Old conversations have been moved aside to keep this page less cluttered:

Why are we not popping up on search engines?[edit]

Ever since the return this site has been appearing on fewer and fewer search engines to the point that we don't even show up on Duck Duck Go anymore. Duck Duck motherfucking Go. Did we do something to piss off every single search engine in existence? Crazy Cryptek (talk) 20:54, 9 June 2021 (UTC)

When i asked about this site at google tech support they said 1d4chan intentionally prevents indexation.
maybe " User-agent: ia_archiver Disallow: /" in robots.txt did that? --Kotenok2000 (talk) 00:44, 17 July 2021 (UTC)
They say this code stops google from indexing. "<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow"/>" Kotenok2000 (talk) 16:40, 18 July 2021 (UTC)
Why the fuck do we have that code then? 14:48, 27 July 2021 (UTC)
As Root explained in the Discord, this site is not what he wants people to see as the first result when they google their new hobbies for the first time. Someone else. (talk) 15:02, 27 July 2021 (UTC)
Than that code should be on the main pages of all the tabletop games instead. Valvatorez (talk), 27 July 2021 (UTC)
That is not how search engines work. Someone else. (talk) 16:43, 27 July 2021 (UTC)

So how the hell will we get and maintain new users then? I thought the site died out completely because of that disappearance.--Newerfag (talk) 05:34, 28 November 2021 (UTC)

If you go on the discord and talk to root, that's basically his intention. He's not going to shut it down, but he kinda wants it to die. --Piroko (talk) 05:46, 28 November 2021 (UTC)
Eh, direct links and embeds to the site still work and I've seen them posted in plenty of sites and forums (both old and recent). Also, root posted in the Discord a while back stating that site analytics have been stable (10K uniques a day, 110 a month, roughly) post-delisting. While I may not entirely agree with root's reasons for delisting the site (and honestly think it's a little overblown as an issue), I think the site should be okay (new users-wise, at least) so long as people keep finding and following links to here. --Ow, My Sanity. (talk) 20:52, 30 November 2021 (UTC)
Why are you faggots tolerating that then. kick the retard out. 16:12, 5 December 2021 (UTC)
I really don't think we can kick him off a site he runs and pays for. Forking isn't going to get off the ground because this, at worst, is a storm in a teacup which most people don't care about. If you're really this butthurt over root delisting the site, try and convince him to do otherwise. --Ow, My Sanity. (talk) 17:06, 5 December 2021 (UTC)

Well this is fucking bullshit. Either close the site if you want it down, or don't, but stop pussying around. It's like a mirror of current state of /tg/ - everyone trying to kill it, with a silent approval from the moderation. Stop pussying around and either close 1d4 for good and if not, restore it to search engines. 01:42, 29 November 2021 (UTC)

Agreed! Jannies are ALWAYS the problem. In line with the complaint about Fandom Wiki botscrapers below, I clicked on a search result for what I assumed was a link to an article here, only to end up on the loathsome mirror! A moment before I submitted a complaint to Google about upranking it over the actual wiki, I came here to see if there was already a furor, only to discover Root did this INTENTIONALLY!? Fix your shit, if you don't, people are going to be funneled into that septic tank. 2600:1700:DA90:2AB0:24F8:1DB:C6EE:AA29 13:11, 19 January 2022 (UTC)
Jannies? What? What janitors do you think this site has, new guy? Someone else. (talk) 13:25, 19 January 2022 (UTC)
Yes, he did it deliberately. You're welcome to go on the discord and repeat the same arguments over again, but it won't change anything. The editor base is broadly in consensus that forking is a non-starter as long as the site is up. We have backups being made to facilitate a fork, but we won't go nuclear until and if Root pulls it down, because a fork while the site is still live would fail. --Piroko (talk) 17:48, 19 January 2022 (UTC)

"Forking to make a sire visible to search engines will fail because we could never compete with the version no one visits!" Wow this is the most retarded reasoning I've ever seen. 16:58, 22 July 2022 (UTC)

Does anyone have a link to the Rescue of Isha for OG Nobledark Imperium?[edit]

TheWingedHussar1683 (talk) 20:29, 22 January 2022 (UTC)

@TheWingedHussar1683 it's probably one of these. 20:49, 25 August 2022 (UTC)

Trying to Crowdsource Rules for Tau UberHeresy[edit]

Okay this is Mozhart, you've probably seen his art at He took a concept I once saw banned from the space marine creation rules and made it AWESOME Dude deserves some credit for his sick artwork and unleashing the legions of weeaboo commie ubernoobs demanding Tau Space Marines. I suck at all this wiki, so I need advice on how to make a Tau Space Marines page, make it uberheretical, and try to harness /tg/'s unholy powers to generate some rules for these beautiful abominations. If you see any ugly pages that is me trying to solve computer. Prior heads up. Best case I see is we troll a lot of people by taking something stupid, making it look cool, and making a bunch of smooth brains obsess and kitbash themselves into goo. Appreciate comments or being told to get lost. NoHeresyHere (talk) 01:06, 13 February 2022‎ (UTC)

I don't see any issue with a homebrew Tau Space Marines page so long as it's not super-lame (be sure to tag it with {{Heresy}} ). I wouldn't count on getting much help with it, but you never know. 21:01, 25 August 2022 (UTC)

Requesting temporary protection of the Skaven page[edit]

Recently it seems a vandal with a bee in his bonnet has been trying to vandalize the Skaven page with a bunch of ravings about how they're supposed to be representations of Nietzsche's ubermensch and that they only seem evil because the "libturds" are trying to discredit them or something equally insane. As he seems to jump between different IPs I suspect that blocking him won't work, so would it be possible to protect the page (or at least restrict editing to registered users) until he gets bored?--Newerfag (talk) 03:29, 21 July 2022 (UTC)

@Newerfag there's only two janitors, and neither one has been active in some time, you can always try Email or Discord, but I wouldn't count on it. Luckily the sites anti-spam defenses are sufficient for the moment, and the natural wiki soft-security is still holding against griefers, for now anyway. 21:07, 25 August 2022 (UTC)

Requesting page creation help: The Sleeper (Warhammer Fantasy)[edit]

So apparently, before the Old Ones came to Mallus, an Empire of Insectoid beings once ruled in underground cities, with legions of enslaved cavemen. Then the Old Ones came and started fucking with shit, and the slaves rebelled. The Emperor of the Insectoids made a deal with the Chaos Gods for power but was still driven off in defeat, and hid himself away in his own temple dedicated to himself. He then was entrapped by the entrance collapsing, and he slowly mutated to fill the room and became hermaphroditic, becoming a see-through insectoid meatblob filled with developing swarms of minions and with psychic powers which he used millenia later to try and make an army of Greenskins and Dwarfs. He was killed by Gotrek Gurnisson though. Anyways, I don't know how to create a new page, only edit existing ones. Could someone copy-paste this to its own page please? 2601:188:c300:64b8:883d:782d:8973:2663 04:47, 3 August 2022‎ (UTC)

Done 01:17, 6 August 2022 (UTC)

Patreon? PayPal? Proper routing incantations for involuntary blood sacrifices from regressive SJW fascists at work?[edit]

If this question is idiotic, tell me so, but is there no way to make a monetary contribution toward the site? Everyone has bills to pay for services (and for that matter, disservices, especially in my state of California). There damned sure isn't any ad revenue here. I simply would like to make some donation for keeping the bandwidth on and preempting potential site crashes, but cannot find a way to do so. Black Echo (talk) 16:29, 16 August 2022‎ (UTC)

Root runs the site but hasn't answered messages on his talk page in ages. You could try e-mail Special:EmailUser or Discord but even on those people haven't had much luck recently. 17:40, 25 August 2022 (UTC)

The Mystery Flesh Pit National Park, The Backrooms, Trevor Henderson, Slenderman, and other ARGs[edit]

Since the SCP Foundation has its own page due to how it can be used for Delta Green and similar RPG systems, I would like to put forth the idea of the creation of pages for other Internet Horror Projects. They all had a lot of worldbuilding and lore put into them over the years, and it would be cool for them to have their information listed here as inspiration to fa/tg/uys everywhere. 2601:188:c300:64b8:7cc4:6403:f477:2b18 13:52, 24 August 2022‎ (UTC)

Those are sufficiently /tg/ related that it shouldn't be an issue, you should feel free to go ahead and make them whenever you get the time. 18:35, 25 August 2022 (UTC)
Well, I'd like to, but I'm not sure how to start a page. I know how to edit pages, but I haven't figured out page creation yet. Although, I see that Slenderman already has a page as a Dungeons and Dragons ported Homebrew Monster as a subtype of Super-Undead. 2601:188:c300:64b8:7cc4:6403:f477:2b18 19:27, 25 August 2022‎ (UTC)
It's not hard, just go to the title you want created; if it doesn't exist you will see a message that says "There is currently no text in this page. You can search for this page title in other pages, search the related logs, or create this page." just hit the create this page link and edit as you normally would, or use a link e.g. Mystery Flesh Pit National Park. Note that Delta Green already exists, so if you tried that you'd just end up at it's page. However, it's best to search first to double check a topic does not exist at another title; if by accident you do create a duplicate just redirect it to the existing page by replacing all content with "#REDIRECT [[Title of existing page here]]" (without the quotations) which will also help others to avoid repeating the same error. 20:33, 25 August 2022 (UTC)

Removal of Clan Jamcreermin from Template Skaven Clans[edit]

Can someone remove the homebrew Clan Jamcreermin from the official Skaven clans list? I rid the Clan Jamcreermin page of official tags and put homebrew in instead, as the discussion page had a guy come forth and reveal he made them as a homebrew a few years ago. 2601:188:C300:64B8:65F6:6D44:6AD8:E953 23:48, 1 September 2022 (UTC)
