the idea[edit]

This is the page for a semi-dependant Project, Wikinortheast, for the 2 million people living in Northeast England, which consists of the counties of Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, County Durham, and Unitary county of Teesside. It's idea is to give News to the Northeast, about economics, sport, events and so on. Which would be too minor to other projects on Mediawiki, Dicussion forums, a small geograghy atlas for locations in Tyne and Wear, a history book on the strong Medieval and Roman history of the areas. lists of famous people from Tyne and Wear and so on. I will need help from the main Project to construct it until it can support itself, then it can run on public donations. Nitro calibur 19:57, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

Some things[edit]

The northeast is home to 2 million people, so that could create at least a few thousand or hundred users, from the northeast if they can hear about it, which could help.

Add comments here, not my userpage[edit]

This is perhaps more suitable as a Wikia project, see [1] for other examples.--Patrick 18:52, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

Or, since Wikia (though an excellent site) keeps 100% of the ad revenues from its new Wikia projects, you may also wish to look into this venue which lets editors keep the revenues: [2].
