ScribbleWiki was a wiki farm that announced permanent closure of the service due to a server crash, and claimed failure of their (unnamed) backup service, to provide them with a backup. (29th Sept 08) (The blog has since deleted all the comments made during the crisis, but some recollections may be found here at Lumeniki.)

People who want their own wiki should bear in mind that such disasters can happen. (MediaWiki backup instructions can be found here.)

ElWiki was another wiki farm that no longer seems to be available. Many free-of-cost MediaWiki wiki farms are still in service; including: Referata, Wiki-Site, Wikia, and Editthis.info.

Hey Wiki Owners,

The wiki is down right now but we are working on it should only be an hour longer.
