elements of a wonderful wiki
Elements of a Wonderful Wiki

Start with a group of knowledgeable, respectful, motivated people collaborating on a project who will:

  • Employ a third person neutral point of view (NPOV)
  • Link early and often
  • Be bold – the wiki mantra

Add a wiki application software that:

  • Tracks edits and version control
  • Offers some level of security to prevent vandals and block trolls by IP address
  • May include reputation ranking to add credibility
