I'm the founder and former owner of WikiIslam.*

Welcome to WikiIslam! The site belongs to all the editors who have contributed to the site and worked hard to create high-quality content.

Anyone can have an impact on this site even if its someone with just an IP address, for example an IP address once made some edits on WikiIslam which made us realize that we need to fix our site-wide referencing system. We made changes after we saw those edits. These changes resulted in an update to the Citing template that is used on almost every page of the site.**

If you have any suggestions for what can be done to make WikiIslam better or have feedback for a particular page, please let us know on the Forum page. If you want to become an editor, please create an account . Thank you!**

The rest of this page is just a collections of links for me.

*WikiIslam is now managed by the Ex-Muslims of North America

**To prevent vandalism, the site now requires aspiring editors to request an account.

To do

  • check:
  • deletion policy: MediaWiki:Confirmdeletetext
  • syntax highlight
  • community guidelines
  • Hire:
    • Primary task: Community building. Create new ways of attracting editors and building an active self-sustaining community with a positive constructive vibe where rational ideas reign. Without this this website cannot survive, evolve and grow. Increase high-quality editing activity. You can also explore implementing fund raising to finance editors (if that is what is needed for increasing editing activity)
    • Other tasks:
      • Also recruit volunteer editors for other languages. Coordinate with sub-domain administrations for community building.
      • Make it easy for translators to do translations
      • Web usability: Make it easier to browse the website and get the information people are looking for. This can include suggestions for changing the basic layout of the side (top, left, bottom areas) but this is not the only thing that may be needed.
    • Prior experience in website community growth, or leadership positions in other scenarios and education/experience in Web design may help

To do: 2

    • [last editor] made an edit on [date]
  • Anti-spam: Disable new pages with links, for new users
  • Test WikEd [17]

  • For About/FAQ/mission page: (talking to prospective editors) In addition to civilians, our audience is lawmakers, authors, movie producers, people in administration
  • Test blog plugin/rss feed (semantic MW)
  • Guide on how to use this site: Hints while debating with muslims, possible objections from them, and what to say, strategies
  • IDebater: Accessible through site wide link "Test your faith in Islam"
  • Investigate: Ability to see/browse Islamic texts (quran, hadith) from within the site (a popup) and insert them where needed. Could write some kind of script to get texts from external sites so we dont have to have copies

Lower Priority

  • How to use this site - shortcut at bottom of each page? Next to About link (common arguments against the site and responses, and how to quote us or link to us)
  • Quran translations: Copy translations for Fair use: Islam awakened, or see: Quran - 8 translations in a Word document
  • A system for WI's own hadith and Quran page references for the hadith and verses we use, to keep the visitor on the site. Current templates could be updated for these hadiths and verses. These pages could be sub-sections within a page or have their own page. They would also have links to relevant articles.
  • For Quotes: Investigate using different colors for different types of contents, e.g. Quran (green), hadith (blue), News sources (brown), Articles (light yellow), grey and light pink, light orange could also be used.

Random quotes stuff

  • Random verse, hadith and fatwa display box
