It appears that the focus needs to be kept fairly restricted, initially at least, to simple technical issues that aren't contentious. There certainly shouldn't be a wiki comparing drivers, for example, because you're straight in to fanboyism then.
I've already referenced the cfd-online site as an example and wonder what people think of their wiki element...
I mentioned in another thread (on moderators sucking or something) that mods might end up acting as filters removing good technical/engineering posts from the general detritous of the ordinary threads to a sort of read-only archive. This is almost like a wiki site but with limited (to mods) authorship. As a starting point, it might be worth considering? As it develops, perhaps editorial control could be extended to forum members of good standing (perhaps agreed by a simple vote of the general readership - if a member is voted for by e.g. 20 other members then they get editorial access)
Dunno, just running out some ideas...
