I understand Mav's reservations, even though
I'm for a wikispecies. Why
don't we simply have a trial w-species on that wikispecies.org
site, try out
a few interface designs, and back-end stuff, and see if it'll work? That
way, it won't be a wikiproject, but it will still exist and let people use
it, see if it's popular/used enough, and if it gets the go-ahead from
Media-Wiki, move whatever was done over to Media-Wiki.
That is what the Wikimedia Commons is for.
