The Wikigrounds Logo

Wikigrounds is a wiki started by NG User:Fire and run by a Newgrounds user team from the previous wiki 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 Inclusivedisjunction alone 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 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 writing pages about themselves etc. The team focussed on aspects of Newgrounds other than people and submissions, creating pages about the working and finance of NG etc.

Recognition

After various BBS events in the beginning of 2010, the site finally got recognition from various significant people:

  • xwaynecoltx praised it in our club thread
  • Wade Fulp came and edited it, explaining in a PM that he was fed up with people reading incorrect data from his Page when they searched and found Wikigrounds high up on the search engines.
