Revision as of 23:28, 30 August 2006

The following list is what we'd like to use for our interwiki map (see InterWiki at Wikipedia for background information and Wikimedia's Interwiki map for an example), but the functionality hasn't been added to this wiki yet.

The websites listed below need not be wikis, but they need to have a well defined page name structure that lends itself to wiki links. Don't add a site unless its pages can be predictably linked to using a link of the form

[[SitePrefix:PageName]]

where SitePrefix will be replaced by a fixed URL (as listed below), with PageName substituted for "$1". Note that PageName can contain spaces, but these will be converted to underscores(_) in the final URL, not plusses (+) nor hex codes (%20).

The SitePrefix codes, which are case insensitive, must not contain any spaces ( ), colons (:), ampersands (&), or equal signs (=) — in fact, we probably should just avoid punctuation completely — and should also not match any of this wiki's namespaces, nor any ISO 639 language codes (en, de, fr, ...), just in case we decide to expand Iron Chariots to separate language wikis in the future (see Wikipedia:Interlanguage links for more information).

Finally, please keep the SitePrefix codes easily identifiable. People should be able to tell what site you're referring to, more or less, even if they're not very familiar with the "wikiverse" (for example, using "wikt" for Wiktionary is a bad idea, even if it is an acceptable prefix when linking from Wikimedia sites).

With the foregoing caveats in mind, feel free to add any wikis or other relevant websites to the table below. Please keep the entries in alphabetical order.
