Channel Awesome Wikia
October 25th, 2008
The Channel Awesome Wikia was created on October 25th, 2008 by Laura aka Spike's Girl and a small group of TGWTG.com's bloggers. The wiki was created due to the fact there was no decent wiki at the time that was dedicated to Doug and the rest of the site. So, Laura created one. Over time, the wiki got recognition from Channel Awesome CEO, Mike Michaud and eventually staff members from the site began helping the wikia. Film Brain, Coldguy and other members of the team helped the wiki to grow as more articles were created. Doug was also impressed by the pages and provided the wiki with helpful information. As new staff and shows were added, the wiki also grew along with the site. Michaud even placed links to the wiki below every video, right next to the Channel Awesome Twitter account.
Aside from being a database for all things Channel Awesome, the wiki is also a news archive. The Wiki goes to live events such as the February donation drive and report on what happens there as it happens.
When Michaud decided to expand TGWTG.com into different channels, the wiki decided to change with it. Laura decided the name should better fit the new site and thus the TGWTG Wikia was changed into the Channel Awesome Wikia as subsites were created.

Starting April 21st, 2010, the wiki produced specials honoring the site.
- Blistered, Inked and Awesome (April 21st, 2010 in the blogs, May 1st, 2010 on the front page of TGWTG.com)
Blistered, Inked and Awesome was a collaborate effort by Cferra, Chaos, Daffy and Spike's Girl to assemble the wiki team and create a video honoring Channel Awesome on it's second birthday. In the video, they had Spike's Girl fall asleep while working on the wiki. She then dreamt of the team and others having the talent of Channel Awesome's contributors. The vid proved that nothing could ever top the original.
