Introducing TWC Archive: An Open TWC Wiki
« on: May 23, 2020, 12:00:39 AM »
Hi everyone! I've got a personal project that I've started on that I think would be useful to the community. I'd like to introduce TWC Archive!

A lot of the information and history of TWC is scattered all over the place. Some of it lives here, a fair amount was removed from Wikipedia because it didn't meet the scope of the site, some of it just lives on random websites and YouTube videos just waiting to be discovered.

My goal is to gather that information in one place and preserve it. I'd love the help to make this thrive, and exist along side sites like TWC Classics and TWC Today. Anyone can join to contribute to the wiki. Right now at launch though, it is quite bare and needs content.

Join us at TWC Archive and help preserve TWC history today at https://www.twcarchive.com

You can use the pages from my ex-active, yet somewhat still active, wiki site... The Weather Channel Wiki. I gave up on it but any TWC-related content you find, you can take it. No questions asked.

Oh cool someone made this wiki a thing! Are playlists of local forecasts allowed too on the wiki?

Thanks man! Appreciate it :) I'll try and put some of that to good use.

Yup! It's something directly related to TWC so that's completely fine

The funny thing is, there is a TWC Wikia Fandom, but most of it is just random local news station, even though it should strictly be about the actual Weather Channel itself. Nevertheless, I used to edit there until it got messy.

There's hopes for TWC to be good again

Yeah and yours truly created that wiki. I stopped caring for it a while ago.
