If you are looking for up-to-date information about any aspect of Star Trek Online, make sure to check out STOWiki. You can get there by clicking here, or using the link in the "The Game" drop down menu on our front page.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
