As you may know, my site is practically a mirror of wikipedia but with my own twists and turns and structure. I would like to offer something Wikipedia does not offer. Any ideas?

I don't know how practical this would be but how about some kind of forum where people could ask questions of the author of an article?

Yea... my articles come from many different places, sometimes finding the original author isn't easy.

Say for example, I get my article from Wikipedia and Wikipedia got it from Geography.com and geography.com got it from here... and they got it from there... as long as they all follow the guidelines for sharing articles, the original author doesn't need to be known to each site as long as following the path eventually leads to that person. I think this suggestion could be useful to the users... but imagine the work involved. Not to mention, each article could come from 10 or more sources... then I would need a forum or contact information for each author. I wish I could provide something like this, but as a one man team, it would be too hard. If I had a team of volunteers, it would be more realistic.

I was thinking... although still time consuming... to create study questions and projects for each article, kind of like the concept of a text book... to help the reader understand the article more fully with hands on or cognitive learning.
