A brief history of the origins of this site

This site was created by importing about 1000 Buddhism related articles from Wikipedia. About 100 of the imported articles were articles that User:Dorje108 had developed as a Wikipedia editor. (About 50 of those articles were small articles on the mental factors.

The reason for starting this new site was that we reached an impasse on Wikipedia--we had different views from other Wikipedia editors on how these articles should be developed and we were unable to reach a consensus.

So we decided to set up a new site so that we can develop these articles as we think best.
