Share Article

Fans of NBC sitcom ‘Scrubs’ and FOX hit ‘24’ flock to wiki-based community sites to share their reactions to new plot twists, character developments and more.

Wikia, Inc., the leading site for developing and hosting community-based wikis, today announced continued momentum around its television-focused fan sites. For example, the Scrubs wiki, online at http://scrubs.wikia.com/, now includes nearly 100 separate articles on a variety of topics surrounding the NBC sitcom -- from recaps of nearly every episode in the first five seasons to character profiles on everyone from Dr. John Michael “J.D.” Dorian to his college buddy and surgical resident "Turk."

At the same time, the 24 wiki, online at http://24.wikia.com/, now includes nearly 1,300 separate pages and has been translated into four different languages by ‘Jack Bauer’ fans around the world. The wiki about the popular Fox television show also includes the ‘Situation Room’ (see: http://24.wikia.com/wiki/Wiki_24:The_Situation_Room) where users are invited to talk about Wiki 24, ask questions, suggest ways to improve the site, or provide general comments.

About Wikia, Inc.

Since the site's launch in November 2004, over 1,500 Wikia have been created and edited by over 30,000 registered users. Wikia are already available in over 45 languages. Wikia already hosts several popular television-related wikis, including: Lost at http://lost.wikia.com and Desperate Housewives at http://desperate.wikia.com/, and Nip/Tuck at http://niptuck.wikia.com and Smallville at http://smallville.wikia.com/.

Wikia enables groups to share information, news, stories, media and opinions that fall outside the scope of an encyclopedia. Jimmy Wales and Angela Beesley launched Wikia in 2004 to provide community-based wikis inspired by the model of Wikipedia -- the free, open source encyclopedia founded by Jimmy Wales.
