Welcome to 1d4chan, a site devoted to the description and archival of all sorts of things interesting and relevant to /tg/, including articles on fa/tg/uy culture, memes particular to (or at least commonly used on) /tg/, games and systems played by its browsers, interesting fluff thereof, and writefaggotry posted to the board. In addition to this, users are free to use the wiki to store information about online campaigns they are running, or as a platform for collaborative effort on homebrewn game systems or settings.

The wiki is run and administrated by Wikifag, although his time is limited and he cannot monitor it non-stop. If an issue has arisen which you believe needs immediate attention (a prominent example would be if the site has gone down or is extremely sluggish, as it may be some time before he notices, or someone has uploaded illegal material to the server) then he can be reached by emailing wikifag [at] gmail [dot] com.

Conduct

  • 1d4chan is NOT for pages dedicated to specific browsers of /tg/, namefag or tripfag, regardless of how well-known or liked/disliked they are. The only exception to this is the drawfag page, which may list known drawfags and describe their usual subject matter. Please refrain from qualitative analysis of a given drawfag's talents or personality, as drama will inevitably ensue.
  • If you find yourself in an edit war or anything similar with another user, discuss the issue on the article's talk page. If you observe a dispute over an article and have an opinion one way or the other about it, comment on the discussion. Wikifag prefers to get input from as many people as possible before he has to make some sort of administrative decision about a given issue.
  • If you intend to use the wiki as storage for pages about your campaign, your main page should be at Campaign:Name and other related pages should be at Campaign:Name/Stuff. Your pages should also link to each other to avoid them appearing on the orphaned pages list. Wikifag won't punish users for forgetting to do this, but it helps keep the wiki tidy!
  • If you find a page that needs deleting, put the {{deletion}} template on it (by including that markup at the top of the page) and it will be added to the deletion category. Pages that should be deleted are pages for campaigns that are no longer running or no longer needed for that campaign, and pages of very low quality or subject matter unrelated to /tg/. Note that the criteria for "related to /tg/" is somewhat lax, and well-written pages that justify even a tangential relation to /tg/ are likely to be allowed to remain.

Useful Things You Can Do

Wikis aren't self-cleaning, unfortunately. If you have free time and nothing better to do with it, checking these lists and fixing up the problems with pages contained therein is extremely helpful.

  • Broken Redirects - Find out what page they're meant to redirect to and fix it, or else slap a {{deletion}} on the page if they're truly useless.
  • Dead-end Pages - Dead-end pages have no links to other pages in the wiki, ruining the browsing experience. Fix them up so that important words link to their relevant pages, and consider adding relevant "See Also" entries.
  • Double Redirects - Double redirects are redundant. Fix them so that the first redirect goes to the intended page.
  • Orphaned Pages - Orphaned pages are those which are not linked to by any other page and are thus unlikely to be found by a browsing user. Consider adding them to the See Also section of relevant pages, and making links to the page in the main text of other articles.
  • [[::Category:Stubs|Stubs]] - Stubs are pages that are too short to do justice to their subject material. Expand them.
  • Wanted Pages - Wanted pages are linked to by other pages but don't yet exist. Create them, even if all you write is a short stub, as others are more likely to flesh out a page properly once it actually exists (but make sure that the page doesn't already exist under a slightly different name first).
