Post Wiki
Ok guys. I am for excessive redundancy on the internet. I think it would be helpful if we had a Wiki! That way we could all post our findings and create tutorials as well as update older tutorials that no longer work. I would also recommend some modification to the native MediaWiki code to provide some layer of protection from malicious activity. I am up to being a wiki moderator/admin dude if you need one. If you need a place to host it, I could host it too, if you just want to point the subdomain to one of my servers. Anyone up for this idea?

This has been discussed by the OSDever.net team and we decided against the use of a wiki and instead, opted for Video & Forum based tutorials/documentation.

I think the major issue with me is that osdev.org already has a pretty comprehensive wiki. What would ours bring the the community?

Yeah, I cannot see the point of trying to compete with osdev.org's Wiki as it is a very good resource in Wiki format that we would find it hard to beat.

As has been discussed before, another approach, such as video/audio/written tutorials would be better recieved by the OSDevving community.
