Yearly Features Hub

Annual features

Happy New Year, everyone! This may be coming a little too late, but The Backrooms Wiki staff is delighted to announce the annual features of 2023! It sure was an amazing year for the site and we saw some articles that can only be described with one word, and that is excellence. Which articles were the most excellent though, and which ones for each month? That is the purpose of this collection. Using a Google form, the community voted on one article from each month to be featured as the best of that month, which has now been compiled below. This page features a year-in-review of the best of the best from this year, along with featuring the author(s) who wrote it. Thank you to all the authors and readers who have contributed and read to the wiki in this year of 2023, without you, the wiki would be nothing! Let's hope for the best and let us have a brilliant year of 2024!

Level 2

Level 2, for hundreds of years, had acted as somewhat of a nexus for various groups to converge in one common area. Its landscape was, for many groups, a decent area to attempt settling due to its hub-like nature to many different levels, many of which had food and water…

Plants… Water… Those are basic things? What if this has to do with the creation of the Backrooms itself.

Peter Todd: Hah, yeah! And maybe it has something to do with the Glitchton, too!
