Many might be willing and joyful in sacrify time and effort, skill and possessions, if able to contribute:

1. Without putting it into trade, commercial use, exchange tit for tat and direct or indirect approve/acceptance of such.

2. Without approve/acceptance of ethical misuse

3. May content (of course not as much as with incl. commercial use) is given in such a frame and not reallyopen to get broad "growd work" joined on a bigger stage.

4. Such a project would possible increase more ethical awareness, increase values of proper gratitude and generosity.

Further more the content should possible not be primarly marked with rights and restrictions but presented as gift to possible increase awarness in regard of more subtle debts one takes on, without ceating the receiver with such as "free" or "no strings" and if wished by contributors, giver might be named as such.

Proposed by[edit]

Sure there are many who might had or even have ideas about such a project and it would be not possible to count the first place. How ever, such (if not feeling to much disturbed when counting such) is always suggested by the wise.

Alternative names[edit]

Wikinotrade or wikigratitude or wikiethic or a better, possible not to "discriminating" pride in regard of global wiki's objectives and feel offended by such

For now, possible even not increasing, my person, at least to make a suggestion of something worthy to invest ones sacrifies more secure and with higher longtime benefits, if wished. Feel free to take on, take over and get others to join.

End note[edit]

May a possible poor approach in many outwardly regards errors and spelling be apologized. Please feel free to add certain reviews to the original purpose and edit it.

This proposal was made in trust that it was given and welcome to do so by the owner and giver of the possibility. May it be apologized if actually not the case. No claims attached, given in frames of intent like reflected in the proposals purpose. (Not thought for commercial use of it and not thought of being used for harmful deeds.)
