This page is about the Did you know? section that appears at the bottom of the new page with interesting facts and trivia. Every day, three facts are automatically randomly selected and displayed in the section. The idea is that the section provides an interesting way of discovering pages by interested players and may even entice them to write their own articles. The Did you know? items are community sourced, so if you have a neat fact then read on to find out how to add it!

Today's section

Did you know...

  • ... that some of the maps of Hide N' Seek on the Dogcraft Server are taken from world downloads of player bases?
  • ... that during a tour of the City of Havana on Survival 3, Skelleton123 gave ReNDoG a T-Shirt dissing sister city Akkara and that the Akkarans returned the favor in their tour later that month?
  • ... that before the Patreon ranks and boosting system, players could donate to the website in order to become a [VIP] - and that, in fact, a few players who did this still hold the rank to this day?

Format

Criteria

  • The item should contain a link to an article and a corresponding interesting piece of trivia.
  • The item can be niche and specific, but must be interesting to the general public viewing the wiki.
  • The item should be written from a neutral POV. You're encouraged to write an item about your base but again it must be something unique about it.
  • The item should start with an asterisk (*) to create a bullet, then a space, three periods (not the ellipsis character "…") and a space; and end with a question mark.
  • The item should be concise: fewer than about 200 characters (including spaces and the question mark, but not including the ...). While 200 is an outside limit, DYK items slightly under 200 characters may still be rejected if it formats badly or doesn't fit.
  • Item's can't contain templates, due to a technical limitation of Lua modules. This means we can't display player head or rank templates. Sorry!

Examples

Did you know...

  • ... that milk can come from cows?
  • ... that if lightening strikes a mooshroom, it changes color?
  • ... that the Dogcraft Server was started in 2015?

Adding an item

To add a DYK item, edit the Dogcraft Wiki:Did you know/Submissions page and add one to the format outlined above.
