Is there any chance SaidIt might consider hosting their own wiki?

They're very easy to do. I set one up at home several years ago, but 1) I never used it and 2) I broke it when I upgraded my XAMPP software stack and I never bothered to fix it. Customizing it is another thing, but something worth doing to distinguish yourselves from other bland wikis.

InfoGalactic does not acknowledge any ideas, and I don't know what their coding skills are like. I've proposed ideas about using Wikipedia as a base with their deep encyclopedia, over which an additional layer could add counter-Wikipedia content, like their Alt-Right perspectives, and my Truther take on things. I've also pitched decentralization concepts into their silence. I don't know how SaidIt feels about the Alt-Right but SaidIt could try to contact Vox Day about brainstorming on the future of decentralized censoship free alternatives.

On another front, there's the new Everipedia which is embracing blockchaing tech, etc. I don't know where they're going, but at least their stuff is on GitHub.

Every sub already has a wiki actually

I almost feel like you said that before.

How does it work? Where is it?

Under the wiki tab in every sub.

I'm not seeing it.

Sorry I was vague earlier, my bad. Every sub has the capability for it, but it's disabled by default unless the sub moderators enable it.

I've created a sub with wiki enabled, and set the settings so anyone can edit the wiki (as opposed to just the sub mods, or approved wiki editors for the sub). You can try it out here: https://saidit.net/s/WikiTest/ then click the 'wiki' tab

The controls for the wiki page are on the bottom right. There's a lot of functionality here, so have fun playing around with it!

Usually I get too excited about some things so I'll try to be restrained as I give you my first impressions - FUCKING AWESOME ! ! !

And I haven't even tried it out yet. I'm going to refrain because 1) I'll save that for my projects, 2) I've been playing around on SaidIt too much and ignoring my 2 top priority projects, one of which I intend to introduce here soon, but I still have to prep it, 3) I have a smaller project, hopefully self propelled, that could be perfect for this and it will be my next sub.

Sounds great! We'd love to have more subs that are wiki-based. It's something that was pretty under-utilized on reddit, so I think there's a lot that could be done with it!
