History

Founding

Pikmin Fanon was created on November 1st, 2008 by Rocky0718. At its creation, our wiki was hosted by Wikia and was known as Pikcanon-NOT. It was originally designed to to a collection of fanon creations for the now inactive Pikmin Wars online message board game.[1] Soon Pikmin Fanon began to draw popularity and several fan games were created, most notably the games consisting of the Buildup Trilogy. This made the wiki stray from its original intended purpose, and led to it becoming the wiki we know today.

Independence and Pikmin Fanon

On September 14th, 2010, Pikmin Fanon, along with Pikipedia at the time, moved away from Wikia to become independent. The wikis were then accepted into NIWA on October 8 of the same year. It is during that time that our wiki's name officially changed from the Pikcanon-NOT to Pikmin Fanon.
