I am pretty new here. As I saw the eOSWiki entry I happily went there and was disappointed.
Let me get it clear: Great that you collect HowTos there!
But: Why do you announce it as being a Wiki and implement just another forum category?
Why don’t you implement a Wiki and unleash its power!? For me as a Wiki maintainer for years this simply hurts. Please change the misleading name to “HowTo collection”.
For me it’s pretty clear, wikis are editable topics that explain how to perform a specific task. The comments coming after the first post serve to improve the first one by providing new ideas, steps that would have been missed in the procedure. Everything is updated in the first post.
Due to my job I don’t like things being titled erroneously, just because “it is such a cute word for it”. This behaviour is the seed for misunderstandings and endless unnecessary support tasks. Using a wrong term is not “cute” but rubbish.
Sorry for being so strict, but we have so many problems on this world - we should not mindlessly create more.
The forum SW may offer whatever privileges are possible and the admins may grant them to whom they want.
How ever those pages are editable then - they do not become a Wiki, because that is an entirely different technology. So don’t call it a Wiki.
