About Willemstan and the Willemstan Wiki
What is Willemstan?
Willemstan began in January of 2018 as a class on Google Classroom. It was created by a few bored students in Williamston Middle School. Today, it is a Discord server with over 50 members. We are a self-described "internet cult", and while we are not an actual organization or group of any kind, we have our own mock government and elections. Willemstan exists purely as a fun pastime and social group. Our name "Willemstan" is a distortion of the name "Williamston", the town in which most of us attend.
What is this website?
This section of the website is known as the Willemstan Wiki, and documents our activities through over a hundred articles. It is a massive hobby project and an excuse to learn coding. Development of this website began on March 23rd of 2020 and continues to this day. The idea for the Wiki came about after a failed coup attempt on the same day, in which a mock battle report was generated. This inspired the documentation of other events in Willemstan's history, which eventually lead to all of this.
What does the Willemstan Wiki document?
The Willemstan Wiki is dedicated to recording and archiving the history and timeline of Willemstan. This primarily consists of the events in the Willemstan Discord Server, but also information regarding Williamston Community Schools, because we wanted to learn more about the school in which most of us attend. There's practically nothing about it on the school website or Wikipedia so we thought we would do it ourselves. We do our best to back up these articles with as much relevant research as possible.
Why can't I view some of the articles?
We have password protected most articles on the wiki. Only the articles about the school are available for anyone to read. If you are a member of Willemstan, you should be able to find the log-in information on the Willemstan Discord Server.
When is the Willemstan Wiki updated?
The Willemstan Wiki received scheduled updates during its development phase. Now that the Wiki is largely complete and moved onto a server, this is no longer the case. Instead, the wiki is updated whenever it is necessary in order to keep it up to date with current events. Old articles are also rewritten occasionally. This usually leads to a few hours of work on the website being done each week. To keep up with any major updates, view the Willemstan Website Blog on the sidebar.
