Hey all, hope your winter is going well and happy holidays to all celebrating something this time of year!
Just wanted to thank everyone who has helped out on the Wiki this year, and I'm not going anywhere soon - I'll be joining you all in this new year (and new decade!) and still trying to keep the Hitchhiker's Wiki in tip top condition!
It is a shame that we've lost some regular contributors - but life is busy and it's very understandable when people have to put other things in front of volunteering to edit Wikis for free, it is just a hobby for most after all! I'm so grateful to anyone who has been here to help with putting some life back into this Wiki - it's come so far since when I first adopted it. I apologise for being busy especiall…Read more >
I just realised it's been a year since I adopted this Wiki - how time flies when you're on a planet with a 364 day year, give or take a leap year!
It's interesting to look back and compare the Wiki to how it was a year ago, it was like a packet of biscuits left forgotten in the back of a mouldy cupboard, but now look at it! We get people updating each week, the logo now makes it clear that this isn't a Wiki about general hitchhiking and backpacking, and our main characters have information on their pages! Wonderful stuff! It makes me quite proud to be part of a community that has helped bring this Wiki up to date, into the 21st century and beyond!
A big thanks to everyone who has contributed and left their footprint on this moon of…Read more >
Hello all! Happy Towel Day to you!
I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has been a part of this Hitchhikers Wiki community over the past few months and made it the great place it is today! It's so good to know that we are growing this community of Hitchhikers fans by the day!
Here's to you all! Hope you have a great Towel Day! I'm going to go and watch the tv series and be sure to keep my towel with me at all time. Catch you later, hoopy froods!

P.S: To celebrate, our new poll is live on the main page! Take a look and vote for your favourite!
It's about time for a new poll on the Main Page - don't you think? We've had so many responses for our current poll, and it's clear that everyone's favourite character is Marvin!
Comment below with your suggestions for new poll topics, any we don't do next will be added to a list for future polls!
I think it could be interesting to find out who everyone's favourite villain or antagonist is from the Hitchhiker's series... or maybe to find out which adaption is everyone's favourite... let me know what you think our next poll could be about!
Keep ahold of your towels, folks!
Here is our list of upcoming polls, feel free to add your suggestions in the comments below and you might see them on the main page in future!

Hi all, just wanted to make you aware that the Main Page has been put under Protection due to recent graffiti.
Thankyou to CarterMahoney for the warning about this particular user, and to Sir Maximillian for reverting said graffiti! Very glad to see community spirit in action despite such disappointing behaviour from that user.
Due to the high volume amounts of graffiti this user has been undertaking, and the fact that they seem keen to continue this behaviour, I have decided to put the Main Page under Protection for an unspecified amount of time in order to save us from having to keep reverting any more graffiti. We have been warned that our Wiki is a target for them, so I think it a good idea to put up some extra precautions for the time …Read more >
