==History==
K6ka's Wiki first started as a [[wikia:w:c:k6ka|wiki on Wikia]] with the same idea of providing [[k6ka]] with a place to freely post his content and to develop a sort of "template" for other wikis to follow. However, Wikia enacted several changes to the website over the course of a few years, such as the removal of the ability for local administrators to edit the MediaWiki namespace,<ref>http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:890734</ref><ref>http://community.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Rappy_4187/Technical_Update:_August_10,_2015</ref><ref>http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Help:MediaWiki_namespace#Step_by_step</ref>, the creation of a bulky and intrusive navigation bar,<ref>http://community.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Rupert_Giles/Introducing_Updated_Global_Navigation</ref>, the creation of a poorly received website skin,<ref>http://community.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Rupert_Giles/Prototype_for_a_new_article_layout</ref> a poorly received typography change,<ref>http://community.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Rupert_Giles/Layout_Changes:_Breakpoints_and_Typography</ref> a rebranding to "Fandom" despite widespread opposition from the community,<ref>http://community.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Craiglpalmer/Wikia_is_now_Fandom_powered_by_Wikia</ref> and the desysopping of a local administrator after a community objected to a change that was being forced onto them by Wikia Staff,<ref>http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:1237595</ref><ref>http://community.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Ciencia_Al_Poder/Portable_Infoboxes,_the_first_step_into_Wikia_taking_control_over_our_content</ref> k6ka decided it was time for a new home. Thus, he founded a new wiki on ShoutWiki on May 11, 2017. On January 26, 2019, K6ka's Wiki again moved to Miraheze, seeking better software and better technical support.
