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 Alerts

Main article: IFWiki:Vandalism. Previous years: IFWiki:Vandalism/Archive 1 (2005–2008)

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. UPDATE: We keep attempting to block these guys through June, July, August, but they keep mutating their attack.
  • 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?
  • LaeltRelro spammed 9:05, CnaolOrelc spammed The Bible Retold on Aug 18, 2009, same way as it was done in July. (I don't get it. What's special about those two pages in particular?)
  • LazelEltor spammed David Fillmore on Sept 2, 2009, again via two edits: one to add the spam, and the second to delete it.

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.
