Wikidirectory is a directory of links organized by category. There is already a project on this subject outside Wikimedia, DMOZ, but it isn't an open wiki, links must be submitted and approved by a category curator. Furthermore, this project is easy to set up with current software.

  4. Nice concept Archi38 (talk) 16:33, 13 March 2016 (UTC)
  5. Support With caveats, listed sites should ideally be drawn from those already cited in other projects. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 14:08, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
  6. Support support Very good idea. -- issimo 15 !? 20:09, 19 June 2016 (UTC)
  7. Support Support This wiki would be the natural extension of the "External links" section of Wikipedia, and many Wikipedia articles could contain, at the bottom of the "External links" section, a link to this wiki. --Felipe (talk) 13:05, 1 July 2016 (UTC)
  8. I'm in, I think it's wonderful, so I support. --Evachan39 (talk) 15:34, 5 November 2016 (UTC)

  12. Support due to DMOZ closing and the fact that the Wikimedia community has had bad experiences with AOL before (remember the dynamic proxies?) KATMAKROFAN (talk) 22:44, 8 March 2017 (UTC)
  13. Support However we should really look at adopting DMOZ. They are looking for a new home. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 04:05, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
  14. Support adopting DMOZ, not particularly fussy about the name, but could use both for transition. · · · Peter (Southwood) (talk): 08:01, 9 May 2017 (UTC)
  15. Support Support I support this idea. --Samuele2002 (Talk!) 21:09, 9 May 2017 (UTC)
