'''WikiAlpha''' is an [[open content|open encyclopedia]], [[journal]] and [[news source]] anyone can contribute to. WikiAlpha was launched on 19 June 2011.
+
 
+
==Motivation==
+
The rise of [[Wikipedia]]'s aggressive deletion policies particularly regarding 'non-notable' topics and articles published by Wikipedia newbies has been one of the primary motivations for creating WikiAlpha. The creators [[User:Richard]] and [[User:Govind]] feel that Wikipedia no longer serves the public interest as an encyclopedia that 'anyone can edit.' Seeking to expand on the concept of a publicly modifiable real-time publication, we have created WikiAlpha to serve this need.

+
==Approaching editors with AfDs on Wikipedia==
+
 
+
WikiAlpha actively searches out Wikipedia editors who are having their articles deleted and (if possible) retrieves their article and posts it on WikiAlpha, sending its creator a message telling them this.
+
 
+
==Reception==
+
The [[moonbase2]] podcast for 5 June 2013 mentioned WikiAlpha's coverage of [[third-party Transformer]]s in a positive light.<REF>{{Cite podcast | url = http://moonbase2.libsyn.com/episode-245| title = moonbase2| website =http://moonbase2.libsyn.com | publisher =moonbase2 | host =Andy Millman | date = June 5th, 2013}}</REF>
