The '''Screamer Wiki''', formerly known as ''ScreamerChecker Wiki'', was founded on November 11th, 2013 by [https://youtube.com/user/AnimatorXP AnimatorXP], with the simple goal to index all [[Screamer|screamers]] ever made. Screamer Wiki started out on Wikia, now known as Fandom, and we are now operating on our own website. The wiki has since then grown to {{NUMBEROFARTICLES}} articles, {{NUMBEROFEDITS}} total edits, and over 50,000 weekly visits.


[[File:scrlogo.png|thumb|250px|The current Screamer Wiki logo]] The '''Screamer Wiki''', formerly known as ''ScreamerChecker Wiki'', was founded on November 11th, 2013 by [https://youtube.com/user/AnimatorXP AnimatorXP], with the simple goal to index all [[screamers]] ever made. Screamer Wiki started out on Wikia, now known as {{Rotten|FANDOM|note=no}}, and we are now operating on our own website by using a new wiki hosting service called MediaWiki. The wiki has since then grown to '''{{NUMBEROFARTICLES}}''' articles, '''{{NUMBEROFEDITS}}''' total edits, and over '''50,000''' weekly visits.
The '''Screamer Wiki''' had the original purpose to let anyone check if a website was a screamer by searching its name on the wiki, hence the former name ''ScreamerChecker''. Since then, the wiki slowly started to open up and expand to more types of screamers: the wiki now has articles about games, videos, shock sites, and much more.
