Documenting practices on Meta -- possibly combined with subjective
analysis and commentary -- seems like a good idea to me. You don't
need to start a new project or ask for anyone's permission to do this;
just start writing and structuring your thoughts.

Peace & Love,

I think it seems one of the strengths of the Project is its diversity, so -
going by the feedback - it's probably best to aim at coalescing around the
idea of a 'world compendium' rather than 'knocking heads' etc. Maybe in a
Wikia wiki we could suggest good articles from all parts of the globe for
inclusion. Because in most cases I bet we agree on what's good.

peace out
