Hi,

We've had a few posts suggesting some sort of 'Wikipedia' type database for ProIV stuff...

Wikipedia runs on a system called MediaWiki, that is available for use, and someone has integrated this to the forum software that I use for ProivRC.

Do you think that this would suit us?

I'm already planning to upgrade the forum to the newest version of the forum software, when I get the time, so I could try to include this also. I'm just a bit busy with ProIV IDE at the mo.

Any comments / suggestions?

Some examples of what other forums have done...

Think its a fantastic idea, especially since some of the documentation is not very clear or just does not exist.

Having become a Wikipedia addict, I think this is a great idea!

The ProIV RC community has built a wealth of great information but the fragmented nature of the forum makes relevant posts difficult to locate, especially if when one is not exactly sure what they are looking for.

A ProIV RC wiki knowledgebase would be a terrific way to build cohesive and collaborative programming documentation.

Nothing at the mo, thanks....

I have to get my ISP to upgrade PHP and MySQL first, since they are a bit behind... :(
