Beyond Wikipedia: Archiplanet

Some research this morning took me to Archiplanet, a wiki dedicated to "the facts, photos, and drawings here on your favorite structures of all kinds, anywhere, from your own cottage to the latest skyscraper to your nation's capitol." It served as a good reminder that there are many other wikis beyond Wikipedia, and your marketing campaigns will be more successful if you use the correct ones.

Wikipedia is very firm about what Wikipedia is and what it is not. The content criteria are strictly enforced by the members/editors. Ignoring these rules can get your pages deleted, and accounts banned.

According to their homepage, "Archiplanet is a community-constructed collection for all the buildings, building users, and building creators on planet Earth." It is sponsored by, one of the leading online architectural magazines. For many building product manufacturers, this will make it a better tool than Wikipedia.
