Wiki forum?

I have had some ideas for the wiki, and would like to get some conversation going about the best way to implement them, as well as learn from people more knowledgeable than me about some of the limitations.

I am aware that I am able to edit the wiki, and that their are talk pages, but this seems to be a better location for the level of dialog i'm looking for. If the wiki and its maintenance do not justify their own forum, what forum would it belong in?

Here or the lounge would work. But since you started it here let's just keep it here for the present.

OK, what do you propose doing with the Wiki?

i dont know what app this site uses, but i know that most CMSes offer some sort of modual plug in system. There are things like the table of what format work with what ebook readers. Those would be better implemented as some sort of database back end with a user interface on the front that allows for customizing what your looking at. Hopefully we could also work some sort of sort by feature into it.

similarly, comparing formats to each other would be a helpful thing to have, and would also make more since as dynamic content.

I was also wondering if we would want to have a separate name space for format names, or if the three letter extension they are know by would be best?

basicly, i have been looking at the wiki wondering how it could be properly maintained, and the answer is... some of the most dynamic content needs a better system.

It would be so cool if the different reader pages could each have a bit of code that had something like {ReaderCompatibleFormats:PRS-505} and in the page it output a comma separated list of all the formats in the data base.



so what now?

hopefully someone who has the power to alter the wiki install will contact me regarding this...
