Description[edit]

Wiki.Wiki was a free MediaWiki wiki farm, or a network of wikis, which hosted around 100+ wiki sites in thirteen (13) languages (as of 2017). Wiki.Wiki sites ran on MediaWiki, the free and open source wiki package ('wiki engine') written in PHP, originally created for use on Wikipedia. MediaWiki is used extensively by other Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) projects, and remains the world's most popular wiki software.[1] The wiki sites on the Wiki.Wiki farm were licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International license (CC-BY 4.0), and was started in 2014.

In December 2016, the ability to directly create new wiki sites was removed, and attempting to request a wiki returned a message saying: "We are evaluating our program right now and are not creating new wikis for a while".[2]

On 28 September 2017, an email was sent out saying that the service would be shutting down on December 1. The website then showed a message which stated: "wiki.wiki has closed. It was a great run, but unfortunately, we had to close down wiki.wiki. If you did not retrieve your wiki before it went offline, please send an email to help@wiki.wiki". The last wiki front page of Wiki.Wiki was archived by the Internet Archive WaybackMachine at Archive.org on 3 October 2017. The last sample by WikiApiary in November 2017 show 71 wiki sites listed.
