I applaud the Sims Wiki for its numerous linked wikis in other languages. However one (or three!) may have slipped your eyes.

Evidently a Finnish Sims Wiki is in high demand. There's three!

I would recommend interlanguage linking your wiki and the other languages of your wiki to one of these wikis. You can only choose to interlanguage link one wiki to a fi: prefix. At the moment the first one has the most pages (compare to this and this). You might want to choose that one. That way it can grow and be exposed to more potential users.

If I had to choose, I'd pick the the first one as the other two don't seem to be developed well. I've never been involved in interwiki language before, so I'd like to know how others think first. Nikel Talk Vote! 05:25, October 16, 2012 (UTC)
Just like a shelter full of puppies and Mom says you can only have one, right? In any case, ignorance of existing wikis will breed more wikis, so interlanguage linking them will be a great way to let one establish itself as the premier. Whoever requests the link, remember to get the other languages connected too. Elecbullet (talk) 05:42, October 16, 2012 (UTC)
I'll also go with the first one per what Nikel said. Furthermore, the MediaWiki software would automatically use fi.sims.wikia.com as the interwiki link based on site structure and all that. Seeing as it's the most developed, it would make sense to use that site on both a technical and beneficial approach. Lost Labyrinth Flag united kingdom england (c)(b) 19:24, October 16, 2012 (UTC)
As much as I love having symmetrical URLs (I emailed Wikia to have the Polish Wolfenstein Wiki changed to match my English wiki) we should note that any URL can be interlanguage linked. Having the support of two Sims Wiki admins, though, I have sent in a request for the linking. Once that goes through, eladkse is one fast foo All Sims wikis should be linkable, and you can put the fi: link on the Main Page.
By the way, the link to pt.sims.wikia.com on your Main Page redirects to pt-br.sims.wikia.com, which is also linked right below it. Don't know if you're aware of that or not. Elecbullet (talk) 21:56, October 16, 2012 (UTC)
