Wiki Archeology is the process of finding old pages on the wiki that have fallen into disuse and restoring them so they can be applied to a new purpose. As this is a common task due to the badge requirement, this page was created to provide information and facilitate the process.

Tips

There is a link on the side of the wiki called Special pages. This is a good place to look for pages that need attention. The random page button also works well.

Types of Old Pages You May Find

  • Visual Essay - These pages consist of a series of pictures. There is likely not much that can be done to repurpose them.
  • Proposed Tropes/Working Tropes - These are the most promising pages, as good tropes are widely applicable and may appear in the current semesters readings as well
  • Fiction Work Pages - These are pages created about specific works somewhat related to the old working tropes.
  • Spam - enough said

Pages Undergoing Restoration

This page is now obsolete. Please use the new Archaeology Category to label any new Wiki Archaeology pages.

The convention for doing this is similar to linking to another page: [ [ Category:Archaeology ] ] (obviously leave out the spaces).
