Queerdom Wiki

As a community, it's our responsibility to grow the wiki! One of the ways of doing this is through page creation. Anyone can create a page - you do not need permission, however, pages can and will be taken down if they are disobeying our guidelines. This page will show you how to create a page, as well as what pages should and shouldn't be created, along with how pages should look and what they should include.

Creating Pages

To create a page, simply click the 'new page' button in the top right of the screen, it looks like a folded page. From then, you can now name your page and enter the page editing screen. If you're not sure how to add text, headings, images, categories, and such to a page, feel free to ask the community or do some research before creating a page.

You can create any page that is a sexuality, gender identity, or LGBTQ+ identity in some way. You do not have to identify as the term nor have coined the term to create a page on an identity.Listed below are pages that should not be made:

  • No 'joke' pages - these will be immediately taken down
  • No pages for cultural identities if you personally, are not a part of that culture - this is to reduce the amount of cultural identities that get misrepresented on other fandoms due to outsiders creating or massively editing the pages (exceptions can be made if you are working on the page collectively with others of that culture)
  • No pages for alternate names or spellings of the same term - these can be listed on the term's page
  • No pages for individual pronoun sets
  • No pages specifically for a flag, alternate flag, symbol, or similar
  • Pages are not needed for every variant of a gender (-fluid -flux -fluix demi- -boy -girl etc.) - these can be included under a modifiers heading on the same page if wanted
  • Pages are not needed for every romantic variant of a sexuality - again, these can be included on the same page if wanted, a romantic counterpart can be made if significant enough
  • Pages are also not needed for every variant of tertiary attraction - only make these pages if it is significant enough

Page Design

Below is a typical template we like most pages on the wiki to follow:

-Some pages will include a suitable infobox here-

{if there is a term similar in name or definition but is not the same add "Not to be confused with <term here>"}

{main flag}


History & Coining (heading)

{who created the term and when}

Flags & Symbols (heading)

{who created the term/symbol and when}

Modifiers (optional heading when applicable)

{>modified identity, coined date, flag coined date}


Example Identities (optional heading - for bigger pages and umbrella terms only)

>{linked example} - {short meaning}

Etymology (optional heading - for terms that have pre / suffixes that have a meaning behind them)

{"pre/suffix" with it's meaning / origin}

Resources (heading)

{links to other pages with the term and research on the term if necessary}

Alternative Flags (optional heading - for identities that have more then one alt flag)

{insert gallery add alt flags}

If you are still unsure, use other pages created by admins as a reference, or leave out parts you do not know how to create and leave it to someone who does!

Design Guidelines

Below are the general guidelines for designing pages

  • 1) Do not include specific sets or recommended sets of pronouns with a coined gender identity - pronouns don't equal gender
  • 2) If you are not the original coiner of a term, be sure to stay true to the definition of the original term in creating the page
  • 3) Give proper credit for everyone involved in coining the term and flags - this is not applicable for terms with lost coiners
  • 4) You don't have to include every single alternate flag - the first flag is the minimum you need and it is completely alright to only include the first flag
  • 5) Try to keep everything well-sized - make sure flags are not taking up the entire screen and that text is properly sized for its purpose (paragraphs being in normal text and headings being in heading text)
  • 6) Take a look at the categories listed on the home page to make sure your term is going in the right category(ies)
