ShoutWiki Ltd.[1] is a free, ad-supported (GoogleAds) wiki hosting service, which uses the MediaWiki software. ShoutWiki offer three different types of a wiki, of which each one has different features: public wikis, private wikis and school/university wikis.

ShoutWiki's staff consists of MediaWiki developers and editors who have plenty of experience with the software. It is currently headed by Cook879 and Lcawte.[2] Unlike most other wiki farms, ShoutWiki offers social tools - features like user profiles, boards, friending and foeing, gifts, awards, and so on - which can be used to enhance the wiki experience and make editing more fun and appealing.

Major outages[edit]

ShoutWiki had a major outage on 17 June 2011 that lasted until around 10 January 2012. Since it took this long time to set up a new server, and probably many wikis would have been moved to another host, staff decided that they'll recover existing wikis on demand.

On 3 March 2012, there was another major outage. This time, however, there was a problem with the backup system; and all edits made since the last recover were lost, so nothing has been recovered since 17 June 2011.

Backups[edit]

There are backups for some of the ShoutWiki wikis at the Archive.org. As of 6 June 2012, there are instant database dumps available for individual wikis. See here.
