Welcome to Projects! This page lists all the community effort in improving and maintaining GodWiki. Here, you can start your own project or join an existing one.

How to start a project

Important: Before starting a project, please make sure there's not an existing one with a similar goal. If there's an existing project that is similar to what you had in mind, consider joining that project instead.

If you've determined that your project idea doesn't exist yet, follow these steps:

  1. Create the main project page by typing GodWiki:Projects/your project name. You can be as whimsical as you like when naming your project but make sure the project's name reflects the project's goal.
  2. Give an overview of your project's goal. This is where you justify why your project needs to exist. Identify the scope and intended result of your project.
  3. Create an instruction or to-do list to help coordinate your collaborative efforts. You can start with smaller tasks and add new ones as old ones are completed.
  4. If necessary, create a list of pages or a sandbox for your project. This will help you identify your project's progress.
  5. (Optional) Make a list of contributors so everyone can have a place they can sign up. The list also helps you keep track of who else is working on the project.
  6. Add your project to the list below. Don't forget to give a short description of your project so everyone can see what you're working on.
  7. Remember to always update your project's page with every progress you've made. Cross out completed tasks, add new ones if need be, or tag your project as completed or abandoned. Please don't forget to state the reason for abandoning your project if you choose to do so.

If you have any questions about projects, feel free to ask in the Discussion page or message Zoombie, who made this page and is currently maintaining it.
