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.

Vandalism in 2009

  • Blackjack created A day in life with inappropriate content, insulting that game's author, on Apr 04, 2009.
  • NovilIzelr spammed 9:05 on May 21, 2009.
  • DronrEldel spammed The Bible Retold on May 22, 2009.
  • Several users with names in the format "[2-or-3-digit number] buy [something]" created spam user pages for themselves on June 8, 2009. Possibly this was a bot spamming us. They bothered us for several days.
  • Mdjww created a Runescape-based page in early July. Not in English, though.
  • OloorTacoo and DomleToout spammed The Bible Retold and 9:05 respectively on July 9, 2009. Hm, those pages were spammed in May. Also, the technique was to add the spam then delete it; is it enough for them that it's in the page's history?

Vandalism in 2008

  • SergeyLepux spammed Talk:Corey W. Arnett on Feb 20, 2008.
  • Levelmyth pro created a spam page on Feb 27, 2008.
  • Mingtian created two spam pages on Feb 28, 2008.
  • Wym888 created a Chinese spam page on April 18, 2008.
  • Wymin888 created two Chinese spam pages on June 11, 2008. Hmmmm.
  • LaaccAloue spammed Talk:Action twice on Nov 8 or 9, 2008.
  • RactrOcc4t created a one-word nonsense or spam page on Dec 2, 2008. Apparently, it's a spam bot, who continued to spam us from Dec 10 to Dec 16. Sigh.
  • LetocHiacc spammed 9:05 and LirelChiro spammed The Bible Retold on Dec 19, 2008. Looks like it's still the same bot we've been seeing since November.

Categories

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.

Users

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.
