Encyclopedic entry
Analogous to a "Wiki" an "Encyclopedic Entry" is an article providing factual information on a given topic. However, in the Poiesipedia space the main feature of an "Encyclopedic Entry" consists in the fantastic nature of the reported facts. An "Encyclopedic Entry" posted in the Poiesipedia space can be either totally (events, places, subjects, etc.) or partially (just one of the elements) fantastic. Readers are advised to apply a healthy ratio of "suspension of belief" on reported facts that appear to be close to reality - whatever reality might be. Authors wishing to use this genre for satirical purposes must avoid straight denigration and bad taste. They should just keep in mind that the most powerful pieces of satire were often written in a way that let everybody get the message without providing any angle for prosecuting the authors even in the context of total censorship and authoritarian regimes.\\r\\n
