  1. gwern’s article also talks about “transwiki exclusionism”, i.e. the idea that specialized topics should be covered in separate wikis rather than standardizing everything on Wikipedia. Examples given (in a quote) are Memory Alpha and Wookieepedia, but there are also others like qwiki and Groupprops (part of subwiki).

    There are good arguments for covering topics in external wikis, e.g. how Wikipedia’s structuring of articles does not allow for a complex tree of pages (FIXME: quote and rephrase – the original idea should be in a subwiki blog post). On the other hand, Wikipedia is the place many look to to find information on a topic, so creating content there makes it immediately useful to many.
