Answering an other thread this just came to my mind. I know, there already is a lot about sumo in the wikipedia, but a wiki dedicated only to sumo would be even better, i think.
I don't want to start it all on my own, because i'm no coder, so i don't have the skills to transpose my ideas.
Editing wikipedia can be a pita. For someone who hasn't seen code before, it is almost impossible, especially when it comes to tables, etc..
But what if the main work is done by clever code in the background? A script that parses the sumodb (permission provided) once a day (i.e. 18:15 JST on basho days and on banzuke day) and automatically fills tables with basho results, age, picture, career record, etc.. If that works - and i know it can - the whole wiki could be filled with all rikishi that ever existed in mere minutes. That code could also preset the whole document with paragraphs for background information, etc.. So editing would only require the ability to type plain text, or maybe a setting a hyperlink once in a while.
This can not be done with wikipedia, because the coder would have to adapt the code to every single, already existing entry. And i don't think that the terms and conditions would allow the use of such massive scripts. With our own wiki, we would be the ones to write the rules and we could start from scratch.
And think about statistics! Loads of articles, filled with tons of beautiful statistics without fighting the sumodb-query...*drool*
So...what do you reckon?
