It's come to my attention that content posted to Wikia is implicitly licensed the Creative Commons CC-BY-SA license. It seems to me that this is is incompatible with Paizo's Community Use Policy. The good folks at Wikia are unlikely to take kindly to removal of content, so instead I propose that we begin by taking a page form Necromancer Games.
Necromancer seemed to believe that using a similar but different name they would not be breaking WotC's copyright (as evidenced by The Original Spell Name Compendium). I think that we should be able to do the same thing. Gozreh could become Gozrah, Aroden could be Aradan, and Sandpoint could become Sandspont. This would get us over the hump of proper nouns. We could do most of this with bots.
The harder part would be dealing with story elements. I'm open to suggestions on how to handle that.
To complicate things further, content might be licensed under both the CC-BY-SA and the CUP/fair use. For example, if I were to describe Golarion such that the description would invoke the image of Paizo Publishing's Golarion, then my description would be licensed under the CC-BY-SA, but it might contain content which is copyright to Paizo Publishing (used either under fair use or through the CUP). Thus, both licenses are compatible for use on this wiki.
I read through the CUP, and while it is very liberal, the amount of content being licensed is very, very limited: "You may descriptively reference trademarks, proper names (characters, deities, artifacts, places, etc.), locations and characters from products listed [...]". I do not believe that the CUP offers sufficient material for Galoriopedia, and as such a bulk of the content on Wikia is fair used and not through the CUP at all. That which is through the CUP should be stated as such.
I'd also add that removing mass amounts of content for legal reasons should not be handled by any User or Admin and instead left to the discretion of Wikia staff (and to be clear, I am NOT Wikia Staff—I am just a user).
