Wiki.yt is a wikifarm created by Guaka. There are two main goals:

  1. Develop Real Social Wikis
  2. Make money through advertising, hosting and consulting

These goals can be in conflict in which case goal #1 prevails.

Real Social Wikis

We want to provide a space that is currently not well covered. Wikimedia Foundation is too big and too bureaucratic and Wikia is way too commercial and annoying for small wikis.

  • Community before profit.
  • Only ads on wikis where it's not inappropriate. (E.g. no AdSense on Veganwiki since it leads to ads for non-vegan products)
  • "Sensible" wikis are hosted for free.
