Purpose Edit

This Wiki could use a mission statement. It should state the Wiki's purpose, especially what to include in the wiki and what not to include.

This is my suggestion:

What to include:

Wikia wikis can do things that Wikipedia does not want to do. These are the "core competencies" of Wikia wikis:

  • How tos - for example "How to secure your home computer."
  • Details that are of interest only to a few people
  • Original research
  • List things that are not notable

What not to include:

  • Copied Wikipedia content - it would "rot", just refer to it instead.
  • A full list of Malware - as long as there are few editors, this would rot, too.
