This page is for '''requesting changes to our [[Project:Interwiki map|interwiki map]]'''. (See also [[Wikipedia:InterWiki]] for background information.)
  
The websites listed below need not be [[Wikipedia:Wiki|wikis]], but they do 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:
+
''Things to note:''
: <tt><nowiki>[[</nowiki>''SitePrefix'':''PageName'']]</tt>
+
* Before requesting that we add a site, please check our [[Project:Interwiki map (full)|''full'' interwiki map]] to make sure we don't already have interwiki linking enabled for it.
''SitePrefix'' will be replaced by a fixed ''[[Wikipedia:URL|URL]]'' (as listed below, with ''PageName'' substituted for "$1" in the URL). Note that ''PageName'' can contain spaces, but these will be converted to underscores(<tt>_</tt>) in the final URL, not plus signs (<tt>+</tt>) nor hex codes (<tt>%20</tt>).

Revision as of 14:00, 21 September 2006

This page is for requesting changes to our interwiki map. (See also Wikipedia:InterWiki for background information.)

Things to note:

  • Before requesting that we add a site, please check our full interwiki map to make sure we don't already have interwiki linking enabled for it.
  • Websites in the map need not be wikis, but they do 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]]
  • SitePrefix will be replaced by a fixed URL, as listed in the table below, with PageName substituted for "$1" in the URL). PageName can contain spaces but they will be converted to underscores(_) in the final URL, not plus signs (+) nor hex codes (%20). If this won't work properly for your website, then it's probably not worth adding it to the interwiki map.
  • 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. They 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 about this).
  • 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 other Wikimedia sites).
  • If you don't want to suggest a SitePrefix, we can come up with one for you.
  • Please sign your request with three or four tildes (~~~~) if you want a response from us — or just in case we need to discuss it with you further.

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