Hey guys! The Libregamewiki(which I run), the Free gaming encyclopedia are looking for contributors for the wiki project. The wiki launched a few weeks ago and it need your help! So far, we have over 100 articles, 1,400 edits and we're not even close to reaching Wikipedia standard. Plus we have only 10 registered users!

The vast majority of our contents are original. We didn't copy from wikipedia or anything like that.

It is an attempt to comprehensively document the world of Free gaming. In the process, we're collecting informations that nobody collect before like the biographies of game hackers who make the games we know and love like David White of Battle for Wesnoth. There are also contests(such as Pyweek) and games that never got their own article in wikipedia or shortly delete afterward.

Wikipedia won't do that, because they have this notablity standard and the strong unwillingness to document obscure games.

In the spirit of Freedom, we dual licensed our contents under the Creative Common Attribution and GNU FDL.

Our goal is to become the comprehensive resource on Free gaming and to beat Wikipedia. We're getting there, slowly.

But if you guys help us by contributing your Free gaming knowledge, surely we can help make libregamewiki an extremely good resource for all things Free games.

If you're going to contribute, please read our article policy. They're important so that you don't waste time creating contents that does not fit the wiki.

Here are a few tips:

1. Make sure that the game you're creating an article about are properly licensed under a Free content licenses not one of these non-free licenses such as CC NC-BY-SA. More details are in the article policy page!

2. If you have questions, ask us.

3. Be bold! We allow editing on pretty much everything except the front page(for obvious reason)

Well, that's it folk! I hope that my presentation is convincing enough to encourage you FSDaily folks to join in!

Happy hacking!
