The cockroach motel of wiki hosting; they check in, but they don't check out. They say they'll host your wiki for free, then they plaster your wiki with intrusive advertising, censor your content and deface everything with unsightly, click-baity reskins. When you try to leave, you find that you cannot due to search engine duplicate content penalties.
I used to edit on Wikia, but left when they threw the Uncyclopedia under the bus.

The old name of FANDOM, a crappy wiki-hosting platform where almost everyone are BFDI or GoAnimate fans. Wikis are pretty messy with vandalism 24/7 from little kids. ShoutWiki is better.
BFDI fanboy: Hey i joined this cool new platform called Wikia, It's pretty cool
Normal guy: What?
BFDI fanboy: Oh, it's now called FANDOM, Just don't forget to use adblock!

Now known as FANDOM, a terribad, greedy wiki-hosting company. Ads are intrusive, censors content to please the Chinese government, and wikis are not well-maintained. If you try contacting customer support, they refuse to help in any way whatsoever, and they have a list of pre-written messages they copypaste when replying to a ticket because of their inability to type.
I was the founder of a popular fanon wiki on Wikia, but my site got shut down by them, causing three years of content to be lost forever. I loved editing there every day, but my ability to write new content is gone. This was an attack on my freedom of speech, and I had the right to create whatever I wanted, and I didn't do anything to deserve being banned. The people who shut down my site are liberals who celebrated its shutdown, happy they censored me from the platform. They purged my site because they are commies who support the Chinese Communist Party. I had one of the most active presences on the internet, and this banning left me no way to talk to my followers.
