Getting involved

From Emulation General Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

If you're interested in helping out the Emulation General wiki but don't know where to start, here are some things we'd appreciate help with.

Low effort[edit]

Moderate effort[edit]

  • WIP articles – These are new articles that are not yet ready for the main page and need to be improved.
  • Outdated articles – These articles contain information that might no longer be accurate and need to be updated.
  • Articles stubs – These articles are stubs and need to be expanded with more information.
  • Update/create new emulator pages - Copy the template below, add {{WIP}} if you need help or intend to finish the page later, add {{stub}} if everything is finished but it should be longer.

High effort[edit]

Wikipedia copies
These are articles we took from Wikipedia. The source article may either contain updated information beyond what we've copied, causing us to stagnate and provide potentially incorrect information, or showcase a subject in a manner that may stray from its relevance in emulation. The best way to deal with these articles is to rewrite them, but in their current form they require a high degree of knowledge in their fields in order to break them down for readers.

Emulator page template[edit]

Here's our current layout for an emulator page. Copy-paste this if you are creating a new emulator page or use it if a page needs updating. If you need an example, you can check out our Infobox emulator template page.

{{Infobox emulator
|title         = 
|logo          = 
|logowidth     = 
|developer     = 
|version       = 
|active        = 
|platform      = 
|architecture  = 
|target        = 
|compatibility = 
|accuracy      = 
|website       =
