IFWiki raw scribbles

Filed under: IFWiki, Interactive Fiction — davidwelbourn @ 7:12 am

Recently, I’ve been scribbling down notes on overlarge index cards to remind me of things to do. In case people are curious, here’s what my IFWiki cardset currently looks like (and I wish there was a  ✓ character — hm, I suppose I can use √):

_ missing a few AIF Comps as per Delron’s AIF comp page (2009 Christmas Micro Comp,  2002 AIF Pre-Comp (?))

_ simplfy the genre templates so we don’t have both {{fantasy}} and {{fantasync}}

_ review the Piracy 2.0 page

_ “composite room” ? “partitioned room”? } multi-room

_ // is the new official web page for the card. Zarf sez it’s okay to put on Starters page. Also, there’s a CC license on it. CC Attribution Share Alike 3.0
