I feel there is only one website that deserves that honor: Zombo.comYou can do anything at Zombo
Anything at all...
The only limit is yourself.

Anyway... I think the idea of Wikipedia is good, but it seems like either they need to make drastic changes to stop deleting such massive amounts of otherwise reliable stuff — or a new website needs to be made that is more inclusive really, they can't go around claiming to be "the sum of all human knowledge" when it's not so much about notability but what the people around at the time think is notable, e.g. stuff that doesn't interest geeks gets wiped while there's hundreds of crap about simpsons/pokemon/transformers etc as people mentioned before, but it's just a question of how it would actually become successful in the face of Wikipedia's competition now, it's sad...
this whole idea of "scope" is very POV and seems to be to encourage content flow to Wikia so they can get money running ads on it (none of which goes back to Wikipedia or the Wikimedia Foundation...:
- actively feeding off the culture of deletionism on Wikipedia, eating itself from the inside
•• Wikipedia: Special Treatment for Wikia and some other Wikis
(first up on January 2010)
Wikia was founded by Jimmy Wales (founder of Wikipedia, and former chair, now member of Wikimedia's Board of Trustees), and Angela Beesley Starling (member of Wikimedia's Advisory Board
(first up on April 2007)
no managerial links. The only relationship between the two is that Jimmy Wales, is the founder of the Wikimedia Foundation, and is also one of the founders of Wikia, Inc.
Seems like WMF is lying, unless Angela Beesley joined WMF *after* founding Wikia?
Wikipedia should purge itself of all associations with Wikia and rewrite the book on whats acceptible, face up to the fact that it can be comprehensive when it can be downloaded onto a damn Ipad, as long as stuff is notable, sure, why not? Why dump it all to Wikia and plaster it with horrible ads and videos instead and far less standards, it's such a waste..
