There is a lot of really good info in these forums, but as is the nature of conversation it’s scattered. I didn’t know you used to have one, but it was lost somehow over the years.
While a forum is great for exchanging info and getting to know each other, the wiki could complement it by making some of that info more available to general searches. If the comments (or talk pages) were turned off and replaced by links to relevant forums or topics here, it might help to bring in more discussion too.
Like me, you’re all probably quite busy with other stuff and wouldn’t like to take on a lot of work, but google’s wiki is really easy to use (so you could invite non-techies too as editors), you can attach it to a domain or sub-domain (e.g wiki.rewild.com) and it costs nothing except your soul.
It’s extremely easy to make a clean-looking site, users can embed videos, images easily, control layout etc.
Another possibility is wikia.com, but that’s public so anyone can contribute and we’d probably spend an inordinate amount of time just keeping it spam-free and idiot proof.
Self hosted wikis I’ve found so far are a nightmare to edit (thus severely reducing the number of contributors) and even the ones who claim to have wysiwyg editing are really only wysiwygiyag (… if you’re a geek). The only other one I’ve seen that’s anywhere near as easy to use as google is the one Apple bundles in with OS X server.
Anyway, let’s see what people think.
