This is a draft to try out redesign as proposed on Village Pump

(Style now similar to Main page, this is just the first stage, more to follow)


WikiSocial is the social networking wiki started by Chris Picone and continued by WillSWC. Unlike most wikis, its function is not to serve as a knowledge base for a topic. WikiSocial aims to connect people through the Internet using the features of MediaWiki, the engine WikiSocial is built on. In many ways it is similar to the popular Social Networking website, MySpace, but there are many differences. The largest difference is the flexibility and the openness that WikiSocial provides. You can edit almost every aspect of your UserPage with much more freedom than on MySpace.

These are some of the Aims of WikiSocial

  1. Create dynamic social networks - you can interact across a range of interests and social groupings (profile to wiki levels)
  2. Enable Inter-wiki Collaboration - We will be able to help other wikis that have a social focus and perhaps more importantly allow new wikis to build their community from our userbase.
  3. Encourage expression of different interests - Although many editors belong to lots of different wikis (and other social groups) it can be difficult for others to appreciate this bigger picture if they only see you on one wiki.
  4. Attract New Editors - Users of Social Networking sites will learn how to use the wiki software and will be able to discover the wikis they will be most interested in through members of those wikis.
