Categorization Issues[edit]

Hex, we need to have a talk about your recent contributions. It looks like you're building a homebrew setting. Which is fine, but it needs to be properly categorized. See the following from the Main Page:

  • Campaigns in the Campaign: namespace 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!
    • Use the Setting: namespace for articles related to homebrew (as opposed to offical) settings, following the same syntax.

If you need some assistance with this, we can help you categorize your project properly in the namespace. We'd just need a name for your project. Please respond to this before creating any more pages. --Piroko (talk) 03:10, 21 April 2021 (UTC)

For example, your recent page Political_Structure_of_the_Protectorate_and_the_Empire should more properly be: Setting:hexxygon's_project_name/Political_Structure_of_the_Protectorate_and_the_Empire. For example, I have a homebrew myself called Setting:Star*Finder, with the project name obviously being Star*Finder, and any subpages under that project would use Setting:Star*Finder/SubPageName. --Piroko (talk) 03:15, 21 April 2021 (UTC)

Hey Piroko, sorry I'm still pretty new to this wiki. Basically on the Бpoнeпeхoтa wargame, I'm trying to archive these translated stories / art from official source material. The content is not homebrew, but official lore just translated. If there is something specific I need to add or change to each page to make it work for lore, or if you're able to help me put those pages into proper order, I'd be very thankful :) --Hexxygon (talk) 23:27, 21 April 2021 (UTC)
Okay, that's a start. Well, we have a page for Бpoнeпeхoтa, so in that case I suppose the simplest way would be to just use that as the category. For any pages you create, consider whether the title could be confused with stuff from other games like 40k, pathfinder, etc. If the title seems to overlap, add Бpoнeпeхoтa/ to the front of the name so people know it's for this game. But if it doesn't seem confusing, then go ahead and name it how you will. Of the pages you've created, I think only "A Brief History of Humanity" really needed to be moved. I've spun up a new template as well. There's not much in it right now but if you amass some more pages about specific factions we can start adding the faction pages into the template. --Piroko (talk) 00:43, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

Factions: Dusty Zone Raiders, Militia of the Planet Velian, Pirates of Marcus, Ruthenian Guard, Spetsnaz of the Planet Felicia

One other thing...[edit]

Since you're new, I figured I should mention, we have a discord. It's kinda informal but most of the active editors hang out there. --Piroko (talk) 01:29, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

Wonderful, thanks for taking the time to explain and edit the pages, I can see what you mean that it could be confusing. I have a few more pages to add so I'll do my best to follow what you have outlined. --Hexxygon (talk) 01:13, 23 April 2021 (UTC)
