Hi! I'm an Italian webmistress of the site "Eyes on Final Fantasy". We have recently find THIS "Eyes on Final Fantasy" in english language, thanks to King Bahamut.
We’d like to clarify some details. First of all, the site name. Our choice has been inspired by the song “Eyes On Me”, from Final Fantasy 8, and we’ve discovered the existance of this site with the same name only with King Bahamut’s post. A few weeks ago we also started the steps necessary to register the domain http://www.eyesonff.it, which is going to be activated soon, and the request can’t be revoked at this point.
We also want to underline that our site has completely different material and layout from yours, and is written only in Italian, so we can’t “steal” users from your site.
To solve this embarassing situation, I propose to affiliate our two sites, with the same name but keeping different contents and complete authonomy in the editing.

If the staff want accept, please reply or send an e-mail to ffgstaff@yahoo.it

Good luck for your site!
LadyRinoa

Heh, this site and that site found each other at near enough the same time :p

I think Feedback would be a better place for this anyway, and someone that's actually in charge of the front site can answer :p

Yeah. I've already registered there at their forums, the only problem is I don't speak Italian. :( Oh well. I can say stuff like "Grazi" to everyone. That's "thank you", right? It's amazing what you can learn from the movie "Life is Beautiful."

Hi, Im the webasterof Abyss of Woe forums, we support online gaming, anime, and Square-enix titles, I think AoW and EoFF should be affiliated.

I like the idea of an EoFF-EoFF affiliation. If EoFF is anything, it's multicultural. It'd be great to have an Italian sister-site. That's my 3 cents.

Make a stickied poll and ask the general populace what they think.

It's up to Sean really, or someone else that knows anything about doing something like that. I sure don't, I'm not even sure what affiliated sites mean.

Well, an affiliation with this site probably won't mean all THAT much, as the only person who seemed to understand the topic I made in their Generale forum was their webmistress (I've never heard that term before), LadyRinoa. It seems that their forum is dominated by a few members: her, "Eko the Best", and "Bilancia." Atleast that's what I read; once again, I can only say 'spaghetti' and 'lasagna' in Italian. :p I'm not sure if anyone there can speak a whole lot of English, atleast to come speak here, where everybody does, besides the few random German threads that eest makes.

It is Cid's call, but I actually think that it would be a pretty cool thing to do. On an internet where people jump to lawsuit at the drop of a hat, it would be nice to stand out as the ones who just say "Hey, coincidence. That's cool," just like people did before the world went sue-happy, and it would also make us the ones who celebrate common ground in a world plagued by "ethnic cleansing" between nigh-identical cultures (i.e., the Balkans. Michael Ignatieff speaks well of the "Narcissism of Minor Difference" in The Warrior's Honor)

My advice is to show everybody that we're more grown up than the rest of the internet.

(That, or just kill them all :p)

I've edit my first post for clarify some things. I hope you understand my message, I've take my reply from "eyesonff.cjb.net" topic, written by CID.

I mean, sure, I've seen plenty of advanced legalese in these empty threats (especially as a member of these boards for the past four+ years [lolz]), but it's never been more than empty threats. Not in the Internet I know.

Mikerowesoft.com. Of course he eventually gave in and probably had Lionel Hutz as a lawyer. Nonetheless, the point is, annoy big companies as much as you can by buying Internet domains that resemble theirs. :)

I would agree with that, but I hardly consider this to be a "small-time" website anymore.

I'm using this model: Small websites are like...EoFF, with however many thousands of pageviews a day, a few thousand forum members, and a webmaster with a dayjob. Medium would be, like, Something Awful. Millions or whatever page views, something like thirty thousand forum members, and a webmaster whose job is "Webmaster of SoomethingAwful.com." Big is, ahh, Slashdot, which gets referenced in Neil Gaiman comics. :) Anything bigger (Amazon, Microsoft) or smaller (smallcave, whatever) is not on the scale. It kind of makes sense. Anyway, it's an interesting way of thinking about things.

edit: I totally realize that I'm going to read this post again next week and decide that I'm full of shite.

Heh heh...On their board, someone replied to my thread, and used the term "mammamia!" lmao! I didn't know that people actually used that term!

Here's my translation of it without speaking a word of Italian.

MT (that's another guy) somehow "divinely" spoke in English...holy crap!

How's that, Del? Ask Johnny Tightlips how that translation is.

"The thing that you dared to pick up sentences and words and lazily altered them with an automatic Italian-to-English translator... all of the above shows evident proof of your ignorance and cannot be backed up by any legittimate reason. "


OH GOD WE DON'T KNOW THEIR LANGUAGE WE MUST BE EVIL RACIST NAZI TYPES


The fact that you did not do the translation correctly is the greatest insult of all...

In case you didn't understand Doomgaze's post:

Indeed I thought differently, I reckoned initially that you would have comprehended that everything happened due to a mere coincidence. Your precious work will not be stolen and undoubtedly no one desires to emulate you in any form. The thing that you dared to pick up sentences and words and lazily altered them with an automatic Italian-to-English translator, the fact that you consequently made fun of our efforts, without even expressing proper judgements on the actual contents that this website offers, AND the evidence that you arrogantly brought up silly and offensive words on your forums, all of the above shows evident proof of your ignorance and cannot be backed up by any legittimate reason.

Yes, because apparently we are very tolerant of other countries, as we have people from 30 different countries. However, we despise Italian people, simply because they're Italian. The only person here that apparently likes Italian people is Del, but that's because his family will gun him down with their Tommyguns if he doesn't.[/sarcasm]

Raistlin actually founded EoFF in 1942 to undermine Italian morale. True story. He and RSL got the Congressional Medal of Honor for it.

Yeah, I know, I was reading about that in my history book yesterday. That's really why Italy surrendered.
