On March 10th 2008, TrumpetManLA (Luke Arredondo) and his brother Adam Arredondo started to build Ghostbusters Wiki. So here we are in 2018 with a article count of 5,593 articles. A lot has happened over the years, and lots of edits! So for the tenth anniversary the wiki has interviewed TrumpetManLA the first active administrator. The interview with him can be read here.
The wiki has also updated the History article about the wiki, and now it includes screen caps of the front pages for each year. Also, we now have a upload of the Ghost Corps' Official Franchise Certificate that was sent to us. We're really proud of it.
The wiki had set out in the beginning because there wasn't really a place that was a encyclopedia covering all things Ghostb…

Where to begin... I am 95% sure that I will be moving from my present house to a different one over the next few months. This means that for "days" at a time, I'll be offline. I expect this to be the case from now til early November. I am also responsible for the IDW comics previews for Spook Central (Fan Site), so I will really be stretched thin. During this time Mrmichaelt will be the better choice to contact on the wiki for help/questions about the wiki. Social media portals on Twitter and Facebook will see even less updates.
This blog was written so that this all is understood, and that I will be returning to regular capacity sometime in November.Read more >
There has always been and will always be a war at the wiki and a endless debate if we should cover this or that. We decided years ago that dedication is a important element in deciding these things. That being said, I think it's important to not leave people hanging on these things.
A long time back it was asked why we removed two submissions on the wiki for fan franchises. The simple fact was there was no system in place, nothing to build from and no one to maintain those. Let's be honest here, three admins run this wiki pretty much, and two of us are daily editors. That is it. None of us do the prop thing, or dress up for the weekend. We are fans of the films, cartoons, comics, and video games. That is what we care about and are dedicated…

For better or worse, Dan Aykroyd stated on Britain’s Channel 4 (Sunday June 4th, 2017):
"Paul Feig made a good movie and had a superb cast and plenty of money to do it. We just wish he had been more inclusive to the originators. It cost everyone as it is unlikely Kristen, Leslie, Melissa and Kate will ever reprise their roles as Ghostbusters which is sad."
- Deadline: Dan Aykroyd Blames Director Paul Feig for ‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot: “It Cost Too Much”
- Video Source: Ross Maclean on Twitter: "Don't hold back, Dan. #Ghostbusters"
- EW: "Dan Aykroyd slams Paul Feig for spending too much on Ghostbusters"

It was decided in a private, a while back that the wiki would try to address voice talent credits, so here we are. This blog is a good place to talk about the guideline and the submission process and also the cleanup.
First of all, the guidelines themselves. It is a rather long read, but it was important to try to cover all the bases possible. New submissions may be added to the talk page for said guidelines.
The second part is dealing with old submissions. I made a list of them, many might be easy to source, while others will be removed. I'm giving the userbase two weeks to remedy these. I'll remove all listed that are not sourced on May 21, 2017. All corrections need to go through the new reference guidelines for voice accrediting.Read more >
Two major milestones to report. The first is that both Mrmichaelt and Devilmanozzy have received Ghost Corps Cadet pins along with a letter and free Classic Ecto Minis Blind Bag (by Mattel). Both letters thank staff of Ghostbusters Wiki for dedication and support of the brand. Both letters by Eric Reich (Executive to Ghost Corps).
Second is the 5,000 article count milestone that was reached by Mrmichaelt with the article "Jean l'Ecorcheur", which he made while doing his run of edits for Ghostbusters International #5. Many thanks again to Mrmichaelt for covering the IDW series.Read more >
I haven't seen the movie and to be honest I really am on the fence about seeing it because one it just doesn't look that good to me. I want to give it a chance, but man those commercials were terrible. I would like to know what you fellow wikia users think. Is it worth seeing? Was it as bad as the ads made it look? Let me know in the comments.Read more >
