Why is the Wiki here?Edit
Wikia itself has no opinion or prior involvement with the RPG Maker community. In that sense, wikia is completely neutral to the various factions within the RM community. That is why the wiki is here. It can not be influenced in favor of one faction or another, as compared to RM wikis on clearly RM sites such as RMXP.org which are ultimately controlled by a non-neutral party. That is why it is perfect for this wiki to be hosted here.
Why should I contribute to RMwiki?Edit

How do I create a page?Edit
How do I edit a page?Edit
RPG Maker Wiki, like other large wiki projects (such as Wikipedia) is based off of the Mediawiki software. For information on how to edit and create pages, please see the 'Editing Wikipedia' article on wikipedia.org.
How do I use the templates?Edit
Simply copy and paste the source code from the template into the page you're creating, then edit the pasted code to your own taste.
Can I make a page about _______?Edit
Can I upload _______?Edit
How do I post images into my article if I can't host them here?Edit
Use [image-url-here Display text here]
The idea was that you post url links, in brackets, as pasting just the URL turns the URL into a hotlink of the image. Then the fact that it doesn't handle hotlinked images well becomes trivial, as it won't hotlink at all when it's in brackets. Sorry, there's no way to resize images not hosted on the wiki.
What's the catch?Edit
No catch, RMwiki offers you the chance for free easy advertising. However, it would be appreciated if you contribute in ways other than for the benefit of your own work.
