I adopted this Wikia recently and work on it almost every day when I can. I strongly believe this Wikia has great potential, and I'll sure be grateful for any contribution you can do.
A little about myself: I'm an experienced roleplayer, DMing (mostly (A)D&D, but bits of Fuzion, diceless and massive combat systems occasionally) since 1998; I'm a regular contributor to the big Wikipedia (have about 2000 edits in three languages); I run three home-grown wiki-based encyclopedias as an administrator and a major contrubutor (one for my game setting, one for another game where I play a plot-critical character, and one for another game I'm running); and I'm Russian.
Feel free to contact me on my talk page and correct my mistypings and language mistakes anywhere where I can make them.

Pages to remove
Most of really unneeded stuff was deleted right after I was given admin staus, but these pages are still alive for different reasons:
- Probably: Category:Dungeons and Dragons Adventures, The Curse of the Evil Sorcerer, Help on these games, The Curse of the Evil Sorceror, Game 2, Dungeons and Dragons adventures, (no-one uses this stuff since July 2006)
- Mission Statement, General disclaimer (redirects nobody will ever use)
Pages to move
- all done
Pages to protect
- all done
- All future Template:SRD... pages should be blocked for editing.

To do list
- Update News section regularly (weekly).
- Migrate all SRD material in this Wikia, break down the already integrated material into smaller pieces.
- Get as much info from the English Wikipedia as possible (settings, companies, authors, whatever)
- Fill all books published by WotC, Green Ronin, Necromancer Games, S&S, Malhavoc Press, etc.
- Write some nice and funny articles on dwarves, GURPS, Dungeon Master, etc.
- Make up a nice glossary: alien eyes, dungeon crawl, outdamage, gish, bag of rats, chainmail bikini, line of sight, munchkin, rules lawyer, home rules and other stuff like that.
- Find all related Wikias and link them consistently or copy their material.
- Integrate some Salveblues bits here(?).
- Promote the Wikia!
