WikiAlpha is a free online wiki open encyclopedia, journal and news source site that anyone can sign up and contribute to. The site was first launched using MediaWiki, a free online wiki hosting service provider, on 19 June 2011 by Richard and Govind.
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.
