A wiki is an informative website, often an encyclopedia, designed to be quickly updated and largely open to contribution. Wikipedia, created by the Wikimedia Foundation in 2001, is the most successful and well-known wiki. The first wiki ever was WikiWikiWeb, founded in March 1995. Since the 2000s, wikis about many different subjects and with many different styles emerged, including political wikis (such as Conservapedia and RationalWiki), humorous wikis (such as Uncyclopedia and Encyclopedia Dramatica), as well as Wikia (Fandom), a domain reserved for free wiki creation that gave origin to thousands of wikis about popular media franchises among other subjects.
