Hey all,

Big news on the library: we have one! Here is the link (It can also be accessed by using the “imperial Library” link in the header of the forums beside “Members”): imperial-library/doku.php?id=welcome. You username and email has been added the wiki login system, read below on how to login for the first time. Now before we all rush to post en masse, I think it would be a good idea to go over some potential FAQs.

How do I login to the Wiki?
All users from the forums that are at least a vassal have had their user transferred. If you have never logged into the Wiki before, you'll need to set a password, to do so click “Set new password” and follow the instructions. The email associated with your user on the Wiki is the same as on the forums, check that email.

How do I add a page?
You can search for a page name, and if it does not exist, you can choose to create that page. You can also create an internal link to a page that does not exist yet and put it into the proper namespace category, which is the easiest way to keep the underlying organizational structure nice and tidy. Many pages have already been created for convenience’s sake, particularly realm pages.

Are there templates?
You betcha! I have created a few templates to start out with for guilds, characters, realms, and religions. More will be added as time goes on for things like languages and historical events. You can find the templates on their respective hub pages on the left side of the page. The templates can serve as a basic guide to follow for your page, but feel free to add to it as you see fit.

How do I delete a page?
There are ways to do it, but let’s not worry about that right now. If you need a page deleted for some reason, let Johansen or I know.

Where should I put [insert page] so people can find it?
If there is a category for it on the left, add it to one of the lists on the respective page. If there is not a good place for it, then you can create a page that does not immediately link to any other page (we can find it through searching). You can always add in links later on.

How do I use the character creator?
It is pretty self explanatory. It will do all sorts of code magic to sort characters by IGN and rank. You can also create a page for all of your past and present lore characters.

How do I edit things?
When you go to a page, click on the pen and paper icon on the right side of the screen. You can then use the GUI to edit pages.

Where do I put my lore stories?
A good question, and something we will likely need to discuss as a community. For now, you can create a “historical records” subsection on your realm page that links to lore posts, or link to the text of them in relevant pages

How do I do [insert thing here]?
Ask me or Johanssen. We probably know the answer. Most of it is pretty self-explanatory after you’ve explored the GUI a bit.

OMG I messed up my page or [insert page here]! How do I fix it?
The wiki automatically creates versions every time a page is updated, you can view those versions and recover from any point in the past.

You have done us all a great service. We have a measure of our old completed selves back with this reintroduction.

You will be rewarded for the endevour.

Thanks to Cerydon and Johannsen for doing this. I've personally heard Johannsen's anguish getting the character creator to work. Good job!

This is some excellent work. Looks clean and functional. Although I'm a bit curious if anyone still has access to the old wiki/forum files and if it's possible to extract data from them?

You can find the old wiki files here:
http://www.hermertiatest.rgfv.ca/wikitest/index.php?title=Main_Page. There may be a way to transfer the pages over, but we can also just copy/paste the text and images.

Upon further review, it looks like it will be quite difficult to transfer the files, given the different types of formatting. It will be a bit tedious, but we can work on transferring over pages manually. I have already started doing this, but I'd appreciate all the help I can get.

Where do we put historical figures like previous rulers?
