Template:Popng This page will explain the basic principles behind D&D Wikia as well as its differences from other projects you might have come across.

This is a place for official information

Any Wikipedia-like pages about things related to Dungeons and Dragons are welcome here. Good examples are articles about D&D books, publishing companies, game designers, versions of game mechanics.

Some of the Wikipedia limitations still apply, meaning you should write consistently and try to stay neutral. If you cannot stay neutral and a particular point of view must be maintainted, it is allowed as long as no false information is provided. It is also a good idea to give a link to another article which describes the same subject from a different point of view. No direct bashing of basic D&D principles is allowed: if you don't like it, don't contribute.

This is a place for gaming-specific information

There are a lot of articles that can possibly be written but will never be accepted at English Wikipedia because they will be deemed "unrelevant" and deleted quickly. In D&D Wikia anything is welcome if it is related to D&D, no matter how small is the topic. Those who do not need your article will not read it and link to it, but they will not delete it.

This is a place for your own stuff

You! Yes, you! If you're role-playing, I bet you have something to share. It can be anything from home rules that improve your game and home-brewn spells and monsters to campaign settings descriptions and adventures. You also have unlimited space for images (provided they have legal license status).

We do not have a strict naming convention as dandwiki.com does, so you can name your articles as you want without using brackets. Of course, if you want a page about history, you'd better name it "History of Settingname" to avoid confusion.

This is a part of Wikia community

Wikia community is huge, and this wiki is just a part of it. There are more than 2000 other wiki, and some of them are related to D&D in one way or another. There is a very simple wiki syntax for linking to them (not to Wikias as a whole, but to particular pages in them). There is no equivalent feature in English Wikipedia, dandwiki.com, Wikidot, PBWiki or whatever other service you might use.
