From CreationWiki, the encyclopedia of creation science
We estimate that EvoWiki was started sometime around the summer of 2003. An exact date could not be found on their website. As of April 2011 the EvoWiki has 3,074 pages that are probably articles with legitimate content. There have been a total of 7,016,890 page views, and 46,742 page edits since the wiki was setup. They have 8 administrators, but the number of legitimate users can not be accurately identified. Much like the CreationWiki, the EvoWiki has been assaulted heavily with spambot activity.
EvoWiki's stated editorial policy is as follows:
|“|| The purpose of the EvoWiki is to provide a location for the collaborative writing of resources relating to Evolution, evolutionary science and creationism. These resources include an encyclopedia, popular-science articles, technical articles and indeed any other conceivable relevant use.
Any visitor to the site may use the edit function, but a small team of editors review recent changes to the site for relevance and factual accuracy. This site is not "viewpoint neutral", and we do not keep pro-creationism edits, or discuss the details of such edits and why we remove them. This may seem closed-minded or dogmatic to those unfamiliar with the details of the controversy, but such creationist edits are invariably issues refuted elsewhere on the site and scientifically incorrect. We do not allow prolonged debates, except for discussion between editors about how to write a page, because there are many websites better suited to this purpose (see forums and newsgroups). One of the reasons we felt the need to create this site was because creationists have a library of claims and questions which have long been refuted, but which continue to be asked. We feel there's little point in encouraging creationists to carry on asking these questions when the pages are here to answer them.
While most of the editors on EvoWiki are committed to accuracy and honesty, with any resource about a controversial subject you should always double-check any information before using it yourself. This is a wiki, and therefore should always be considered under construction.
