About

Infogalactic is an internet-based, free-content encyclopedia project that is a dynamic fork of Wikipedia and improves upon the online encyclopedia's model of openly editable content.

Infogalactic's pages are interlinked in order to connect the user to related pages with additional information, and are categorized in a variety of ways, including Relativity, Notability, and Reliability to allow the user to prioritize his personalized perspective. [1]

Origins

Infogalactic started as a fork of Wikipedia. Even promising to be free of the problems that plagued the much older site, such as the bureaucracy among its editors, censorship of content, harassment, and vandalism of public figures' pages. [2]

Entry on GamerGate

In October 2016, Infogalactic's entry on GamerGate was overhauled [3] with the reliability of sources in mind, [4] resulting in an article that is a great departure from the version currently found on Wikipedia.


Why Infogalactic Matters

Wikipedia tried to delete and bury pages, like the Cultural Marxism page. [5]

Seven Canons

The Seven Canons are the key principles of the Infogalactic, the site's roadmap explains on how these are implemented. [6]

1. Infogalactic does not define reality.

2. Infogalactic is written from an objective point of view.

3. Infogalactic is free content.

4. No Griefing.

5. Play nice and play fair.

6. Rules are guidelines for users, not chew toys for lawyers.

7. Facts are facts.
