Proposal[Quelltext bearbeiten]

The following is a quick summary of proposed standards for dealing with user-generated content (UGC), meaning pages related to specific user-created quests in the Foundry.

Namespace standards[Quelltext bearbeiten]

There are two overall options:

  1. A custom namespace.
    • Page titles would have to start with a namespace such as Foundry: to separate them from official content.
    • This lets registered users use their preferences to choose whether or not their search results include these pages by default.
      • Either option can be made the default for all users.
    • Linking is more awkward due to the needed to include Foundry: in the link title, but the Help:Pipe trick helps make this less inconvenient.
      • i.e. writing a link as [[Foundry:Quest name|]] would give you a link that shows "Quest name" without having to fully type out [[Foundry:Quest name|Quest name]].
  2. Just allow people to create Foundry quest pages named after their quests and use page headers and categories to identify them and keep them separate.
    • This is simpler, but there'd be no way to filter UGC out of searches.
    • Linking would remain as simple as it is elsewhere, however.

Namespace name options[Quelltext bearbeiten]

  • Foundry
  • UGC
  • ...

Title standards[Quelltext bearbeiten]

The simplest option would be simply to require the pages be named after the quests. If this causes a conflict, add the author name in parenthesis after the name.

Naturally, if we require a namespace, that has to be included as the first part of the title.

Linking standards[Quelltext bearbeiten]

We are proposing a requirement that pages with official content cannot link to foundry quest pages.

This rule would have exceptions when the content in question is about the Foundry in some way.
