    How many people think that a 650 Wiki needs to be created on TreoCentral??

    I for one think it should have happened A LONG time ago.

    If not an entire Wiki being re-created (since MTDN already has one)...at least pointing to MTDN's Wiki...like on the home page or something?

    How 'bout starting a new one on TC, and then merging the two once created??

    I realize that MTDN already has one, but really its pretty crappy to what the entire TreoCentral user base could accomplish. There would still be a discussion board to comliment the wiki, where the noobs that are constantly asking a question that has been gone over repeatedly within the first page of threads.

    Change your "RTFM"s to "RTFW"s (just flip that frown, upside down)

    Wiki: What Is Wiki

    Wiki is in Ward's original description:

    The simplest online database that could possibly work.

    Wiki is a piece of server software that allows users to freely create and edit Web page content using any Web browser. Wiki supports hyperlinks and has a simple text syntax for creating new pages and crosslinks between internal pages on the fly.

    Wiki is unusual among group communication mechanisms in that it allows the organization of contributions to be edited in addition to the content itself.

    Like many simple concepts, "open editing" has some profound and subtle effects on Wiki usage. Allowing everyday users to create and edit any page in a Web site is exciting in that it encourages democratic use of the Web and promotes content composition by nontechnical users.

    Historical Note. The first ever wiki site was created for the Portland Pattern Repository in 1995. That site now hosts tens of thousands of pages.
