I've just returned from having a celebratory drinks with angstslashhope to celebrate the Supernatural Wiki's 5th birthday*.

In August 2006, between Season One and Two, angstslashhope created the Super Wiki and posted its first entries. Five years later we have 1,887 articles covering episodes, characters, the lore and facts behind the show, pop culture references, information on the cast and crew, fandom and our creations from fanfic to fan songs, conventions and rubber ducks!

Hundreds of fans have been part of creating this incredible resource that now attracts over 10,000 visits a day, and over 3.3 million visits in the last year.

The Super Wiki has been a huge part of my fannish life. For me it encapsulates the things I value about fandom: community, collaboration, creativity... and crack.

In the coming years the Super Wiki will continue to document and celebrate the wonderful show that is Supernatural, her cast and crew, and especially our fandom's passionate, creative and sometimes slightly crazy endeavors. We hope you'll come along for the ride.

Happy Birthday to the Supernatural Wiki!

* i figure five years in fandom equals at least 21 human years ;D

Happy Birthday! When I was writing this year's Big Bang, I had the Wiki open the whole time. I have no idea what I would have done without it. In fact, I would not have been able to write the story I did without it. Thank you so much for an invaluable resource.
