I have removed the Aircrack site as they are apparently now using DokuWiki. Edward 19:32, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

When I tried to add a new wiki to the page and clicked save, I got the following error: The page you wanted to save was blocked by the spam filter. This is probably caused by a link to an external site. The following text is what triggered our spam filter: http :// I added in the space after http, because it wouldn't let me save this page either. -- 03:36, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

When I tried to add my entry, I got 2 notifications of Spam from:

http:// http://

I removed those entries--Ripthesystem 23:49, 21 September 2006 (UTC)

old-computer wiki[edit]

Old-Computer Wiki - [1]
Wiki about old computers and stuff (we haved moved to a new host!)

we had moved, so i added us back. the old articles were not recovered, as the old host randomly deleted our account - for no reason.

The link is dead now. If it gets fixed soon leave the entry otherwise... – Allen4names 07:33, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

Ancestornotes wiki[edit]

I got a double 404 error at this site [2] Gible 04:25, 14 January 2007 (UTC)


All of these pages are rel=nofollow, which seems like a bad idea. -- 12:36, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

List big impressive companies?[edit]

Just stumbled upon Novell's mediawiki installation, and it got me thinking... How could we build a list similar to this, but with only big impressive companies. I'm talking about 'Fortune 500' companies. Companies which people have heard of. That would good MediaWiki promotional material. -- Harry Wood 10:48, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

Format too wordy[edit]

This is too wordy and using a semicolon (;) for bold doesn't work with the "simple" skin:

;Title - [] :Short description

Instead, I propose the simpler, shorter, and more compatible:

'''[ Title]''' :Description

Eep² 20:46, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Semicolon isn't shorthand for "bold", it's shorthand for "list entry". (And colon isn't shorthand for "indent", it's shorthand for "list entry description".) It's logical markup, not physical markup - it's supposed to be displayed according to the definitions in the skin. --Robkelk (talk) 22:19, 25 December 2015 (UTC)

MDC ?[edit]

Mozilla Developer Center is a multilingual wiki (11 languages, including English, listed at Sites using MediaWiki/multilingual). Does it belong here too? — Tonymec 14:17, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

BMWwiki and BoyWiki are down[edit]

BMWwiki - is experiencing technical difficulties and BoyWiki - has been down for maintenance since 15 December 2007

Should they be removed? --Cnovak 06:39, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Yes, done. —Emufarmers(T|C) 06:50, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Clean Up[edit]

The list needs to be cleaned up. I made the start. Please help! --Aff123a 19:33, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Both spongebob square pants wikis cease to exist. (spongewiki and spongywiki)

Encyclopedia Dramatica[edit]

Is not on this list and uses MediaWiki. 07:58, 7 May 2010 (UTC)


I propose that the following website should be removed from the list as the domain was not registered:

MapleStory -
Wiki to help players of the MMORPG MapleStory.



Devil Dogs, USA- Devil Dogs, USA
a website for gamers.

The link should go directly to your main wiki page. P.S. you forgot to sign so please replace "" with "~~~" to finish your signature, and use "~~~~" for future posts. Allen4names 17:29, 3 December 2011 (UTC)
Yes Done in the D section. Regards. Allen4names 15:49, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

Can't change the link to my wiki[edit]

I'm the admin of the Poser and Daz Studio Free Resources wiki, and I'm trying to update the link to that wiki from to This wiki won't let me - the Anti-Spam rule is kicking in. How do I fix the link to my wiki?

Never mind - I found I can make the update using the "Edit Source" link instead of the "Edit" link.

replace with table[edit]

a table would be useful, so we could show other stats such as "number of contributions" or "number of monthly active users" or something which could be sortable — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2605:6000:1522:4f0a:5cc9:72b:f551:ca66 (talkcontribs)

I'd suggest removing this (and related pages) entirely and point to wikiapiary:, which has such tables already and a big list of sites. --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 10:28, 9 January 2019 (UTC)
@Ciencia Al Poder: I think that's a great idea. This will never stay up to date. —Sam Wilson 00:39, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
