Encyc is ten years old!

Post by Auggie » Mon Jan 15, 2018 3:24 am

Can you believe it? :D :mrgreen:

The encyclopedia I started in January 2008 as an alternative to Wikipedia is still going strong, delivering unique, vibrant content to a worldwide audience. I'm very happy with how things have turned out, and would like to thank everyone who has helped us along the way.

Look for more to come as we celebrate ten years of success all this month.

Thanks, Sashi. It really feels good to have carried it through this long. I feel like we've been right there with a significant chunk of internet history.

Congrats! And now we have to wait till the Google dominance is beaten. I it possible to ad Guido his wiki? It's my home wiki.

I think small, more specialized wiki's are the future and may the best win! Or be good colleagues.

Believe me I'm happy to leave the Dutch market to Wikisage. Encyc has no plans to go multilingual.

Wise. If i translate a few articles about forgotten Dutch professors in the users space of Encyc, do you want to correct my English and put them in the main space? Or are these articles not wanted there?

If they're biographies of living persons I don't really want them. People get mad. But thanks for the offer!

Don't worry. Harting died in 1970, and Vos in 2009. And Verhoeff in 2015. I should like to have English articles about them, you know.
