Wikipedia’s Five Pillars: Number 1

<translate> Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia.</translate>
<translate> It incorporates elements of general and specialized encyclopedias, almanacs, and gazettees.</translate>

  • <translate> Wikipedia is NOT a soapbox, an advertising platform, a vanity press, an experiment in anarchy or democracy, an indiscriminate collection of information, or a web directory.</translate>
  • <translate> It is NOT a dictionary, a newspaper, or a collection of source documents; that kind of content may be better suited for Wikimedia sister projects.</translate>
