I'm looking for a place like wikipedia, with something kind of like the citation templates, namely {{cite web}}. I don't like the wikipedia's editorial policies, or their administration -- I'm finding it increasingly difficult to cooperate with them.

I'm just wanting a place to put up my research and internal citations where other people can find it and continue to work on it.

It requires a little initial work of your own, but you can always start your own Mediawiki on your own server under your own conditions.

Wikia allows you to create your own wiki. It runs MediaWiki, the same software wikipedia uses. One of the founders was Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia.

As far as a webapp goes, I don't think you can get any closer to wikipedia than that. As deceze said, you also have the option of hosting it yourself. Either option would also require you to recruit other people to contribute; I don't know how big of a community you're aiming for.

If you're looking for a place for research, you really have a different goal than Wikipedia. No Original Research is one of their basic policies. You can't really cooperate on the same site when you're trying to do different things.

I'm not fond of the politics of Wikipedia? Why should I expect anything different on Wikia? Here is the content that I was trying to submit.. Apparently, Wikipedia doesn't welcome pages that negative. They assume that a passionate tax scamer is negative: I suppose that's because the US sued him. Either way, they won't welcome the contribution because I'm unable to find anything objectively "nice" to say. –  Evan Carroll Dec 20 '10 at 5:26
    
@EvanCarroll In that case, you could try to create your own wiki using the MediaWiki software (or some other personal wiki software). en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Personal_wiki –  Anderson Green Nov 26 '12 at 18:16
