I may have an objection there. "Not widely known" doesn't mean the guild do exist but only have one member? (I had that message for my guild until Arcanedreamer joined). I think you have a redirect to the daily newspaper truly doesn't exist.

But obviously i could be completely wrong! -- WardPhoenix (talk) 17:05, 5 October 2019 (UTC)

Some very quick testing with misspelled guild names & presumed non-existant ones show the 'not widely known in Godville' page. It's only unknown deities that link to the newspaper isn't it? -- S624 (talk) 17:23, 5 October 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, WardPhoenix, I thought about that, I'd like to make the {{doc|content=}} content give some clear guidelines for how this should be used. 😊
A non-existent guild or a guild with just one member appears as 'not widely known', however, checking the Godville profile page (as in, the destination of GodDjonni ) of the:
  • Original creator, and
  • Last significant editor
should be adequate to confirm it. If neither are members of the guild, then it is almost certainly defunct. For example, ⚜️ Lords of the Pit  had no guild page when it had just one member, but your GodWardPhoenix  page showed you were a member. (I remember this very clearly from looking it up for the JanuWiki Pantheon of Wildness!)
I was trying to find a way to have the hatnote autolink to {{god|Page creator}} somehow, there's no magic word for that — the closest is for the last editor, but that would just link to the God page of whoever placed the template on the page, so it's not useful. -- Djonni (talk) 17:45, 5 October 2019 (UTC)
