But! But! Anyone can edit anything. Won't we get nonsense, trash talk, or vandalism?
- This wiki thing seems to work for other websites like Wikipedia and many many others. As long as a solid core of people keeps an eye out for crap, things will get fixed quickly. It's very easy to throw away edits (revert). Also, you can mark a page you want to "watch", which means you will get email when it is edited. By default, it'll "watch" any page you created. There's also a built-in way to have conversations about what should be on a page: each page has a matching "discussion" page. That's where you can stick comments, questions, suggestions, feedback specific to that page. Oh, and I disabled editing by people who are not registered users.
What about privacy? Will people know what I wrote?
The wiki software tracks who edits what. Please don't assume that you're anonymous. On the other hand, your work also won't be revealed by googling for your name.
Editing & How-to
Do I really have to learn this wiki formatting? Can't we use HTML or BBcode?
Yeah, it's another thing to learn. It's annoying, but so it goes. It's pretty simple and there are good tipsheets around. If you're not sure how to do something, find another page that has it, and click its edit tab to see how it's done there, then just steal it.
Integrating with BBTC.org
Is this going to be separate from BBTC.org?
For now. Over time, we'll integrate more & more.
What about a tie to the rides calendar?
Yes, the "locations" on the calendar should point to the wiki, and each wiki page should have a section that says 'upcoming rides here' but it requires writing a bunch of code on both ends.
