2009


Random page

Newfag here, trying to educate myself. After a while, I started pushing the 'random' button, but most of the articles it comes up with are campaigns and chars. Someone care to change that?

There's no real way to do that besides either prohibiting putting the campaign materials and charsheets on the wiki (which is unacceptable) or writing up significantly more articles than there's said campaign materials and charsheets (which is a grand task to undertake).

That, or condense a grand majority of Campaign pages. Also a hard task, and liable for butthurt. Ragnasal 16:29, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

The Campaign articles should start with Campaign: in their names, to put them in a different namespace from the default [does mediawiki make new namespaces on the fly like that?]. Character sheets that are instances of specific characters should be named 'Campaign:NameOfStory/NameOfCharacter'. I would've thought 'Random Page' would grab a random from only the 'Main:' namespace, not the others like 'Talk:', 'User:' or 'File:'. I'd have to install Mediawiki myself and poke around in the code. --NotBrandX 21:15, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
