So I was reading this article, Top 57 Wikis By Rank, and thought, "Wouldn't it be cool if HRWiki was on the list?" And then I got to the bottom and was gobsmacked to find that it is! It's second from the bottom (#56), but it's on the list! Just above Davis, California and just below some sports junkies.

HRWiki FTW!

(For a little perspective, Wikipedia--the #1 wiki, natch--has an Alexa rank of 10, whereas HRWiki is at 96,020. Also, there are definitely some wikis missing, like Memory Alpha, whose Alexa rank is 25,705, and the Battlestar Wiki, whose rank is 57,337.)

That's great, but what does the Alexa rank mean?

It's a measure of a site's web presence, hits, and reach sort of rolled into one.

Don't criticize [s]us[/s] them for being in a niche market.

Anyhoo, congratulations. Although I think I remember the HRWiki being in a list similar to this a while ago...

it's true. sree's page is filled with good. mine is almost blank. 'tis okay. it's actually a good way to figure out what the heck people are talkig about sometimes.

but the o.g. wiki is nothing if not painstakingly complete. good job.

Gah. Why is Uncyclopedia ranked higher than Encyclopedia Dramatica?

Random macros, fake Oscar Wilde quotes, and endless references to ninjas/pirates lost their funny in 2004. Fact.

I personally don't find Encyclopedia Dramatica that funny. The humour part appears to be comprised of surprise porn and calling everything in existance gay and stupid. It is a good source for memes and stuff, though.

Uncyclopedia makes a genuine effort to be funny, however.

Cool, cool, cool! :)

To be honest, I'ven ever thought of the HRWiki as having that big of an effect on the e-world around us, considering that - well ,qutie frankly, its not too important.

But, then when I started to think about it - HRWiki may have been the first specialty wiki ever! It was the first I found! Can anyone verify that?
