Fan History feels like it is at this point where, in order to further our mission, we need to expand our contributor base a bit. We’ve talked amongst our admin team about methods to do that. One solution that we’ve been considering is to find a for-profit company or a non-profit that would help us with our mission. Rejection from one for profit wiki related company. Now we’re talking to WMF. Before we did that, we contacted a few people inside the organization who gave us the same feedback: Most projects of this type come from inside of existing WMF projects. Most of them were not aware of projects outside WMF that had been brought into the fold.
If we were serious about this, we would need to float it on the mailing list. We did and our proposal can be found at here. If you want to join the list, details are here. The initial feedback is interesting and has given us a lot of food for thought. If you have any feedback that you want to give us, please drop a comment here.
