Wikia founder Jimmy Wales has announced that he will be discontinuing the Wikia Search service due to poor popularity. Wales cites slow traffic and disappointing returns as the reason the search service will be stopped.
The search engine allowed users to rate their returns to help further refine search rankings. The search service was imagined as a user-generated search engine. The project will be stopped to help save money in the current harsh economy.
"While I personally believe in the opportunity for free software to make serious inroads into the search space, our project, Wikia Search, has not been enjoying the kind of success that we had hoped," wrote Wales.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
