Wikisimpsons: The Ten Year Wiki!


Today it’s September 24, 2015. It’s a special day for Wikisimpsons. It was founded 10 years ago today! This post is a post to celebrate the wiki’s 10th Anniversary.

To celebrate, we’ve painted the site pink and launched our brand new site layout! Additionally, no advertisements will be displayed today to thank all of our editors and viewers for making Wikisimpsons the greatest Simpsons resource on the internet.

A Brief Summary of the Wiki’s History…
  • 2005
  • Creation of the Wiki
  • The wiki was created on September 24, 2005 by PostBagBoy on Wikia. He never edited here, apart from one edit on his user page stating how amazed he felt that the wiki he had created had turned out to be successful (in 2007).
  • 2010
  • ShoutWiki
  • Wikia Staff announced that a new skin was on its way. Admins of Wikisimpsons signed up for beta testing with high expectations. The skin turned out to be a huge disappointment and not fully compatible with Wikisimpsons’ article layouts. Admins of Wikisimpsons argued with the staff and Smiley12 and Solar Dragon were blocked as a result. Wikisimpsons eventually moved to ShoutWiki and the “old Wikisimpsons” became “Simpsons Wiki”.
  • Simpsons Fanon
  • Simpsons Fanon was created.
  • The Springfield Shopper
  • The Springfield Shopper became the third member of the Simpsons Wiki Network.
