Services and features

Wikis

Wikia is a collection of online encyclopedias. ALTHOUGH Wikia Allows Almost anything to be the main focus of a wiki, The Most common interest of Wikia internauts is in popular fiction franchises of books, movies, games, and other media, due to the considerable restriction of Such detailed information by Wikipedia’s notability policies .

Wikipedia articles on Wikipedia article on “Wikipedia article”. [26] For example, Spiteful Crow, an enemy character in EarthBound , may have its own article on EarthBound wikia, [27] but the character may not be considered sufficient for a Wikipedia page. Also, the writing style is mostly directed to those familiar with specific vocabulary and terminology rather than to the layout and general public of Wikipedia.

Wikipedia articles on Wikipedia articles about Wikipedia article on video games and related video game topics, detailed instructions, gameplay details, plot details, and so forth. Gameplay concepts can also have their own articles. Wikinews Wikipedia has an article on Wikinews, the free dictionary Jump to: navigation, search Wikipedia has an article on: Wikipedia [28] [29]

Wikia requires a free license; [30] most use the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License, although Memory Alpha and Uncyclopedia use a noncommercial variant and some use the GNU Free Documentation License . [Nb 1] [31] Wikia’s Terms of Use forbid hate speech , libel , pornography or copyright infringement . Material is allowed, as long as it does not duplicate Wikimedia Foundation projects. [32]

Wikis are not owned by their founders, nor does the founder’s opinion carry more weight in disagreements than any other user’s opinion. Consensus and cooperation should be the primary means for organizing a community. [32] However, Wikia may take decisions affecting the community even if there is no consensus at all. [33]

Technology

The Wikia file as of June 2011 includes over 8 million files stored on SSD . [34]

As of August 2015, Wikia uses a heavily modified version [35] of MediaWiki software, based on the version 1.19 [36] of MediaWiki, which was officially marked as obsolete in May 2015. [37] It has more than 250 extensions installed, [36] MOST of Them created by Their staff of developers, to social add features like blogs, chat, badges, forums and multimedia, [38] goal aussi remove features like advanced user options [39] [40] or skins other than Their Default custom skin and Monobook (available only for personal use). [41]

In August 2016 Wikia announced it would switch to a Service Oriented Architecture. [42] It has also removed many custom extensions and functionality for specific wiki. [43]

Entertainment news magazine

In 2016 Wikia launched Fandom, an online entertainment news magazine. The program uses volunteer contributors called “Fan Contributors” [44] to produce news-style articles, working alongside an editorial team employed by Wikia. In contrast to the blogging feature of individual wiki communities, Fandom focuses on pop culture and fan topics such as video games, movies and television shows. The project features fan opinion, interviews with property creators, reviews and how-to guides. Fandom also offers a variety of activities,

In September 2016, it was announced that the entire Wikia platform would be rebranded under the Fandom name on October 4, 2016. [6]

Private marketing

Wikia currently runs the Wikia Fan Studio, a private platform that allows creators to give their users a user group. All participants remain anonymous and are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement to keep early access information confidential. Fan Studio features such as testing for games, early releases of television episodes, a chapter of a book, etc. The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of the popular culture and culture of the Internet.

Wiki partnerships

Wikia has created several official partnerships to create wikis, vetted by the corporation as being the “official” encyclopedia or wiki of a property. In 2014, Wikia partnered with Roddenberry Enterprises to create the Trek Initiative, a Wikia hosted wiki community site that features video interviews, promotions and other material about Star Trek to celebrate its 50th anniversary. [45] In 2013, Wikia partnered with SOE (now called Daybreak Games ) to create free wikis for several of their games as Free Realms , Planetside 2 [46] and the Everquest franchise. Wikia made similar partnerships with 2K Games during the launch of Civilization: Beyond Earth [47]and Warner Bros. Interactive for Shadow of Mordor . [48] Wikio also has partnerships with Lionsgate Media to promote Starz and Film franchises through wiki content, fandom articles and advertisements.

Controversy

Wikia communities have complained of inappropriate advertisements, or advertising in the body text area. [49] Wikia usually owns the relevant domain names. If a community leaves Wikia for new hosting, the company typically continues to operate the abandoned wiki using its original name and content, adversely affecting the new wiki’s search rankings, for advertising revenue. [50]

Domain and skin assimilation

Wikia has an extended wiki’s domain name, user lists, and databases, from a founder or co-founder in return for money and stock options . [51] The original wiki is then shut down without consulting its editors or wider community, and the domain redirects to Wikia’s version of the project. In the case of the acquisition of Uncyclopedia .org from Jonathan Huang in July 2006, [52] gamewikis.org from Phil Nelson in October 2007, and memory-alpha .org Doddema from Harry and Dan Carlson in January 2008, [53] the Content was under a non-commercial license.

In June 2008, Wikia adopted a new skin , Monaco , intending to implement it on the all hosted wikis. [54] Many wiki users felt the choice of skin should remain their own. The switch went ahead, but some wikis retained Monobook as their default. In September 2008, the Transformers Wiki moved to their own server, citing the format-altering ads and mandatory changes for their departure. [55] [56] WikiFur moved likewise in August 2009; [57] the Nethack wiki moved in November 2010, [58] and the Doom wiki in September 2011. [59]

In May 2009, Wikia removed the ability of individual users to choose a skin other than Monaco or Monobook , claiming a burden test and relative lack of features. Soon after, Wikia removed the option to set the default skin to Monobook , with the exception of certain large wikis, namely, Uncyclopedia. [60]

Relationship with Wikipedia

Wikipedia has an article on Wikipedia . [61] [62] Although Wikia has the same meaning as in Wikipedia, [63] [64] Wikimedia [65] and Wikia staff [66] call this description inaccurate.

In 2006, the Wikimedia Foundation shared hosting and bandwidth costs with Wikia, and received Some Donated office space from Wikia During the fiscal year ending June 30, 2006. At the end of fiscal year 2007, the Foundation Wikia Owed US $ 6,000. In June 2007, two members of the Foundation’s Board of Directors also served as employees, officers, directors of Wikia. [67] In January 2009, Wikia subleased two conference rooms to the Wikimedia Foundation for the Wikipedia Usability Initiative . [68] According to a 2009 email by Erik Möller , deputy director of the Wikimedia Foundation:

Wikia when suggesting a rate. We do not know what to do. The averaging also resulted in a roughly equivalent to the most comparable space in the running. [69]

Relationship with wiki communities

Wikia often implements new features or branding choices, which individual wiki communities disagree with, and giving little or no customization options. Wikiversity is the most widely used language in the world. [70] [71]

Wikia, Inc.

Wikia and Wired Building location

Wikia, Inc. is based in San Francisco , California . [72] The company was incorporated in Florida in December 2004 and re-incorporated in Delaware as Wikia, Inc. on January 10, 2006. citation needed ]

Wikipedia has an article on: Poznań , Poland . [15]

Wikia derives income from advertising. The company initially used Google AdSense , [73] but moved on to Federated Media before bringing in management in-house. [74]Alongside Wikia’s in-house advertising, they continue to use Adsense as well as Amazon and other third party advertising services. Wikia is the most widely used and most widely used.
