I would have to say that everyone should have rw access, but the mod team has to proofread it first and then approve it. But other than that, sounds good!...

    I also prefer sauromonts sugestion about everyone having r,w access actualy.. but as for the vetting by moderators.. i dunno that does'nt seem to fit very well with the concept of a wiki which is why I consider a minimum post limmit before you automaticaly get rw ont he wiki. after an initial surge of tutorials it will calm down and become more like one or two per day which will mean that any bad posts are likly to be detected very quickly.. this i think is one reason that people dont target wikis in general.. even though its totaly open its not worth targeting because its so well moderated.

    I think it's better that users can ask for rw permisions first after their 128th post (or 100th, if you're base 10 ) - other wise I think it'll be many 0 editors. Plus that if you ask for rw you probably intend to edit/add something to the wiki, it might be a bit more "I want to participate (in the wiki)" than "ok, I got rw in the wiki, must I do something now?".

    btw, I've seen some wikis (don't recall what wiki, but they had some page with a long list of banned users,ips, and lines like "reverted page X, it's that moron again..." ) where they have problems with (ab)users, so abuse exists, but iirc most of the abuse was on political pages - so that might not be a problem for us - as we got pretty well brainwased members here

    I just made my first post on wikipedia.org.. and i have to say that I am impressed with how my topic was developed, within hours of me posting a single basic fact it became bigger as annother person added other single facts and refined what i had allready said. here is what I started:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tennents

    here is the history of the document so far:


    http://en.wikipedia.org/w/wiki.phtml...&oldid=4454285

    If you want to see how it works search the wikipedia for some fact or other untill you find one that does not allready exist and create one yourself.. just a sinlge basic fact should do to start it off.. i reccomend you bookmark it and check back regularly to see how it develops (if at all)

    The gentoo forums have a wiki now, http://gentoo-wiki.com I'm not sure how long they've had it but I really like the looks of it. I installed media wiki last night on my server and am now getting around to messing around with it. http://dillinger.homelinux.org/Wiki/index.php/Main_Page is where its residing, I'll update back as I figure stuff out and come across anything cool or that might be useful for this forum.

    stupid question, but would all of the existing tutorials be transferred to the wiki?

    It's far from a stupid question, certainly (either by their authors or, us/we who want to contribute/help to make good things better)

    I guess so.. but the wiki would lay them open to "peer review" which is a good thing:)

    speaking of the tutorials, how many posts do you need to post/reply to a thread in the "tutorials" forum?
