Wikipedia sucks but Everipedia doesn't - it pays you!

Post by Paul Bedson » Fri Jul 20, 2018 3:14 pm

Hello, I'm here to bring you the Good News that Everipedia's https://iq.everipedia.org/ (or https://iqnetwork.io) blockchain encyclopedia went live for creating pages this week.

This means that you can create articles that can't be blocked in China or Turkey, etc.

Content only needs to be neutral and source content. There's no notabilty guidelines and no 28 policies, 35 sub-policies and 5 pillars to obey like Wikipedia.

Best of all, Everipedia's CIO is Jimmy Wales nemesis and Wikipedia's co-founder, Larry Sanger! The guy who built Wikipedia in the first place!

Actually, best of all is that you can get paid for editing Everipedia as soon as the rewards module is implements, which should be within weeks. Early editors will benefit from a higher share of a 5% annual IQ mint rate than those who join up late. Get ready for the revolution Everione, because it's here :

Yes, I approved this post. Never heard of Everipedia before this thread.


Possibly it sucks?
Still "Globally Banned" on Wikipedia for the high crime of journalism.

"Almost every page on the site is copied verbatim from Wikipedia — although not updated as frequently as Wikipedia — and the trickle of entries posted by Everipedia users relate almost exclusively to sensational topics including YouTube trolls, the “meme war of 2017” and the hip hop producer who tattooed an image of Anne Frank onto his face." link

Every flood has to start with a trickle. Everipedia is growing to be a bit more than a few rappers and memes. We've got an astronaut doing science stuff, I'm updating archaeology, stake your territory while it's hot! https://everipedia.org/wiki/list-of-unique-content-on-everipedia-1/

Looking at some recent pages such as Vladimir Putin's umbrella and Mahbod Moghadam's zit (July 2016), I have to wonder: is this some kind of joke?

Did you read the one about Larry Sanger's left thumb?

Pages like that and Putin's umbrella, which I made, are examples of what life's like when there's no notability requirements. Yes, it can be a joke. If it's sourced and neutral, Everipedia will absorb joke-a-pedia happily along with all the rest. But think bigger - every product that every company makes can go on there and every company will want to pay editors for all that work eventually.

I work on a variety of topics that you're welcome to check out

Everipedia has a Telegram channel where editors chat and post the latest content that anyone is welcome to join. I'm in there and pleased to help if anyone needs any information or assistance to get started on a new article about anything to try the water. We don't bite and the atmosphere is quite pleasant! :)

Drmies will be delighted! (other topic)
Why not, let's give it a change. I only don't know if it works out at the long run, but we will see.
I think the further will be many of this kind of initiatives, not only one, because I think the wiki mouvement will fragment in all kind of smaller wiki's. But what is the purpose, Paul, to create only a English version or does Everpedia have a international ambition?

The Wikipedians have had their excuses for why Everipedia is no threat to them lined up and ready for a while now. They're bunk, but hey, Wikipedians are nothing if not highly capable of grand self delusions.

Maybe it isn't a threat to them. Maybe their wildest dreams will come true and it will be a place they can send all the unwanted pages and editors relating to 99.99999% of the world's companies and products, because, y'know, they're above writing about that sort of thing. Not knowledge, apparently.

But their innate nature makes it a certainty that the bigger Everipedia gets, the more time they will waste bitching about it. Which is a win for us.

Yes, very much so. You can create pages in all different languages on the same system with Everipedia. I created pages on 中国, इंडिया and 대한민국, which although micro-stubs, show purpose.

I ask you this because I prefer to write in Dutch. But I am sceptical, I have every reason to be, but maybe it's nice to transfer my work to Evripedia and maybe it is nice in wintertime to write there. Not for the payment, I am only writing as a hobby, but to pass time in winter. Not now, because now we have a extreem hot summer in The Netherlands and the rest of Europe, I have the feeling I am back in Greece, and I think it is a wasting of time now to sit behind a computer.
But what is the propose, to form communities? And how do they want to keep wikifools and wikishit out of the door? Is there a plan for? Because otherwise the whole project will change in no time in a madhouse just like wikipedia is.
