- "Now, when you have to explain all of your motives to somebody, you realize that you really shouldn’t bother. Because if your motives are not visible to them when you don’t intend to hide your motives, then an explanation of your motives are not very likely to do very much to them, because their level of awareness of you already doesn’t exist. Do you see?"
- L Ron Hubbard From: Scientology Definitions II - 6 December, 1966 - (quote courtesy of Jonathan Burke)
There are two pages that give extensive information about the scope and purpose of the Scientolipedia project.
Most of the above information was created prior to actually launching the site. Now that the site has been up and running for a while and performing as predicted, see "Stats" section in sidebar, it should be very clear that the concept is not only workable but is achieving it goals and purposes.
Normally a Corporate, Not-For-Profit or Governmental project of this scope would be budgeted for hundreds of thousands of dollars to develop, launch and maintain.
We've launched on a shoestring and need to develop financing. In order to achieve its potential, the project needs a steady stream and growth in funding.
Your financial support is appreciated. It's a very big project requiring significant time and money to achieve the goals and purposes. Please take a few minutes to watchEvery member of a ship's company has two general types of activities, one of these is as a member of watches, wherein he handles his duties of steering, lookout, engines, etc., including emergency drills. (FO 1109) the videos below for an overview of the Scope of this project. It really isn't 'just another website'
legal & continuity planning
Scientolipedia.org was taken down for a short period of time in 2015 by the CoS and although the site was restored and made secure against future attacks, individuals involved with the site may yet come under personal legal attack.
The interruption of service is a reminder of the need to plan for the continuity of the site's existence in spite of any and all attacks against it. It's also prudent to set up legal and organizational mechanisms to ensure that continuity.
In addition to a legal defense "war chest", things like incorporating to remove individuals from private ownership of the site are needed.

The long-term growth and development of this website/project requires considerable technical expertise. Many of the items needed for full development of the software the site uses will require the services of professional software developers. Things like a new "Skin", full implementation of database search capabilities, multi-language support, and a number of 'graphical user interface' (GUI) enhancements - are a few example areas.
We're setting an immediate goal of $5000 for the beginning funding of these items.
|Website Expasion||Funding||Balance Needed|
|Legal, Upgrades, New Apps||$5,000||$4,500|
The website hosting, domain fees and web services are being paid on a month-to-month basis.
This is a risky way to maintain an operation and doesn't allow for continuity or emergencies.
