Domestic encyclopedia

Projects on wikia like "The Encyclopedia of Virtual Communities in Hong Kong", "The Encyclopedia of Bus Transport in Hong Kong", "The Encyclopedia of Hong Kong Citizens and Cultures", "The Encyclopedia of Railway Transport in Hong Kong", "The Encyclopedia of Television in Hong Kong" and so on are working out rather successfully and provide vital information that are not allowed to be covered on Wikipedia due to notability requirement, and these projects also attracted substantial amount of contributors and readers for the knowledge available on these sites. WMF can probably learn from these projects and provide a counterpart of them to web users around the world

This is a proposal for a new Wikimedia sister project.
