Thanks for signing up and checking out WikiApiary! I hope you find it interesting. Thanks also for the link to the Wikia site list. I'm curious, are you affiliated with Wikia? 🐝 thingles (talk) 04:37, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

I'm just an admins on a couple of larger wikis that happen to use semantic mediawiki. Also I agree with kgh's concerns, some sort of filter is definitely needed as probably tens of thousands of wikis are just plain junk. I suggested the WAM page because it sort of took that into account, but I couldn't find any other format of that data. If you want, I could try contacting wikia and asking them if they could add a different format. Simant (talk) 12:02, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
