Comparison of Acawiki to Similar projects

Hi, I am sort of new to Acawiki. I'm reading for my general exams and uploading a bunch of summaries right now. I found acawiki through User:Benjamin_Mako_Hill. But it seems like this community might be in potential competition with the others. Does anyone know which of them are relatively active and which others might have content we can merge in?

Thanks for uploading summaries! It'd be great to add an indicator of vitality to each similar project. I don't know of any that are general and collaborative (thus very similar to AcaWiki) and active. Brevy is very, very similar, but was only very briefly active.

Hi Mike and Nate! I'm less interested in sources of data and more interested in more active projects where we could merge the data here! I'm still hoping that something else will come along (maybe something built on Wikidata?) that fits the bill. I think the summaries, rather than the metadata, are almost all of the value here. I'm really sad that I don't think there's an appropriate place yet. I'm sure it will happen eventually although it's taken longer than I expected! —mako 03:55, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
Agree with every word. I hope it'll be built on Wikidata. I added Property:Wikidata some time ago as a tiny nod to that future. Mike Linksvayer (talk) 05:02, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
