Do you have lots of ideas for problems, or simply possess a talent for finding problems in the first place? We could really use your help creating content for Needpedia. Needpedia is a wiki, like Wikipedia, except it's designed to let people list solutions to problems. But you could also use it to just list problems.

How does one use Needpedia?

1: Search for the "area" post of your interest, all problems are listed by "area" so you've got to start there. If an area post you want doesn't exist yet you'll need to create it. It doesn't have to be complex (areas usually have a Wikipedia post somewhere you can link to), but we do ask that you keep everything you say in plain English. It's important to us that everyone can participate.

2: Click on a problem post that interests you, or create one.

3: Click on an idea post that interests you, or create one.

4: Share that post with people and groups on other sites to help it and Needpedia get attention. -and to be able to use Needpedia's tools to work on it.

There's also a proposal section in every area. For when we need to vote on things. It's still very basic though so for now we're focusing on problems and ideas.

Mission Statement

To build the wiki for all solutions, to any problem, with any thing.

Description

Needpedia's goal is to build the wiki for all possible solutions to any problem, with anything. ​But more than that, our goal is connect people over the best ideas on Earth. So we also built a social media site, both so that people can use the social media site to collaborate on ideas they like in the wiki section, and so that people can use the wiki section to improve and even govern/democractize the social media section.
