What is WikiTide?

WikiTide is one of the most flexible wiki farms powered by expert MediaWiki hosting solutions. We are a group of volunteers with years of practical experience across several wiki farms prior to launching this project.

Our service has no advertisements, our volunteers give their time for free, and we are completely funded through donations made by people like you. We hope you'll join us in building the WikiTide service. For more info on us, see FAQ#General.

Getting started...

Jump right in! These links help you make an account or request a wiki.

Help for your wiki

WikiTide runs on MediaWiki, the same software that Wikipedia uses, alongside an extensive collection of trusted extensions and skins.

ManageWiki (unique to WikiTide) provides one-click enabling of extensions/skins along with the flexibility to change your wiki's configuration to your heart's content.

Want an extension enabled that's not on our list? See Request features for more information.

Have a different problem or questions about managing your wiki?

Ask at the Community noticeboard or connect with our community on our Discord server.

Technical Problems

Phorge is WikiTide's issue tracking system. If you ever have a technical issue or request, simply make a task here to alert our technical volunteers.

To use Phorge, you'll first need to create and log into your WikiTide account.

Phorge tasks will be reviewed and responded to according to our volunteer team's availability. Please be patient and be aware that we know about every new task made. If days pass without any activity on the ticket, please reach out on the Discord server for a status update.

Contributing

WikiTide is kept alive through contributions from people like you. Whether it's monetary donations or volunteering your time, all types of contributions are appreciated.

No one here gets paid, we're all just volunteers who enjoy helping people. From Stewards to Global Admins, we're all volunteers!

Any amount of help is appreciated. Getting started isn't hard. Know the answer to a question? Don't be afraid to say it!

Can't volunteer but love WikiTide? Donating is another way of contributing which is also very appreciated!
