On this page you will find a list of the most frequently asked quesions about The Baseball Wiki.
(Please read this first before consulting a staff member to answer your questions.)
Q: What does TBW stand for?
A: The Baseball Wiki.
Q: What other information does The Baseball Wiki have?
A: We have (or will soon have) information about every professional baseball team in the world, every professional ballplayer, ballpark, baseball-related web sites, rules, history of the game, and just about anything else you can think of that's related to baseball.
Q: Where does The Baseball Wiki get its information?
A: The information comes from personal research from online sources and from newspapers, films, books and a variety of other mediums. Most of the updates and new submissions you see on our site have come from readers, researchers and hobbyists from all over the world such as yourself!
Q: Who runs the project now?
A: The project is run by members of the community. Hundreds of members make up all the different roles. We have administrators which control specific areas of the site behind the scenes, but the database is maintained by its readers. This wouldn't be possible without your contributions!
Q: Is this site approved/sanctioned/funded by Major League Baseball?
A: This site has no affiliation with Major League Baseball or any other baseball organisation around the world, we are 100% independent.
Q: How can I help?
A: You can contribute content, pictures and/or text, to any article you are knowledgable about.
Register and create your own Database Editor's ID and you can get credit for what you contribute!
Q: Must I register to contribute?
A: Yes. For a time, anyone could contribute without registering an account, but this setup came with a few unfortunate side effects, namely vandalism. Requiring registration reduces the amount of vandals and vandalism, also by forcing people to put their name to their work, it adds a sense of accountability to edits.
Q: Does it cost anything to join/read the database?
A: No way! Our project will always be free of charge. If you notice, our site does not have any ugly advertisements either. We are committed to bringing you the best information without the hassle. Our community survives solely on the generousity of our community members. Spread the word!
