Getting started

Name the Greyhawk wiki!

This wiki needs a name. Place your suggestion below with your username (sign with four tildes: ~).

  • The Great Library of Greyhawk--Robbastard 22:05, 22 August 2007 (EDT)

I don't think you're going to find a better name than that, but in ascending order of worth....

  • Greywiki
  • The Free Wiki of Greyhawk
  • From the Sorcerer's Wiki (or just stick with 'Scroll') --Rindis 18:21, 17 October 2007 (EDT)

  • Okay, it's been over a year and only 3 votes. If there are no objections, I think "Great Library of Greyhawk" should be declared as winner.--Robbastard 17:28, 5 October 2008 (EDT)

Protection of Main Page

Do not you think that Main Page should NOT be available for new-comers? It is Main Page yah.. --Lunar 04:15, 25 June 2008 (EDT)

Renaming your 'Main Page' to 'Great Library of Greyhawk' will help your SEO


I'm the guy that set up Spelljammer Wiki. When I was doing some research about how to do a wiki, someone told me that it is useful to rename your 'Main Page'. This can help your SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) but can also make your wiki look more attractive to the eye.

If you want this wiki to be called The Great Library of Greyhawk, then maybe you should rename this page 'Great Library of Greyhawk' and adjust the navigation, so that it says 'Great Library of Greyhawk' instead of Main Page.

That might not fit in as well as 'Greyhawk Wiki' would have, but maybe the navigation box will resize to let the word fit.

You will get two advantages. Firstly, the name Great Library of Greyhawk will appear (as a link) on every single page of this wiki. This will promote that text as a search term (on search engines like Google). Secondly, the page itself, will show up on Google's results page as 'Great Library of Greyhawk' instead of just the non-descriptive text 'Main Page'.

I wish I could tell you the settings you need to change, but when i asked for advice on Wikia's central wiki, someone helpful surfed by my wiki and did all the donkey work for me. But I don't think it is too hard to do this work.

One thing I know you would need to do is update your entry in any directory of wikis that you are listed on. (And if you are not listed on any of these directories yet, you should go looking for them.)

Anyhoo, good luck with the new name. Big Mac 15:37, 17 January 2009 (EST)

Featured article?

I was just thinking that it'd be awfully swell to have a featured article link on the main page like Wikipedia or the FR wiki. Anyone here know how to make the template?--Robbastard 16:06, 26 September 2009 (EDT)
