I've gotten several messges from the Wikipedia folks that links to the Elsmar Cove forums were removed because isixsigma is the 'authorative' site. So - I have no love for Wikipedia.
I've only used Wikipedia 2 or 3 times. I cannot recall using isixsigma for an 'authorative' answer to any of my questions. I see your point Marc.

I'm still struggling a bit with how everything works in wiki's. I'm 'registered' there as Marc T Smith but didn't know we could put up 'user pages'.

In addition to the User Page, you can also have any number of sub-pages.

Here's what I have:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Zaui
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Zaui/Gallery
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Zaui/draft1
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Zaui/draft2
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Zaui/draft3
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Zaui/draft4
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Zaui/dyk
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Zaui/sandbox

To make a sub-page, just enter the URL of the page you want to make (User:JohnDoe/subpage for example), hit enter, and it should send you to a new edit box. They're good for working on articles (drafts), trying out stuff (sandbox), keeping track of photos (gallery) or just for fun (dyk).

As luck would have it.... The wiki was vandalized. So I've briefly taken it down and am looking at the most recent version which allows editing (including adding new pages) to only be done by logged in people. I'm still checking but I *think* this version can also require an e-mail verification to register.

I thank Scott for seeing the vandalism right away and letting me know. It was also pointed out that the initial setup (all letters on one page) might not be a good idea.

The wiki idea didn't interest me much until recently, and I'm still not terribly sure about it, but so far it is closest to what I think I want.

I'll keep everyone informed of what the latest scoop is. This is just a quick update.

Thanks for the update. I, too, have mixed feelings about a Wiki. I really would like to see it work.

One thing that surprised me is some people are making entire web sites with mediawiki, such as their personal sites. They apparently keep them secure as I noted above by restricting 'edits' (which includes starting new pages) to 'registered' people and then they also restrict who can register.

I'm still sifting through some of the features. I had 1.3 online. I downloaded, and am looking at, version 1.5.5.

Wikipedia has been going through the same conundrum ever since the Seigenthaler problem occurred. I think they moved to not allowing unregistered users to create new pages - which wouldn't have prevented the problem, btw, but, baby steps, I guess.

The key to is to require registration and a valid e-mail address, I believe. It's just like the forums here. Some people do register here and spam the forums but requiring registration and e-mail verification keeps that to a minimum.
