Zappa Wiki Jawaka is a Wiki about Frank Zappa. It was established in 2005.

Mainstream notability

During the fund raising for the movie/vault archiving project Who the F*@% is Frank Zappa? Alex Winter divulged his enjoyment of Zappa Wiki Jawaka...: "This isn't my own research — all these great quotes from Nando are from off the extremely robust Zappa Wiki Jawaka, which I thoroughly enjoy." [1]

Alas such praise is not universal. The editors at Wikipedia decided that this wiki was of limited value due to the lack of a robust editorial policy and the limited number of editors. A trend that continues as a single editor can daily spam so many articles that it becomes an onerous task for other editors to work through them all correcting all the spelling/typo mistakes, factual inaccuracies, or discuss whether tabloid sensationalism deserves equal weighting as verifiable content. etc. All of which devalues the work as a whole.
