The Blogs are a special case of our Encyclopedia articles based on the VaultWiki software.

They differ from the standard Encyclopedia articles in two ways. First the articles belong to a single author, the blogger. They are not developed collaboratively like the Encyclopedia articles are. Second the blogs do not have the policy that they provide "settled knowledge" where little or nothing may be in dispute. That is a valid criterion for an Encyclopedia, but for this area controversial opinions or new insights are welcomed.

The difference between the blogs and the forum discussions is that the blogs are controlled and led by a single individual. When you comment on his or her blog, you are sitting in their parlor and they own the house.

The blogger is also free to edit the original article as the discussion may provide motive to do so. To provide a means to keep the blogger's power in check, the history of the main article is available for all participants to review and all versions of the story are available for review.
