GateWorld is a popular Stargate fan website. Site content includes news, interviews, podcasts, a forum, a wiki-like encyclopedia (although not publicly editable), and galleries of official images and fanart.

History

The site was initially created with the name "STARGUIDE" by Darren Sumner, a Chicago fan. STARGUIDE was inspired by other fansites such as The Lurker's Guide to Babylon 5, TrekWeb, and TrekToday. It later was moved to "SciFiGuide.net" and Darren added episode guides for Farscape, Babylon 5, Andromeda, and Star Trek.[1]

In 2003, GateWorld began publishing a reference guide section called The Stargate Omnipedia. This uses MediaWiki software, but unlike many fan wikis, is not editable by the public. However, fans can make suggestions for its content.
