In Memoriam, also known as September 11 Wiki, was a wiki dedicated to everyone who died in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, in the United States.

The wiki was originally a fork of English Wikipedia. It was created in October 2001 in response to a flurry of biographical pages for 9-11 victims that were deemed not to belong on Wikipedia. The solution was to create a separate Wikipedia to cover the attacks - sep11.wikipedia.org - a move unique in Wikipedia's history, and a sign of its still-uncertain scope and direction in 2001. According to Wikipedia's article on itself, In Memoriam was the first sister project ever created for Wikipedia. When the creation of new memorial pages for 9-11 victims died down on the English Wikipedia, activity on the September 11 Wikipedia mostly ceased as well.

Concern eventually surfaced that a wiki dedicated to memorials for the 9-11 victims violated Wikimedia's mission of a collection of wikis with a neutral, worldwide point of view. Discussion on whether to delete the wiki began in 2006. On September 15, 2006, it was made read-only. Sometime in 2007, the content was moved to its new location, www.sep11memories.org, no longer hosted by Wikimedia. The original sep11.wikipedia.org was finally closed on 22 June 2008.

In August 2010, the wiki was reported as offline, and it has not been restored (as of March 2013).

WikipediaThe Free Encyclopedia — is "the free wiki encyclopedia that anyone can edit".

The brainchild of Jimmy Wales, among others, and the original project of the subsequent Wikimedia Foundation (WMF), Wikipedia's stated objective is to have an officially 'neutral point of view' (NPOV); but is often accused by people on one side of a issue of being biased toward the other side. This is true across the political spectrum, as well as for other issues. Wikipedia is the biggest fish in the global wiki pond, and receives far more traffic, and editing activity, than any other wiki. However, despite Wikipedias' claim to being an 'encyclopedia'; many academic institutes and other professional organisations recommend that Wikipedia is not used as a primary source of information, due to the fact that many articles are frequently incorrect, and many articles have a seemingly extremely low threshold of 'reliable source' references and citations. Indeed, many Wikipedia articles fail their own verifiability criteria, and can remain for many years without any citations, dispite warning banners highlighting the lack of said citations (and threatening to delete said unreferenced articles), and this even includes biographical articles for living people. Also, the English Wikipedia allows articles to be 'promoted' to a good article (GA) status despite failing their own criteria on having adequate reliable source citations, editorial conjecture, and even original research.

Historically, when Wikipedia was founded, it released all textual wiki content under the GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL). However, during 2009, existing Wikipedia wikis migrated to a new license – the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 unported license (CC-BY-SA 3.0); and all content published until that migration date could be retro-released under either or both licenses. All content published after the migration date is released under only the CC-BY-SA 3.0 license, as are any newly created Wikipedia language versions. [2]
