Why no Catholic wiki?
#1
It seems that there are no active wikis about Catholicism from Catholic point of view. Of course, there are all the Catholic related articles on wikipedia, but they all have to be neutral in content. Eastern Orthodoxy has its own wiki from the Orthodox perspective; why can't there be a Catholic one from the Catholic perspective? The closest thing there is currently is Roman Catholicism Wiki, but it's not as active anymore.

No, New Advent is a closed encyclopedia, while a wiki is an open-source encylopedia.

In a certain sense, that makes it better than a wiki, because an open-source system may mean that someone with a heretical opinion could enter in a piece of false information.

Yeah, which is why Orthodox wiki has certain safety measures in place. A wiki can have articles about anything that in anyway concerns Catholicism, while an encylodpedia is mostly just defining ecclesiastical or theological things.
