Main page notice
Managing the main page is easily accessible with the main page template. For explanation of the parameters:

See: Template:Main_page/doc

In progress stuff

  • Tenhou rules - somebody who knows japanese will probably do this page most justice
  • Project:Community portal - could use some fleshing out
  • Terminology - commonly used terminology that could be linked on every page but not linked every time they are listed due to frequent use, example; terms like: koutsu, shuntsu, ari, nashi... etc..
  • Rules overview - shall later link to a page with detailed general rules (either other websites or we make yet another full description), and also link to other specific rulesets (Tenhou, EMA USPML, ...)
  • Overview clean up, simplified as generalized as possible. Specific rulesets go to their own pages. KyuuAA (Talk:キュウ) 11:56, 6 August 2013 (UTC)


  • tell people to edit this thing
  • rules, terminology,
  • Page: yaku - confirm names, grammar etc..,
    • Separate articles for each yaku
  • community portal - where can you meet more people who play/etc.? (online and offline) - i.e. #mahjong, #osamuko, Linköping, ...
  • organisation of information (but this can come much later once there is actually shit to organise)
  • Strategy pages (example)
    • Defense
    • Damaten
    • Etc.


Hopefully this turns into an authoritative wiki. It seems long overdue. --Bps (talk) 02:29, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

What should go on the front page once we make one?

  • Beginner resources, rules page, offline groups, playing online -- these seem essential.
  • What is the exact goal of the community portal, it seems it should also be linked from the front page later?
    • what it says on the tin I guess. I agree it should be clearly linked on the main page --Bps (talk) 16:23, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
  • It's very nice if all wiki pages are somehow reachable from the front page just by clicking in-page links, without AllPages. Simon (talk) 16:04, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
    • agreed - the Special:AllPages link is just temporary while there isn't much content/organisation --Bps (talk) 16:23, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
  • Do not make a section == External links == unless there is at least one non-wiki link following. [[Category:...]] is not a non-wiki link: Put that at the end of the article no matter what section was last, it'll have its own box in any case.

Welcome mat


Just a little something that could be dumped into other people's talk pages, particularly new people. Although, this thing could be better. KyuuAA (Talk:キュウ) 19:52, 1 August 2013 (UTC)

Sample front page

Well, I've tinkered a bit with building a decent looking front page. Although, I am failing to adjust table heights so that both tables are of the same height. Either way, the sample can be found here: User:KyuuAA/sandbox KyuuAA (Talk:キュウ) 10:20, 3 August 2013 (UTC)
