Hi! I'm trying to create these Italian wikis Ikariam Wiki and Europe 1400 (two Gameforge games), but the Italian Gf Community Manager told me that all Gameforge Games' wikis must be officially approved by Gameforge itself. Is that true? Do you know if a permission is required to create a wiki of this kind? Has it to do with image copyright or is the subject of the wiki itself that should be approved by the game creator?

Please solve my doubt...Thank you very much for your help.

They can't prevent you from making a wiki, but they can't refuse permission to use things like images and copyrighted text. The real issue is whether or not they will enforce their demands. I would ask at w:c:it.ikariamitalia:Special:Contact whether Wikia has a policy of not supporting wikis that are explicitly unsanctioned. Remember, almost all of the Wikia fan wikis didn't have prior permission of their topic owners. It is really a matter of will you get a cease and desist letter and will Wikia shut you down if they get a cease and desist letter.
Personally, I wouldn't support a game company that had Gameforge's attitude unless I couldn't live without that game which isn't possible. It's still just a game. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 2:31 PM PST 9 Jul 2010
