San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) February 5, 2009
Wikia, Inc., today announced Lostpedia as the newest addition to the Wikia Entertainment Network, the largest collection of entertainment wikis on the web. A wildly popular fan-site for ABC's cult hit LOST, Lostpedia has rapidly grown into a must-have resource for the show's fans since its inception in 2005. Today, Lostpedia boasts more than 5,000 articles that provide an unparalleled depth of information about the past four seasons of LOST - and more content is added daily with the fifth season underway.
Lostpedia features the largest and most comprehensive database of LOST's greatest mysteries, including information on everything from the polar bears to that four-toed statue, to Jacob and the cabin. Each mystery is chronicled in great detail and classified as "solved," "unsolved," or "partially solved," making it the perfect, easy-to-use resource for any true LOST fan that is looking for answers to some of the Island's most perplexing questions.
In addition to chronicling every episode, character plot and sub-plot of the show in great detail, the Lostpedia community regularly conducts and publishes exclusive interviews with the cast and crew of LOST including Michael Emerson (Benjamin Linus), Jorge Garcia (Hurley) and Rebecca Mader (Charlotte), among others.
"Lostpedia began as a labor of love and quickly found a huge community of other die-hard fans that labor on it day in and day out to make it the pre-eminent source online for discovering and sharing the secrets of Lost," said Kevin Croy, founder of Lostpedia. "With new episodes now airing, I'm sometimes not sure what I'm more excited for - watching the show or reading the Lostpedia community's reaction."
Lostpedia joined the Wikia Entertainment Network in January to improve the community's overall user experience and benefit from the Wikia's growing community of TV enthusiasts.
"Wikia provides the ideal platform for Lostpedia's ever-growing community of fans," said Jimmy Wales, co-founder and Chairman of the Board, Wikia. "I'm excited to watch Lostpedia continue to thrive under its new roof. We welcome LOST fans of all stripes to come and see how much Lostpedia adds to the enjoyment of the show."
Wikia also today announced the introduction of a community blogging platform on the Lostpedia wiki. Fans now have the opportunity to publish their personal opinions, episode reviews or theories directly on Lostpedia for millions of fans to see and comment on.
