NEW SITE FEATURE: Wiki
« on: October 30, 2005, 02:45:03 AM »

I still don't know exactly how we're going to use this, but feel free to play around with it in the meantime.

We discussed the possibility of doing group collaboration on reviews using the wiki.

Maybe there's someone with some wiki experience who can clue us in to some of the stuff we might consider?

Software is the Open Source Media Wiki.

This could be fun, and useful ....

How about adding it to the top MenuBar ?

As with the bug tracker is this going to be open access to all registered members? If so can the site membership be integrated into the Media Wiki user database so that we only have to login once ?

If you work out how to do this automatically I will be really interested how you did it ....

There's a typo in This will be fun, and useful ;)

Yeah, both should be added to the top menubar, and in a new color for the first two months.

Might be possible, but rather hard to code I guess...

Err, careful what you say there  :D

Users could use the Sandbox now to be found on http://www.donationc.../index.php/Main_Page to play around.

I added a link to the URL for the wiki syntax, it's rather newbie-friendly.

@mouser: Please get some info about spam-protection. It might only take a few days until bots discover the wiki and start to spam it with Viagra and pr0n URLs, we need to be ready...
