Regular tags that are visible in the tag cloud always refer to games. These games are usually in the library, but sometimes tags might also point to an article. For another purposes we use hidden tags that begin with underscore ("_"), these will be useful if you want to be active editor of the wiki.

Article types

Right now there are four categories of articles and tags are used to distinguish between them.

_article - general purpose tag for articles that doesn't fit to other categories
_books - bibliographical
_people - biographical
_practical - tips and info related to meetings, organizing, advertising or other such topics

Development utilities

_draft - unfinished text that awaits comments and discussion (displayed on articles page)
_stub - game in the library that should be elaborated upon
_hidden - game that is not displayed in the library - useful during writing the code of the page (well-defined games don't have preview option)
_decoration - it would be good to add some graphics to this material. In games this is done via Flickr, you can add a photo from your account or found picture that uses Creative Commons license.


Terms for the glossary have for a long time been tagged with their first letter (after underscore like _a or _z). This system was rebuilt but still only letters of english alphabet will be supported.

There are tags that gather glossary entries under a certain topic to add paragraphs in the template. For now this are: _player-types and _player-role.


_print tag is used to mark games ready to print (with description is not based on videos). Printing helpers are still under construction…

But here is an example of a print page: games. For printing without navigation toolbar you can use the button in bottom-right corner of the page.
