Can I Set Up a WikiProject?

Hello, everyone; I'm working on a story idea that may be starting to get a little out of hand. I want a place to organize my thoughts and am wondering whether WikiProjects do or could exist here on Shifti. What are your thoughts on this issue?

Hrm... We (the Administrators) have done similar with Shifti in the past - things like the Writer's School - but this would be a first. I, personally, have no objections to you attempting this. I will gladly assist with any reasonable requests you might have.

On second thought, this may not be such a reasonable request after all since, by 'WikiProject,' I mean the kind that exists on Wikipedia, my main wiki, as described here; setting something like that up here on Shifti would probably entail a ton of work, especially in terms of the need to copy resources over and otherwise set up the necessary infrastructure. Maybe I should just set up a more informal staging area for the story I mentioned…oh, well.

Well... We don't have to directly copy Wikipedia on this front. As is, I wouldn't consider the use you've proposed as a classical 'WikiProject' - in fact, some of us started something similar a while back with the Pig and Whistle setting. And the setting FreeRIDERs is also quite similar, with several pages documenting the setting and numerous authors contributing.
So, basically, if you need some infrastructure help, ask - the rest is already done by the community here.
