For those familiar with Wikipedia, we'd like to take a minute to explain what our purpose is. Unlike Wikipedia, this wiki is designed for any character, any game, anything about Sega on their own page, instead on in a list or having a small blurb.
Our purpose was defined when Sega Wiki was created. The exact wording is below:
The Sega Wiki is designed to be a database of anything related to the Sega Corporation. It will mostly involve games and consoles, but will also have key people, information about Sega and other things about Sega.
Why a Sega Wiki?Edit
Yes, wikipedia has many Sega articles. But to save space, many articles are converted to small blurbs in a list, as per Wikipedia policy. On the Sega Wiki, we give users a chance to make bigger articles about minor things that wouldn't even get its own article on Wikipedia. Also, as per Wikipedia Policy, trivia sections are being deleted, although these can be very interesting for any Sega fan.
What am I allowed to make?Edit
If you want to add a little to a page on Tails or Knuckles, or create a page on one of the drivers from Crazy Taxi, you are free to do that on this wiki. Also refrain from adding articles not related to Sega. We allow pages about non-Sega consoles that have Sega games on them, but keep the pages short and just list all the Sega games released on them. Also, Sega trivia related to these consoles, like the fact that Microsoft started in the Video Game business with the Sega Dreamcast, would fit nicely on those pages.
What do we hope to have made in the end?Edit
- Biographies of Sega executives and other Sega individuals who have presented or been mentioned in public.
- Sega Console Profiles which will have any information relevant to the console, which will include a link to our forums, where we may have a console care and help section.
- Sega Game Pages which have links to reviews and guides which are externally hosted or can be written by you in the Cheats and Guides section of the forums.
- Corporate Information which can include Sega Corporation history, business decisions, timelines of Sega history.
- Character Biographies which would give detailed information about all the characters in Sega games and games made by other companies including Sega characters.
- Anything else that you feel would benefit the wiki, while being relevant to Sega and gaming.
