'''Canon''' is defined as the bodies of work that are considered to be "genuine" or "official" within a certain fictional universe.
'''<big>BOB Rules</big>'''
In the case of ''LOST'', the only canon source of information is the television series itself. While the creators of ''LOST'' have never explicitly stated their views on the canonicity of the ''LOST'' novels, websites, etc., we at the '''LOST Wiki''' have chosen to accept information from ''all'' official sources of ''LOST'' story material. In the case of contradictory information, we utilize the following Order of Precedence to determine which facts are "true."
# '''TV series''' - Information from episodes of ''LOST'' overrides contradictory facts from ''any'' other source.
# '''Websites''' - [], [ The ABC Diary] and [ The Hanso Foundation] are official sources of information, though it may be contradicted by the TV show at any time.
# '''Novels''' - The [[Novels|novels]] are considered a form of "official" fan fiction. They are created without the participation of the show's creators, but as long as it doesn't contradict anything shown on TV, information culled from these stories are fit for inclusion on the '''LOST Wiki'''. However, information about characters on the show is not acceptable, only information that pertains to characters introduced in the novels are acceptable.
<u>'''''Note:'''''</u> Information from '''DVD deleted scenes''' and omitted scenes from scripts are '''NOT''' considered canon.
