Welcome to the Arcade preservation WikiEdit


Remember arcades? We sure do!!

Like coin-operated video and/or pinball games? Want to immortalize the arcades that you played them at, being past and/or present? Well, you can do that here!

Be sure to check out the how to write an article page for guidelines in regards to formatting specifically for this wiki (although it is quite simple as compared to others) and what we are looking for in order to help preserve arcade history.

There have been 92 arcades (and other memories) in five countries preserved since September 14, 2014.

Creating new articlesEdit

Pretty simple stuff, really:

  1. Type up the name of the game room you want to write about in the search box (at left if you're using the Monobook skin, at top center [next to the magnifying glass] if you're using the default Wikia skin) and hit enter. The name should come up in red if using the MonoBook skin; if you're using the Wikia (default) skin, then you would click on the Contribute button at the top right, click on Add a page, then type in the name of your game room.
  2. Click on the name in red and a new page will be ready for you to enter if you're using the Monobook skin, or just hit Enter if creating a new page using the Wikia skin.

And that's pretty much it! There's more to that though, of course, which can be seen in the how to write an article page, plus the head admin can be contacted at his talk page if you have any questions in regards to preserving arcade history.
