I've become a wikiholic in recent months. I'm "Woggly" on wikipedia. One
thing I never understood is why the DWJwiki is seperate from the main
wikipedia?

I happened past the wiki today, and found that some enterprising
person had added an advertisement for an online casino to one of the
main pages. The joke's on them, of course; imagine, somebody actually
believing that anybody ever reads the wiki...
