Nice site! Perhaps you should consider hosting some WikiIF as well.
And I figured out that the <nowiki><center></nowiki> tag is turned into <nowiki><div></nowiki> tags and messes with CSS stuff. I removed them. --[[User:David Cornelson|David Cornelson]] 12:10, 15 Jan 2005 (Central Standard Time)

To Gtwade: That feature's already here: [[Special:Listusers]]. I found it by clicking on the Special Pages link over in the "toolbox". -- [[User:Dswxyz|David Welbourn]] 21:25, 15 Feb 2005 (Central Standard Time)

Greetings everyone. I have some time to offer, and am a IF supporter and archiver. Instead of using <nowiki><center></nowiki> tags, try using "align=center" within tags, eg. use <nowiki><h3 align=center>My Title Here</h3> instead of "<center><h3>xyz</h3></center>"</nowiki>

I would suggest two points- make the Community Portal into an active discussion forum. One good forum package is at http://www.invisionboard.com/. Second point- add a short IF community links page, giving credit to well-run websites that link to here, eg. Baf's Guide at http://www.wurb.com/if/ currently links to ifwiki.org. Thanks. regards ;) --[[User:Eric.xyzzy|Eric.xyzzy]] 09:29, 6 Mar 2005 (Central Standard Time)

Nice site! Perhaps you should consider hosting some WikiIF as well. Uncyclopedia has rather stolen the march on this with their [http://uncyclopedia.org/wiki/Zork Zork] [http://uncyclopedia.org/wiki/Game Game]. What do you say the real IF community does something to catch up? --[[User:Nerd42|Nerd42]] 20:01, 1 Nov 2005 (Central Standard Time)
 
* Personally, that's not the sort of thing I'd want on the IFWiki, but that's just me. Incidently, this idea has come up before; see [[Wiki Based Interactive Fiction System]] ([[Talk:Wiki Based Interactive Fiction System|Talk]]). Although now that I look at it again, that's not really the same thing as you're suggesting. -- [[User:Dswxyz|David Welbourn]] 04:21, 2 Nov 2005 (Central Standard Time) (edited)
 
* Well ... all wikiIF pages could have their own namespace so it could be kept seperate from the actual encyclopedia articles ... oh never mind. It's your site, do what you like with it. ;) --[[User:Nerd42|Nerd42]] 16:08, 2 Nov 2005 (Central Standard Time)
 
:by the way, I heard somebody over at wikicities has already suggested having a wikicity entirely devoted to writing WikiIF ... but I don't know if it's actually going to happen. That'd be neat though --[[User:Nerd42|Nerd42]] 11:36, 7 Nov 2005 (Central Standard Time)
 
 
==Porter's Section==
 
Could we have a page for those of us trying to convert old adventures and old adventure systems (e.g. Scott Adams, Magnetic Scrolls ad nauseam - akin to a wiki form of if-legends). As I have a few scribbles of code and notes that may benefit others, but don't fit within any of the if-legends sub-pages. --[[User:dave|David Lodge]] 20:12, 16 Nov 2005 (Greenwich Meantime)
 
* Sure, I don't see any obvious problems with that on the wiki. Go ahead and create them. If there are license issues, make sure you change the license of the relevant pages from the default public domain declaration to something more appropriate. We already have [[:Category:Scott Adams]] and [[:Category:Magnetic Scrolls]] to put pages in. We could also create a Porting category, if that would be useful; we already have a similar category called [[:Category:Rakontointeraktiva]] for Non-English porting efforts. I don't know how to advise you properly on how to name your pages without more details, though. I'm guessing you'll want pages like "Examples of Magnetic Scrolls code", "Magnetic Scrolls to Inform", "Porting advice", and so on. -- [[User:Dswxyz|David Welbourn]] 18:03, 16 Nov 2005 (Central Standard Time)
 
** Okay, What I'll do is add the pages under the publisher section, and then link notes to the Category, I've started with the [[Robico Software]] Section. --[[User:dave|David Lodge]] 19:37, 19 Nov 2005 (Greenwich Meantime)
 
 
==Wikibugs==
 
The login/account creation system seems kinda buggy. I forgot my password so I hit the "Mail me a new password" button, which results in an error message (Error sending mail: mail() [<a href='function.mail'>function.mail</a>]: &quot;sendmail_from&quot; not set in php.ini or custom &quot;From:&quot; header missing)
 
 
Then I tried crreating a new account, but since I was using the same mail address as with my original account, another half page of page occurred (A database error has occurred
 
Query: INSERT INTO `ifwiki_objectcache` (keyname,value,exptime) VALUES('wikidb:messages:Sitenotice','+¶2°RR²?\0','2005-11-30 16:16:54')
 
Function: MediaWikiBagOStuff:_doquery" and so on)
 
 
Anyone willing to fix this? [[User:PDD3|PDD3]] 10:17, 30 Nov 2005 (Central Standard Time)
 
 
I have several tasks on my list and plan to get to this at some point. I don't see anything happening before 2006 though. --[[User:David Cornelson|David Cornelson]] 11:21, 30 Nov 2005 (Central Standard Time)
