Idea: Worldbuilding Site
I would like to propose a Worldbuilding Q&A site. This site would be similar to Worldbuilding SE and would be ideal for anyone creating a world, including: writers, game designers, and anyone else looking to fact-check the plausibility of their creations.
The website is primarily geared around:
- Checking to see if a given scenario is realistic/plausible
- Asking what would realistically happen in a given scientific scenario (based on supplied/known/theoretical science, not pure speculation).
- Asking how a desired effect/scenario can be achieved scientifically, with a given level of technology/biology
I for one used Worldbuilding extensively in the days before 'the incident', and I would love to have an alternative where I can pose my ideas and see if they are realistic before I include them in my writings.
Note: Worldbuilding by its nature blurs two lines: one is between what belongs on worldbuilding and what belongs on writing. The other is between questions that help others and questions which apply only to you. If we create this site, special attention should be given to the guidelines section in these two areas.
Since I'm no longer on SE, I don't have a group, but I'm sure others would be interested in this, specifically creative writers, game designers, and people interested in scientific application to theoretical scenarios.
How's the interest for a Worldbuilding site?
