I was thinking last night, couldn't the wiki scope into something more like an encyclopedia or uhm.. a compilation of theories written by authors and explorers. There should be a separate place or an explanation on how did they get the bio of the character. It breaks the feeling of unfamilliarity. The backstory part of the bios must remain separate, or as spoilers, to ensure that the wiki feels like a book, a tome written by various authors.


No offense...  angel

Well, characters are separate in the sense that you actually have to click on their names to go to them. It's like going to a different section already. Most humans wouldn't know even the names of these preds, so the list of names under each race is already information that goes beyond regular knowledge.

Besides, an encyclopedia only lists facts, not theories, and making it a compilation of exploration stories would make it hard to make the points we want to convey about a place or race. The Wiki, in the end, is a resource. Making it artistically appealing doesn't help in it's intended purpose, which is conveying information, and making its style consistent is probably a moot point, given the range of topics it covers and the amount of people involved.

But if it is a resource, would the theories listed there would be uhmm... Fictionalized or uhmm... made by the forum people?
