Hello!

Been a while since I've created a blog post, but we've all been busy here sifting through the content here, and converting what we have to use the new Infobox system, and creating new content while doing so.

We have been carrying out a de facto content audit while this has been progressing, and we here at Encyclopedia Gaming are deeply troubled by past editing practices. Most notably, a large percentage of articles have been outright copied from Wikipedia, without attribution, with a single revision only rather than the full history, and without the work required to properly integrate them into the site.

This has led to large swathes of our content base looking like a really inferior mirror of Wikipedia. We are currently assessing what do to regarding this disturbing development, and will update the community shortly.
