Up Periscope

A thought:

I want a small, easy to use wiki. One that anyone can post to (TiddlyWiki, last I looked, was one-person-edits, if that's changed then I'll give it serious consideration) and doesn't have the baggage of MediaWiki. Wikia is a no-go, because their ads are thoroughly obnoxious and I'd much rather self-host.

In more pertinent news: 7,500 words in 2 days. Beginning day 3.

Down periscope.

I would strongly recommend PmWiki - almost infinitely skinnable, very extensible, very active mailing list.... flat file, so no evil database faff, authorisation v tunable (so you have world readable, or people's private pages, and everything in between).

PmWiki looks hot. Thanks!

I'd suggest www.wikidot.com. Two of the games I play in use it for game wiki's and it seems to work extremely well.

I'm after something I can host on my own server, I'm afraid. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

I used usemod, not great but works.

It's between usemod and PmWiki. Usemod has the benefit of being Perl, though. Will investigate both.

Can I get some time to pick your brains about wikis/other forms of external brains this week?

I'm in edinburgh till monday evening - if you are off monday lunchtime would be a stunning opportunity to get a pint & sandwich or similar.

To give a clue towards topic, some of my more recnet tamblings have been stored by a friend in their wiki:

I'm against Moin Moin, if you're considering that one.

Wikidot seems good, from what little I've seen of it in action. My boss wants to use it as a knowledge base system for our office.
