Showcase

  • Stories - The folk stories of the internet, some stretching into long, sprawling epics.
  • Art - The Internet allows even the most obscure artist to reach dedicated fans anywhere, and utilize their skills in unique ways.
  • History - Internet History from our perspective.
  • Books - Freely editable books and guides with lots of useful information.
  • Collections - Assorted data archives.
  • Website Archives - Archived Websites under our care.

Uploading Images

Images that are an integral part of an article are allowed to be . This includes photos, tables, diagrams, figures, and charts. Since this utilizes Amazon S3 for file hosting, we advise that you use this option sparingly.

Images that are screencaps or of other importance in their own right should be posted to booru.eikonos.org instead. It has more space and fewer bandwidth restrictions.

There is a unique exception to allow images from imgur.com to be embedded. However, whenever possible, either Eikonos or this wiki's own image hosting instead.
