Wiki

This category is for user generated wikis. Examples of a wiki post would be a list of political books by categor or region. Historical wikis are also great. There really isn’t a limit on the type of wiki that can be created, just remember that it’s a wiki and not a discussion thread. All original posts are editable by the entire community. Just like a regular wiki, all wiki posts can be edited by any member of the forum. The wiki takes advantage of Freebird’s built in revisions. If two users are editing the post at the same time, the latest save becomes the latest revision, thus overwriting the contents of the previous save. It’s always possible to go back to a previous revision.
