I hope this is the correct section for this kind of thing.

A couple of the other forums on which I've RPed had a 'wiki' for detailed character bios, guild lore, and the background info for other groups relevant to their stories or RPs: covens, groups ext.

Example!

If there was enough interest in it, would the creation/maintenance of one be a possibility for this site? Obviously the mods would want to ensure their work would be made use of, so perhaps a pole of some sort to find out interest from the RP community would be an first step.

I've been taking part in that sort of thing for years now, and it can be very nice and enhance a roleplay community. That said however, TESOF is not solely a roleplay site, it's a forum for TESO in general - covering gameplay, lore and roleplay. We're very proud of our RP-section and are really happy to see how it flourishes, but to set up a TESOF-RP wiki would simply take too much time for something that is not our main focus on this website. People are free to set up something of course (like the well-known archives, such as this and this), but the staff here at TESOF will sadly not set up a wiki anytime soon that is solely for roleplay.

I could help with making one....

What exactly would this Wiki do? Provide a blurb for the RP? A handy guide to prominent characters in the TESOF universe? Nah, we'll read it for the first couple of days and then it will just become 'part of the furniture'. We've managed before without it, we can manage now, even with the influx of new RPers.

Sadly this is true.

As great as the idea is at first (and don't get me wrong, it often turns out great as well), RP-wiki's tend to, over time, just grow into places that are clogged with outdated information and take a very active staff and a very active community to maintain. I'd personally never take on such a project prior to launch, and even after I'd be hesitant, also because full-on RP sites tend to grow into nasty places with nothing but gossip and word to mouth-behaviour (I speak from experience and there is a reason I avoid sites nowadays that are 100% about RP).

But, TLDR; as Iogairn said, it's not really something TESOF needs right now, and since there's a lot of work on our to do-list that does take priority, we'd rather focus on that :)

As always: <3 you all.

Fair enough. Its probably true we don't have enough dedicated RPers to make it worthwhile. I'm mostly interested in a more detailed bio format for my characters, so I'll look around and see if there are any other TESO sites with one.
