The Incel Wiki aimed to be a repository of information regarding the manosphere at large, particularly incels. Incel, is an academic sociological term[ext] that is short for and means, 'involuntary celibacy', a life circumstance.
Involuntary celibates are defined on Incel Wiki as being those who are unable to have legal, consensual sexual intercourse with anyone they are attracted to.
The site split into two wikis over fights about whether the wiki should be pill-biased or not. The original authors moved to incelwiki.org.
The drama is largely settled, but there will exist two wikis: incelwiki.org being more humorous and lighthearted, and incels.wiki being more evopsych[wp] oriented.
The wiki was created during daily heated arguments the Incel Wiki admins had with Wikipedia admins about the Wikipedia Incel Article in early 2018.
The wiki was Master and William's idea, and was written almost entirely by William, who also admins/owns the wiki, and Thebreeze, the resident poet and awesome writer.
Incelwiki.com/org emerged from the Great Wiki War of April 2020 as a continuation of incels.info, a now defunct predecessor site to incels.wiki.
The IncelWiki was taken offline on 7 January 2023. The operator announced:
Quote: «I took incel wiki offline because keeping it up was causing me too much trouble and stress.
Too much of the stuff on it isn't helpful to people and I don't want to compete with the other incel people as they want a "race to the bottom"[wp].» - William on 7 January 2023
WikiMANNia comment: «The WikiMANNia editorial team observed that the operator of the IncelWiki made an effort to present the incel topic appropriately and at the same time to counteract a fatalistic-negative view of the world. He consistently rejected all pill jargon and distanced himself from all pill theories. And now he has capitulated.
We interpret the term "race to the bottom" he used to mean that there is apparently a downward race among incels in the form of a self-defeating ideology, also called "black pill", which is not suitable for developing a positive perspective on life for those suffering from inceldom. The operator obviously does not want to compete with these auto-destructive people.
On the other hand, he came to the self-recognition that much of what was in his wiki was not helpful for people either. He obviously lacks the strength and the means to change this.
The WikiMANNia editorial team very much regrets that this attempt to set a positive counterpoint here has failed. In any case, the attempt was honourable. Incels seeking advice and help have thus lost another refuge and even more space is lost to auto-destructive men and man-hating feminists.
The WikiMANNia editorial team is concerned about this development.»
