Ayuda para creadores

Si eres familiar en crear software/hardware o sabes decompilar, C/C++, y ASM, unete al canal #wiidev en EFnet irc-network. Miralo para ver cuales son los temas y objectivos del dia. Reporta cualquier encuentro en el Wiki.

Tambien puedes ayudar a otros usuarios en el IRC enlazando los articulos wiki que respondan sus preguntas, o este articulo y el Canal FAQ para conseguir que mas usuarios se familiarizen en como hacemos las cosas y como lo hemos cumplido.

Ser un editor Wiki

¡La ayuda siempre es necesaria aqui en la wiki!

  1. Deberias registrarte. No es necesario para visitar la wiki, pero ayuda a identificarte a ti y tus programas en la comunidad. Por favor usa el mismo (o similar) nick que uses en el IRC.
  2. Mira el para editar paginas Wiki. No es largo, solo un poco mas de dos paginas. Entra y familiarizate con la wiki.
  3. Lee esta pagina. Es importante para saber que se puede hacer aqui y que no (Especialmente las Reglas).
  4. Mira la lista deQue hacer. Si quieres practicar puedes usar nuestra pagina Sandbox.
  5. Mira abajo para información muy util de la Wiki (Tambien esta pagina que buscando encontrarás como hacer algo, como añadir un articulo a una Categoria).

Que hacer

Lo mas beneficioso viene de las cosas detalladas mas abajo. Los articulos aqui son buenos pero podrian ser mejor. Debemos hacerlos mejores.

Los editores deberian usar la pagina de contribución para proponer cambios y seguir mejorando.

Mejora general

Formato / Organización

  • Organizar todos los articulos que lo necesiten
  • Estar seguro que al editar un articulo sea mas FACIL encontrar la información. Dicho esto, casi cada artículo podía hacer con una fuerte dosis de este. La función deberia venir en el bien de la apariencia.


Mira: Categorias y Lista de paginas sin categorias.

El objectivo es tener *todos* los articulos en alguna categoria.

  • Asegurate de que las categorias son correctas
  • Busca todos los articulos y haz categorias que realmente sean necesarias.necessary.
  • Añade un articulo a las categorias que se ajusten con el
  • Usa las categorias para que las paginas sean fáciles de encontrar.
  • Añade categoria de dessarollo.


  • Inter-wiki linking, aka linking together (i.e. [[ Link ]] stuff). Make sure people know there's an article for something.
  • Linking to relevant websites, articles on other sites, YouTube or other video site videos in articles they're relevant to are needed.
  • See Also sections would definitely make finding related information much easier for users (an example). After just a few hours of reading about progress in the Wiibrew scene, it should be obvious what articles are related.


  • Vandalism most often comes in the form of nonsense and gibberish added to articles here.
  • If you are sure an edit to an article constitutes vandalism (e.g. intentionally false, disruptive, or crude information is added), please use the "undo" function from the article's "diff" page or undo the edit manually.
  • Check who made the edit, and add them to List of Vandals along with a short description of what they did wrong and a link to their contributions page.

Needed articles

Believe it or not, it was over a week after Starlet was announced before there was an article. One of our primary goals is to make sure articles are written quickly and, ideally, cleanly.

Big new developments

Keep an eye out for new developments (These tend to happen frequently) and things relevant to them. Watch the latest videos and lurk IRC for new developments.

Copied articles

Re-copy or write from scratch recently deleted and other articles that are copied from WiiLi or other sites. If copied, be sure to adhere with the license of the original document, to the letter. If the document has been released under the GFDL, such as WiiLi articles, provide a citation in the form of a link on the bottom of the page and a statement saying the document was released under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License.

All wanted pages

The list of Wanted pages is short enough for just a few people to at least give a small article's worth of info on every one. If you know something, please take it upon yourself to add even a tiny bit of info! Any user can request a page by inter-linking (([[Page]])) to a page that doesn't exist yet. Be sure to link to pages that you want to see or think we should have!


Needs to be said, just to be clear. The point of this wiki is to be a definitive source for information about the hardware and software that has to do with running homebrew on the Wii.

The same rules for IRC along with some other wiki-specific rules apply to the IRC. Some of the other rules are loose, some aren't.

Definite Rules

Break these and bad things will happen to you.

  • Never copy and paste articles or do any act of verbatim copying from WiiLi or any other source without following its licensing terms to the letter. If an article exists on a site that has a non-free license that should be here also, start from scratch. Illegally copied articles will be deleted as soon as they are noticed.
    • In the case of WiiLi, the GNU Free Documentation License applies.
      • Verbatim copying requires that a citation must be given (linking to the original article) and a statement that the original document was released under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License.
      • Modifying a copied article requirements can be found on the GNU Free Documentation License page under section 4
  • Always follow the Principles of Wikipedia etiquette
  • All IRC rules

Loose Rules

These are best described as "guidelines".

  • Make a clear effort to find where something fits before making a new article. (Chances are there's a place to put something unless it's *really* new.)
  • Follow the suggestions set forth in the Wikipedia Editing Tutorial. (Adding a description of each edit in the Summary box, etc.)
  • Proper spelling / grammar. (The latest browsers have spellchecking built in or there are plugins available to add such functionality.)
  • Organize and format your writing

There is no reason to break the rules, everything we are trying to accomplish easily fits within them. Just please don't, you waste both of our time. Offending users will be swiftly dealt with.


The chance of someone able to make use of the information but didn't know it existed goes from 0% to 100% thanks to a well-placed link or piece of info. Every edit you make page you change to add more info, format info easier to read and absorb, and everything you link to could potentially speed up homebrew development drastically.

Don't be afraid to editanyone can edit almost any page, and we encourage you to be bold! Find something that can be improved, whether content, grammar or formatting, and make it better.

You can't break the wiki. Anything can be fixed or improved later. Follow the rules and contribute good edits and you'll be making friends in no time.

So go ahead, edit an article and help make Wii homebrew possible! Welcome. :)
