The '''Screamer Wiki''' formely known as ''ScreamerChecker Wiki'', was founded on November 11th, 2013 by [https://youtube.com/user/AnimatorXP AnimatorXP], with the simple goal is to index all of the [[screamers]] ever made that doesn't even exist on the Wiki yet, Screamer Wiki started out on the Free Wiki Hosting site called "Wikia" or now known as '''FANDOM''' is where our Wiki start growing popularity since on 2015 - October 2019, the FANDOM told us to move out, so we are now operating on our own website by using a new wiki hosting service called '''MediaWiki''' and the Wiki started growing popularity again just like the older wiki we remembered. The wiki has since 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 many more.
