Thank you. I'm a fan of RC idea, but implementation seems quite limited to me. --DSblizzard 10:54, 28 February 2011 (UTC)
We (afaik) agree. Working around MediaWiki limitations is tricky. We know how we'd like to organize it, and Semantic MediaWiki should let us do it, but the learning curve is such that few of us have had time to poke at it. I'm the site owner, and this isn't even a full-time job for me. --Michael Mol 14:30, 28 February 2011 (UTC)
In addition to the above, when editing, it's polite to include something meaningful in the summary that says what you've done -- for example, if you add a new solution to a task, it's nice to put something like "added language". Adding the summary takes little time, and it really helps others.
Under Special:Preferences is an option for the wiki to remind you to enter a summary if you forget; I highly recommend turning it on. (Look for "Prompt me when entering a blank edit summary" under the "Editing" tab.) -- Erik Siers 02:54, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
