User Editable Pages

There is a section of the wiki which is editable by anyone with an account, this is the resources namespace. You can access this via the three pages on the main menu: Geography, NPCs, Artifacts, Adventures (these relate to four sub-namespaces: Place, NPC, Item, Adventure). Inside these you should add any and all setting material you have developed for use in your adventures.

Whenever you add content in an adventure, you should try to give as much detail as possible on these pages. Other GMs may wish to make use of these people and places later on, and it is these pages they will use to ensure consistency with their version of the NPC or place and yours. This is also why it is important to accurately tag adventures, as it makes it much easier for later GMs to know what has happened up to now. It is always embarrassing to kill off a major bad-guy for the third time…

Creating and Editing Pages

If you have permission to edit a page you will see an “Edit” button in the top-right hand corner. All users have permission to edit their PC pages and Player Request pages. They can also edit anything in the “Resources” namespace, this is used for adventure summares, NPC descriptions, and Geography descriptions.

In order to create a page there are two main methods.
You can edit a page and create a link to the page that you want to create. For example, if you were creating a new NPC page you would type:

[[resources:NPC:Example_NPC|Example NPC]]

The first half of this is the link to the page you are creating, while the second part (everything after the “|”) is how the link will appear on the page. So for example, you might instead want to add a rank to the description, but not the page, incase your NPC gets promoted later:

[[resources:NPC:Example_NPC|Corporal Example NPC]]

The other method is to navigate straight to the page you want to create by typing the address straight into your browser. To do this for the above example you would type in

http://mementomundi.chaosdeathfish.com/resources:NPC:Example_NPC

In either case you will find yourself on a page stating “This page does not exist”. Simply click the “Create” button in the top right hand corner, and start editing your page.

If you want to experiment with editing pages you can use the playground. While this is a good opportunity to experiment with editing the wiki. Traditionally this also doubles as a space for graffiti and humour.

Tagging

The wiki uses tags to help cross index related pieces of information. For example, if someone adds an NPC member of the Graves family, then by adding the tag “family_graves” to the page, that NPC will be listed alongside all the other Graves PCs and NPCs on the Nobility page. As such, it is important to tag as thoroughly and accurately as possible.

When adding a page, have a look at similar pages and see which tags they use. Also, if there is a page which you think should list the one you have added then have a look to see which tags it is looking for. Every page is generated with at least one tag, which will look something like this:

[[Tag>Example An_other_example]]

In this case, the page is tagged with two tags (“Example” and “An_other_example”) and would show up on a page which listed either of them. Any tag using multiple words needs to have underscores used in place of spaces. When a tag is automatically generated from a page title this is not done automatically, and the underscores need to be added manually.

Below you will find a list of all tags which currently exist in the wiki.
