Assuming you possess basic literacy and situational awareness, you probably already know that you're currently looking at the DariaWiki (here's the Main Page if you're looking for that).
The purpose of this page is to have a place where some of the history and evolution of this Wiki can be presented for your perusal.
The DariaWiki has been through some rough times. A few years ago, contact was lost with the bureaucrat and most admins. The remaining admin had his access cut off for reasons unknown. The DariaWiki also lost a significant amount of content, including pages devoted to notable fan works and figures from the '10s.
Happily, the DariaWiki has moved to a new server, Miraheze. As of November 2020, work began on restoring as much of the DariaWiki as possible. WellTemperedClavier was able to become an admin, and was eventually assigned bureaucrat. Princess-Pasta uncovered a treasure trove of archived versions of Wiki pages via the Wayback Machine, making it possible to bring back some (though, alas, not all) of the lost info.
Work is ongoing to help fill in the missing gaps from the fandom's lost decade.
