The Thief Wikia aims to collect general info about the Thief game series (Thief Gold, Thief II: The Metal Age, Thief: Deadly Shadows), and specific info about each game, and the characters, missions, creatures, objects, and loot therein. It should be a resource for the Thief modding community, which still makes FMs (fan missions). It also is home to a mapping project for in-game locations and an level editing database.

- 1. Its repositorial data structure and storage function (Sxerks & Echmier, hopefully you know what I mean by that) means it's a lot more than an encyclopedia. It's an "indiscriminate collection of information".
- 2. It's not even an encyclopedia. In very many cases, there isn't enough information for an article to justify calling it an encyclopedia article, but we still want to include it. We're very far from resting on the Blue Pillar of Wikipedia.
- 3. It is an ordinary "wiki".

- I understand and agree, Larris. For myself, I find the name in the corner serves no function other than to make me smile, and we already regularly call this the "Thief Wiki" anyway, and besides, Googling "Thief Wiki" returns this site as the very first result. I find "Dark Wiki" is more apropos to the Thief community, and as Larris said, this isn't really an encyclopedia (which is why Spix's Circlet and myself are still working on a proper Encyclopedia, when we can).
