- The site was requested at www.wikicities.com on the 28th of December 2004. Request was accepted the next day, but Sgeo was offline that whole day. On the 30th, it was announced on JRChat
- Sgeo only started the site. GreenReaper made a lot of its content.
- But it would be nice if others made even more! :-) GreenReaper
- Sgeo asked on JRChat (on the 28th, after requesting the wiki) what the title should be. The title, however, was never set according to that. The title was already Creatures Wiki when Sgeo launched the site on the 30th. Suggested titles:
- WikiCreatures (Sgeo)
- Wiki Creatures (Sgeo)
- Wikicreatures (Sgeo)
- Wikitures (JacketFan)
- CWiki (JacketFan) (pronounced "quicky") - rejected due to possible confusion with http://www.creatureworld.net, although it has had some use in Sine
- Crea-Wi (JacketFan)
- Kiwi (flip8) A lot of people seemed to be in favor of this one...
