[edit] Wiki Scope

The wiki covers all Chaos Dwarf material, with lesser emphasis on related races and armies.


The related armies are: Orcs and Goblins, Warriors of Chaos, Ogre Kingdoms, and Dwarfs. Detailed information on all other races/creatures/subjects should be limited to a paragraph or two on the Other Warhammer Armies page.


There may be exceptions to this!

[edit] General Wiki Tips

More detailed info and other useful tips are at the Media Wiki site.


The keyboard key for | is above the Enter key on US keyboards or next to the Z key on UK keyboards. For some reason, the key symbol looks like two lines rather than just one.


Short pages and dead-end pages should be kept to a minimum, try to consolidate them with similar subjects if possible or make them a subheading on the page that links to them. Consider putting the info on the Bestiary or Glossary pages.


Always put a Related Links section at the bottom of the page.


Fanfiction/fanfluff

Title your pages to begin with your name or storyname. Grimstonefire does this and it makes it much easier to see what is fan stuff and who wrote it. It also keeps all your pages together when shown alphabetically. You can rename your pages with the "move" tab.


[edit] How to Add Images

You must upload any images you wish to show on a wiki page using the Upload File function. This wiki does not allow for linking to pictures that are stored on another site, although you may use a link to an external image in the same way that you would link to an external web page.

Please compress and resize images to a file that is less than 200 kB (a simple way for Windows users is to install the Microsoft Image Resizer and use the Medium or Large setting). Larger files may be allowed if appropriate. Do not upload uncompressed digital photos.

You can alter the size that a picture is displayed on the page, as shown in the code below. 400px gives a width that allows for two images to be shown side-by-side on the same page, 800px would take up almost the whole width for most people.
