- Ad free wikis - Wikia Community Central[dead link] - "Wikia recently started offering ad-free wikis for $19.95 a month. Any wiki with less than 20,000 pageviews per month is eligible for this program." On November 24, 2010, the program was still ongoing (see Talk:Ad free wikis § Still ongoing?). On May 13, 2015, the outdated page was deleted by DaNASCAT.
