2006-03-15 16:32:08 I would be happy to contribute to this. —MikeThomas
2006-03-15 20:16:13 How do other community-based wikis deal with this? I'd be happy to have an "editorial board" or something similar to provide some direction. —TomMaszerowski
At Davis Wiki we don't have anything like this, but I think it's going to need to happen. So, we'll follow your lead :) —PhilipNeustrom
2006-03-16 11:39:00 Due to the way a Wiki works, isn't it de facto that lead contributors act as an editorial board? —JasonOlshefsky
2006-03-16 15:04:17 if by 'editorial board' you mean an activist group that edits pages for political/sanity reasons, nope. If you mean the people who have the final say if there is a conflict of viewpoints/personalities, then yes. —FarMcKon
2006-03-16 15:50:02 The latter is what I meant by direction. That's why I used the quotes. I don't think a heavy-handed approach is appropriate here. —TomMaszerowski
2006-03-16 15:55:26 I don't see any conflict that has required a 'final say' so far. I think the energy that would go into deciding who the chosen few are could be better spent improving the wiki itself. It ain't broke - why fix it? —RottenChester
2006-03-16 15:56:06 Take care not to designate an editorial board. Unlike newspapers, wikis and other online services enjoy wide immunity from libel posted by users. —JohnLam
2006-03-17 01:20:39 I agree with Rotten & Lam (sounds like a law firm there). I would like to see some money accumulate to pay for getting the word out (like the awsome bumper stickers), and maybe pay for some of our hosting costs. I would like to have the design of the site 'approved' (at least rubber stamped) so it's not just whoever had R00t on that day's idea. I would like to have some kind of 'face' so that someone can go to things like 'digital rochester' and be able to 'speak for the wiki' is a sense. These are the types of things I would like to see the lead contribs work with. Now, this is just my first-pass ideas. Some may be worse (or better) than I first think of them (like the editorial comments). If you spot problems, please point them out. —FarMcKon
