As you may have gathered from the original post (as well as the rest of the forum), this is definitely allowed.

There are some restrictions, as outlined by the Perfect World Entertainment Community Rules and Policies:
Quote:
When mentioning, referring and/or linking to other websites, you must ensure that the content of the mention, reference and/or link is appropriate for our community and in line with these Guidelines. If you mention, refer to and/or post a link and such mention, reference and/or posting is automatically censored, it is considered to be inappropriate and you should remove it from your post immediately.

There was a freeforums community website that was advertised; the thread was closed because it was an off site website that could not be controlled by Cryptic of PWE. Hence my question.

STOWiki is completely community driven, so I implore you all to add and update data when you can. This is an invaluable resource for all players, and I hope it comes in as handy for you as it has for many in our community.

Cheers,

Brandon =/\=
As STOWiki.org's current bureaucrat, I'd like to thank you and Cryptic for recognizing our small but committed community, and Brandon for making it happen. This would not have been possible without the tireless effort of our editors and admins (I'm proud of your work, guys and gals!).

I hope that F2P will bring many new editors to the Wiki and help us keeping it up-to-date and fun. As PhyrexianHero pointed out, editing requires no registration and we do our best to be newbie-friendly.

Best regards,
Rachel

Really cool that STO Wiki was recognized! I use it pretty often for items and such, but the one thing lacking is dialog/story line text from missions (think Paragon Wiki for City of...). At some point I may go in and add it, but it's kind of a daunting task.

Given that it's Cryptic doing the mentioning, at this point I think STOWiki links are fine.

And, honestly, I would imagine any off-site links are fine, as long as you're not linking to a porn site, or something infected with a virus or other malware, or something actually illegal. Lord knows I've done my share of linking to stuff like webcomics, blogs, and YouTube, and I've never had them censored, either automatically or by a mod.

As both a contributor and a user of STOwiki, I'm very happy to see the site get the recognition it deserves! Congrats to all those who support and contribute to this great site!

Oh & thanks to Brandon highlighting it. (especially for those new to the game)

Advertising something that is not approved by Cryptic/ PWE beforehand is not allowed. Linking to a website for information is a separate rule. Hope that helps clear up any misconception

STOWiki is a great resource that I have used many times.

Perhaps Cryptic themselves should contribute as part of the community

I just made my first contribution! This is the first time I ever contributed to a wiki, so I would appreciate if someone could check it over and let me know if I did anything wrong.

This page did not exist previously, I created it based on another skill page.
