Hi! I like to look for foreign language wikis that haven't had interlanguage links made to their English counterparts. I've had such a look for Bakugan wikis, and here's what I've found.

The wikis, by language

First I begin with wikis in languages for which interlanguage links do properly exist to this wiki. No action is necessary, good!

Sometimes there's more than one wiki in a language (see more by clicking "Show all"). In such cases only the first is linked, and no others are eligible for linking without unlinking the first one.

Unlinked wikis

These wikis are in languages for which no interlanguage links exist to this wiki. I strongly recommend you have them made!

Sometimes there's more than one wiki in a language (see more by clicking "Show all"). In such cases only one is eligible for linking: my suggestion is highlighted.

Itty bitty wikis

These wikis are not linked, but they are too small for me to advocate you do that.

What I propose

I'd like to have interlanguage links made between this wiki and all the highlighted wikis in the "Unlinked wikis" section. I'd also like to recursively create links between each of the foreign wikis (such as DE-to-ES rather than DE-to-EN or ES-to-EN). This will basically make them the official foreign-language counterparts to this wiki, and enable the addition of links to individual articles to designate their foreign-language equivalents (see the bottom of the Main Page for an example).

This would be great for the foreign-language wikis and for the international Bakugan community. I'm an admin over at Community Central so I can set up the links for you, but I'd like to get some kind of community support first.

What do you think? Can I link the wikis? Elecbullet (talk) 04:11, May 27, 2013 (UTC)

I should have been more clear. The links are not enabled: that is, if I type [[de:]] it will create a perfectly good link to the German wiki, but [[tr:]] will not. I'd like to have links enabled to all of the unlinked wikis. Elecbullet (talk) 17:42, May 27, 2013 (UTC)
That's fine by me. The other two Admins haven't come on or haven't said anything, so I think it should be okay. --DQ13 ~ In death, in life. 17:50, May 27, 2013 (UTC)
I'll give it a little time, maybe a day or so, for anyone else to speak out, then I'll send in my pseudo-request (pseudo because I can complete it myself). I'll recursively link this wiki and all the bold-faced, highlighted wikis (excluding itty bitty ones). Elecbullet (talk) 02:40, May 28, 2013 (UTC)

I sent in my pseudo-request and fulfilled it myself; you can see it at w:Project:Interlanguage link requests#Bakugan Wiki. Woot!

An important step would be to add the links to the Main Page. To do that, just paste this literally anywhere on the page:

<!-- Interlanguage links -->
[[de:]] [[es:]] [[fr:]] [[it:]] [[ja:]] [[pl:]] [[pt:]] [[nl:]] [[pt-br:]] [[ro:]] [[ru:]] [[tr:]] [[vi:]]

They won't show up in the content area but will instead be displayed at the bottom of the page in the "Languages" section. Elecbullet (talk) 06:01, May 31, 2013 (UTC)

Alright, doing it now. --DQ13 ~ In death, in life. 22:03, May 31, 2013 (UTC)
