Is that too hard? I want to see all sorts of stuff different on each page. Unique formatting on each page will allow for memory formation to occur more quickly and this will generate a generation of kids that know very many bits of information.

Not completely user controlled content, but most of the articles are from wikipedia but incorporated into the site's format. [rcarty, Apr 10 2010]

       I think this would be a disastrophe. When I look at Wikipedia, I can find what I need more quickly because the pages have a reasonably uniform content. If I want every topic to appear in a different format, the rest of the Web is out there waiting for me.

       even considering that there are some topics best served by an alternate format, what [MB] said.

       there are lots of wiki-like sites that follow different formats. i haven't stumbled across a good one yet but yours could be the first. Feel free! Not much in the way of an invention here.

       I think the invention is in the "user controlled format". However, I still dinnae like it.

       I like what the EoL is doing [link]. Some of the entries load wikipedia articles which takes the content out of the wikipedia format.
