This looks interesting, if not entirely clear. Peter jackson (talk) 10:28, 20 December (CST)

It says neutrality and verifiability remain policy, but doesn't seem to provide either definitions or enforcement systems.

Perhaps more interesting is Larry's broader perspective. He seems to be envisaging a system of navigation that would enable people to find and compare articles on a topic anywhere, rather than the current system where articles on obscure websites get ignored, however good they are. If they're considered good by plenty of people they'd get noticed. Details unclear, but it should help us here if it can be got to work. I don't know anything about this technical stuff.

He is mistaken that there are "millions" out there eager to edit. There are thousands... We've learned that. Fred Bauder (talk) 07:43, 21 December (CST)

Seems like a good place to post your articles. Fred Bauder (talk) 07:42, 21 December (CST)

There are only thousands willing to edit within the WP system/culture. But what Larry's talking about is people writing anything they like anywhere they like. How many people would be, or already are, willing to post such material, free from interference by other editors? I don't know. You may be right. Certainly Wikinfo, Citizendium and Wikisage don't seem to be attracting much participation. I wonder why not. WP participation has been declining since. Last I heard it was below half peak. Thousands of people have left for various reasons. Where are they all?
The reason I left Wikipedia was its lack of a proper dispute resolution system. There's no clear indication of one in Everipedia yet, so I'll just keep a bit of an eye on it. Peter jackson (talk) 12:13, 21 December (CST)
