Happy Birthday, Galaxiki!

July 01, 2008

Exactly one year ago a very special community website was officially launched.

On July 1st 2007, Galaxiki started as something really new: it's a wiki based science fiction galaxy consisting of millions of stars, planets and moons that can be edited by its community.

Each star, each planet and each moon is represented by an editable wiki page, and the solar systems are all part of an online galaxy that can be explored using a galactical map.

Galaxiki instantly got a lot of positive reviews. It was "website of the day" on Yahoo, About.com, Pocketlint and RedOrbit. It was also community website of the week in Linux Journal.

Today the Galaxiki community consists of more than 2700 users, there are thousands of stars, planets and moons that have been edited, creating an entire new online world. Community members are writing sci-fi stories and publish them as part of stellar histories or they get posted in the community blog.

In April 2008 Galaxiki also published an exclusive interview with british actor David Prowse, who is best known for his role as Darth Vader in the original Star Wars trilogy.

A lot of improvements and new features are planned to become available within the next few months, and the Galaxiki community is looking forward to continue expanding this amazing fictional universe.
