Search Wikia

On December 23, 2006, Wales made a passing comment regarding the possibility of a wiki-based internet search.[13] The result was extensive media coverage in multiple languages, in outlets like The Guardian, the Sydney Morning Herald, and online editions of Forbes and Business Week publishing the statement as an announcement, forcing the company to re-brand and relaunch its previous search engine proposal under the temporary name of "Search Wikia."[14] is the 357th day of the year (358th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

In a later interview, Wales attempted to clarify several issues.

When asked whether the project was "formally announced," he said it was partly planned and partly a response to news coverage.[15] Amazon. ...

On 31 January 2007, at a talk given at New York University, Wales announced that Wikia plans to build a search engine rivaling those of Google and Yahoo based on the kind of collaborative cooperation which has been so successful in developing Wikipedia, arguing that "search should be open, transparent, participatory, and democratic."[16] He later suggested this new approach could account for five percent of the search market.[17] is the 31st day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

On March 10, 2007, Gil Penchina, chief executive officer of Wikia, stated in an interview that the goal for the project is to get five percent of the search market and that a release date for services was not scheduled. "We're really trying to build a movement to make search free and open and transparent," Penchina said. "We have some servers up and people are hacking away." The open source approach of utilizing programmers and users around the world is different from that used by major search providers such as Google and Yahoo, who keep most of their code secret, and could provide a search engine that lets users edit and fine tune its results.[18] March 10 is the 69th day of the year (70th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Wikia has some technical staff in the USA, but has also opened an office in Poznań, Poland in 2006.

You can find cheaper programmers in other parts of the world, but the quality's not there."[9] PoznaÅ„ ( ; full official name: The Capital City of PoznaÅ„, Polish: StoÅ‚eczne Miasto PoznaÅ„ (Latin: , German: , Yiddish: פּױזן Poyzn) is a city in west-central Poland with over 578,900 inhabitants (2002). ...


Controversy

Wikia has attracted criticism[22] for its controversial acquisition of the Guild Wars gaming fansite GuildWiki. Despite being hosted under a non-commercial license and operated as a not-for-profit venture, one of the founders unilaterally sold the site to Wikia, which now operates it as a for-profit site using advertizing, in breach of its Creative Commons license and against the wishes of its community. This article is for the Guild Wars series. ...
