Hi, there! Would you like to add your loverly prose to the Ravenloft Wiki?

Here are some general pointers when you make new pages:

Big Headers: ==Header==

Sub Headers: ===Header===

Intrawiki Link: We'll assume proper names WILL eventually have pages. You can go ahead and make most Ravenloft subjects a link by putting [[Subject]]. The wiki does the rest. I know, it's awesome, right?

Italics: ''text''
Bold: '''text'''
Paragraph break: Make sure to put an EXTRA return after a paragraph end. The wiki doesn't recognize one, it needs two.

For more in depth stuff, start here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Tutorial
or here: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Formatting

Note that those are all apostrophes: '
Not quotes: "

so italics is two 's and bold is three 's.



All this should probably be put on the wiki itself somewhere, so people don't have to come to the forum to find it.... <hint> ;)

Yes, but people were confused in other threads regarding format so I thought it would be best to put it here. I'll make a help article as well.

Understood. And thanks for the help article. I'll make this thread a sticky so people can find it easily.

Everyone! For instructions on Mistipedia formatting and editting, see the Help page

Suggestion: How about we remove spoilers from mistipedia? Or give spoiler warnings.
I am in early chapters of "Tower of Doom" book, and I was interested about a particular item. I checked the mistipedia link to see if it was developed elsewhere, in a rulesbook or something... and I found a pretty jarring spoiler, with no warning. :(

I feel for you, but that would defeat a lot of the purpose of it. I mean, the whole thing is essentially one giant spoiler. We do have a warning to that effect on the main page.
