A vanity wiki is a wiki used as a personal 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.

Per WikiIndex community standards, any wiki that (1) only has one user, and (2) is owned by the user who is adding it to WikiIndex, is considered a vanity wiki. Such listings are deleted as spam.


AbbeNormal is a vanity wiki that made it into Wikimedia's interwiki map, where it remains today.
