Wikijunior's been struggling as it is in getting writers, and we've concentrated
only on three subjects. Any sort of specialty encyclopedia isn't going to work, and
even if it is, it's going to distract from Wikijunior, my pet, which we *need* to get
done before December, or loose US$10000.
My personal preference is just keeping Simple English Wikipedia as is, for learners of the
language. There's millions and millions of potential readers, I'll even
investigate promoting the site to immigration organizations if we keep it as is.
I'd prefer the project be changed entirely to reflect something more
like what was suggested at <http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikikids>
(in all languages). People wanting to write simple versions of
existing English Wikipedia articles can focus on simplifying the lead
sections of those. Having that on a separate wiki has not proved
useful, whereas having something that is written by and for children
may be different enough from the main Wikipedia to warrant its own
