I have contemplated doing information work on a blogspot but instead felt it best not to split information sites and instead it would be better to focus here. May I ask where is the to do list and where is the more perfered to do list.

Also I have noticed there is information on setting beyond Faerun that have physicaly connection to Faerun via say Spelljammer.

How much can we do on those? I have for instance a lot of data on say Ravenloft as a simple for instance. Ravenloft is accessable and connected via Curse of Strahd (Adventure Module) and Strahd's Possession / Stone Prophet (Video Games).

I just do not want to step on any unwritten rules and yes I am aware of there being with a for instance of my question, a Ravenloft Wiki. But thats not what I am focusing on.

Thank you and I look forward to getting to work soon.

Greetings and welcome. Firstly, you should know that there are some fairly strict rules about writing in-universe and in past tense (it makes keeping everything up-to-date much easier), and that this wiki only accepts canon material from official sources.

About related material such as some Spelljammer and Ravenloft- such articles are allowed only when they have a noticeable Realms connection, such as Barovia being linked to Faerun in Curse of Strahd, or the other planets in Realmspace being, well, also in Realmspace. If you can find such a connection, feel free to add the information, provided you cite the sources and do not copy the information directly.

And again, welcome.

Welcome! On the main page, if you scroll down, you will find the "Helping Out" section, which has all sorts of info on how to make an article, our editing policies and more. It also has various TODO lists. First step would be to make your user page! Just click on your username to begin.

Unsure if this is how to respond, the forum here is not like anything I am used to. I wanted to thank you both and I appreciate the direction and the clarification. It's why I had wanted to ask before I begin working. Does the wiki have a discord or the like?

Welcome to the wiki! You're using the forum perfectly. The wiki has no Discord, as most information is debated on specific Talk pages or on this forum, so that other users can see the reasoning behind edits. If you want to use Discord to ask some questions about editing or policies, you can add me there (Priest#4847), and I'll happily respond. Happy editing!
