This is an area for organising the development of the IF Wiki, in the spirit of the original Wikipedia Community Portal. (IFWiki runs MediaWiki, the Wikipedia software, but we are not otherwise affiliated.)

To Do

Main article: IFWiki:To-do list

These are tasks that we're working on in the wiki.

We're always looking for content about IF games, old and new, of course.

But March (2007) might be a good time to step back and review the state of IFWiki so far, and see if we're on track. Or maybe experiment with new types of content. Or just try to reduce the number of red links where we find them. Maybe even look at that old dusty To-do list that's up there.

  • PreobrajenskySuka1 spammed Talk:Main Page on May 2, 2007. No obvious links this time, but still spam.
  • Hahawudi spammed Talk:Main Page on May 16, 2007.
  • Hahasite spammed Talk:Main Page May 24, 2007. This was just a single link embedded within legitimate content; one might call this stealth spam.

  • Zhangpeng created five new pages (including his/her own user page) filled with Chinese spam links on June 14, 2007.

  • Asdd created IFWiki:Asdd as a Chinese spam page on July 23, 2007.
  • XDRS created IFWiki:1314 as a Chinese spam page on July 24, 2007. Perhaps the same guy as Xdrs a couple lines up?

  • WHERE replaced the content of The Adventures of Bobo the Monkey with a mock blurb of info, supposedly about Bobo the Monkey, on Nov 29, 2007. (Because this is vandalism, I blcoked WHERE's account, but on the off-chance that it was meant in fun instead of malice, the block is only 3 months instead of infinite. -- David Welbourn 11:35, 30 November 2007 (PST))
  • Dzhtraviphe spammed Talk:Main Page on Dec 07, 2007. Only a teeny bit o' spam, but still spam.
  • Zhdinmiv created a Chinese spam page on Dec 19, 2007.


IFWiki uses many categories to organize pages. The top-level category is Basics.

Some notable categories are:

This is an automatically generated list of categories.


This is an automatically generated list of IFWiki user accounts. Names in red have created user accounts but have not created their user page.

Wanted Pages

This is an automatically generated list of pages that have been named in links, but not yet created. Go have at them. Note, some of these may be misspellings, you may want to modify the link in that case, others may be correct alternative spellings/namings or concepts which could be merged, in which case creating a redirect is probably best. Please make sure a page does not exist before you create a new one.

Technical Problems

If you have a technical problem with IFWiki, please ask about it on the IFWiki talk:Community Portal page. It may take time for someone knowledgable with tech stuff to respond though, so please be patient.
