Nawapedia User Guidelines and Helpful Tips

Nawapedia is an online encyclopedia for the rope world. Like our sister site SMPedia, we strive to provide accurate and interesting information about notable SM rope artists, models, illustrators, actors, events, groups, clubs, films, educators and concepts. Currently, our mission is to translate SMPedia into English, but we also welcome SM rope information from around the world.
