This Wiki needs YOU

If you think this site is helpful, why not add to it and make it even more helpful? We want you to contribute to this wiki. If you see mistakes, omissions, dead ends, broken links, or other things that are wrong, you can edit them yourself and make this wiki more useful for the next guy. If you really want to contribute, add a new format to the Game Resource Archives Section. We want to expand it to become the largest resource available on this subject.

Also, if you have ideas about the structure of this site, its contents, or anything else, feel free to share them in the discussion areas or on the XeNTaX forums. To prevent spam, you need to register before you can edit a page.

Todo list

  • Add tutorial explaining the basics of how to read a GRAF. What do the numbers mean etc.
  • More info on how to contribute to this Wiki. -Captain
  • Filetype Refactoring.
  • Add content to Help section.

Current work in progress

  • 29 may Release. On sunday, XeNTaX will send out a press release to several major and minor sites and the wiki will be open for the public.
  • Overseeing growth. We are adding new content while assisting new members

Future Improvements

  • Phase 2. We're running into a problem with games that share the same archive type. We came to a solution that involves creating separate pages for common filetypes. Planning & info is here: Filetype Refactoring.

Once again, anonymous editing has been disabled to fight spammers

It's really the only way to halt the recent influx of spammers. I'm also thinking of making all links nofollow, like on Wikipedia, although that may somewhat disadvantage some of the people that post bonafide links here. I'm open for suggestions.

I'm not entirely clear, what exactly does nofollow do? As for the spammer problem, I suppose this is the best way to control it... ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 12:25, 6 February 2007 (EST)
The main reason spammers try to put their links on lots of sites is to raise their rank in search engines like Google. Nofollow means search engine crawlers won't follow the link to the next site. This means the link won't be counted towards its google ranking. So, while nofollow won't deter spammers, at least it won't help them reach their goal. Captain
