Pargon Wikia and Ouroboros Awards
« on: July 16, 2009, 07:31:32 PM »
I saw on a few Wikias that they hold awards of sorts for well written pages and such, and I thought why don't we do that here, unless you already do that and I have just been oblivious to it.

For a while now, I've been awarding Spruce Hammers and Eabrace has been handing out Impervium Wrenches...

That reminds me... *Gives Aggelakis a Spruce Hammer*

We're not a "wikia", by the way. We're a "wiki".

Wikia is a wiki-hosting website. One that we're not associated with any longer.

Anyone can host a wiki.  Wikia (formerly Wikicities) is a commercial venture, founded by Jimmy Wales (founder of Wikipedia.)  They are in the business of providing hosting services for wikis, making money off of ad revenue.

Paragon Wiki was hosted on their site Aug 2007 - Oct 2008.  I'll just say some things didn't work out and leave it at that.  :)
