Frontierpedia is an online encyclopedia focused on Microsoft Agent. It is powered by the MediaWiki software, which also powers sites like Wikipedia, Gamepedia, and many other wiki sites. Frontierpedia is the successor to TMAFE Wiki, which was a rebranded version of Konnor88 Wiki. Konnor88 Wiki and TMAFE Wiki both used FANDOM/Wikia, with Frontierpedia moving away and distancing itself from FANDOM/Wikia. The first attempt to create Frontierpedia was on May 3rd, 2019, but the project was later abandoned with four more attempts until the 5.x and 6th attempts. The 5.xth attempt of Frontierpedia was successful and was created on March 28th, 2021. Frontierpedia V5.X started using MediaWiki 1.35.0 and ended on MediaWiki 1.35.7 due to database errors. Frontierpedia V6 started with MediaWiki 1.38.4.
The first iteration of Frontierpedia was created on May 9th, 2019, following the idea proposed by Sebastian and the logo being designed by Cipher. It was using MediaWiki 1.32.0 as its wiki software and was later abandoned. The reasons for this abandonment were lack of MediaWiki extension knowledge, lack of knowledge for non-FANDOM-based infoboxes, and overall difficulty of the original host. Frontierpedia had four more iterations afterward, with three of those being based on MediaWiki and one on FANDOM/Wikia. Frontierpedia V5 was the "tipping point" of showing that a MediaWiki-based wiki separated from FANDOM/Wikia may work. After Frontierpedia V5 was accidentally deleted, the current Frontierpedia was made afterward. TMAFE then been migrating most articles and images from TMAFE Wiki to Frontierpedia. After most articles and images were imported, Frontierpedia served and still serves as the main wiki for TMAFE, its allies, and Microsoft Agent.
On October 8th, 2022, Frontierpedia started to experience database issues more frequently due to being built upon a glitched database, as both Frontierpedia V5.0 and Frontierpedia V5.1 used the same database despite Frontierpedia V5.0 having previously experienced issues. As a result, Frontierpedia V5.X was decommissioned and Frontierpedia V6 was created on the same subdomain the same day. Upon the creation of V6, articles deemed as high quality or important were imported to V6, with all images being imported on October 11th, 2022. A new logo was designed by Soundcard, replacing the old Frontierpedia logo designed by Cipher in 2019.
- The Frontierpedia logo is a parody of the Wikipedia logo, and was created by Cipher in May 2019. The new version of the logo was designed by Soundcard with some slight editing by Konnor88 and adopted on October 10th, 2022.
- FANDOM/Wikia is technically based on MediaWiki but has a lot of differences from when it diverged from MediaWiki.
- Frontierpedia V1 ran on MediaWiki 1.32.0, while the current Frontierpedia runs on 1.39.3.
- The main obstacle in the first few variants of Frontierpedia was a lack of knowledge of MediaWiki extensions and information on creating infoboxes.
- The idea of a MediaWiki based wiki for TMAFE was originally proposed by Sebastian in April 2019.
