* We'd use "''ext''" instead of ".''ext''" or "*.''ext''" so we can have autosort in categories and the like without having to do weird things.
To email me, remove the NOSPAM from the addresses, replace [at] with "@" (no quotes), and replace [dot] with "." (no quotes).<br />

* We also want "''ext''" to be lowercase unless a given game actually uses capitals (we would then make judicious use of <code><nowiki>{{DISPLAYTITLE}}</nowiki></code> to make sure page titles actually display correctly).
I will leave them like this until someone makes me a couple of images that has the addresses on them.

Or, you can just use the [[Special:Emailuser/Dinoguy1000|WIKI email form]].

Hi! I'm Dinoguy1000 (or Phillip Patriakeas, if you know me in real life or on one of a select few websites), and I'm the primary maintainer of this wiki (more or less ^^ ). You can find out more about me from http://community.wikia.com/wiki/User:Dinoguy1000 and the assortment of pages linked from there, and you can always leave me a message or email me if you want to get in touch with me. =)

Article naming

I think we want to start naming pages like "ext (Game Title) (Platform)" or the like:

  • We'd use "ext" instead of ".ext" or "*.ext" so we can have autosort in categories and the like without having to do weird things.
  • We also want "ext" to be lowercase unless a given game actually uses capitals (we would then make judicious use of {{DISPLAYTITLE}} to make sure page titles actually display correctly).
  • "(Platform)" would only be required if a game is known to use different formats under the same extension on different platforms.
  • "(Game Title)" should be the name of the game engine or game developer known to have introduced a given format, or else the title of the first game known to have used it.
  • All of this, of course, is moot if a given format already has a "common" name, e.g. if it's a general-use format such as Bitmap Images or Zipped Archives, or a name otherwise widely used by modders/fans.
