The SporeWiki Fiction Universe is a large science-fiction universe set in the 29th century, revolving around the civilisations of the "First Gigaquadrant", a large cluster of the universe composed of the Andromeda Galaxy, the Borealis Galaxy, the Bunsen Galaxy, the Cyrannus Galaxy, the Quadrant Galaxies, the Milky Way Galaxy, the Mirus Galaxy and the Phradox Galaxy.

The Fiction Universe is a collaborative universe made by many users on the wiki. Though the theme of the Fiction Universe is mostly science fiction, fantasy, supernatural and hard science settings are also common. There is generally little pressure or limits for the SporeWiki universe, and it has few rules so there is lots of potential for imagination. However, there are some standards to follow.

History Edit

The wiki has always had fiction and concepts dating back to when it first began (Natrian Empire and Naucean). However, they rarely interacted with each other much. The origins of the SporeWiki universe goes all the way back to the the end of 2008 and the early months of 2009. Some of the empires already existed back then, but they weren't very united, and often adhered directly to the game, instead of interacting with each other. However, Captian Zaco and Wormulon founded a fictional organization called the Seven Starr Alliance, to fight vandals and report community based stuff, as well as fiction. Soon, many users joined, and with the advent of Spore Galactic Adventures, by the end of the summer users were making SSA-related adventures. In the months from then on, fiction became more and more united, especially when The Valader and Xho started one of the first big fictional events on the wiki - The War of Ages.

By early 2010, these fictions were getting very popular, and by the summer of that year, the lore of the SporeWiki fiction universe began to tie all these fictions neatly together. 2010 ended on good terms with the majority of the fiction community, after a turbulent series of months. By the start of 2011, the wiki was home to many weird and wonderful fictions, with the arrival of new fictions and the development of old. In the summer of 2011, a massive attack by the Xhodocto cleanslated the system, destroying all unneeded and unwanted fictions and galaxies. This was an attempt by the community to start the universe anew, with a more efficient system. It was met with a mixed reception, but had many positive effects. One of the longest fictions in the Fiction Universe's history occurred concurrently, the Great Cyrannus War, lasting most of the year.

All in all, 2011 is generally considered a good year for the Wiki's community. Though new members were scarce and the fact that Maxis was being unusually quiet, arguments generally became a thing of the past. 2012 started on a good note for the wiki community, with plans to revive old fictions such as Station Halcyon and the creation of new fictions stories that don't revolve around wars. While this was variably successful, such stories were often more focused on the characters involved than the conflicts, as was one of the aims of the Cleanslate the year before.

With several users going on to higher education, things slowed, but this was countered by an influx of both new and returning users. Without the Xhodocto, the Seven Starr Alliance slowly shifted into the background as new collective factions such as the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus and Andromedan Galactic Commonwealth gained focus. During this year many members of the SporeWiki community formed the Gigaquadrantic Navy on the popular MMO, Star Trek Online.

The following year was rather uneventful for the Fiction Universe at large, marked largely by expansions made to existing fictions and the continuing trend of stories involving both empires and characters alike. However, the lack of large events should not be considered a sign that the wiki was slowing down, with SporeWiki's IRC remaining as busy as ever with people discussing both items related to the universe and unrelated. Interesting fictions created largely in 2013 include the Dark Times, Tantummodo Mortem and the Second Borealis Galactic War, with other fiction styles developing in the Katar Sector simultaneously.

While 2013 would be considered a positive year for the wiki's growth, 2014 would be looked back upon rather negatively, characterised by divisions and splits within the wiki stemming from the so-called Gigaquadrantic Conflicts, with were initially aimed to bring back a large scale, multi-collaborative effort the likes of which last seen during the War of Ages. However, the "GigaConflicts" would fall utterly short of this lofty goal and though some ancillary fictions were considered a success, the legacy of the concept would not be fondly looked back upon by the wiki's community. Toward the end of the year, the level of arguments seemingly died down, with the wiki returning to a state of normalcy. Fictions created during this year include the New Cyrandia Wars and the Great Xonexian Schism, though the level of infighting in the Fiction Universe also led to an increase of interest in SporeWiki's venerable Fantasy Universe, which grew and prospered during the year.

2015 began rather well for the community, eager to mend the wounds created during the previous year. However, the news that Maxis was shut down in March of 2015 added a bitter-sweet aura to the Fiction Universe.

Participating Edit

Rules Edit

As stated above, there are few rules, although the majority of them are common sense. These are not to create needless bureaucracy, but to ensure equality within the universe.

  1. You are required to be be polite and considerate to other users (and if conflict arises, settle the dispute rather than argue). Constructive criticism is okay, but collaboration requires co-operation.
  2. It must not interfere with the article mainspace; do not add references to fiction within it, and put fiction in the correct namespace.
  3. Your empire should not look like the Bad Starter Example, it must be well written, detailed and not overly powerful without any weaknesses in comparison to others (fair basically) before it enters the fiction universe.
  4. Fixed features - Some parts or rules of the universe are "fixed", decided by the community. These are things like 'the Xhodocto are the most powerful empire'. Make sure your fiction doesn't conflict with those constants.
  5. To ensure fairness, you are not permitted to create any more supernatural forms or similarly omnipotent civilizations.
  6. Fanfiction - We allow Fanfiction from other sci-fi's to a certain degree, but they must not be more important than SporeWiki ones. They can be mentioned, but if they are to be included in fiction it must be decided by several users first (like the Imperial Civil War, and attempt to kill them off).
  7. You cannot create new galaxies, use the Milky Way, Cyrannus, Quadrants, Mirus, Andromeda, Bunsen or Borealis galaxies as your beginner location. However, if you want to colonize a galaxy that's not the Milky Way, don't forget to ask the galaxy's owner for permission.
  8. There is a colony limit of approximately twenty million inhabited star systems that your empire can inhabit. This is implemented as to make the Fiction Universe fairer for all users. Note that this extends across the entire fiction universe, and isn't simply limited to the First Gigaquadrant.
  9. You are not allowed to take fiction claimed by someone else as your own unless the owner deliberately gives it to you. When making new fiction, make sure you are not doing something already done by someone else.
  10. You are not permitted to mention other users' fiction within your own without seeking their permission first. For instance, claiming your fiction has attacked, destroyed or has relationships with another one by the creator's back are not legal. This does not apply to shared fiction like Humanity and the Grox Empire.
  11. When using the Universal Discussion Board, keep civil. Do not edit or delete messages made by other users, unless you have their permission.

TriviaEdit

  • Fictions do not have to be a part of the SporeWiki Fiction universe. As a simple rule, a fiction is set in it's own universe until the point where the creator contacts or responds to contact from other fictions. Very old fiction on the wiki is either considered in another universe, or simply part of mythology from ancient times. If a user's fiction is not compatible with this universe, then it exists in its own domain. You are free to make a fiction about a universe crossing if you are ready to be in the main universe.
  • Users can do what they like with subpages of their userpage, provided that their content is not offensive. Some of these are collaborative projects (which you might need permission to join in), such as User:TheImperios/DoW Stuff/Battle for the Hive City. If you are thinking of creating one these, make it a subpage.
