Because that would be awesome.

(I spent a while googling it came up with zilch...is there anything paleo out there with embedded hyperlinking?)

FYI, this wiki creator posted about the site @ Mark's Daily Apple in February last year: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/thread22997.html

This site looks like a placeholder, not an actual wiki that can be fleshed out.

Why not just start fleshing out paleowiki.org. Seems to me that it's open for anyone to create an account and edit it. Jmadigan from MDA forums owns it: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/thread22997.html

It's no community driven. I'm thinking more FAQ based. You could go there and learn about what cortisol is or omega-3's or a variety of other things that we generally deal with. More a central place to find answers to the common things and give jumping off points to places to get more details or more specific questions. Not at all trying to take away from this site.

Some of my answer was in response to comments from Girl Gone Primal, JP, and Gary Wu, since Kamal didn't mention anything about that in the question.

Ha, nice rant! Yeah, it would have to be regulated so that only approved editors could make changes. There probably wouldn't be enough "fact-checker" users to emulate wikipedia's model, and accuracy of information would be of utmost concern. Paleowiki.com is taken, and I'm not sure if the owner is going to develop the site or not.

Ah, I see. A friend of mine did a similar type of page for Emergency Medicine residents, for number needed to treat per disease classification. Personally, I shy away from that type of structure. The reason is that there are so many topics, and they don't have singular links much of the time. I'll take a look later on this week and get a better grasp of what's there.

Our wiki is more structured than usual so that we can do things like showing that there are N treatments for X, supporting a hierarchy of content pages, etc. You can add brand new pages, and you can create links from any page to any other page within FoundHealth. For example, if you want to add a link to the Paleo diet page from the Type 2 Diabetes page, you can. We are still working on polishing up the UI, so we'd love to hear any feedback that you might have!

Is it going to have wiki-type links and stuff? It seems like a nice base, but a couple things make it seem different than a typical collaberative site: one is the big box in the left hand corner, and the other is that the web design makes it more reminiscent of a company. That might just be my bias though!

Yeah, some people have sometime to lose. Instead of arguing with decency, intelligence and facts, they prefer to use propaganda... It sucks cause we can't discuss anymore. Food religion just suck.

I suspect this site is the closest thing to a wiki thus far...

I also suspect that if a paleo wiki was created, we'd be ripped apart by vegan activists, a la what's happening to Denise Minger's critique of the China Study... Shameful.

It's too bad more users don't use the search function here on PH. There is a lot of good historic Q&A info here already. I spent my first month here using the search function before even asking my first question.

Someone set one up here: http://www.paleowiki.org

It's still blank, but that's a great domain and it would be terrific if we decided to make it THE paleo wiki. It would be fleshed out in no time.

I love the idea of having a wiki. A body of evolving, up-to-date knowledge.

Hi, I'm the CTO of FoundHealth, a wiki-based site dedicated to providing the most comprehensive set of health treatments and solutions to people's health challenges even if the solutions fall outside conventional medical thinking. As Paleo practitioners, I think we all know first-hand what it means to blindly follow conventional medical thinking.

The core article pages on FoundHealth are wiki-based, and we have recently started coverage of the Paleo diet at http://www.foundhealth.com/paleo-diet/overview. Please check it out, and let me know what you think. I'm fully invested in spreading knowledge and awareness around the benefits of the Paleo diet, and the wiki should be a great tool to help us toward that cause.

Regarding the concern that "we'd be ripped apart by vegan activists", our goal is to have intelligent discussions backed by sound scientific data. I'm hopeful that we can have civil discourses on the site, but we will cross that bridge when we get there.

In case anyone wonders whether or not I'm Paleo myself, I'm also the founder of Paleo for Life. :)

Weird timing, I'm actually playing around with a way of putting all this information in a better system / format. Still playing around with formatting and how to present the data, but you can see my latest idea at www.paleocollective.com

Kamal,

Brilliant! Let's put out the real Paleo truth loud and proud. As for vegan activists trying to 'rip us apart'... ha! Let them try. Keeps us on our toes anyway, no?

Anyway would we have the ability to have only certain people gain editing rights to the page info? Like... can an administrator 'approve' editors? If so, we could better control the info that goes into it. If not, then we will always be battling people editing/erasing/adding things.

If you really think about how cool it would be to have a Paleo Wiki, it gets pretty exciting. An organized site of all Paleo info. A single place we can direct people to.

Love it.
