I would like to create Wikronyms, a free acronym wiki site that removes the ANNOYING paywalls of other acronym sites. This wiki probably should allow original research, but what about citations?

This is a proposal for a new WMF sister project.
Status of the proposal
Statusunder discussion

Project descriptionWikronyms should be a free acronym site where people can contribute, and we can make lots of acronyms. Click here on what I’d like a normal Wikronyms page to look like.
