  • It is a proposal so that people can then create wikiproject for their local community on the site. For example a wiki for Chicago. A wiki for Mariana. A wiki for Lagos. Or even A wiki for Inuit or a wiki for Noongar.(Note: the wp/nys wiki for Noongar on incubator was previously made in this way on an incorrect understanding on purpose of wikipedia language versions) Many of these information might not be "encyclopediac" because different communities and different culture might have different understanding on what is noteworthy, and many of these cultures could also lack paper record or even spoken record and thus unable to write a proper wikipedia article for these cultures due to lack of sources. However, they are still important knowledge of humanity that would be the best if they are transmitted into the future, therefore it would be a good idea to start a wiki by member of communities for member of communities. Moderation on content credibility could and should depend on community based on their knowledge about local community instead of source because it is proposed to be a wiki about local culture and events.C933103 (talk) 04:12, 3 January 2018 (UTC)[reply]
