Details of the proposal
Project descriptionIt aims to dispose all content that can be arranged in a museum and that has enough notoriety for such, separated in small projects, like Museum of Art, Museum of Fossils etc.

It is different from Wikipedia, because the criteria of notoriety are different, it is not necessary that each object be covered by sources, for example, it is enough that it has “museum interest” (to be better defined the criteria). It is also different from Wikipedia by the provision of information (the image becomes the center), by the multilingual style, as in Wikidata, among others.

It differs from Commons because it not only stores images and catalogs them, but explains them, relates them, and does so in all possible languages, for public, like ina Museum. Will use Commons as archive.

It differs from the Wikidata because its information is not only objects but also contains a text.

I suggest that each page has a museum object, with a main photo and other photos (other angles, etc.) a larger text, and links as in wikidata for artist, place where it is found etc.
Is it a multilingual wiki?It would be a multilingual project, where the user decides which language to access. Kind of like it's done today at the Wikidata

  • Pretty interesting. I was thinking of something like this too. We have tons of old machins from the industrial age in Thiers, some still in use. It could even be filmed with people using it. -- Thibdx (talk) 18:24, 26 July 2018 (UTC)
