Encyc is a free wiki encyclopedia. Welcome. This website is a general reference work similar to Britannica, World Book, and the other great wiki, Wikipedia. We hope you enjoy our independent take on popular encyclopedia topics.
Encyc was established in 2008. :) We would like to thank all of our users for their contributions and support. We couldn't have done it without you. (block of cheese). We have two mascots. The Encyc sloth is named Pancake. The Encyc dolphin is named Butterfly.
As of February 2020, we're running a dark color scheme as our default desktop theme. As far as we know, this is the first Mediawiki-based general encyclopedia to do so with the standard Vector theme. We put a bit of work into customizing it so that it looks good and is easy to use. Feel free to email if you like this change or prefer the old theme.
