We Hate W!K!A Wiki!





  1. Cool, the ultimate irony of hosting an anti-Wikia site at Wikia is hilarious. But I was thinking of a more professional approach, you know, buying a domain name, setting up a site that documents their crimes, annoyances etc.

    It'd be sort of tongue in cheek, but quite cool to irritate Wikia.

  2. A domain name for a site that documents what's wrong with Wikia. That already exists, - or did I miss something amongst the MW1.16 upgrades here somewhere?

  3. Then again, perhaps a simple redirect as would be easier to spell? ;-)

  4. i suspect domain names are beyond rms's understanding, no offence. :P

  5. but didn't readmesoon create it?

  6. This thing has to be some sort of robot...30 August 2009 at 18:03

    == Welcome! ==
    Hi Chewbaccarocks -- we're excited to have We Hate W!K!A Wiki as part of the Wikia community!

    Now you've got a whole website to fill up with information, pictures and videos about your favorite topic. But right now, it's just blank pages staring at you... Scary, right? Here are some ways to get started.

    * Introduce your topic on the front page. This is your opportunity to explain to your readers what your topic is all about. Write as much as you want! Your description can link off to all the important pages on your site.

    * Start some new pages -- just a sentence or two is fine to get started. Don't let the blank page stare you down! A wiki is all about adding and changing things as you go along. You can also add pictures and videos, to fill out the page and make it more interesting.

    And then just keep going! People like visiting wikis when there's lots of stuff to read and look at, so keep adding stuff, and you'll attract readers and editors. There's a lot to do, but don't worry -- today's your first day, and you've got plenty of time. Every wiki starts the same way -- a little bit at a time, starting with the first few pages, until it grows into a huge, busy site.

    If you've got questions, you can e-mail us through our contact form. Have fun!

  7. Carl: it'd be a companion site to Complaintwiki, you know, like an editorial that well, isn't a wiki but a static website, as a spoof.
