Wikishire is an online open-content collaborative encyclopædia; that is, a voluntary association of individuals and groups working to develop a common resource. The structure of the project allows anyone with an Internet connection to alter its content. Whereas we strive to peer-review articles in line with our polices, you may occasionally encounter articles with errors. Wikishire therefore cannot guarantee the validity of the information found here, as the content of any given article may have recently been changed, vandalised or altered by someone in violation of the policies. Note that most other encyclopædias and reference works have similar disclaimers.
