Talk:RPGnet Wiki in General

This is where we'd like to put discussion about the Wiki in general... instead os Talk:Main_Page, which gets hit by every Wiki spammer in existence.

General questions about the Wiki go here, or in the Wiki BBoard on

(Original contents of Talk:Main follow:)

Suddenly no images appear to be showing. Any idea what happened?

Some tips,

I don't like the amount of space the wiki gives for a space, like between this and the "Some tips,"

So I've started using double spaces, they look a bit big, but I think looking too big is better then looking to small.

How do I delete images that I don't want any more? I don't want to hog space.

I don't know why, but when I try to navigate to: GWS:Main_Page I get a "Page cannot be displayed" error. Did I (or one of the other players in the game) do something so wrong with the page that the Wiki can't parse it any more?

Question about license[edit]

I would like to create an Open Game Repository to post open game content. However, because everything on this wiki must be Creative Commons, I can't do that. Is there any chance that I could ask one of the powers that be to allow for pages to be covered by another license if they explicitly say so?

Also, when I went to register, it appeared that the terms of the license were such that the hosting company for RPG net requires a different license on any text posted, namely that they may do whatever they wish with the text. Anyone thought about how that might clash with creative commons?

Non-English RPGs[edit]

Is it ok to copy RPGs that are in non-English? I want to cut-and-paste an article from the Portuguese Wikipedia, Apokalypse Wars. 15:07, 26 August 2008 (PDT)

RPG content that's not in English is generally OK, but copying whole articles is probably a no-no for copyright reasons. A link to it with an explanation is OK, though. --Lord Knockwood the Mad 18:08, 26 August 2008 (PDT)


I would like to start using templates on our pages. Is the wiki already set up to handle those or does the code need to be added? If so instructions on doing this can be found at Mediawiki here. Kthapelo 10:36, 30 September 2009 (PDT)

I know this dosen't really belong here but...[edit]

I have been trying to register with the normal but everytime I do so I keep getting 'The answer given for the random question was incorrect.' even when I have actually checked that the answer was correct. I'm just putting this here because I don't know where else to put it. I can't actually do anything on so it can't go there. If someone could tell me what to do that would be most helpful.


Have you tried registering under a different name? That sounds like you were bumping into another user.
