Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

After years as a Wikimedia volunteer, thinking about solutions to the projects interact with each other, I present a new model can think the Wiki, causing a decrease of Wikipediacentrism,

Also present a new Wiki for decrease problems on Wikipedia. This wiki is for public utility, which is highly demanded by readers of Wikipedia, then there are many edits to include this information, which does not always fit into an encyclopedia. To do this we would have another Wiki that stores this information, relieving the Wikipedia with this information.

The model also changes the vision on Wikipedia, pointing out that she is not unique in the Wikimedia Movement, thus giving more light to other projects, and making it easier for the reader to move between projects and finding the content you want.

He also seeks a proposal less "ugly", possibly attracting new readers and potential editors, mainly the female audience, is a proposal that seeks an environment to inspire collaboration and creation.

The search system would also be modified, causing people to have the search carried out for all Wikimedia projects, not just to the project search, thus makes it easier for the reader find about what exactly they're looking for.

The Wikinews also suffered changes on your system, the search would be made by topics and timeline showing the latest news on that subject.

With this we would have a better link between the projects, greater ease for readers, and possibly a greater contribution and a reduction in the gap between genders.
