Requests and proposals Proposals for new projects Archives
This page hosts proposals for new Wikimedia projects, in line with the new project process.
  • To propose a new language for an existing project, see Requests for new languages.
  • To propose closing an existing project, see Proposals for closing projects.
  • To suggest an enhancement which requires a change to MediaWiki, file a feature request in Phabricator.
  • To propose enhancements to an existing project, visit that project and gather interest there.

Notes to consider[edit]

  • Hosting: Wikimedia Foundation is not a free hosting company. If your project does not fit the Foundation's ideals, try Wikia or another wiki farm.
  • Need a dedicated project? Think well. Maybe your proposal fits better into one of the existing projects, for example, Wikipedia, Wikibooks, or Commons?
  • History: Individuals attempting to create a new project should read the Wikipedia timeline and Uses of a wiki.
  • Be persistent. Don't take criticism personally. Some users are afraid of repeating mistakes from past projects. Going from an idea to a working wiki takes time and editing and sometimes software development. Be prepared for criticism; if it is a good idea, others will help you out!

The last project to be created was Wikidata. See the history of the project proposal page for Wikidata before it went live. Some proposals below suggesting adopting existing projects. The only time this has happened was when Wikitravel was forked as Wikivoyage and integrated into the Travel guide proposal.

Some common proposals could be merged into one of these as a subproject:

Instructions[edit]

  1. Create an account and a user page on this wiki, so people can address questions to you.
  2. Create a page describing your plan: enter the project name in the box below and click the button.
  3. Link to your proposal from this page, below.
  4. Advertise your project! Good places to do so are on the Wikimedia Forum and the Foundation-l mailing-list.

There was a proposed community committee to developing a clear policy and documentation for creating and reviewing sister projects, and a proposed reform of new project process, both of which are currectly inactive. The currect de facto process are described below:

  1. Any discussion may only be approved by Board of Trustees after a prominent discussion process and a board and clear consensus (dozens and probably hundreds of supports are needed, and the proposal may be open for years)
  2. Any users in good standing may close or merge any proposal if it is clear redundant to another project or project proposal; or is stale and have few support after a considerable amount of time; or have clearly no consensus after a considerable amount of time.
