This site was created by importing about 1200 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. We are grateful to our former collaborators at Wikipedia. In a sense, this project is part of a larger collaboration with many other people who are trying to understand and explain these topics.
