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 are 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. It can easily be reverted to dark text on light background under user preferences. We put a bit of work into customizing this theme so that it looks good and is easy to use. Feel free to email if you like this change or have any suggestions for improvement.
