brand, since you guys don't seem to have a logo of your own yet.
I gotcha. Well, don't worry about that stuff, just anything you feel appropriate, like a link to us on your main-page if you're still interested in the affiliation. I was thinking of making a template similar to the one on Bulbapedia for affiliates for a "Pony wikis" thing, so if you're interested in something like that on the front page here, feel free to ask.
Well anyway. Never hesitate to ask me if you need any help or assistance with anything. I'm good with templates, CSS and most things involving wiki design and code.
(I had already typed a reply, but it seems not to have sent?)
Having a horse-show alliance like that Nintendo one sounds really cool! I'd love for the Filly wiki to be part of that. Looking around, there are several other animated-horse wikis that could joint, too (e.g. 'Princess Gwenevere and the Jewel Riders' and 'Horseland').
Yeah, Wikia isn't the best about that. Had it eat a few of my messages in the past too.
The staff for the Princess Gwenevere wiki haven't been active since 2017 but the admin for the Horseland wiki is somewhat active on other wikis. I'll be sure to shoot them some messages, and also message the admins for the Phoebe and her Unicorn wiki and some of the other MLP Wikis (My Little Wiki, FIM Wiki, MLP Fanart wiki, EG Wiki, Tales wiki, etc)
While making some edits to the Cloud Boat page, I took note that just about every single mention of the boat on the officially-launched version of the Filly Stars MyFilly page, calls it the Star Boat. All four Filly Twilight bios, the Filly Tree page on the Twilights, and on the Filly Kingdom listing of the boat (after they had fixed the "Filly Kingdom" error). And frankly, I can't at the time of writing remember what sources we used to have on it being called the Cloud Boat, especially not any English-language sources.
It's all about the consequences. Say you rename a page - what would the consequences of that action be? Confusion among the readers, mostly, but it's not a fundamental change - it's a prefix to "boat". Boats are quite a unique thing in Filly in general, since only two exist.
Personally, Star Boat sounds more intuitive since its from Star series. Cloud Boat reminds me of Scarlet's ship since it's usually seen among the clouds.
So if the official stuff is consistent, sure, renaming would be good.
The direct translation from German was "Cloud Boat" and there were a couple of problems with the English page when it first appeared, so I was hopeful "Star Boat" would turn out to be one of them (as I recall, the site originally had some variations on that too; I think "Star Ship" appeared somewhere).
Only real reason I was hopeful is because it's Star-everything with the locations, which is a tad samey, but by this point it's clear they're sticking with that, so I approve of the redirect!
