Hello, and welcome to the Hockey Movies Wiki.

This is an encyclopedic website about hockey movies. Information about films based heavily on hockey can be found here. It's a wiki that's free and open to the public to which anyone can contribute.

PurposeEdit

The purpose of this wiki is to give movie fans as well as hockey fans all the information they would be looking for regarding hockey movies. It's also a place for fans of hockey films to get together and build a community. So don't hesitate to join us. Just jump right in.

HistoryEdit

Because of his love of both hockey and movies, Dubya Scott decided to start the Hockey Movies Wiki since there wasn't one in existence already. The wiki was created on May 28, 2013 and reached 100 articles a month later on June 27. (The 100th article created was "Lady of Spain".) The 100th image was uploaded two weeks later on July 11. (The 100th image was File:Heaver.png.)

Rules and policiesEdit

While the wiki is open to everyone, there are a few guidelines that need to be followed. Failure to follow any of these rules could result in a ban.

  • Civility - Be civil. It's as simple as that. No personal attacks. Treat other users with respect. They are people too and also want to be a part of this community, so let's welcome them in.
  • Censorship - This is a wiki for everyone, so let's keep it clean. No dirty nor derogatory images or words. The only time a swear word should be used is if it's absolutely necessary in describing something in an article or a quote. (Even then it should be approved by an Administrator.)
  • Plagiarism - While it's easy to just copy and paste something from a Wikipedia article, it's considered plagiarism. Instead of taking something someone else wrote, let's rewrite it in our own words.
  • Point of view - All articles should be written in a third-person point of view. In other words, don't use words like "I" or "me". It should read like a text-book.
  • Vandalism - Going through articles and purposely vandalizing them is strictly prohibited and will always result in a ban. Only add information to an article when it benefits the content.
