A '''vanity wiki''' is a wiki used as a personal {{w|vanity press}} for advertising (including self-promotion), self-deprecation, or attempts to become an Internet celebrity. A vanity wiki can sometimes be a [[bliki]] used for journaling, propagation of one's ideas and opinions, etc. Vanity wikis typically have only one regular contributor, the owner.
  
The term is by all means a {{tag|point of view}}, because it is more about the believed intentions of the person or persons behind the endeavour, and not about observable facts.  So when anybody calls a wiki names, you know now what it means in this case.
