Locked wiki

wikis, wiki people and wiki ideas
Jump to: navigation, search

A locked wiki is one which has content available to the public and which may have at one time been open for users to edit but which has since stopped allowing new submissions. This can be for temporary or indefinite periods of time. WikiLeaks, for instance, converted into being a non-wiki but retains "wiki" in the name and uses some modified MediaWiki software. MeatBallWiki became locked in 2010 after issues with spam.
