FAMEPedia:Purpose

From FAMEPedia, The free encyclopedia
FAMEPedia's purpose is to benefit readers by acting as a free widely accessible encyclopedia; a comprehensive written compendium that contains information on all branches of knowledge. The goal of a FAMEPedia article is to present a neutrally written summary of existing mainstream knowledge in a fair and accurate manner with a straightforward, "just-the-facts style". Articles should have an encyclopedic style with a formal tone instead of essay-like, argumentative, promotional or opinionated writing.
Concept of an encyclopedia


FAMEPedia is intended to be the largest, most comprehensive, and most widely-available encyclopedia ever written


FAMEPedia's content is governed by three principal core content policies - neutral point of view, verifiability, and no original research
