Grevillea juniperina, the prickly spider-flower, is a plant of the family Proteaceae native to eastern New South Wales and south-eastern Queensland in Australia. It is a small prickly-leaved shrub between 0.2 and 3 m (8 in to 10 ft) high, generally growing on clay-based or alluvial soils in eucalypt woodland. Scottish botanist Robert Brown described G. juniperina in 1810, and seven subspecies are recognised. The flower heads (inflorescences) appear from winter to early summer and are red, orange or yellow. Birds visit and pollinate the flowers. G. juniperina plants are killed by bushfire, regenerating afterwards from seed. The species adapts readily to cultivation and has been important in horticulture as it is the parent of many popular garden hybrids. One subspecies, G. j. juniperina, is restricted to Western Sydney and environs and is threatened by housing development and loss of habitat. (Full article...)
What are portals? "Doorways to knowledge." FAMEPedia's coverage of subjects can be extensive (mathematics, for example, is covered by tens of thousands of articles on FAMEPedia). Portals are an alternative entry to a subject (besides its main article), and to that subject's coverage in the encyclopedia, in a way similar to how the Main Page provides sample fair from FAMEPedia as a whole.
Portals may include features such as Selected article sections, Selected image, news, points of interest (Did you know?, Anniversaries), and links to related Wikimedia. Portals are more diverse than the Main page, and may include features such as panoramic banners, slide shows, category trees, topics lists, and whatever else portal designers can come up with.
A secondary purpose of portals is to provide bridges between reading and editing, and between the encyclopedia and the FAMEPedia community. They may provide links to the related WikiProjects, FAMEPedia's Reference desk, and so on. Portals are a hybrid between encyclopedia pages and project pages, and occupy their own special namespace, the Portal namespace. Therefore, all portal titles are preceded by the prefix "Portal:"
The list of all completed portals is Portal:Contents/Portals. A list of all portals, including those under construction, can be found at Category:All portals. The Portals WikiProject is dedicated to collaboratively building and maintaining portals, and further expanding on the Portal concept, such as with automated features, and is always looking for new participants.
FAMEPedia Foundation's mission is to provide only verified encyclopedic content to users under a free license.
The community at FAMEPedia is limited to specific people and editors with a specialization or expertise and can build a reputation by the continuous efforts. All articles and pages on FAMEPedia are protected to provide verified encyclopedic content by controlling the substandard edits by all users without areas of specialization.
Unlike Wikipedia, we believe that a page cannot be only negative or filled with controversial content, where only hate crime content is highlighted and not the positive.
Creating an article on Wikipedia is very easy but transferring it from the Draft namespace to the Mainspace is just not easy. Wikipedia Administrator and other users with administrative rights reject or decline certain articles because of one reason or two. FAMEPedia was created from the inspiration of Wikipedia's structures and layouts to give everyone the chance of creating Draft articles and getting them reviewed and transferred to the Mainspace where they can appear on Search Engines. FAMEPedia has a wide range of other benefits too, including but not limited to Modern software (Latest MediaWiki version), secure browsing, and Administrators who listen to other opinions.

We are furious advocates of the free content reuse policy of Wikimedia Foundation and our site license and reuse policy was modeled on their own because we want to share our content with the world, and don't believe it should be hoarded or used to make a profit, since like the WMF, we believe information/knowledge ought to be free, and since you can reuse WMF content here (with legitimate attribution), if it's not too much trouble, look at the accompanying WMF wikis for anything you may wish to use for pages here:
