About Wiki Spot | Create a wiki | Documentation | Building Community | Interwiki Community

wiki spot is a home for wikis that benefit their communities.

It can be a home for your community, too. Read More...

A "wiki" is an interlinked set of Web pages written by the people who use it: the beauty of a wiki is that anyone can edit and contribute. Wiki Spot is a nonprofit, member-supported effort dedicated to helping communities use wikis.

If you would like to help out with or just learn from one of our established projects, head over to the Wiki Directory to find a wiki that interests you. Some may require you to register an account before editing, but within a minute you'll be on your way to improving your community resource.

If you can't find what you're looking for, it is easy to start and administer a wiki for your own community at Wiki Spot: just log in and create a wiki today!
