A few hundred users are taking over Wikipedia and it looks like they’re having a lot of fun.
Ars Technic reported on Tuesday that a user called uic has created a wiki, a site that aims to provide free access to Wikipedia content.
The site is currently under construction, but is expected to be completed by the end of the month.
Ars says it reached out to uic, asking if it would be willing to put the site up for download.
Uic responded that it was ready to open the wiki.
The user then wrote that he’s created a new website, which is titled uicwiki.com.
A couple of days later, the site was live on the Google Search Console.
Ars wrote that it’s still not clear how much content is included on the site, but that the site does include links to several articles, including a recent article on the topic of the Zika virus.
uic also provides an “about” page that lists the site’s purpose, listing the “purpose” as “creating free and open access to content in the World Wide Web.”
Ars reports that the website includes links to some of the most popular websites on the Internet, including Wikipedia, which the website calls a “great resource for anyone who wants to learn more about technology, the environment, and humanity.”
Ars says that it has contacted uic for comment and will update this story when we hear back.
Ars also contacted Wikipedia, but did not hear back as of press time.
The Wiki is now live on Google search, and users can download the website here.
