WikiAlpha is an open encyclopedia, journal and news source anyone can contribute to. WikiAlpha was launched on the 19th 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 June 5th, 2013 mentioned WikiAlpha's coverage of third-party Transformers in a positive light.[1]
