The answer is simple, if you want to wing it, wing it, just don't trample on threads where others want to put a bit more effort into it.

Is this about having a bit of fun? Why make rules about the content? Can the contributors not just 'wing' it? That sounds a lot more fun than researching. By all means, if you have the ability, use it. But you must also allow for a person just trying his/her hand, and not needing to worry about being perfect, or grammatically correct, or historically accurate.
Don't make this more intellectual than it actually is. It is just people having fun.
