The current next-gen landscape has fostered a gaming environment with unprecedented level of interactivity and depth. Game wikis such as WowWiki and FFxiclopedia have long served as respected resources for the largest MMO's and have enjoyed high use awareness within the communities. As more games start to incorporate MMO-like community elements, Gaming communities have stepped up with a proliferation of fan-run wikis that have caused publishers and developers to take a closer look at the community ecosystem forming around their products. In addition to being great content resources, the communities behind the wikis have become a strong voice and typically including some of the most passionate and influential players of a game. Engaging with the wiki communities has become another way for a developer to monitor the pulse of their community and gain real-time feedback. This panel will examine what makes game wiki communities tick, how developers are leveraging this new community channel, and what to expect in the future as more and more gamers start to take community management into their own hands.
