The first post in 2007 starts out with the announcement
of what I hope will be a successful project:
About a month ago I suggested a wiki on megaliths and megalithic sites to Wikia
which has some diffuse relations to Wikipedia and Wikimedia
and this has recently been approved as the Megalithic Wiki at Wikia
at the website URL http://megaliths.wikia.com/
with the following purpose:
"The Megalithic Wiki is intended as a wiki for detailed information about megaliths and megalithic sites around the world, including but not limited to dolmens, menhirs, cairns, standing stones, stone circles, henges, earthworks, petroglyphs, etc. and including detailed descriptions, all possible interpretations (e.g. archaeoastronomy), GPS locations, original user photographs of megalithic sites (from all angles and positions), bibliographies of research materials, literature, books and book reviews, authors, websites, online journals (blogs), old and new media such as film and videos, etc. Terminology relating to megalithic sites is also to be included in the Megalithic Wiki entries."
I have created a simple starting megalithic site template page at
Just copy the source code and adapt to your own uses.
The Megalithic Wiki is listed at
I am listed there as the founder of the Megalithic Wiki at Wikia:
"English: Started December 26, 2006 by Akaulins."
See my user page at: "http://megaliths.wikia.com/wiki/User:Akaulins "
Please note that Megalithic Wiki is a Wikia Wiki and that numerous members of the Wikia staff have full access to all Wikia
wikis, including the Megalithic Wiki. See in this regard http://megaliths.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Listusers/staff
Please note that the Megalithic Wiki is an open community where pages are or will be protected only in exceptional cases for legal and/or administrative reasons by the system operators, of which I am the first as the founder, but, of course, I hope in the course of time that we will have dozens of people involved in the day-to-day administration of Megalithic Wiki. I personally do not want to do much of any administration of any kind and would prefer to spend my time on my own megalithic work. Accordingly, we urge people with expertise in this field to become additional administrators of this Wiki.
Wikia is not a Wikimedia project. Rather, Wikia, Inc. is an independent company, although there are some relationships between the two. Wikia was founded by Jimmy Wales, who is the founder of the well-known Wikipedia, and by Angela Beesley, a former member of the Wikimedia's Board of Trustees.
For a full discussion of the relationships see http://www.wikia.com/wiki/Wikimedia
For a history of Wikia see http://online.wsj.com/public/article_print/SB111196673261990485-5REIoCsSFxd8Lo3uxapqIxxthR0_20050426.html?
The Megalithic Wiki is a real wiki and open to everyone although it is best for each individual not to edit anonymously but rather to create a free account giving you a Megalithic Wiki name which will then credit all of your edits to your name.
See the Tutorial at http://www.wikia.com/wiki/Help:Tutorial_1
and see also the Editing page at http://megaliths.wikia.com/wiki/Help:Editing
The Megalithic Wiki at Wikia is not intended to be a substitute for individual megalithic websites, of which there are many online, but rather it is intended to be a compendium of world megalithic sites, broadly defined, and including also petroglyphs, i.e. rock drawings, cave paintings and rock art.
Feel free to pass this information on to those of your friends who might be interested in this project.
