Opening Words

Summer is here! For the Gods and Goddesses in the north hemisphere, the incomming months will often rhymes with sea and sun! The perfect moment to bring a lot of articles to life so they can also benefit from the gentle breeze of the sea and the shiny sun.

Which lead us to SummerWiki 2019 : "Sea, Beasties and Other Questing!", an event organised by players for players to encourage and celebrate creativity on the GodWiki! The principles of SummerWiki 2019 are the principles of the GodWiki in general.

Write new articles, expend already existing ones or simply add a picture. Every contribution is valuable and meaningful for both SummerWiki 2019 and GodWiki as a whole!

Writing an article during the event will grant your guild points in the Pantheon of Wikidness and by contributing to GodWiki during SummerWiki 2019 you may even earn charges with the Side Jobs!

Thanks for your participation and have a creative SummerWiki 2019!

Getting Started

Pick a subject...

Below, you'll find Summer themed lists with red links of Artifacts/Equipment/Monsters/Quests. When you have choose the article you want to write on, just click the red link to create a page!

You will also find already existing article which needs to be expanded (stubs) and/or a beautiful picture. Simply click the blue link to access those articles and edit them!

We'd recommand you to start your writing/editing by creating the page with this template at the top of your article:

{{Godwiki event construction|author={{subst:REVISIONUSER}}}}

This template will signal that you're going to work on it, and add it as a SummerWiki 2019 contribution. You can also change the status of the article in the list of subjects afterward.

We'll ask writers to work on only one article at a time, so everyone can get an article to write on. But feel free to start a new article one when you're done with one.

... and Write!

Creativity is the more important adjective to keep on mind when writing an article on the GodWiki and SummerWiki 2019 is no exception. Though, an article should be at least two paragraph long and it's appreciated to have the subject of the article included in bold in the first sentence.

If you aren't familiar with the Godwiki, the Creators Manual present global tips and tools on how to write an article while you can find category-specific recommandations in the Guidelines.

GodWiki Guidelines
General Godwiki Guidebook • Rules • Creators Manual • Help:Requests • GodWiki's Lore Compendium
Main content Artifact Articles • Aura Articles • Entertainment Articles • Equipment Articles • Geography Articles • Monster Articles • Quest Articles • Skill Articles • Town Articles
Divine content God Articles • Guild Articles • Hero Articles

You can also take example from the articles made during the JanuWiki 2019 event to get some inspiration on what kind of formatting and ideas you can use in your own article(s).

When finished

Remplace the template you put at the top of your page by : {{Godwiki event review}} AND then, post a note at the SummerWiki 2019 review on the Help:Requests page so that a reviewer can come and check your entry.

Again, once your article is completed and awaiting review, feel free to start another SummerWiki 2019 article if you wish!

Don't forget to keep an eye on your articles under review, though: volunteer editors will take a look over it, and if they have any questions or advice for you, they'll leave notes on the article's discussion page (known as its "Talk: page").

When the review is finished, a volunteer editor will add your article to the list in the "Progress" section, and give you the credit (and points) you've earned!

FAQ

My English isn't very good, can I join in?

Absolutely! The Godville community is rich and varied, and there are a lot of deities who aren't native speakers of English. SummerWiki is a festival of creativity, and the only things we need to have in common are Godville and enthusiasm.
Every SummerWiki article will receive the careful attention of a volunteer editor, who will do their very best to ensure your creativity shines through, regardless of your written English skills.

Can I create an article that's not on the list?

Absolutely! Create whatever you like! The SummerWiki list is for ideas, not for limits. If you create a quality article unrelated to the theme during SummerWiki and would like it to be counted, let our volunteer editors know at Help:Requests and they will give it the same treatment as any other SummerWiki content.

How can I get help with my article?

We have set up a page at Help:Requests where anyone can seek help with their GodWiki creations. There's a place where you can put up a request for help with spelling, grammar, phrasing, or simply ask for a general review of a page. There's also a place where you can put up a request for help with some technical aspect of the wiki. There are volunteer editors who will help you out, by looking at your page and making helpful changes.
You can see what changes have been made to any page on the "History" tab. Our volunteer editors will try to leave edit summaries in the page history, and will also leave a summary of what they've done at Help:Requests. It's a good idea to keep an eye on the Talk: page associated with the article you've requested help with, in case there's something the volunteer editor wants to ask or discuss.

How can I help in the event?

If you'd like to join our team of volunteer editors, who look over and give a polish to all completed content, keep the information on this page up-to-date, and just generally help out around the place, head over to the Talk page page and take a look at what happens there. It isn't essential that you understand how the wiki works, just that you have a desire to make our creators' content really shine, and want to learn what you don't know.
You could also list yourself as a volunteer editor on the Help:Requests page, which would mean people might contact you for help with the wiki or with their article, and you might be assigned an article to proofread and give a final thumbs up to.
Don't forget that you can also promote the event in your guild's forum and council page! You can even mention it in your godvoices!
