Wikia

Wikia, or currently known as FANDOM, is the largest entertainment site in the world, which includes news and stories, wikis and many other features.

Advantages

  • More communities to edit, collaborate, and of course, have fun in.
  • Easier to do things in general, like communicating, uploading files, and of course, editing pages without having to always cite stuff.
  • Can customize a wiki personally or site-wide.
  • Tons and tons of information from almost every franchise.
  • Weekly updates and staff blogs, to show an awesome site developing.
  • Good UI, and is being renewed in general.
  • Almost anything in general.

Disadvantages

  • Staff may sometimes not listen to our feedback (not judging). I didn't say from Special:Contact, as they always leave a reply over there, but I meant in the comments.
  • Extensive amount of ads (good thing that is being fixed now).
  • It's MediaWiki version is always stuck at 1.1.9.
  • Some info may be inaccurate.


Wikipedia

Wikipedia is a free encyclopedia (I guess) with extensive information about simple content in the world.

Advantages

  • Endless amount of info, in many languages.
  • The beta features are great.
  • No ads whatsoever.
  • Usually has the latest MediaWiki version.

Disadvantages

  • Very steep learning curve.
  • Bad and outdated UI (that's why I installed Wikiwand. :D).
  • Info is sometimes not accurate or outdated.

So yeah, leave down your opinions, guys.
