Let's make a wiki!
Posted 13 June 2009 - 08:22 PM
It seems that within the limits of forum functionality, "pinning" indexes of important threads and putting them in the Important Topics section is the best way to collect info like this in one place. But a wiki would be a drastically better solution, in my opinion. Forums are a great tool for group conversation, but not cataloging information. Is there any possibility of adding wiki functionality to EB?

“Tell me one last thing,” said Harry. “Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head?”
“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”

BW already has a functional framework and decent article base. It just needs a few more contributors to really get the project going again and ANYBODY can be a contributor. You don't have to write big articles or even know all that much about wiki markup.
Give it a try.

Thanks for those links, though! I didn't even know they existed. I agree that reinventing the wheel would be foolish. I'm surprised that even two LEGO wikis can coexist. What's the general consensus of which is better?
As cool as it would be (IMHO) to have one massive site that includes comprehensive wikified information on all LEGO sets, reviews, MOCs, techniques, etc, along with a rich forum for discussing all the above, perhaps it's best to use the right tool for the right job at this point: Flickr/Brickshelf for photo hosting, Brickipedia/Brickwiki for wiki info, and EB (of course) for all discussion.
