History of Acyclopedia

Acyclopedia was first founded as Ace Wiki, which is now an abandoned project who's goal was to produce content of the Ace Kingdom by the Ace Kingdom. Ace Wiki had a high measure of censoring, reviewing and moderation to the extent that it was limited to certain topics. This idea was too limited, therefore a new idea formed to make it a free encyclopedia.

The transition began right away - such as the name change, first as "Ace Encyclopedia" to still have some inclusion over the older name, though later on it evolved to Acyclopedia with a inclusion of "A" & "Encyclopedia" to show the type of site.

In October 2016, more languages were produced such as Latin, French, and etc. on ways that were available.

Using Acyclopedia

Navigating Acyclopedia

As an encyclopedia, the goal is to learn about the topic that you search so when finding a term that you don't know, it will be linked to another page so this way, all articles in Acyclopedia are linked to one another. When highlighted blue, the certain text links to another page that contains further information; this goes the opposite for the opposite color, for red links the page does not exist. You may wonder why the link is not highlighted when the page exists; this is avoided because of the overlinking idea. Links may lead to other information and mainly other places to learn more about the topic you are looking for.

Acyclopedia compared to others

Acyclopedia is the only wiki that bases their articles mainly about Ace Kingdom "services" and the organization itself. The main issues, and strengths of this wiki are arisen due to the publicity of editing, and articles are usually written by all authors of the articles.

Acyclopedia may have articles that are written with those that have low knowledge in certain fields: We do not give those that are more knowledgeable more credit. Those that may be an amateur can find referenced information about their idea, and can post their information to the wiki and have it verified. Since that the usual public like a certain article, it may have people with no knowledge to write and contribute to the article(s) just for reasons that they may enjoy, or like that topic.

In Acyclopedia, anyone can edit any article: Since anyone can edit, there is a chance for users that want to vandalize any set of content in any way. If you want to learn more information about how we prevent this, view this page. It is that vandalism is always able to spotted, and corrected, we still prefer neutral view points than rather information that is found to be referenced. Ace Wiki is well protected against vandalism in every way, and it is seen in the linked article 'this page' that users cannot "destroy Ace Wiki", yet only attempts are possible until action occurs.

Acyclopedia is mainly written of consensus: Permanent points or "official" points about an article are most of the time difficult to achieve for the consensus of contributors that are extreme about the topic, and "normal view points."

Acyclopedia's History

Acyclopedia has been founded as the Ace Wiki, and began as in other services as a reference desk for questions only which is now an abandoned project by the Ace Kingdom and now to create a wiki for everything excluding questions (for other services), or (including questions they asked from other services). The idea had started out as a reference desk for questions, and is present today as the Acyclopedia.

Domain History

The domain of the wiki has changed several times as the servers changed (see below), and at first when the idea for a wiki had been created it used a series of "sub-domains" until the Ace Kingdom decided for a custom domain. Examples: .PBworks, .Wikia, .Wikispaces, .Wikidot, and now .Referata.com. You may direct to the current wiki with "Acyclopedia.cf", though currently the hosting servers do not allow for custom domains and maybe in the future it will replace the old "wiki.ace.gov.rudolfschool.com."

Hosts

The hosts for the wiki had also included the series of sub-domains until the use of 'wiki.ace.gov.rudolfschool.com' first used in .Wikidot direct from Acekingdom.wikidot.com as the first custom domain. First, when using MediaWiki we decided to manage the files, and set it up for ourselves though this became complicated and wasted too much time for the project so we decided to use referata, mediawiki, and semantic mediawiki. Powered by semantic mediawiki, and mediawiki; hosted by referata. In looking for the best host, we tried multiple though currently there are others being tested and the current one is hosted in referata.

Acyclopedia's Contributors

Anyone with internet access can use the Acyclopedia. Rules were created to make sure that help contributors craft quality work, and maintain the civility of the site. Ace Kingdom runs the project, has influence over the contributors, and is highly involved in the project.
