Description[edit]

Wiki.Wiki was a wiki farm, or a network of wikis, that hosted around 100+ projects in 13 languages (as of 2017). Wiki.Wiki projects ran on MediaWiki, the free and open source wiki package written in PHP, originally 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 farm was operated under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International license, and was started in 2014.

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

On September 28, 2017, an email was sent out saying that the service would be shutting down on December 1. The website currently shows a message which states: "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 the Wiki.Wiki was archived by the InternetArchive WaybackMachine at Archive.org was 3 October 2017.
