First developed in 1994 by Ward Cunningham as the Wiki’s were referred to as the Wiki-Wiki Web, the Wiki-Wiki was a Hawaiian substitute for “quick” translating to “Quick-Web”. These days Wikis have evolved into website that allows the easy creation and editing of an interlinked website through the web browser. Usually these are powered by Wiki software that collaborates with other websites to power community pages. However the open nature of wiki that allows any user to edit entries leaves them exposed to vandalism and comments that may not be well-meaning to the editor. Wiki does have its own “soft security” to deal with this however sometimes vandalism can go unnoticed for a period of time
