Welcome to the id Software task force of WikiProject Video games.

The aim of this task force is to organise, expand, clean up and improve articles relating to video games and products created by id Software. If you would like to participate, you can start by joining the project below and/or contribute to the discussion on the talk page. Be sure to also check out the to-do list for some of the project's ongoing tasks.

To indicate that an article falls within the scope of this task force, simply add "|idSoftware=yes" to the {{WikiProject Video games}} template on the article's discussion page. For example, {{WikiProject Video games|idSoftware=yes}}.

edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for Wikipedia:WikiProject Video games/id Software:

Here are some tasks awaiting attention:



  • To create well-written and properly organised encyclopedic coverage for all relevant video games, technologies, people, fictional aspects and other notable concepts relating to id Software
  • To create a consistent style for all relevant articles and related topics
  • To streamline navigation between relevant articles
  • To be a community of editors who like to focus on the improvement of articles relating to id Software
  • To indicate articles in need of improvement using our "to do" list


  • This task force aims primarily to improve and organize articles relating to id Software. It attempts to organise and coordinate the efforts of editors and create standards for constructing good articles.
  • Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a fan site. Accordingly, we do not need articles that cover fictional aspects from an unencyclopedic viewpoint and do not conform to notability guidelines. Likewise, articles on video games should not focus on how to play the game or on the game's story, but rather give a balanced encyclopedic overview of the product. Our criteria for inclusion, as it is on the rest of Wikipedia, is notability in the real world, not in the subject itself.
