On Wikipedia, the main thing is information. But on Monalica, definitions can include personel opinions beside being informative. This makes Monalica more real with personal experiences.
From their site;
“Monalica is a Social Encyclopedia Project that is made of subjective and informative definitions by users. Monalica allows it’s users to make definitions about any subject, which can be promoted by user votes. Monalica is where user-generated content meets encyclopedia in a neat, accessible and gradable concept, while offering an entertaining, fun and interactive encyclopedia experience. Global or indigenous, Monalica aims to constitute a systematic source of information about limitless notions and things.”
There is a powerful community behind the encyclopedia. Users can post anything on the board, but users can not reply each others definitions with definitions. Every definitons have to be meaningful by itself. In spite of this, they can send direct messages.
Also there’s a part called “topic requests” which help users to make definitions under empty topic links given in previous definitions.
