GuildWiki:We are not Wikipedia
This page is an official policy on GuildWiki.
It has wide acceptance among editors and is considered a standard that all users should follow. Please use the talk page to propose changes.
Just because we look like Wikipedia and share similarities with Wikipedia does not mean we are Wikipedia. Plenty of good Wikipedian policies simply cannot apply here, because we are a repository of both opinion and fact. We are not an encyclopedia! We are a Guild Wars fansite, and the policies here are representative of such.
That said, many of our policies are the same as Wikipedia's (and pretty much all wikis). Any policies we share, but lack an actual policy article for, should be ported over here; it is bad form to link a Wikipedia policy article in support of any action, even if that policy is the same as one traditionally held by the GuildWiki.
