Greetings, Wikians! This is the first blog post in a new series where we’ll be highlighting interesting accomplishments and milestones specific to individual communities.
5 and 10 year birthdays
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia Wiki celebrates 5 years this month! Congratulations (and looking forward to the start of season ten)!
In late 2004, way back before Wikia was the network of fan communities it is today, many of our oldest communities had their official debut on our servers! Some of the specific founding dates are lost to the dark reaches of time (and server logs), but we can celebrate 10 year birthdays for:
|FFXIclopedia||Alternate History Wiki|
|Religion Wiki||Music Wiki|
|Familypedia||The Sims Wiki|
|Doom Wiki||Stargate Wiki|
Here's looking forward to another amazing decade!
