A Virtual Front Porch (wiki) to discuss features available on this web site. We use Tiki as the foundation for our collaborative open source common sense encyclopedia.

Tiki is the platform this web site runs on.

It is an open source, collaborative Content Management System.

Combining all the best ideas of the web:

  • Wiki
    • We have around 4,000 pages of knowledge so far...
      • 4,001 once you become a member and create a page!
    • Kind of Like Wikipedia
      • But instead of quoting books, we let you share your knowledge.
    • Everyone's an expert at something.
      • Share your knowledge in a much more relaxed atmosphere.
    • Or share someone else's knowledge by sharing their youtube...
  • We are Fed Up With Facebook
    • Wiki pages are a better way to share with others
    • Pages for your hometown, county, state, country
      • Create swap shops, yellow pages, church pages...
      • Anything you want.
    • Pages about your family. (like Ancestry.com)
    • Pages about your hobbies
  • People used to sit around the front porch

The wiki portion of our site is the main part. It contains our vast open source encyclopedia of common sense.

  • Blogs (like WordPress)
    • Personal or Business
    • What's your passion?
      • Politics?
      • Your local hometown news?
      • Your family?
      • Your favorite parts of this site's wiki?

Blogs can work into our replacement for Facebook's timeline. Every person can have a blog to put personal type info they want to share with friends and family.

  • Articles (like Yahoo News)
    • Write an article
    • Show your:
      • expertise
      • creativity
      • bright ideas

  • Forums (like phpBB)
    • Toss around ideas with like minded people
  • Image Gallery (like Flickr)
  • Map Server (like Google Maps)
  • Link Directory (like DMOZ)

Forums is pretty basic. For now, it's best to just use a wiki page and comments.
