About[edit source | edit]
Wikiafripedia is a general purpose free-online encyclopedia project, that was founded in 2019 to attract poor writers, people who writes for benefits/profits (bloggers), to encourage/reward volunteer editors financially and to build a database of Scholars Original Research that's freely accessible to anyone in perpetuity.
Today the foundation is calling on writers/bloggers like you to contribute to Wikiafripedia for what it represent or for the following reasons:
A general purpose encyclopedia like Wikiafripedia covers topics from all field of studies. There's no restrictions to the knowledge that you can share here as long as you cite sources and not used promotional tone. Yet we accept Original Research not in the encyclopedia mainspace as they would not fit-well there based on Wikiafripedia:Core content policies.
Since Original Research is part of scholarly work and Wikiafripedia wants to make it freely accessible as a learning point to upcoming researchers in their respective field of studies. Scholars can Copywrite their research on Wikiafripedia into the Original Research or scholar namespaces within the project.
If you are a scholar, or if you still have your research project, thesis or dissertation work with you. You could Copywrite it on Wikiafripedia for the same terms. That way, you will be able to find-out if Wikiafripedia works for you, maybe before undertaking to write an article.
But writing an article is not the same as CopyWriting your research, and many people especially those in poor countries might hoard knowledge if there's no incentive to stimulate their interest in sharing them, as it can take a bit of ones time especially when following a certain sharing rules like the one set forth on Wikiafripedia in other to make the shared knowledge more clearer to readers. That's why Wikiafripedia has promised all authors of articles/Original Research a lifetime monetization of their contents by themselves, mostly through display advertising like the ones you've seen on this page. That's, the Wikiafrimedia Foundation only host these contents; the Wikiafripedia community which is made up of editors like you—developed and enforces Wikiafripedia:Policies and guidelines that helps guides the project to its vision.
Too good to be true[edit source | edit]
Well, It's not that simple!
Although, Wikiafripedia is founded on a simple, but powerful principle that Mandela has advanced:
'we can do more together than any of us can do alone.' And more so if within what we are doing there's a chance that it can also support our livelihood in someway while educating us.
At Wikiafripedia that means, we can achieve any goal we set for ourselves if editors are willing to do their best for their contents now, and when that happens Wikiafripedia will become as strong as the other encyclopedias you know which does not allowed you to earn revenue from your articles, which is crucial because, the stronger Wikiafripedia is, the more your revenue; and the key to makings that happened is in sharing your contents and keeping them updated.
