Interesting concept I'll need to check this. Infortunatly, most of the "read more" links won't work.
I like this thread... and the template as well.
I tried to subscribe a couple of days ago but I'm still waiting for the reply.

By safe I mean that the community should have absolute control with no risk of external interference.
To host on the site is probably a bad idea but the tools it offer are really interesting and it's definitely worth a try.
Hi there, yes thanks for your interest. We open for testing tomorrow, I've got your email address so I will open an account for you.
Just to be clear, my site is not a free for all. We have different user-levels with the starter one being just for fans. Members must actively request to be upgraded to become a world-builder and author, and these requests are moderated. We have a maximum number of world-builders for any world. Furthermore, certain types of objects and events are restricted to certain levels of world-builder. In essence a new world-builder would work their way up through the ranks as they get used to the system and get involved in the community.
This design is based on the copious examples of wikia/mediawiki attempts at collaborative-worldbuilding being hijacked by randoms.
Hope that lays to rest some worries about the new system. Our current testing system only caters for one world, and to be clear it is only for testing at this stage. With positive feedback the project can continue.
