Ameriwiki is a conservative wiki-based website with a stated objective of being friendly to differing points of view. It was created in June 2011 by the user "George Fitzgerald" following a visit to RationalWiki discussing the concept for a right-wing American Christian website that wasn't as embarrassing as Conservapedia "by being much more tolerant and accepting to editors of other worldviews, and having a radically different blocking policy". It currently has over 1000 articles. The latest project seems to be a drive to create actual encyclopaedic content; an Ameriwiki admin has pirated Wikipedia's list of required articles and is encouraging people to create the whole list.
It initially became the latest haven for Conservapedia refugees, ranging from longtime editors such as Rob Smith and to new users who were upset with Conservapedia's Conservative and his edit spree on bestiality.
The current wiki is owned by Sam Coulter (a banned Conservapedia user), who also currently leads the site. George Fitzgerald left the site on February 21, 2012, to create a new video game wiki that was active for less than two weeks. The defunct wiki can be found here. He came back a while later only to attempt force his will on the wiki, and resorted to vandalism when other users forbid him to do so. He was eventually banned permanently from Ameriwiki, and founded "Conservatism wiki" at here. Ameriwiki troll James Wilson, under the user name of Elvis is King was immediately made an administrator, and proceeded to make a joke of the main page. Conservatism Wiki's list of reasons for blocking users bears absolutely no resemblance at all to Conservapedia's. Shortly after he was banned from Ameriwiki, it was announced at Conservatism Wiki that George Fitzgerald died on a car accident on June 3, 2012. The announcement was made by user Ronald, who claims to be a personal friend of George.
 Userbase and point of view
Ameriwiki is a Christian-friendly and conservative-friendly wiki and keeps a focus on US issues. The site is open to different opinions on the origin of the universe and of life and does not censor any POV.
Initially all the non-wandal editors were from RW and much of the initial content came from a RW user and a disgruntled former Conservapedia Sysop, grunting out Cold War nonsense and the site owner made a few minor POV edits and stubs on things, and making policies and stuff. They adopted an ASKesque blocking policy which is also being drafted.
Ameriwiki has kept its promise of not banning users and being inclusive by only banning a Colbert troll for a single day and allowing a mainspace article on Lady Gaga. This also extends to user rights, being reluctant to remove rights from those who abused them.
Ameriwiki basically adopted the user rights structure from A Storehouse of Knowledge with "Trusted Editors" being able to move pages and block vandals and "Senior Editors" being able to delete vandal pages and rollback bad edits.
James Wilson appeared at Ameriwiki only to troll one of the Administrators, presumably because of his politics. He engaged in relentless name-calling of the Administrator, and ad homenim attacks strangely involving celebrities. After much chaos erupted, he finally surrendered and accepted an infinite ban, which was enacted. As of February 2012 Wilson has been allowed back in by George Fitzgerald, apparently much to the disgust of Coulter. This raises the interesting prospect of a fight between the guy who founded the site and the guy who can directly edit the user database. On February 10, Wilson was again banned, with his user and talk pages deleted, due to a consensus by the "Sanction Committee" to remove him from the site. He was also removed from the newly formed Ameriwiki forum. He decided to get revenge by making useless accounts with names such as "ChickenForBrainsLovesTaylorSwift" and "Westboro baptist church". They were banned and removed from the recentchanges by Coulter.
