WikiLou.com - Wiki style guide to St. Louis, Missouri information
"The Free Database about the St. Louis Area that anyone can edit!"
Excerpted from the website:
- "The main purpose of WikiLou is to provide information. The information here can be about anything to do with the St. Louis area. Everyone knows something about the area, and if everyone puts what they know on WikiLou, we will have the most comprehensive collaborative database of knowledge about St. Louis that has ever been compiled. Don't be afraid to make a page for the corner market, your street, even your own house. Nothing is too small to be recorded here.
- WikiLou is a place for everyone in St. Louis to get themselves out there. Any charities, businesses, bands, or anyone else that would benefit from having a website but can't afford the cost can have their space on WikiLou. Even if they can afford their own website, having a page here will get more people seeing their info. So spread the word, particularly to those who need a web presence and can't afford it.
- Since anyone can edit this site at anytime, most people are apprehensive about spending much effort on a page that could be vandalized. We call this "WikiWorry". WikiWorry is curable, don't be afraid. If something does get vandalized, it will be fixed (usually within a few minutes) by another editor. Since we're all equal here, the same power given to someone to vandalize a page is also given to you to unvandalize it. The basic idea here is that there are far more good people in the world than there are bad ones, and this is certainly true for the St. Louis area."
