The DC Database Project came online October 7th, 2005 as a non-profit site, with the goal of becoming the largest online database pertaining only to comics and media published by DC Comics. This site, aka the DCDP, was the creation of Jamie Hari. dc.wikia.com uses the latest technology available to us to present the information in a visually appealing and easy to navigate format. Thanks to the open source software, provided by the MediaWiki foundation, we are able to extend support of this reference to the DC Comics fanbase.
The Database catalogues and adapts information from DC Comics publications into condensed representations used for demonstrative and informative purposes. For a list of external references we use, see our Sources page.
As a wiki, the nature of the Database allows for edits and updates from numerous users, from a variety of places, at a surprising frequency. This often means that it is hard to monitor where this information comes from. We encourage users to list their references alongside any of the content they've submitted. This unfortunately isn't always the easiest task, but it is a necessary one.
We very much discourage plagiarism and if appropriately notified, we will be more than glad to remove, update or appropriately credit the offending material.
That said, fan-fiction and other such original creations by users are not acceptable for articles or blogs.
