well, there is no need for a active moderator in a wiki, We all moderate info. the only task of the owner of the wiki is to make regular backups for if the server crashes. If a page is altered, the older version is allways available for restoration. The fun part is that colaborating on a topic can be done by more persons at the same time. for example, i can setup a doc on Xenix and soeone can acorrect me if i'm wrong. there is no need for a preset structure, as the wiki can be structured on the fly.

its very elegant and intuitive.

for example, take a look at about another orphan of me: my Apple Newton. There is a wiki on

browse around and see how things work. this takes the load of a faq manager enormous. and you can choose for restricted edititng or open. i prefer open as for directness and we are in a nice anyway. if you have lets say 200 contributors, that changes of course
