How you can contribute

Don't be afraid to edit – If you have something to contribute, you should add it, we are encouraged to be bold!. Remember – you can't break the Wiki; Mistakes on the wiki are pretty easy to fix, as all edits can be reversed, fixed or improved later, and we would rather have editors who contribute plenty of information and make a few mistakes than have editors who never add their information because they are too worried about not being able to do it perfectly. Remember that perfection isn't required. As you get more comfortable with the wiki, you'll probably want to familiarize yourself with the Manual of Style, but you're likely to learn as much from the experience of actually editing as from reading about it. So go ahead, edit an article and help make it the best Song of Ice and Fire information source on the Internet!

Improve pages

These are some basic ways that you can improve the site:

  • Fix errors such as grammar or spelling mistakes. Large quantities of small fixes can greatly improve the quality of the wiki.
  • Expand and Improve – Many articles can be expanded and improved upon. You could roam the site looking for articles that you feel are too vague, missing information, or need re-wording of sentences and paragraphs so that they would be more understandable. If you notice information that is missing from an article, add it. You could also expand upon Stubs, which are articles that have not received substantial attention from other editors and do not have a sufficient amount of information.

Additionally you can:

  • Write a new article – Have we missed a character, location or anything else? You should add it. Also see the Wanted list. If there are a lot of pages that link to an empty page, you may want to create it.
  • Add Images – There are many artworks, screenshots, maps, and other images that would help to make articles more informative. See Help:Images on how you can add and use Images.
  • Format pages – If you're good with Wiki markup and/or Help:Templates, you can look for pages that need to be improved visually.

Adding Links:

  • Translate and link – Translate articles from our French and Russian sister projects and make sure we are linked properly with them.
  • Link pages – Add links to Orphaned pages


  • Flag pages – Locate and mark pages that need expanding, Cleanup/Improvement and/or are Outdated.
  • Sorting out the imagesOur uncategorized images needs to be sorted out. Images need to be added to the category page of the artist who made the picture and the category page of the character who is depicted in it. For instance if an images is made by the artist TheMico you can add it to his image category page by adding [[Category:Images by TheMico]]. After the images has been added to the right category please remove its link to the Category:Character_Images.

Helping the Community

  • Monitoring Articles, you can monitor the recent changes and/or watch articles, to catch and fix mistakes.
  • Helping Other Users, many users don't know some of the ways they can help on the wiki. You could help them out by sharing with them some of your knowledge, and encouraging them to get active and find something to start editing. Check out the [Forums] and the little stagnant Questions page.
