Meta-Wikipedia (http://meta.wikipedia.org/ (http://meta.wikipedia.org/)), sometimes called Metapedia, is a web site that is auxiliary to the Wikipedia project. It's edited as a wiki.

Meta-wikipedia was created in November 2001. It serves four distinct roles:

  1. Discussion and formulation of the wikipedia project itself, and in particular policy discussion
  2. A forum for personal essays that are not necessarily NPOV
  3. A place to organise and prepare content, to discuss interlanguage co-ordination issues.
  4. A place to coordinate the development process

Meta-Wikipedia currently serves as one of the major avenues of discussion for Wikipedians, the others being the mailing lists and the talk pages of individual articles.

Originally focused on the English language version of Wikipedia, Meta-Wikipedia has, since its upgrade to Wikipedia's custom phase III software, become a multilingual discussion forum used by all Wikipedia language communities.
