WikiDumper.org is a website created by Clifford A. Pickover that promises to permanently record a snapshot of the “best of the Wikipedia rejects”, articles that are slated for deletion at the site. WikiDumper was launched on November 4, 2006, and accepted user submissions. Although the site does not specify its criteria for inclusion, many of its articles do not cite their sources. The site has been criticized as likely to be accurate as Wikipedia. [1]

The WikiDumper page has its motto “Knowledge’s Last Chance.” It states its mission, “From the bold to the beautiful, from the wicked to the wise, every day the Wikipedia team relegates possibly” inappropriate “submissions to the garbage dump of time. . ”
