Category:Wiki Age

Category:Wiki Age — this is the root category for categorization of wikis by their age. It contains categories for wikis founded in various periods of time. Yearly categorization was intended to start out, but feel free to add granularity or intervening summarizing time periods if it looks like it's necessary.

To determine the age of a wiki
  • The founder of a wiki probably knows its age.
  • If it is powered by MediaWiki software, there are a number of ways:
    • Go to the 'Oldest pages' at /Special:AncientPages for the wiki and look at the date of the first article (note that this feature lists pages that haven't been edited in a long time, not the oldest pages overall).
    • Check the oldest edit of its main page, eg: http://YourWikiURL.org/w/index.php?title=Main_Page&dir=prev&action=history.
    • Check the date for 'MediaWiki default' at /Special:Contributions/MediaWiki_default made its first contribution.
    • View history for a system message (as found in the 'MediaWiki' namespace – search in Special:PrefixIndex), and check when 'MediaWiki default' first edited it.
  • For Wikia wikis, the exact date of founding used to be at /Special:WikiStats, however, this function is now globally disabled.
    • Wikia 'MediaWiki default' is found at /Special:Contributions/Default.
