If you're looking for the name of a minor character in Star Wars or trying to brush up on the lore of the latest big video game, you'll probably end up on a wiki website hosted by Fandom.
Unlike Wikipedia, Fandom is for-profit, but all of the content is written for free by a community that is happy just to have exposure. Recently, conflict has been brewing as Fandom tries to push monetised yet low-quality video on the platform, sometimes at a detriment to the free work provided by fans.
