I had bought mediawikicookbook.com
and put a wiki up on it with specifically this idea...
I never got time to do it and let the domain expire a couple of days ago. I'd be up
for putting it back up and hosting it if a few others wanted to help build out a cookbook
I specifically was looking at a lot of Semantic MediaWiki templates.
Interested? Ping me..

I'm wondering if there has been any suggestion to
set up a template
sharing area in Mediawiki, or all Mediawiki based sites similar to
instant commons. I have noticed that there are a LOT of us , me included
that use the templates from other sites. I certainly don't have the
skill to write them myself so I usually just copy & paste them. However
if they are upgraded by the authors, I don't usually get the updates. It
seems this would be especially helpful to those maintaining translated
sites. I realize this would not work for all templates as it doesn't for
all media in commons. I use some original media & some from instant
commons. Template sharing should work just as easily, & it would assist
in growing Wikipedia more quickly.
