'''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.

Description

WiKi4All.com appears to offline as of Feb 2006.

Originally this was aiming to be an index of all wikis (just like WikiIndex.com has become). It was started in May 2005 by a person using the name Oleg Popov, apparently based in Russia or Ukraine. 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 revealed that he or she 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 one! The wiki4all wiki then succumbed to spam bombardment itself, and has now been shut down, perhaps by the hosting company (the domain now redirects to a 'blocked' URL) as of Feb 2006
