A collection of fair use images is a contradiction in terms. Fair use relies on editorial context. An image as such is never fair use, much less a collection of images. This proposal appears to be based upon a profound misunderstanding of what fair use is. -- 217.234.252.187 22:04, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

I've noticed that people get upset when conspiracy theories leak into regular articles. but some topics have more conspiracy than anything. I think it would be neat to creat a wiki that features conpiracy theories. Then we could keep regular sites clean and still give the full flavorful rich part of our culture known as crazy conspiracy theories spread its wings. plus with peer editing alot of those long ramblings could be rendered coherent. could be fun--Olsdude 01:44, 21 January 2006 (UTC)

Since I'm not the proposer I'm not going to change the stated scope. But here is my suggestion, which I am sharing with other wikichemists:

  • Database of all significant chemicals (i.e. commercially available, including fine chemicals)
    • Experimental details - microscale and macroscale synthesis, real-life spectra (opposed to that generated by prediction software)
  • Compound classes
  • Reactions
  • Lab technique and good laboratory practices
  • Laboratory equipment, including:
    • operation
    • preventive maintenance
  • Analytical tools
    • sample preparation
    • data collection
    • interpretation

  • It may be more appropriate to discuss these details here than in wikipedia, which is more appropriate

WikiPharmaEdit

Overview Many Pharmaceuticals are already listed quite extensively in wikipedia.

However, so are many words and species, yet these have been granted their own projects. I think a wikiPDR-type community would be very convenient, especially since the online PDR is not available for free to the general public or researchers. I am a graduate student of pharmacology, but the online version of the definitive text of pharmacology is restricted only to one branch of the science-medical-research community. If interested, this could also be incoroporated into the Medical Dictionary mentioned above, however I think it would be best to keep the drug information in a wiki of it's own.

On Wikipedia, there is a lot of terminology that can get pretty complicated, otherwise known as Jargon. Many of the users of Wikipedia are of a younger generation, say, 6-12th grade. For them, this terminology will make everything in that article seem to hard for them, which will lower the users of Wikipedia significantly. See the details for more.

    I really have no problem with essays, please see #Wikithesis above, however it is absolutely stupid for you to censor these essays. A powerful and passionate voice is necessary for a good essay. Besides, who is to judge "filthy" from "clean" and deny one's civil liberties because of it. * I proudly declare, Fuck, no.Anonymous TALK 14:23, 24 October 2007 (UTC)
  • This looks like a blog. Why do you need a Wikimedia project and wiki software to do this? You may use a blog site.--Pere prlpz 19:52, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

  • I think this is a great idea. I'm guessing the format would be a hierarchal tree of all knowledge in a similar way Wikispecies has been set up. I found an interesting article on the topic here. Though, I’m not sure that ontology is the correct terminology. Epistemology is probably closer to the ojective. Though, even that is not the accurate term. But wikiepistemology? Yuk! Someone with more knowledge on the matter would probably come up with a good name. I think it's only a matter of time when this needs to be done as the Dewey Decimal System dosn't quite cut it anymore when wikipedia itself is managing over 1.5 million articles. – E!
