This forum is a great place for fans to collectively gather information about certain topics. I realize that Discourse has a feature called Wiki Posts, basically allowing community edits. I think this could be very helpful to utilize.
We have threads that compile voice actor credits, famous people in the phonebook an I envision similar threads about game art who-made-what or collecting sekrit options in the Prefs.json. For those threads, an overview post which can be edited and updated by anyone in the community could be useful.
Discourse has so-called Wiki Posts:
However, to turn a post to a Wiki post, by default you need to be Mod/Admin/Leader (see list of people with leader badge for this forum) - so the average user cannot set the wiki flag by themselves. Rather than not using this feature - because people are probably not aware of it or don’t have the privileges - I would like to give it a try.
What do you think? Should we include a message to a specific forum member, like “@discobot: could you make this post a wiki?” Maybe Robin @eviltrout, do you have any suggestions as a Discourse expert?
Do you think this feature is relevant and interesting for this community? Are there any downsides to it (besides it probably should not be overused)?
I am happy to hear your opinions.
