Announcing GuroWiki
[]
Few months ago, I asked your opinions about a possible GuroWiki here: https://dis.guro.wtf/dis/koko.php?res=13
Today, it's finally finished, and ready for your use.
https://wiki.guro.wtf/index.php/Main_Page
There are no official rules for now, I don't want to be very strict - just use your common sense really. Also be careful about lower/uppercases at titles, but moderators would handle that for the wiki to be more organized if necessary. Over time, I will let the community to determine the rules.
You can read about editing and formatting here:
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Editing_pages
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Formatting
Also, feel free to use this thread to cooperate for writing wiki articles.

As stated before, we are in charge to keep the place organized and tidy. Part of ensuring this is creating quality articles for the wiki. However, if see a page that needs a quality reviewing, report it here and we will handle it.

great

Cool resource, it'll be interesting to see how it grows.
[]
Welp, nothing here but crickets for now, but I'll bite. I've started writing an article that will probably take me a couple more sessions to "polish". I'm sure you can find it through "Recent changes" or similar, but for now I'll keep it (sorta) under wraps. I'll also ask members of another related community for some help on that article.

Proposal: don't restrict topics of the wiki to extreme / guro-level violence. I expressed this earlier in the previous discussion thread here: https://dis.guro.wtf/dis/koko.php?res=13&pagenum=all#p75 - I believe this wiki should be more like "RyonaWiki". An article about some specific fetish or some specific videogame shouldn't be talking exclusively about the lethal / gory examples. General "ryona" should also be fine.

Followup questions.

1. The edit page emphasizes "Do not submit copyrighted work without permission!". So what's the admin team's stance on this, exactly? The "Copyrights" wiki page is a red link. The entire Gurochan itself exists to post other artists' content, with credit where possible. I'd imagine that doing the same on Wiki pages - with extra emphasis on properly crediting the image - should be fine.

2. Pages for kinks could benefit from descriptions of where to find such content in the wild. Some of this content can be live-action / simulated (death scenes in movies etc), and some of it might even be unsimulated (talking about non-lethal kinks). Is it fine to provide references to movies, porn studios and such, as long as it's not actual real-life gore/death?

That is a media-wiki default, you can upload copyrighted content if you want. The laws in Russia are very flimsy.

Yes

Awesome m8!
[]
Will we be able to look up guro works based on character name or kink?

Like if I typed in "Elsa" will a list of all works where she's involved be listed?
[]
>>571
If someone is dedicated enough to document guro pieces of Elsa and then categorizing it in the wiki, sure. Keep in mind the wiki is not a gallery however.
[]
why we need a wiki?
[]
Is it okay to make a page about an freakshow fetish, like conjoinment for example?
[]
>>585
yes

ooh, very exciting. tried my hand and wrote two pages. definitely needs some polishing later, but it's a start

two things i'm curious about:

do we have anything in mind involving the use of 'extreme' image thumbnails on articles? guro wiki and all, but i'm wondering if it'd be better to steer more towards softcore examples (when possible) to avoid squick overload. might just be me.

another thing - do we plan on implementing infobox templates? i'd imagine they'd be useful for things like videogames, books, doujins, etc. as a quick overview of what they are, and what kind of guro content they have.

I don't see why would we try avoiding more extreme images, as long as it doesn't start turning into a gallery (although I am fine with examples)

Like I wrote in the earlier proposal thread, I believe the TVTropes approach can work well here. There can be articles about kinks, articles about games/movies, articles about websites, and they can all link to each other.

I don't see why extreme guro should be outlawed on a GURO wiki of all places, but I think it helps if an article provides several examples of varying gruesomeness, of varying medium (crude drawing vs. well-produced panel vs. videogame vs. mainstream movie), of varying "methods to do it" if applicable. The article that I started writing earlier - https://wiki.guro.wtf/index.php/Cuntbusting - will ideally have plenty of substantially "different" examples like this.

Three feature requests from me.

* "Main article" template, implemented like this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dwayne_Johnson#Filmography . An auto-generated link with wording "Main article: ARTICLENAME". How it can be used here: https://wiki.guro.wtf/index.php/Cuntbusting#Gurochan - the "Main article" link would lead to the article about Gurochan, which would talk about the website itself (and what you can find on it), as opposed to this section which talks about the specific kink and how to find it on Gurochan.

* A way to embed YouTube videos, not just images.

* And add the link to the wiki to the list of boards (g, s, fur, art, etc - at the very top of Gurochan's pages, and in large text on the front page). Right now, THE only link to the wiki is in this thread in /dis/.

>another thing - do we plan on implementing infobox templates?
The software already supports infoboxes, so all you need to do is copying from another page.

>* "Main article" template
Done, you can use it like this: {{Main|article name}}

>the "Main article" link would lead to the article about Gurochan, which would talk about the website itself (and what you can find on it), as opposed to this section which talks about the specific kink and how to find it on Gurochan.
Currently, there isn't an article about GUROchan, so anyone should feel free to create it. That said, I think those linked threads should stay in that article as it's more relevant to that niche.

>* A way to embed YouTube videos, not just images.
Done, I added this extension: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:YouTube

>* And add the link to the wiki to the list of boards (g, s, fur, art, etc - at the very top of Gurochan's pages, and in large text on the front page). Right now, THE only link to the wiki is in this thread in /dis/.
Alright. It was actually also linked in the frames, but now I added it both to top navigation and the front page as well. Hopefully, that would help making GuroWiki more active.

The wiki is getting spammed, e.g. this
https://wiki.guro.cx/index.php/Well-known_Quotes_On_Sign_Shop
[]

I cleaned the spam articles and spam accounts, but a few actual user accounts might have been also deleted in the process. Please check if your accounts are present (a list of all user accounts at https://wiki.guro.cx/index.php/Special:ListUsers), and re-register them if they were accidentally deleted. I'm sorry for possible inconveniences.

Also, I implemented an easy Q&A captcha for registering new accounts to prevent such spam in the future.

This should be bigger!
