Wikiposts!

Hello PPRuNe,

Have you ever wished there was a way to make a thread full of great information into a "master" thread, where all the best bits from the posts in the thread were collected right at the top for easy understanding?

Did you ever see a really amazing thread with a great first post -- only to realize that the information in the first post was out of date, and nobody could update it?

Enter today's brand new PP feature, the Wikipost.

What's a wikipost?

It's an additional section that can be activated for any thread on the forum. This section sits at the top of the thread, compressed into an inch or two of text that can be expanded by clicking a "+".

Once expanded, the wikipost can be read by anyone.

But what's IN the wikipost, you ask?

Whatever you want.

Essentially, this feature was created as a way to make a "knowledge drop" at the top of a megathread. It is an *editable* chunk of text that can be formatted, changed, edited, etc. until it becomes the definitive source of information on a topic. Just like a mini Wikipedia.

To add one to a thread, go to THREAD TOOLS and CREATE A WIKIPOST.

Who can edit them? A user must have 90 posts AND be on the forum for 90 days before they get create/edit permissions for wikiposts. This keeps the vandals and spammers away from wikiposts. Each wikipost has a HISTORY and the ability to REVERT any bad edit made to it.

When a thread has a wikipost added to it, you'll know it because it will have a little blue "WIKI" next to the title; also you can find all the wikis on PP by clicking the "Wikiposts" link in the blue menu bar at the top center of every page.

As to how they will get used on PP? That will be up to you.

Wikiposts are now activated for the whole community. So start thinking of where you'd like them and how you'll use them! There's one in this thread so you can see what they look like, and if you have any questions, please post them here so everyone can read the answers:

Wikiposts!

Enjoy,

--The PP team

Notice regarding post responsibility and anonymity

NOTICE: You are responsible for the content you post. This is a public forum. Treat it as if you are speaking in a crowded room. Recent high-profile defamation events illustrate that there are ways in which third parties can force personal data, including contents of personal messages, to be released by bulletin board owners. Be careful - libelous/defamatory posts can and have landed members in legal hot water. PPRuNe will not guarantee your anonymity in such situations.
