'''WiKi4All''' was started in May 2005 by a person using the name [http://wiki4all.com/catalog/User:OlegPopov Oleg Popov], apparently based in [[Russia]] or [[Ukraine]]. It was to be an index of all wikis. But he or she didn't set it up properly (eg no "Search" function) and did not reply to approaches, even by email, after a few days. It was later concluded that he or she had some [[link-spam]] purposes in mind. Spammers found it in December and had fun. It is expected to die before May 2006.

WiKi4All.com - public wiki sites catalog. Our aim is to create a full directory or catalogue of wiki websites, each with a brief objective profile. Similar to what WikiIndex.org has become! WiKi4All was started in May 2005 by Oleg Ivanovich Popov, from Kiev, Russia. Sadly, he did not set up the MediaWiki installation properly (eg, no 'Search' function) and did not reply to approaches, even by email, after a few days.

It was later revealed that they had some link-spam purposes in mind, indeed the domain registrant also owned several pharmaceutical spamming domains.

WiKi4All contributors mostly migrated to other similar projects, particularly this WikiIndex wiki! The WiKi4All wiki succumbed to spam bombardment, and was shut down sometime late March 2006.
