This is the original Encyc wiki, located at Encyc.org/pmwiki, which ran on the PmWiki wiki engine. Encyc is a collaborative encyclopedia similar to Wikipedia. There are less rules on Encyc, though.

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.

This original PmWiki version of Encyc has been abandoned, but is still live, and in read-only mode (although it still receives occasional edits from the site administrators). It has been replaced by a MediaWiki version as found here.
