ShoutWiki Ltd. 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. 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.
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.
