What is a wiki?Edit
A wiki is collaborative web software that allows users to edit pages (articles) at any time and easily format text and create links to other articles using the wikitext markup language. The concept and software were invented by Ward Cunningham, who created the first wiki in 1994. In 2001 Larry Sanger and Jimmy Wales put this concept to use to create Wikipedia, a wiki-based encyclopedia of general knowledge on every conceivable subject.
Why not just use Wikipedia for everything?Edit
Over recent years successful wiki projects like Memory Alpha have proven that there is a place on the web for smaller, highly-focused wikis and many experts on a given subject gravitate toward them over Wikipedia.
Can I write articles about Japanese cinema?Edit
Yeonghwapedia covers only Korean cinema. For Japanese cinema, please see: Eigapedia, which can be considered a sister project for Yeonghwapedia. Links between the two in regards to Korean/Japanese cinema connections are encouraged.
There are times when it's helpful to the reader to include links to wiki articles not within the scope of Yeonghwapedia. For example, if you're writing about a Kpop star who happens to be in a certain movie, it would not make sense to write an entire article about their respective music group when you can just link to a Wikipedia article. The same goes for Japanese, Chinese, and Thai titles for reasons mentioned above.
