- Q. I want to list my favorite Chinese restaurant. Town or Database listing?
- A. Both! Then it can be found by Catagory or by Town!
- Q. What if I ruin the page?
- A. The history page saves the last version. It can be recovered!
- Q. Is it free?
- A. The content is free to use under the terms of the GFDL and this site is freely hosted by Wikia. The Google ads help cover the server costs!! Google now shows Wikipedia on many of it's first page responses due to the great content being developed by everyone!
- Q. Is Wikia different than wikipedia.. All these wikis...
- A. Yes. They are run by separate companies, though involve many of the same people. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia. It was not suitable for adding links to small commercial stores or sites. They simply did not qualify for notoriety in an encyclopedia. But there was great demand for the ability to link to local interests! The place for that .. is of course Wikia.
- Q. Wikia doesn't have all the cities listed. Why?
- A. Because you are one of the early visitors! Just like you have heard of on other websites.. someone got them started.. Now you can help by being creative with a blank page!
- Q. Should/Could I put up a photograph on the site?
- A. Can and should! The hope of the founder of the Long Island Wikia is that it will use it's citizens will utilize the considerable natural beauty of Long Island.. to create one of the most special online communities anywhere.
It only takes a pretty picture to get started.
