History

2006–2007: Creation and early years

Wikitubia was founded on September 25, 2006. The date that TownCrier, the wiki's founder, requested to officially create the wiki and received Bureaucrat rights was on February 25, 2007. Regardless, September 25, 2006 is still the oldest existing date of Wikitubia's creation. It was unknown that TownCrier was the founder until March 16, 2020, when the Wikitubia Representative, Spongebob456 identified them.

Despite being the founder of Wikitubia, TownCrier never edited once on the wiki. Due to this, TownCrier likely would not have been registered as an official user of the wiki, largely contributing as to why they went unidentified for nearly 14 years.

The first page, Galipokaandhejhogfan, was created on March 10, 2007 and is still around to this day. The first constructive edit was performed on this page as well, on March 10, 2007, by user Machchunk2.

Around this time, Wikitubia gained little to no traffic and was very inactive and quite desolate.

2008–2011: Early growth

Around Mid-2008, Wikitubia started gaining more traffic. More editors and views arrived, which resulted in the user Yowuza adopting Wikitubia. In 2009, Wikitubia reached over 1,000 pages. A few users would also become admins at that time such as The thing, Flaminglawyer, and Jonpro.

In July of 2011 The YouTube Poop Wiki was in the process of being merged with Wikitubia. However, later in the year in October, it was decided that it wouldn't be moved to Wikitubia and the merging was cancelled.

2012–2016: Middle development

By 2012, all of the bureaucrats and admins became inactive and the wiki was essentially staff-less. Around November of 2012, Wikitubia was adopted for a second time by the user Applegirl. Wikitubia had possibly around 1,000–3,000 pages at this time, though that is uncertain, as many pages were been deleted around this time.

Sometime in 2013, Wikitubia would stop allowing pages to be about videos and instead focus on Channels.

Also around this time, on July 20, 2013, Wikitubia's official Twitter was created by Purzyckij. In 2014, Purzyckij would become an administrator and still is to this day, making him the oldest staff member of Wikitubia.

In 2014, the subscriber rule went from 100 to 500 due to YouTube's new rules of having a custom URL.

On March 10, 2015, Wikitubia started it's monthly poll contest called the Hall of Fame, a poll that has multiple YouTubers on it and whichever one gets the most votes becomes a Hall of Fame member. The first Hall of Fame member was Vsauce.

In late 2015, an administrator by the name of DarkUnknownWarrior was blocked and provoked of his rights by then bureaucrats Monochromatic Bunny and NKpower for abusing his rights and intimidating behavior. His account was blocked 4 times after that, the final one being on September 25, 2016, the sites 10 year anniversary.

2017-2019: Continuous Growth

On December 12, 2017, Wikitubia's Discord server was created by then admin HanselElGato with the first non-staff member to join being the now owner BoaDaSnakeMan.

Around 2018, Wikitubia only had one active Bureaucrat which was Purzyckij, and it had been like that for over a year, so on December 1, 2018 Purzyckij promoted admins EpicNinjaDude37 and Zianka to bureaucrats.

On November 5, 2019, YouTuber JackSucksAtLife uploaded a video about Wikipedia and Wikitubia titled I edited my own Wikipedia to say whatever I want where he tried to make his page on Wikipedia and then went to Wikitubia's page about him and read through it as well as edited on it. After that video it led to many visiting the wiki and some vandalizing some of the pages. Jack made multiple videos featuring Wikitubia since.

On December 10, 2019 Wikitubia's Twitter tweeted that if they could get 3,000 followers on twitter by the end of the year that Purzyckij would purchase a Hall of Fame Plaque for Jack and send it to him. The challenge was easily completed and in February of 2020 Jack received the plaque.

2020-Present: Current day/ Pandemic Era

From the beginning of 2020 to the end of 2020, Wikitubia's page count went from 5,000 pages to over 9,700 pages, a large page increase which also came with a much higher page view count and edits.

Around February 2020, a user named ITurkishmapping was editing at a very rapid pace, sometimes thousands of edits in only a week. He amassed over 74,000 edits in total and is still the user with the most edits on Wikitubia, no other user has ever gotten close to this edit count other than him, the closet users being Flugmented and EpicNinjaDude37 who each had close to 30,000 edits.

Between Early September and Mid-October 2020 a group of users, Mainly lead by a user called Isaac melen had vandalized and destroyed many Wikitubia pages and the reason behind it is because Isaac melen wanted to be a certain type of Moderator but he was soon rejected and just vandalized pages. but were all soon fixed on Late October and by the same month the Bureaucrat EpicNinjaDude37 retired after 2-3 years of service. And between October and Early November 2020 Isaac had returned to vandalize Wikitubia using several Sock puppet accounts but were soon identified to be the same person and the accounts were all taken down on November.

At the Late November 2020, the subscriber limit was raised from 500 subscribers to 1,000 subscribers because of many short and spammed pages.

In 2021, Wikitubia continues to rapidly grow and seem quite firmly established and quite well known to this day.

On June 2021 - Present Month, the Staff team of Wikitubia have started having new people. Specifically Rollbackers like ItzWolfyTDM, Ye9, Zixella and many more.
