Wikia

Wikia is the definitive place for fans to collaboratively pursue their interests and share their knowledge on the web. Using Wikia, anyone can form new communities around any subject they love or participate in over 250,000 existing communities by reading or contributing new content.

The Wikia Gaming Network maintains many of the largest gaming wikis, including WoWWiki, the World of Warcraft wiki with more than 95,000 articles. Wikia also hosts Wikianswers, a collaborate question and answer site.

With more than five million pages of rich content, Wikia’s communities are the most authoritative information about any topic on the Internet. Launched by co-founders Jimmy Wales and Angela Beesley, Wikia attracts more than 60 million global unique visitors per month and is a Top 30 Internet site according to Quantcast.

Wikia is independent of Wikipedia, and uses a for-profit model with ad revenues. However, the site uses MediaWiki, the same wiki platform as Wikipedia.
