    what's a 'wiki'?
    some people are like slinkies -
    not good for anything, but they bring a smile to your face when they are pushed downs the stairs.

    True enlightenment comes from discovering principles which challenge your spiritual view, not from inventing principles to confirm it.

    I think people on there ought to cite their sources and set a standard format for the pages, or that wiki will frustrate me to no end.

    What was wrong with the regular Wikipedia that a pagan version was needed?

    It's a topic-specific wiki. There are lots of them. For example, Thelemapedia & Star Wars Wiki (AKA Wookiepedia).

    Wikipedia is npov.

    I think that wiki would be a good way to make a collaborative BoS, granted that contributers knew what they were doing and cited sources.

    Seems like a good idea... i think Wikipedia gives some quite fair coverage of Pagan matters, but something that encourages a nice warm huggy community kind of spirit is always nice.

    Though I'm not sure about the grammar.
    Click here is enter the pagan encyclopedia.

    Eh. I guess I understand, but it does seem a little redundant. Whether you use paganwiki (or wookiepedia) or wikipedia, you're still just gonna do a subject search. All that's really changed is the name of the main site.

    If there was a problem with wikipedia's coverage of pagan articles or something like that, I'd be all for it. But so far, paganwiki (or wookiepedia) just seems to be a paganized (wooki-nized) version of wikipedia.

    I kind of like the fact that wikipedia has so many topics. If I click on any of the provided links in an article, who knows where I could end up? (ie, "Thelemy" eventually lead me to the comic book character "Moon Knight")

    its bio for Silver Ravenwolf is rather nasty. How reliable are their sources?
