Yeah, I was asking about the reason for duplicate effort. Usually when someone starts a competing fandom wiki, it's because of some deficiency with the earlier one that isn't addressable by working with the first one.

The reason why admin is needed is that there has been much spam in Jeopardy! History Wiki and many people are putting false information on upcoming hosts of Jeopardy.

You still haven't answered Robert's question in the first place. Why is there a second Fandom Wiki when one already existed?

Probably to avoid confusion because there is another show called Jeopardy which is a science fiction drama program.

I owe you an apology for not realizing that jeopardy.fandom.com is not even directed to the game show! I even went there and clicked around, and the obvious still escaped me, as it often does.
