Wikigrounds is a wiki started by NG User:Fire and run by a Newgrounds user team to gather information about www.newgrounds.com. The wiki started in December of 2006, shortly after the old one hosted at www.o3studio.net closed down. Although it fell into a period of stagnation, it was kept afloat by Inclusivedisjunctionalone for two years and has been active again since November 2009. This version of Wikigrounds still suffers some vandalism, but most pages are open to editing by all users, in the spirit of Wikipedia.

Previous Newgrounds Wikis

A number of other attempts have been made to create a wiki for NG both before and after the start of this one.


Promotion and a new Beginning

The various editors decided to try and snowball attention and editing on this wiki to the point where it was self-sustaining. Previous attempts to do this on this and previous wikis were stymied by vandalism and apathy. It was decided in 2010 to make a [club thread] on Newgrounds, which all BBS post could direct to; an on-going series of monthly competitions; contact with other NG-related wikias and contact with Staff. Also, to try and reach beyond people just write pages about themselves etc. The team focussed on aspects of NG other than people and submission, creating pages about the working of NG etc.
