View Full Version : How about a Wiki for saving knowledge?
02-04-2005, 04:16 AM
I really like this forum. The advice is superb, and the level of enthusiasm but most if all knowledge shown by it denizens is wonderful.
Is there any chance we could set a Wiki up to start distilling some of this knowledge "for future generations" ;-) ?
It'd give people a chance to add their knowledge to the collective pool, and also allow everyone to edit/correct as they see fit.
Wiki can run under php, so the technology shouldn't be a huge problem, although I realise that any installation of such stuff is non-trivial.
What do people think? What do the site admins think?
You mean something like this (http://www.amigacentre.co.uk/cgi-bin/wiki.pl)? ;-)

Er, something exactly like that! :-D
Just had a search, and it seems that Alx from these forums is responsible. I'll try and get in contact, as I'd love to see that grow to something huuuuge :-)

Guess that I'd better own up now :-P
We've been going for well over a year (http://www.amiga.org/forums/showthread.php?t=44693) and recently relaunched (http://www.amiga.org/forums/showthread.php?t=45707) after some server difficulties. The more people who can add content, the better this will be as a resource, and there's no danger of it being lost since it's under the LGPL (while I'd ask people to not fork the Wiki, if for some reason I decided to stop hosting it I'd definitely post a CD to someone else who could - there's no reason why it cannot stay online indefinitely).
Note also that the Wiki is completely platform-agnostic - there's room for AmigaOS, MorphOS, AROS (and even a bit on PIOS, RiscOS and MacOS - even if its extremely tenuously conencted to the Amiga it'll stay). Tutorials and descriptions of hardware/software that are currently stubs are particularly welcome at the moment.

I love wikis :-)
I visited and fixed some info on Amiga UNIX a bit. That's all I really know much about on the Amiga.
I hope more people contribute. I find wikis to be a very valuable resource.
