Referata Comments

I Prefer Referata, because Wikia is full with ads

Positive Comment by em4020
about Referata and MediaWiki, Wikia Dec 2012

Referata is very similar to Wikipedia. It also uses MediaWiki, equal as Wikipedia does. I do not like Wikia, because it is full with ads, whereas Referata is free of ads. It is also very easy to copy text from Wikipedia to Referata and vice versa, because both use the same syntax.
