Introducing LeakyPedia!


Oct 24, 2010

Posted by Melissa Anelli

We are excited to bring you a new and fun feature here on Leaky: LeakyPedia, our Harry Potter wiki!

On LeakyPedia you can collect and record facts on the canon, the films, the park, JKR, the fandom, and more. We aim for it to eventually become a true record of this community (though this will happen in the fullness of time, as content is submitted and edited).

This will be the first time our community can edit the content of our website itself, and as the wiki becomes full and accurate it will start being more integrated with the site. As a wiki is something anyone with an account (and this will be separate from your MyLeaky logins) can edit, there will be, in the beginning, some incorrect info: but that’s the exciting part. It will be up to the community (and our moderators) to keep things moving and accurate.

We’re so excited to get you directly involved in the content of Leaky – so what else is there to say? Go to it! Click here to get started on LeakyPedia!

Big thanks to Sarah, Josh, John and everyone who worked so hard to get this online!

(This is one of the things we said we were bringing you in July. Blame the nargles!)

Cant wait to check it out.Avatar ImagePHONELADY says: THIS SHOULD BE GOOD , I CANT THINK WE MISSED LOL!Avatar Image62obsessedwHP says: This seems like a kind of crazy idea. There's already HP Wiki and the Lexicon for information. In my opinion wikis are kind of a crazy idea and I don't know why Leaky would stoop to that level...anyway I guess it might be enjoyable.Avatar ImageAstoria Lane says: I'm very excited I just did a lot of adding and editting for the Potter Family and Weasley family in the Wizard Canon section I hope everyone likes it. It makes it easier to read for those who can not read a huge paragraph and find names inside. Now it clearly shows who is married to who and their children in an orderly way. I know it will be revised over and over again but I know it will just make it better and better!! I loved contributing my wisdom of the world of Harry Potter.!! Thanks Astoria LaneAvatar Imagedevilskinn says: wooow! I'm on it :-DAvatar Imagemoglet says: I'm just wondering if the work done while adding this wiki to Leaky is what caused all the days when the site was unavailable.Avatar Imageltm0807 says: Great, I am looking forward to this wiki Good luckAvatar Imageltm0807 says: greattttttttttttt I am looking forward to LeakyPedia !!! ------------------------------ Avatar Imagetallant_ryan1991 says: Awesome another way for me to learn more about HP!Avatar ImageAlexander Lionheart says: Awesome!Avatar ImageEmmy-Faye says: yay! :)Avatar Imageolliered says: pretty cool :)Avatar Imagecmoverhp says: I shall now.......SIGN UP!!!!Avatar Imageharrypotterluver11123 says: its awsome i love i should of thought of it myself Avatar Imageharrypotterluver11123 says: I’m just wondering if the work done while adding this wiki to Leaky is what caused all the days when the site was unavailable.
