GargWiki:About

From GargWiki

GargWiki is a collaborative fan effort to create the ultimate reference guide to the Disney animated series Gargoyles, created by Greg Weisman.

Contents

Universe and Out-of-universe articles

All GargWiki articles are split between two root categories: Category:Universe is for characters, places and things from the Gargoyles universe; Category:Out-of-universe is for articles about real world information, including episodes of the series, comic book issues and crew members.

Canonicity

The primary focus of GargWiki is the canonical Gargoyles Universe, revealed in the first two seasons of the Gargoyles television series and the comic book series published by Slave Labor Graphics (both the core Gargoyles series and Gargoyles: Bad Guys). Canon information is contained in Category:Canon.

Over the past decade, through interviews and comments at the site Ask Greg, Greg Weisman has revealed many secrets and plans he had for the Gargoyles Universe, including spin-offs and new characters. Since this information is subject to change before it becomes canon, it is called Canon-in-training. Entries on these revelations are located in Category:Canon-in-training.

Some canon entries contain text written in bold, blue type. This signifies, for easy distinction, Canon-in-training material in a primarily Canon entry.

Finally, Category:Apocrypha is dedicated to published Gargoyles material that is not considered canon by Greg Weisman, such as The Goliath Chronicles, the Marvel Comics series, the Disney Adventures comic and the Sega Genesis videogame.

Spoilers

GargWiki is not edited for spoilers, so users are cautioned to be especially wary if they have not read recent issues of the SLG comic book.

History

The GargWiki was created by JEB on 26 July 2006, after a guest at the 2006 Gathering of the Gargoyles suggested making a Gargoyles wiki.[1] It was originally situated at gargoyles.dracandros.com. The site's original material was derived from The Guide to the Gargoyles Universe by Todd Jensen, with supplemental material from The Gargoyles Encyclopedia by JEB and others.

On 5 April 2011, GargWiki (and the rest of dracandros.com) was taken offline by the site providers. The site providers felt that dracandros.com was using too much CPU and wanted the owners to upgrade, but the costs of the requested package were too steep and the owners were unable to afford it.[2] Instead, webmaster JEB and Greg Bishansky contacted Eric "Gorebash" Tribou, owner and operator of s8.org (home of Ask Greg). Gorebash and Scott Sakai, the administrator of the servers that host s8.org, arranged to rehouse GargWiki on their servers. GargWiki was brought online again on 4 May 2011, now at its current address of gargwiki.net.
