Forums: Index Index Lack of References = Potential Fanon

One of the most troubling problem that has been plaguing Xenopedia is the lack of references; the administration team in the past solved this problem by copying off Wikipedia, which led to another problem Copy+Pasting=Wiki. I would appreciate if the current Administration Team enforces some kind of Reference Policy to ensure that we wouldn't have made-up/fanon content in this wiki; failing to do so lowers the credibility and reliability of the wiki. One of the challenges of the AVP universe is the insurmountable amount of new media and to actually reference them would be very hard. As such, it is best if we start referencing everything that we got early Halopedia is still a victim of this problem, but DeadSpace Wiki manages to avoid it.

Additionally, I suggest that the Administration Team starts constructing policies and an official set of rules in Xenopedia to ensure that the wiki runs in an organised and well-maintained manner; something that is not entirely relied on Wikia rules and policies.
