How to help

Welcome! Please help us document the world of Requiem: Memento Mori!

What is Requiem Wiki?

Requiem Wiki is a website for Requiem: Memento Mori (formally: Bloodymare) collaboratively written by many of its fans. It is a special type of website, called a wiki, that makes collecting and documenting information easy. People are constantly improving its articles with changes, all of which are recorded on article histories and recent changes. Inappropriate changes can be removed, and repeat offenders can be blocked from editing.

See the FAQ for more information on the history and vision of Requiem Wiki.

Editing

The content on this site can be edited through any internet browser, with no additional software. For technical help on how to edit, consult any of these links:

Don't be afraid to edit—anyone can edit almost any page, and we encourage you to be bold! Find something that can be improved, whether it be content, grammar, or formatting, and make it better.

Minor Edits help avoid clogging up the Recent Changes. Use minor edits and Show Preview when necessary.

New users are required to register a new account before they can begin editing. Once an account is created and the user is logged in, his or her editing contributions are properly attributed to them. It also makes it easier for other users to contact them.

We try to follow a common style and format across articles for consistency. When editing, you can generally look at a similar article for an example or consult the other users.

You can't break Requiem Wiki (but please, don't try to). Anything can be fixed or improved later. So go ahead, edit an article and help make this the best source of information on Requiem: Momento Mori!

When editing an article, if your changes are only limited to a small section, it is a best practice to use the edit link of the enclosing section. If your changes involve several different sections, consider using the edit link at the top of the page instead of editing one section at a time. Also, before saving your changes, always verify them with the preview button before committing your changes.

Finding something to help with

  • As a functioning wiki we constantly struggle with keeping the data from becoming outdated and wrong, so if you find an article that doesn't look quite right feel free to edit. See the Community Portal for some noted pages that need your help.
  • If you find a subject that needs an article, you can add some basic information and create it (it doesn't have to be complete!). See the list of wanted pages for pages that are linked to, but have not yet been created.
  • Some articles have only basic information and need to be filled out -- these are known as "stubs". To find and help with these, look through Category:Stubs.
  • Although they are no longer "stubs", some articles still have sections that are very short -- known as "stub sections". They can be found at Category:Articles with stub sections.
  • To join or start a focused effort on improving specific areas of the wiki, see RWiki:Projects.
  • Some users like to browse pages at random to find articles to improve. Use the "Random page" link in the side navigation box. Many others prefer to help with current problems and conflicts, which can be found in the list of recent changes.
