This link is for the wiki page of r/todayIlearned, one of Reddit's most popular subreddits. Reddit allows the moderators of a subreddit to create a wiki page specifically for their subreddit, where they can post relevant information, links to other sites, rules on conduct and behavior, or the type of posts they require for the subreddit.

It's not exactly a wikipedia-type wiki, but the idea that multiple people can collaborate to communicate information is the main idea behind both concepts. The subreddit wiki relies on contributors to input accurate and updated information, but the fact that wiki editing is closed to only moderators means that some of the problems of Wikipedia pages, like accuracy or coordination, are at least minimized.
