Big Cloud

The Big Cloud

The Big Cloud is a metaphor for all the pages in a wiki which are, by some means or another, linked to one another in the large bulk of the wiki. There are several smaller clouds (usually of only two or three WikiPages each, linked to one another) outlying the Big Cloud, and there are a reasonable number of Orphaned Pages (WikiPages with no links to them whatsoever) on the outskirts.

The addition of the "Links Here" links on WikiPages and the Orphaned Pages/BadPages pages were supposed to alleviate the problem of Orphaned Pages, but have met with limited success. There is currently a debate on the Orphaned Pages Problem and how to solve it.
