A city wiki contains information about specific instances of things, ideas, people and places. Much of this information might not be appropriate for [[encyclopedia]]s such as [[Wikipedia]] (e.g., articles on every retail outlet in a town), but might be appropriate for a wiki with more localized content and viewers. A city wiki could also contain information about the following subjects, that may or may not be appropriate for a general knowledge wiki, such as: * Details of public establishments such as public houses, bars, accommodation or social centers * Owner name, opening hours and statistics for a specific shop * Statistical information about a specific road in a city * Flavors of ice cream served at a local ice cream parlor * A biography of a local mayor and other persons Summary: Please note that all contributions to the The Singapore LGBT encyclopaedia Wiki are considered to be released under the CC-BY-SA Cancel Editing help (opens in new window) This page is a member of 1 hidden category: Category:Pages with broken file links Retrieved from "https://the-singapore-lgbt-encyclopaedia.wikia.org/wiki/Wiki"
