Initiating the process[edit]

We have a system for having our articles peer-reviewed by other website contributors. Simply join the discord server and navigate to the #wiki-related channel. There you can simply post a message in the following format:

@contributors please review: <link to article you want reviewed>

  • Hopefully some of our contributors will see your message and be able to offer some corrections and otherwise polish the article aesthetically.
  • Keep in mind though that our contributors may be busy with other things or not feel personally qualified enough to help, and thus you may not get an immediate response.
  • Nonetheless we encourage all contributors to submit new articles to our peer-review process to maintain the overall quality of our content.

Formatting unreviewed articles[edit]

In the meantime while you wait for your article to be reviewed please add the following to your article:

  • An {{unreviewed}} banner near the top of the article to make it easier for contributors to find and review it, and alert visitors that it is still awaiting peer review:


Unreviewed Article

This article hasn't yet been peer reviewed by the site's contributors, as such it may be more likely to contain mistakes and/or inaccurate information.
If you wish to learn more about this process the please visit the article on our peer review system. ❤

Reformatting reviewed articles[edit]

To review an article a contributor should double check everything; spelling, citations, formatting, ect. Making sure it follows our Editing guide, and then if nobody objects the {{unreviewed}} banner can be removed and a [[category:reviewed]] tag can be added.
