Yes, I also agree there's no consensus, but remember that this isn't the English Wikipedia and we don't necessarily do things by consensus. WP:CON can be useful in group decision making, but we're not bound by it and having a Wikipedia-style "consensus" for something doesn't necessarily mean it will or won't happen as the Chapter and the committee have obligations and responsibilities outside a "consensus" among half-a-dozen people on a mailing list.
When we were setting up the official wiki, the committee considered using flagged revs for members. (see: http://wikimedia.org.au/wiki/Resolution:Officialwiki_configuration_and_accounts) I'm not sure what ended up happening with it or how far we got towards implementation, but I guess we could consider the possibility of using flagged revs. However, I feel that Brianna raised some important issues with regard to members v non-members editing that can't just be cast aside. Nick, I also don't think editing privs is an effective draw-card for getting more members. I can't imagine anyone being motivated to join WMAu so they can edit the official wiki. But we don't currently have the ability to offer much in tangible members privs so it counts in "What do I get?". -Sarah On Wed, Jun 10, 2009 at 11:12 AM, K.
