Why not call it MSN or QQ? (just kidding..).
Combiend efforts are already in place in local communities.

Most of the reasons why it failed was because... we failed to gather
contributions. Everything non-mediawiki has a high barrier of entry.

Communties that have a wiki (that works):
Please, pleeeeaaaase, take a look! ;-)

I disagree, having exeprienced it many times in many places, every
potential contributor already knows and contributes at least a bit to
Wikipedia (and its syntax), thus a Medawiki-based place is an
excellent way to go. It works. Period. Unless you don't seed work and
let it die. My seed is here: a small cleaning and features. Please
