    Hi, Tom.

    Thanks for initiating this PIUG wiki. It looks like a very good start!

    I am testing the functionality of adding a comment here to see where it will show up. It seems that if comments sent by individuals are displayed on the same pages as these links to the knowledge databases, they may "clutter" the resources. I would prefer that the comments are sent and stored separately from the "official" pages of the wiki where the actual "knowledge gold nuggets" are stored.

    Thanks.

    Cynthia

    Cynthia: 

    The issue is that we generally don't have "official" pages in the wiki that we would restrict either for writing or addition comments. Perhaps the front pages of each wikispace and a few others would be managed only by the administrators. However, to do that to very many pages would run counter to the community nature of the wiki which encourages everyone to contribute. In general, PIUG Wiki registrants would have the choice of directly editing the content of the page via the Edit function at the top or adding a comment as you did. Of course, administrators can delete or edit contributions; Wikipedia managers/moderators/administrators do that all the time. I think you should consider the main PIUG website as our official pages and the wiki as our community collaboration medium.
