The Screamer Wiki, formerly known as the ScreamerChecker Wiki, was founded on November 11th, 2013 by AnimatorXP, with the simple goal to index all 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 1,607 articles, 94,721 total edits, and over 50,000 weekly visits.
The Screamer Wiki had the original purpose to let users check if a website was a screamer or not by searching the name of the website 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 pages about shock sites, games, videos, and many more.
