    Question Pokémon Central

    Hey guys, I am Afrael, a member of Filb (filb.de and pokewiki.de). Someone over at our wiki noticed that the italian wiki Pokémon Central links to all of the Encyclopedia Pokémonis wikis, without being one of the members itself. As far as I could gather from a brief look, it contains mostly translations of Bulbapedia articles. Just wanted to give you a heads-up, ask whether that wiki is member of EP and if not, what you guys think about it.

    They're the ones we've been trying, over the course of the past half year or so, to contact the rest of EP on. It's been kinda hard since we don't all have a central meeting place thing. We'd like to get them in on things... which the fourth vote coming from you guys has just... allowed.

    So yay. New ItWiki.

    Uh... don't get me wrong. I personally am all for an additional wiki. But I am in no way a representative of pokewiki.de, I am not even an admin over there. I couldn't get in touch with any of our admins for a statement, this is why I came here figuring you guys might be able to tell me faster. This doesn't mean there has been a consensus about ItWiki over at our place, since we learned about it's existence literally hours ago.

    Speaking of interwiki links: TTE, I asked you some time ago whether you know who runs that interwiki link bot on our (de) side. Anything new on that?

    It's the same BulbaBot that runs on our side. (The reason it messes up the order of the links is because it only knows about de, en, fr, and ja. The bot doesn't seem to work for the other languages.)

    Does that mean it won't work with Italian either?

    It's a question of the version of MediaWiki being used, I think.

    Really? Isn´t it important to have an account in the other wikis?

    Well that's the easy part of making a bot. The hard part is the coding. Which Zhen is better at than I am.

    So whether or not a wiki has an interwiki link bot depends on the MediaWiki version? I'm confused, because Pokéteca was upgraded to the latest version a couple of months ago (I would know as I frequent that site), but it doesn't have such a bot.

    I spoke directly with Filb, and he gave the okay.
