Adding links to more content pages on the main page

I think it would improve the wiki and make it more accessible to everyone, if we added links on the main page to more content pages that don't have a link yet. I can't do it myself though, so I'd appreciate if someone else considered doing it. I have looked up all content pages at https://emulation.gametechwiki.com/index.php?title=Special:AllPages&hideredirects=1 and I have made a list of most of the ones that aren't yet linked on the main page, excluding all that focus on specific emulators and a few more that I thought were better off staying inside other links. Also, there's at least 2 pages on this list that aren't linked from any other page, GPD_XD_Devices and Thread_template. Here's the list:

Thanks. I'll start adding some. -Jpx (talk) 05:52, 17 April 2020 (UTC)

Ninth Generation Consoles?

I know the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S aren't schedule to release for another month and a half, but I was wondering when it does should we make new category and classify it as ninth-generation? Also I know there was some debate on whether the Nintendo Switch should be classified as eighth-generation or ninth, should we move it to ninth or wait until there's more of a consensus? -Skylark (talk) 21:47, 26 September 2020 (UTC)

I can add it. I think we should only change the Switch to ninth if Wikipedia does it. -Jpx (talk) 06:48, 14 November 2020 (UTC)

New main page

I've been thinking about remaking the main page. I'll probably create a separate WIP page to test it out. There's mainly two reasons:

  • Make it easier to contribute to the wiki - this might be things like highlighting high priority tasks on the main page
  • Different layout of emulators - I've been thinking about separating console, computers and arcade emulators.

Let me know if you got any suggestions. -Jpx (talk) 06:48, 14 November 2020 (UTC)

I have made a few changes to the WIP page to show some of my ideas but I'd still recommend anyone to improve on them even if it changes it completely. -WebMint (talk) 18:11, 7 January 2021 (UTC)

Quality control

Some pages are of subpar quality or outdated. I think we need some better way of quality control. Perhaps something like Wikipedias Content assessment & Vital aritcles or something like PCGamingWiki? A way to go thru all pages, add a category or template and then be able to list all pages that needs fixing. Perhaps we should rate the quality of all pages? -Jpx (talk) 06:48, 14 November 2020 (UTC)

Strange and forgotten consoles (1980-2000)

The parenthesis should be altered to (1980 till now) or removed, as the page talks about specific systems as recent as 2020.--Nngnna (talk) 09:50, 21 February 2021 (UTC)
