|New wiki creation|
|Wikia is not|
Wikia is not:
- purely a hosting company
- Only wikis that are likely to be successful and will appeal to a wide range of editors will be created. Requests are not accepted for personal wikis or wikis for small groups. See Wikia creation policy for details, and Wikibooks for a list of potential alternatives.
- a place to advertise another website
- Wikia is to be used for community editing, not just to put up links to another website. Non-official advertising is not permitted. See advertising.
- a Wikimedia project
- Wikia, Inc. and Wikimedia are separate companies. See Wikimedia for details on the relationships between the two.
- Wikia is not Wikipedia and we aim to not duplicate Wikimedia projects. Although Wikia shares some of the goals of Wikipedia, the two are not "sister projects" since Wikia is not a Wikimedia project (as explained above)
- a link farm
- Wikis on Wikia should contain actual content, not just be a link repository pointing to other sites.
