There is actually incubator.wikimedia.org although I don't think that's entirely relevant to the needs here, but can't external wikis be used for this, or the likes of Wikia where ultra-inclusionism is welcomed? -- Mentifisto 11:45, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

The theory behind this is not ultra-inclusionism. A very large portion of content to come to the project is likely to have to be deleted. There is really no way to use external wikis for this. Perhaps external wikis could be used for starting new projects (though those are not ideal as there are problems such as having ads and not being able to have unified login), but external wikis cannot really be used for starting new subprojects, expanding existing projects, or relocating existing material to existing projects. There is the issue that most Wikimedians are not aware of the full scope of the Wikimedia projects (a quick look down the proposals for new projects page proves this). This could be used to help the transwiki process, to build existing projects, or showing users to the correct project. This cannot be done with an external wiki. --Yair rand 17:19, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
Those looking for ultra-inclusionism should see inclupedia. But I think that including Jimbo Wales' quote at the top and noting how it hasn't been met will automatically cause inclusionism to come to many people's minds. Tisane 21:39, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
