The roach motel of wiki hosting: they check you in, but they don't let you check out. They promise to host your wiki for free, but then they plaster it with intrusive advertising, restrictive rules and unsightly reskins. And, when you want to leave their site for good, you will realise that you could not as the mentally unstable staff in their site would harass you, threatening to leak your IP address, email address, as well as any other personal information that you had once given to the site. As icing on the cake, you would also be forced to rejoin their platform due to domain duplicate penalties, to get them more advertisement views and to feed them with ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ information which they would later use against you to prevent you from leaving.
Now known as FANDOM, Wikia is a horrendous, greedy, clickbait-filled site which you should never visit.

Now known as FANDOM, a terribad, greedy wiki-hosting platform. Ads are intrusive, and the staff of the site censors content to appease their biased radical views. Those autocrats act without thinking, and look at the entire online existences of real people with the indifference of a terrorist. They also rain global blocks on people like maniacs who don't care about the feelings of others. Racism, ageism and a lot of other biased thoughts are prevalent on this corrupt site.
I was the founder of a popular wiki about a popular recently-hit game on Wikia/FANDOM in 2019. After lots of hard work, the wiki collected many ardent fans who edit pages and add information to the growing site which already had 271 pages complete with pictures, links to other sites, GIFs and strategies on how to get better at the game,along with numerous discussion posts in early 2020. The wiki was growing almost every single day, with more viewers, editors and contributors. And just then, FANDOM's group of drunk people (FANDOM staff) came by and closed the wiki, claiming that it was a duplicate of a wiki which was made much later than my wiki and had only 11 pages and literally no active users. And of course, the editors of the wiki and I sent requests to Zendesk (their useless helpdesk), just to be met with a series of copy-pasted messages that literally just mean 'we can't do anything'. And as icing on the cake, they started global blocking me for harassing them. I was global blocked 3 times in all. And after one month of agony and torture, they disabled and anonymised my account, causing 34,173 global edits to be lost. I was totally furious but could not do anything at all, due to the magnitude of corruption in their site.

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.

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!

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.
