Fictopedia - The Fictional Encyclopedia
Fictopedia is an online encyclopedia (in wiki form) of user-generated fictional information. Users are free to add or edit any information they wish on any subject with only two limitations. First, the information must be fictional (we already have Wikipedia for the "real' world) and second, the information must be about original, and not existing fictions (so nothing copyrighted/in someone else's book/movie/show already). Fictopedia is about creating new fictions by letting users add, edit and cross-link each others' ideas. There is no limit on genre (sci fi
, present day fiction
!) and articles can range from serious
. The goal is to see what emerges. Think of it as a fan wiki for all the fictional universes
that don't exist yet. I've been working on this with several friends for a while, but I want to throw it open to as many people as possible now. Come create an account and contribute - see where others take your ideas!

In case you are wondering, I am publishing it under a creative commons commercial use/attribution license. The idea is that everything that goes in can be taken out and used by anyone, even for a commercial purpose (like say, a book). The only requirement is that there is attribution to the site (which in turn has a log of all users that have contributed to a given article).
