New Wiki?

Recommended Posts

Since NuWiki is now not receiving any support at all, and may not survive future upgrades of the forum, I'm thinking about dropping it and going for a more conventional wiki, like MediaWiki or something. Anyone who have any opinions on this?

A Wiki's a Wiki's a Wiki as far as I am concerned.

As long as the articles are retained and we can log in and add/amend things, then I don't really care what sits behind it.

There are several good wikis out there, Mediawiki is one. DokuWiki and PMWiki are two other examples. What would make everyone's life's easier is a "bridge" that enables the wiki to use the user database of the forum. Wikis are good but they also comes with a fair bit of security issues. Spammers love to pester an poorly defended/configured wiki - and that part is a big plus on the side of NuWiki - all the security issues are already taken care of. That being said NuWiki is of no use if it's not maintained...
