Re: [sig] Wiki issues (was: Re: re: re: re: cunnan, an SCA wiki)
- I'm a big fan of providing as much information as possible. That's why I like the idea that we have a hard copy newsletter, a discussion group, web pages with substance, and web pages with links. I have no problem with adding one or more wiki's to the mix.
Do I trust a wiki? Nope, not in your life. Do I think a wiki could be helpful? Sure, and that's enough for me.
So, I'm offering to include a link to a SIG-related wiki (or wikis) off of the main SIG page (http://slavic.freeservers.com) but I don't see it as a replacement for the knowledge pages. In other words, I'd like to see both.
This doesn't have to be the final word on the discussion, but I did want to clarify that I'm not going to choose one over the other. We can have both.

I'd volunteer for one of the editor jobs cause I can do the technical
labor but I don't know enough to do the academic labor.

At least, the last time I did an update, I saved everything, but that
was about 2 years ago. So, having a backup isn't really an issue, at
least in this particular case. And the Russian Knowledge Page isn't
located on the Discussion Group's Yahoo account, so that is a separate

Knowledge Pages, although it might be an issue for other Pages. I am
willing to continue the web-authoring side of things, but I can't keep
up with the editor side of things, at least, not all by myself, which
is the real issue. We have the webspace, we have someone to stick
things up on the web, but we don't have enough people to edit/moderate
(or whatever you wish to call it) the content.
