Overview I'd like to propose a new wiki project to answer to all the questions that people have about a "why" in different categories, like science, life, functioning of mechanisms or reasons why things are as they are.

  •   CommentI think wikiqwer can be an alternative name, besides, is multilingual a good choice? I think it is a better choice to have one site for each languege.not a user:慎言慎行老法师寫維基?寫個屁! 11:34, 3 July 2020 (UTC)

  •   Support Interesting proposal. I think a crucial point is how answers will be "chosen" (by consensus, as in other wikis?) and how to guarantee a neutral point of view. --Daniele Pugliesi (talk) 18:58, 26 July 2020 (UTC)
  •   Comment I'm not clear. Would this essentially function like sites such as Yahoo Answers? SecretName101 (talk) 23:30, 1 April 2021 (UTC)
  •   Oppose This is a special case of WikiAsk (recreated). It would be better to join forces. — Robert Važan (talk) 00:24, 2 July 2021 (UTC)
