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.

We are furious advocates of the free content reuse policy of Wikimedia Foundation and our site license and reuse policy was modeled on their own because we want to share our content with the world, and don't believe it should be hoarded or used to make a profit, since like the WMF, we believe information/knowledge ought to be free, and since you can reuse WMF content here (with legitimate attribution), if it's not too much trouble, look at the accompanying WMF wikis for anything you may wish to use for pages here:

L'enfant et les sortilèges
{{{alt2}}}

L'enfant et les sortilèges (The Child and the Spells) is a one-act opera in two scenes with music by Maurice Ravel and a libretto by Colette. It is the story of a child who is reprimanded by the objects in his room after he has been destroying them in a tantrum; the second scene shows the garden where the child attempts to make friends with the animals and plants but they reject his advances because of his past behaviour. These two sets were designed for the première at the Théâtre de l'Opéra-Comique in Paris, which took place on 1 February 1926.
