WikiFur is an encyclopedia written by, for, and about the furry fandom.
Founded at the end of July, growth was slow before a promotion on furry LiveJournal communities spread to Something Awful, becoming the Awful Link of the Day for August 15. Swift action turned this potential crisis around, as many visitors were willing to help resist vandalism and improve the wiki. Some later became administrators.
Over 2400 articles have been written by WikiFur contributors - around 700 are about members of the fandom, while the remainder cover furry community and culture, including conventions, publications, multiplayer worlds, characters, and more. Promotion continues, including a leaflet distributed at Midwest FurFest, and this page.
