Ad-Free Education Wikis
This program is no longer available as of August 11, 2009Dear Educators,
It’s with much regret that we’re announcing the end of the “Ad Free for Education Sites” program here at Wetpaint. While the program has been a tremendous success and has been used by educators around the world, it comes at a high cost to Wetpaint. With the company’s resources stretched thin, we can no longer effectively support the program going forward.
Anyone that already has a Wetpaint site in the “Ad Free for Education Sites” program or requested entry into the program prior to August 10, 2009 will remain in the ad-free program and their sites will remain ad-free.
Wetpaint does offer ad-free options for a monthly subscription; details of that program can be found here.
Wetpaint thanks the education community for their use of Wetpaint over the past two years and we look forward to supporting the community again in the near future.
The Wetpaint Crew
Note: Wetpaint cannot currently permit students under the age of 13 to register on Wetpaint.com, per COPPA
Q & AQ: Why did you get rid of the program?
A: It was rather expensive to administer. Every week Wetpaint would get over 1000 requests from educators for ad free sites. To administer the project, we would have to review every single one of them to make sure they qualified for the program.
Q: So now what do we do?
A: Wetpaint does offer premium subscriptions which remove advertising from the site. That is an option. Additionally, there are several other collaborative web services that offer educators ad free websites if the premium option is too expensive.
Q: If I’m in it but want to start a new one, can I do that?
A: No. Sites that are already in the program will remain ad free going forward but new sites will not be admitted. We recommend educators turn over the site from session to session. You can add new users and delete old ones.

It is now time to start thinking about next year and taking a post-wetpaint step. What are your 2.0 suggestions for another wiki atmosphere? Wetpaint is simply unsustainable for educators. Let's make a list. with pros and cons of each...
Wetpaint=hates educatation, loves CSI, costs 1 million dollars to rent a wiki for 30 students per year.

This task is not possible from my recent research of these help forums. You can "ban" members, but that is not the same thing. So yes, Wetpaint, I would like to re-create my site each year with a new class and continue to use your service.... but first you need to have better controls over the members such as a simple "delete" tool just like you refered to in the FAQ with your announcement.
And just as others have responded to this sad news, I too have referred several people to this service for both education and other purposes. To dishonor the loyal education base in this manner... right before the school year at that.... is really disheartening to me. I will no longer be recommending Wetpaint.
