A vanity wiki is a wiki that is used as a personal vanity press, and may include advertising (particularly 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.

The term is by all means a 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.

Examples
