This is the original Encyc wiki site, founded in July 2007 and located at Encyc.org/pmwiki, it project was originally named the Encyclopedia Nova Caesarea, and was powered by the PmWiki wiki engine.[1] Encyc is a collaborative encyclopedia, similar to Wikipedia. There are less rules on Encyc, though, and considerably less article pages.

In reality, calling Encyc an 'encylopedia' is very optomistic, as most articles are merely one or two line opinions without any citations or references. Articles are written in a very basic low-level grammar, and are clearly written from a US perspective, therefore not representing a worldview. Many articles contained factual inaccuracies, its 'featured article'[2][3] on World War II being a notable example littered with errors, bias, and untruths!

This original PmWiki version of Encyc has been abandoned. It remained live, and in read-only mode (although it still received occasional edits from the site administrators). It was replaced by a MediaWiki version as found at Encyc.org/wiki. In 2019, that MediaWiki version became restricted and users could neither edit nor view the content. However, as of May 2021, the MediaWiki version returned to a fully functional site, with all pages viewable and editable.
