The Puella Magi Wiki is a huge fan-made English-language archive of speculah, theories, plot analysis, fanworks, and other items related to the Puella Magi Madoka Magica franchise. This wiki stands out from others for it's trove of intelligent discussion and analysis, along with its importance to Anonymous on 4chan's /a/.

Most of this wiki was built by miscellaneous anons and their discussion threads on 4chan's /a/ board.

Making Dumps

We currently use the Wikiteam dumpgenerator python script to create dumps.

Commands used for generating dumps are below:

 python dumpgenerator.py --api=http://wiki.puella-magi.net/api.php --xml --images # Generates full dump using Mediawiki API

When creating dump archives, it is strongly recommended to use 7zip for the highest compression rates.

XML Full History Dumps

Daily Dumps: [1] - Full XML backups built and downloadable from this wiki everyday at midnight. (A true step up from Wikichan or the Insurgency Wiki!)

Easily importable XML dumps containing every edit that any anon has ever made on this wiki.

Image Dumps

Images are crucial to the completeness of a wiki dump.

Archivist's Note: I'm still having some trouble automatically saving the images using the Wikiteam script, perhaps due to Cloudflare protection. Hopefully, the site admins might do it for us...

4chan Threads

The 4chan threads are the ultimate origin for most of the content on this wiki.

Archivist's Note: I think we should simply wget the threads from foolz, since they only save thumbnails anyway.


Other stuff related in some form or manner.

  • [2] - Complete Image packs related to Madoka, possibly collected from 4chan. This needs to be put into the Internet Archive.


  • Iruel - The head archivist of the Bibliotheca Anonoma.
