One of the most vital requirements is that a wiki's true goal is to act as a repository for knowledge. While a wiki may contain various features unrelated to the storage and organizing of that knowledge, its ultimate purpose is still to act as an online encyclopedia or datacenter of some form. A wiki must also appear appealing to the individuals that absorb and add new information, and the layout of the wiki must not drive away anyone due to difficulty of navigation and/or an unattractive outlook. This is not to say that an unattractive outlook is worse than a featureless one, but it is very unappealing to all users. Furthermore, a wiki must be properly moderated so that any vandalism of sites can be dealt with swiftly, and any problems on the wiki are quickly reported.

To shorten it down, Wikia are seeing wikis as "Blog Sites", and forcing blog site-like features upon them. If this is supposed to be "modern" and "up-to-date", I'd like to tell those who are trying to turn this into a social network, I WOULD JUST USE FACEBOOK OR BLOGSPOT OR ONE OF THE MILLION OTHER SERVICES WHICH DO THE EXACT SAME THING. - ENTER CITADEL T)alk C)untributions B)an 22:15, June 30, 2012 (UTC)
