Just thinking without having read and understood everything from my side (sorry, a bit in a hurry). ;)

--- Quote from: MLM on December 05, 2011, 04:25:16 PM ---I like the idea of just creating another namespace in the wiki but the way you say all of this seems like it will turn into the tips and tricks board which is cluttered and unorganized.

The advantage of the wiki in terms of organization is that it is defined by the categories.
Look for example at the Alphabetical list of all bulletin board codes or at the WIP of the $smcFunc pages.
These pages are automatically generated by the pages belongings to a certain category.

So I can imagine for example an "home page" of the "tips and trick" namespace (automatically) populated with a list of all the tips and tricks subdivided by categories.

Angelina Belle:
I like this discussion about the pros and cons of various ways to organize the tips and tricks.
The problem with moderation is -- there needs to be a moderator with time to moderate.

The problem with "leaving moderation up to the community" on the wiki is that, well, anything could happen -- anything the community can dream up.

On the wiki, a "moderator" can come along and "clean things up" after the fact.

I do think that, in the end, the wiki will prove to be a good place to organize tips and tricks.  Interested members of the community can learn to use tools like semantic mediawiki to help organize tips and tricks.  And when they've done that, we can apply this knowledge to the FAQs currently in the wiki main space.

MLM -- are you mostly interested in posting your one tip (one way to get around SMF's restrictions on attached files), or are you interested in a "tips and tricks" experiment?

Of course i would love to have that tip posted in the wiki because it is a fairly routine and integral part of smf. But I am also interested in writing more content like that on SMF. This namespace / category should not be posted in willy nilly. Stuff should be added from peoples personal wiki space by a moderator into the Tips and Tricks space.

I am sure some staff would be willing to read through some content after it has been submitted (in one form or another, either by making a discussion on a doc writing board, etc). I understand that this takes time but if the article just doesn't fit the standards / cut, just deny it.

Angelina Belle:
I will not be around much, if at all, in the next couple of weeks.
So I will return to this in January.

At that time, I am going to seriously talk to folks on the team about a wiki-place for "non-sanctioned" tips and tricks, and invite the "tips and tricks community" to organize it. It seems like an experiment worth trying.  If we hate it, we can always move content back into the forum and end the experiment.

January. OK?

 :-* The point of this is not to move everything from the board to the wiki. Most of what is in that board is kinda specific and this should be general tutorials.
