Hi Chris,

it's a nice initiative and I definitely believe we need to document and
exchange more information between parties. Many of the goals you list with
the wiki project is things that Pirate Times is already striving to create.
We're working on getting it more organized but hopefully in future we will
be able to add some curators to our team as well. Another alternative would
be if you would like to curate content on Pirate Times to make it more

Pirate Times is the main resource for Pirate news and we have a vast
library of content that needs to be curated in order for people to find our
past articles/content easier. So far we have published 408 articles about
Pirates (+ 18 of those translated to Spanish and 18 to French)
totaling 369.480 words.

Happy to discuss more if you are willing to help Pirate Times surface some
of our older content again through curation in some way.

> Things I would hope to run within the project:
> * Improving and creating pages on notable Pirate Party officials and people
> of interest
> * Translating / translation requests of notable Pirate articles across
> different languages
> * Using country-specific Pirate articles (e.g. legal, technical) as temples
> in other country-specific articles to share expertise across borders
> I've not set up a Wiki project before, so I've created just a small project
> page to get started:
> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Pirate_Politics
> Like with all wiki projects, the idea is that you
> * Tag articles of interest
> * Rate them in terms of importance and quality
> * Get editing!
> The inter country and translation work would need appropriate tags.
> If interested people could add themselves to the member list, expand the
