Improvements / Developments of the project
There is much in store for Vedabase.com in the future. The plans for Vedabase.com’s development are split into five stages. In order to reach each stage, certain funds are required.
Stage 1 :: Site's new engine (80% completed)
Vedabase.com's new engine is the technological foundation of the project. All new features will depend upon it.
This stage includes the introduction of user accounts, which will enable users to make personal bookmarks and notes. It will also feature an online editor and a new design which will make the site easier to use both for desktop and mobile device users. It will allow us to make better search engine optimization, clearer navigation, and keyboard shortcuts, as well as a basic search. It will help us to synchronize between languages on the paragraph level, necessary for future stages.
Stage 2 :: Categorization by community (30% completed)
Any user can propose topic categories for any text from the library. These suggestions will then go through a moderation queue to ensure they were assigned to the correct category. As topic categorization will be synchronized throughout all available languages, users will be able to categorize in their native language and at that time all relevant texts from other languages will be assigned to the category too.
The result of such categorization will be a library that is categorized not only by words, but by topics. This will enable users to search using topic/category as a filter.
Stage 3 :: Advanced Instant Search
Stage 3 will increase the power of Vedabase.com’s search. Users will now be able to use an instant search with support for misspellings. Searches can be filtered by type of content and by book, and results can be narrowed by topic or category, by author of the text, by date, etc...
Stage 4 :: Encyclopedia
Cost: No cost estimate yet
Stage 4 will feature an encyclopedia strictly based on the teachings of Srila Prabhupada. This encyclopedia will provide summarized descriptions of terms found in the Vedic scriptures, worded in language easy to understand for those unfamiliar with the terms. The encyclopedia will include different types of content, including concepts, places, and persons. The encyclopedia will be interlinked with the library to facilitate easy access to the explanations of terms.
Stage 5 :: Multimedia
In this stage audio recordings, videos, and photo galleries will be added to Vedabase.com’s library and linked with related texts.
