Experimental: TWCT Wiki
« on: January 15, 2011, 03:51:47 AM »
I have been considering adding a wiki to the site for some time because I feel that it would be much easier for users to contribute content and update information.  This is purely experimental at this point and time. I know several users here are avid wikipedia users and I would be thrilled if they were interested in providing assistance with creating and managing the wiki.

While of course the wiki is open for everyone I would like to select a few dedicated members to help manage the effort. Those members would become part of the Content Editor Staff. Please post if you are interested in this effort. I am also looking for feedback on this idea and other thoughts/concerns. As mentioned before this is experimental and its continuation will be based on feedback and participation.

Thanks!

I tried that a few years ago. It failed. No one really got it. Of course, I didn't allow people to edit pages, but still.

As Matt mentioned, TWCC did a wiki format and I was lost when trying to navigate it. So I'm not for this. :no:

Its not replacing anything. The site would remain as is. Its just a trial though

Martins form of a wiki is just like Wikipedia and will be a sub directory from the main website thats all ;)

If it's going to be an addition to the site and it'll allow user edits, I say give it a shot. If it works, great. If not, oh well.
