The Original Tombstone Tourist (“TOTT”) is an online open-content collaborative EFFORT; that is, a voluntary association of individuals and groups working to develop a common resource of popular culture knowledge. The structure of the project allows anyone with an Internet connection to alter its content. Please be advised that nothing found here has necessarily been reviewed by people with the expertise required to provide you with complete, accurate or reliable information.

That is not to say that you will not find valuable and accurate information in TOTT; much of the time you will. However, TOTT cannot guarantee the validity of the information found here. The content of any given article may recently have been changed, vandalized or altered by someone whose opinion does not correspond with the state of knowledge in the relevant fields. Note that most other encyclopedias and reference works also have similar disclaimers.

No formal peer review

Our active community of editors uses tools to monitor new and changing content. However, TOTT is not uniformly peer reviewed; while readers may correct errors or engage in casual peer review, they have no legal duty to do so and thus all information read here is without any implied warranty of fitness for any purpose or use whatsoever. Even articles that have been vetted by informal peer review or featured article processes may later have been edited inappropriately, just before you view them.

None of the contributors, sponsors, administrators or anyone else connected with TOTT in any way whatsoever can be responsible for the appearance of any inaccurate or libelous information or for your use of the information contained in or linked from these web pages.

In its encyclopedic function, TOTT contains thousands of articles on a vast array of topics. A relatively small fraction of these topics are frequently censored by educational, governmental, corporate, parental, and other filtering schemes.

  • Some TOTT articles discuss words or language that are considered profane, vulgar, or offensive by some readers. 
  • Articles may contain audio, visual, or written representations of people or events which may be protected by some cultures.
  • TOTT contains many different images and videos, some of which are considered objectionable or offensive by some readers. For example, some articles contain graphical depictions of violence, human anatomy, or sexual acts.
  • Many articles contain frank discussion of controversial topics. Some subjects that are discussed have criminal applications in some jurisdictions. Others contain information on dangerous or otherwise risky activities.
  • TOTT contains spoilers.
  • TOTT may contain triggers for people with post-traumatic stress disorder.
  • TOTT may contain images and videos which can trigger epileptic seizures and other medical conditions.
  • Since TOTT is open to contributions from the public, there may at any time be vandalism present on TOTT.
  • TOTT ‘s current policy is to include such content, provided it breaches neither any of our existing policies nor the laws of the United States, where TOTT is hosted. See a list of controversial issues for some examples of articles that may contain such content. None of these articles contain warnings.
  • In any case, TOTT is a work in progress, and many articles contain errors, bias, or duplication, or may simply need tender loving care. We encourage readers to help us fix these problems. The great majority of articles are written primarily or solely by individuals who are not subject matter experts and may lack academic or professional credentials in the area.
  • TOTT contains obscure information that would not be covered in a conventional encyclopedia. TOTT ‘s coverage is based on the interests of its volunteer contributors.
