Open Source. Supported by large community. Especially useful with semantic-mediawiki

I goes well beyond what you can do with just an encyclopedia. I allows for knowledge management at its best catering for a very large variety of use cases.

MediaWiki doesn't care what users think. They don't ask "How would you rate the article you read?" questions. I don't know if any Extensions can fix this or how easily...

Very good software to me. Very easy to self-host yet powerful!

it powers most wiki sites, but its UI / UX is stuck in 2002. We need an alternative to MediaWiki which can import all content from other wiki sites & rehost it onto a good 2018-styled MediaWiki.
