Proposal talk:Wiki for kids

From Strategic Planning

This is sort of what SImple English is for.

Not exactly. Simple English is a simple language, but not necessarily simple content.
However, it is possible to implement this proposal just by creating a pseudo-language for each language, i.e. "English for kids", "Hebrew for kids", etc. --Erel Segal 22:53, 26 August 2009 (UTC)[reply]

There is already a wikibooks:Wikijunior in several languages. HenkvD 20:59, 31 August 2009 (UTC)[reply]


Some proposals will have massive impact on end-users, including non-editors. Some will have minimal impact. What will be the impact of this proposal on our end-users? -- Philippe 00:19, 3 September 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Wikipedia for kids

What do you think about a Wikipedia especially for kids, where the content is reduced to a minimum which would be perfect for kids. They would have the possibility to get informations about sth. they really want to know and they can get the informations in a size perfect for their "level". Everyone knows that the students/kids do researches on the internet already in 2nd grade, so it would be perfect for them when they use a "smaller" version of Wikipedia.

Why only for kids?

I would suggest to split the article in sections which are marked with a number from 1 to 10 that indicates how easy they are to read. Maybe you could then select the maximum of complicity for yourself, so that the topics which are too comlicated automatically get hidden. (technical detail: I would propose to store it in a session cookie for users that aren't logged in and for people that are logged in as user-specific setting.) You could also set specific topics with another value. --TheJH 14:51, 22 September 2009 (UTC)[reply]
