Differences From the Competition

Creating an article on Wikipedia is very easy but transferring it from the Draft namespace to the Mainspace is just not easy. Wikipedia Administrator and other users with administrative rights reject or decline certain articles because of one reason or two. FAMEPedia was created from the inspiration of Wikipedia's structures and layouts to give everyone the chance of creating Draft articles and getting them reviewed and transferred to the Mainspace where they can appear on Search Engines. FAMEPedia has a wide range of other benefits too, including but not limited to Modern software (Latest MediaWiki version), secure browsing, and Administrators who listen to other opinions.
