From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Wikilists should be a mutli-lingual wiki with the purpose of collecting lists of things. Often times during research I wish there existed such a reliable source of information here on the interweb.

Possible Use[edit]

There are countless ways in which a collective of lists linking to articles on their subject could aid a person in achieving whatever goal it is they may have.

A list of confirmed bipolar notables and a list of songs about being bipolar would assist one in writing a thesis on the topic of bipolar creativity; or, perhaps, that same list of songs could assist a bipolar adolescent in comforting himself during a depressive episode. Or, perhaps, a list of mods for a specific computer game could assist a gamer in his search for a recreational past time that he enjoys. Or, perhaps, a list of religions practiced around the world could assist one in a spiritual quest. Or, perhaps, a list of science fiction writers could bring inspiration to an aspiring novelist. Or, perhaps a list of methods of acting could bring a struggling acting student to that grade she needs to bring her GPA up.

Example articles[edit]

There are plenty of examples on wikipedia, including my noted examples above. It is my belief that all such articles on wikipedia should then be transwikied onto wikilists.
