* LostInTranslation: The Wikipedia Project has become so ubiquitous that fans have made their own wikis for specific subjects. Sites such as Teletraan 1 for Transformers or Memory Alpha for Star Trek have become the go-to places for specifics on those shows. Some cultures have even devoted entire wikis to a ''single person''. In fact the Japanese equivalent to "Google it" roughly means "check out its wiki".

'''Wikipedia''' is the most famous wiki out there, and is mostly responsible for inspiring the creation of other wikis ([[OlderThanTheyThink although it was not the first]]). It presents its information as an encyclopaedia and focuses mainly on real-life information.

* TakeAThirdOption: Most deletion discussions are closed as "keep" or "delete". However, some can end up closed for other reasons: either the page qualifies for a "speedy" deletion, so a discussion is redundant; the nominator withdraws without objection for others; no clear consensus in either direction is formed after several weeks; or the nomination is obvious {{Troll}}ing.
