Conservapedia is an US-American wiki-encyclopedia[wp], claiming to be conservative and family-friendly. It was launched on November 21, 2006. It was founded by teacher and attorney Andrew Schlafly[cp] with the help of several students from his fall 2006 World History class.
Though Conservapedia originally contained mostly history articles, it has grown over several years to be a general reference, with information about history, math, science, politics, religion and other topics. It also contains debates, essays and educational resources. In March 2007 it was picked up by the media, and faced a barrage of vandalism.
Since then it has grown to now over 35,000 articles with about 950 active editors and has approximately ten million page views (July 2011).
Unlike Wikipedia, which bills itself as a democratic system and ends up functioning as a mobocracy, Conservapedia employs a hierarchical structure based on a merit system. Andrew Schlafly is the chief administrator and is the most prolific editor. Andrew Schlafly is the fifth child of Phyllis Schlafly.
