I created Bullsh!t Wiki

Bullsh!t Wiki is probably one of the most amazing and crazy idea I have ever had in my whole life. It comes from a simple idea: creating a source of entertaining informations, in the format of an encyclopedia. I know that this seems to be similar to the Uncyclopedia, but this one is only about misinformations, I wanted to create something even bigger and even better. A place where everyone can write about the funny things they experienced and share it to the community.

I published it 2 months ago and I have already had 67 683 pageviews! Even if this may seems to be a drop in the internet ocean, some people enjoyed my posts and that’s exactly what I wanted. I feel proud because I entertained a few of the internet users. strange isn’t it?

Designing Bullsh!t Wiki

Bullsh!t Wiki – Main Page

I wanted to make both an easy to use and readable wiki. So I decided to use a model that everyone know: Wikipedia. I used the source code through the CMS mediawiki, I personnalized the skin a little bit and bang! The website appeared by itself. As the first website I ever created with no experience at all, I feel very proud about it.

How it feels to be read

I had a strange feeling when I wrote my first article. As a non-native speaker, I was not sure about my writing skills. However, when I published my first article, I was proud of the final result. Futrhermore, the critics were not too strong.
