Hello, I just added this proposition :
Here is the summary :
Currently there are still some digital works which can not be published
on a wikimedia projects, because none of them have the right editorial
guideline to host them. Things like original poetry, songs, essays,
theses, novels, etc., wether they were already previously published or
It would be great to see wikimedia launch a project to host this kind
The no original research for wikipedia is understable and very
important of course. Now what's relevant for an encyclopedia may not fit
others projects which need different editorial guidelines. In existing
projects Wikibooks is too pedagogic works oriented, and wikisource won't
accept works which were not previously published elsewhere.
Moreover, one may argue that it would be a good way to softly evacuate
originals works from wikipedia, with a message like "your contribution
contains original claims, wikipedia is not the place to publish this
kind of content, but you could share your original work on wikikultur".
Then eventualy, the wikipedia article could use wikikultur arcticles as
references. This would give access to authoring information (eventually
anonymous/IP claims), and all avantages of a free/libre work on a wiki.
For example, we may have statistics on articles, so we can check if it's
not used as a reference of an over represented point of view in an
On artistics topics, I think it would really help to boost the
free-libre culture movement to have a place where every artists can
directly experiment what it means to share and build together, with an
audience intertwinned with other mediawiki projects.
It looks like other proposed projects would be included in such a
project, like Wikiessay (I just discovered and I'm gonna read others
projects description, sorry), but others aspect don't seem - at first
glance - to be covered, like artistics topics.
