Ultimately, this is Larry's decision as the moderator, but here's what I
think. I think it would be a good idea to have a couple of knowledgable
people in charge of it, possibly have it divided up in to sections as Larry
suggested. possibly then, people could submit things to these people. It
seems to me that Dan and Neil seem to have the widest knowledge base of
information concerning both audio subjects and web page management. both
have also volunteered to help with this. So maybe they and Larry could
split it up? There seem to be some objections to wicky, so what about using
the scripts Larry suggested so that every time one of the editors submitted
an update to the page it would automatically appear on the site? This seems
to be the easiest, most organized solution.
Just my thoughts.

I like the fact that it would be easy for people to add things, but here is a problem that might arise. Let's say I put something in the wiki that is not correct. What then. Do we need to have things approved before they are added? If so, then this will be as much trouble for Larry as what we have now. But, I do think that we have to be careful that what gets added is correct information, and I think it has to be added in logical places. This may mean a bit of management of the overall product. I don't like to go there, because it would be some work for the person or persons who do it, but the end result of a not very well organized wiki to which anyone can add whenever and wherever they think likely, could result in confusion. What do people think?

Hey, that's a great idea. What do the rest of you think? Is this something you can set up, Tim? Can we make it customizable so it is easy to navigate?

Subject: [bct] A more robust FAQ
If this is the sort of direction people would like to go and if Larry agrees, what about a wiki? This would allow anyone who wants to make a
havecontribution do so easily and it doesn't require as much HTML knowledge.
Alternatively, what about considering something like faq-o-matic, which would also allow easier addition of new content and doesn't require HTML knowledge?
just my 2 cents....
