Permitted file types: png, gif, jpg, jpeg
Please do not try to upload things like utilities, ROMs/patches, tile sheets, or anything like that. The only files that should be uploaded are images to be placed in articles. Tools and resources can be linked
to on a game's or console's page (as seen here
), but the wiki is not meant to be a home to this sort of stuff.
The wiki has a narrower scope than the main site. It's for cataloging game-specific (or console-specific) hacking information. ROM/RAM maps, data structures, text tables, list of "ID"s (numbers that identify enemy types, strings, game areas, etc.), or anything else to similar effect.
The wiki has some pros and cons. It allows the typical wiki benefits, such as linking between related articles, advanced formatting capabilities, and a collaborative approach, but you also need to try to adhere to conventions and keep content within the scope of the wiki. You also lose "ownership" of anything you add to the wiki: the community is free to edit, use, and distribute it as they see fit.
The main site, on the other hand, happily hosts utilities, hacks, translations, documents, and more. You don't need need to be as concerned about conventions or scope, and you can slap any license on hosted content as long as it meets RHDN's requirements (the license must permit RHDN to host and freely distribute the content, but could otherwise do things like restrict modification or request attribution).
Some things may be suitable for both the wiki and the main site, but I would recommend sticking with one or the other.The wiki help page
, and the pages it links to, go into greater detail as far as what sort of content belongs on the wiki, where it belongs, and what conventions are preferred.
Hopefully that clears things up :)
