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.
