So you admit this is dangerous and yet you still publish some one else's
link ?

Remind me not to give you any of my email or link addresses

I hope you have some kind of spam control on the install It doesn't come
natively with one, as I've learned after 2 or 4 thousand vandalisms

Will, I'm reminded why I don't get into forum discussions with you - you
don't read information that's provided.  In the name of brevity here ("Never
invite Tony to give a one minute speech !") I had taken my forum posting and
moved it out to my blog.  In that blog I have a link to the wiki prototype.
With apologies, I didn't post the link here as I thought.  But if you had
visited the blog which I created specifically to respond to your points, you
would have found the MediaWiki prototype replacement for PickWiki.

Response 1, I refer again to:
Response 2, see comment in my last note: Nothing is perfect. Join millions
of people who deal with that concept every day.
Response 3: (again) you can get notifications by other means.

> I disagree that people will not use a wiki to contribute code changes.

Disagree, but here's the change log showing activity over the last year:
Last month you yourself added a link to a page that doesn't exist.  (Thank
you for that valuable resource.)  Recent notes from people here, and the
log, confirm that almost no one ever contributes updates to existing code at
PickWiki.  There are notes on the wiki about how to use the site, and people
eager and easily available to help.  The site is just not used for
collaboration though it's available for anyone who wants it.  No, it's not
great, but Ian didn't originally intend it to be a collaboration site when
he created it ... it just became a defacto repository.  If we get
significant demand for improving the resource for real collaboration, a few
of us here will be eager to do it.
