From GuildWiki

Projects are focused efforts to improve or maintain a specific section of the GuildWiki. You do not need to be member of a project to work on the GuildWiki, nor are project members required to meet any expectations—projects are simply organizational tools to bring order to an otherwise chaotic medium.

Creating a project[edit source]

Anybody can create a project.

  1. Create a new article in the GuildWiki namespace titled with the name of your project.
  2. Place this text at the bottom of the article, [[Category:Community projects]], to include the article in Category:Community projects.
  3. Add a row to the Active Projects table above, filling in the appropriate columns.
  4. Include in the project article the required sections (below).
  5. Add any appropriate recommended sections (also below).

Required sections[edit source]

Include these sections for every project:

  1. Project description
    At the top, before any section headers.
  2. Progress check list
    The first section after the description. A table or bulleted list of goals for the project, allowing participants (and lurkers) to see how much has been done and what remains.
  3. Utility/Utilities
    Generally, the final section of the article. A catch all section for things that help everyone to use consistent formatting, language and maintain a high level of quality. This can include:
    • Stub template specific to articles that fall under the project.
    • Links to relevant style and formatting guidelines
    • Templates that might be useful to editors contributing to the project

Recommended sections[edit source]

These sections help others to join your project and track what is going on.

  • Participants
    • A userbox for members of the project
  • To-do lists
