DoveArchives does not guarantee validity
The DoveArchives is a free online encyclopaedia that allows you to make and contribute to articles about anything you want. The site itself is a place to edit articles with more personal freedoms. Allowing authors to protect their articles from meddling users and manual of style of style not obligatory.
The DoveArchives project headed by the Sohnlandic government originally began its existence as the Carnifron Archives; A project tasked with categorising all information related to The Sohnland. The Carnifron Archives was the main method by which all mentions of The Sohnland, government documents, intellectual properties, historical and cultural records and relics were secured. Computer files storing these aforementioned assets were kept on an air-gapped network of computers and servers based on the local Sohnlandic run intranet. To make the archives globally accessible, the wiki based website was created. These air-gapped server networks also began as an upgraded form of the former Sohnlandic radio service which was founded and disbanded in 2013.
That is not to say that you will not find valuable and accurate information in DoveArchives; much of the time you will. However, DoveArchives cannot guarantee the validity of the information found here.
