We had a wiki, [...] but we need a server to host it
Kidd, M0E, Larry, and all:
I have no idea how you all have the backend stuff set up, but if there's enough bandwidth to host the how-to videos discussed over in another thread, why couldn't the wiki go on the forum's server? I can't imagine a wiki making that much of a load.
and a good policy of who can edit it (to prevent spam), and how it should be organized.
I'd suggest a simple procedure:
1. Qualified Wiki Participant:
- To be able to add to or modify the wiki, you'd have to be a forum member with a certain number of posts first, say when you become a "vectorite" at 100.
- After attaining that level, you request to be a wiki participant, if you want.
- Do the obvious policing, and editing, deleting, etc.
- They approve (or disapprove) vectorites who request to be participants - or remove wiki posters who cross "some" line.
Perhaps the approval could be by simple majority vote - always tending toward permissiveness. It would be rare to disapprove, and rarer still to eject someone, but at least there'd be a formal mechanism to do so.
I remember writing a couple of articles for it, but when it disappeared, we lost them all (yeah, no backups
Could we use google docs to start the rebuilding of the wiki? ... I'm all for this, and would help out.
What do you think?
