The wiki was founded by Postbagboy on September 24, 2005 on Wikia. Post left before he could even make a single mainspace edit. Since then, the wiki went through several transformations, getting a new skin in the beginning of 2010 as well as a new team of admins.
On September 24, 2010, Wikisimpsons had its fifth birthday. In October of that same year, a decision was made to split away from Wikia for ShoutWiki. This was due to a new skin released by Wikia, and subsequent arguments with the staff. Solar Dragon became the founder and steward of this new wiki.
In June 2011, Wikisimpsons completed its move to independence. It now runs on MediaWiki with a nice custom skin. It has since grown very quickly, now beating its Wikia competitor by over 10,000 articles. This independent wiki is funded by way of advertising from GoogleAds.
For April Fools Day 2012, Wikisimpsons was "changed" to a Family Guy Wiki for a day. On project pages, many words like "Homer" and "The Simpsons" were changed to their Family Guy equivalents.
On August 9, 2013, Wikisimpsons started a server move. This server move was completed on August 11. Wikisimpsons also moved to the new URL of SimpsonsWiki.com.
In February 2014, Wikisimpsons Answers was founded at answers.simpsonswiki.com. Despite the name, this is not a wiki but a Q&A site for anything related to The Simpsons.
