Around a year ago, a group of Path of Exile community members started a new player-run Wiki. We now host this on our servers, so that they don't have to incur the hosting costs. We wanted to take a moment to let you know what this means and what to expect in the future.

Because it was created to provide reliable, up-to-date information rather than to make a profit, its hosting costs have been a burden on its creators. We're very happy with its quality, and when we were approached about the idea of hosting it on GGG servers, we liked the idea. This means that the community wiki can have all the hosting resources it needs without having to worry about raising money.

There are two ways that you can help with the success of this wiki. Firstly, help keep it up to date by adding information that you uncover during your gameplay. Secondly, make sure to link this new wiki when sharing information with others.

At the moment, the old wiki ranks higher in google's search results. It's a concern because the old wiki has out-of-date information and some players may navigate to it not knowing that there is a more up-to-date wiki out there. The more that people use this new one, the less of a problem this will be. To help with this, we'll also be linking the new one on our site for easier navigation.

Currently, the wiki is still entirely maintained by the community. We haven't yet committed any resources towards making the information more accurate or potentially exporting data directly from the game. But this is an area that we are interested in investigating in the future. For now, we're just covering the hosting so that the wiki can continue to exist without monetary issues.

We want to offer a huge thank you to the people who have been diligently setting this up.

That's sweet of you. <3

edit: Thank you to everyone who has been helping out with this new wiki. It's leagues better than the old one for numerous reasons (up to date information, no ad spam, and so on).

Very cool!
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.
Lovely. <3
Absolutely wonderful. No game has ever needed a wiki as badly as Path of Exile does.

Does this mean when trade goes down for the first week in a new league the wiki also goes down though?

to answer: according to Bex, it'll be hosted separately and will remain up.
