Private wikis are wikis where either editing or viewing of pages (and very often, account creation too) is limited to a certain group of users. Private wikis are one of the three wiki types that ShoutWiki offers.

Inviting users

The founder of a private wiki can invite other users to join the private wiki via the special page Special:Invite. Invited users must have an existing account. Invited users can be uninvited via the special page Special:Uninvite. These special pages are available only on private wikis.
