Project idea[edit]

What is the problem you're trying to solve?[edit]

While users visit the site hundreds of times, it does not lead them to their favourite topics in their specific field of interest. Nor does it inform about new entries/update in their field

What is your solution?[edit]

As an access point to the main Wikipedia content, users will login to a start page which customizes their choices and better reflects their tastes i.e. background colour, appearance, font size, keeps a history log of topics seen and tailors future suggestions accordingly. Thus if a user wishes to re-visit a topic consulted after 10-15 days, it will be far easier and quicker to start from the point the user left last. An added feature will be something like StumbleUpon [or UCmore but without strings or hiccups] as an easy way to offer new, interesting yet relevant things from across Wikipedia, Wikimedia, Wikiversity, Wikibooks and related platforms [like a blog roll on the side which gets updated periodically].
