Either way, voting is probably not a bad idea in a community this small.

Well now that I think about it, going by this post, it's like 2 for and 2 against, so there's no clear consensus that we should pick an official wiki. If you feel like reposting to /s/AskSaidIt or /s/SaidItSurverys and making it clearly a Y/N poll to get some more feedback, that'd be cool too. Something like "Should InfoGalactic be the preferred external wiki site for SaidIt?"

The reverse idea is still valid though: link to SaidIt from many wikis and social sites of varied political allegiances.

Agreed. The more links to SaidIt the better.

it seems like an enormous burden and I personally lack the OCD required to participate in such

Ditto!

Should InfoGalactic be the preferred external wiki site for SaidIt

Since both you and Jason have weighed in I feel like I've gotten a better feel for how it might go down. If you sincerely believe there would be something to gain then I'll do it.

Of course anyone who has an opinion can just jump in right here and have their say. There's no reason my dumb ideas should go unchallenged.

Improvement: "Should InfoGalactic or WikiSpooks be the preferred external wiki site for SaidIt?"

But that's not even a great question.

Should we even have an external wiki preference?

Should we/someone make it or go with IG, WS, etc?

Probably not.

Who's for it?

Why would you go for IG over WikiSpooks, who's main man /u/Robin is a SaidItron and excellent contributor? Maybe he might even be interested in maintaining another wiki too.

IMHO, it's a little too soon for a Survey that will diffuse this thread, unless we all migrate there. We don't even know what the proper question is.

It seems Tom is for it or neutral, so yeah maybe the consensus is no.

Great point. Yeah I'm over this too, I think it's a non-issue. We endorse the built in SaidIt wiki above all others!

Mosdef, from the start. But a good convo.

That goes without saying. Unless we SaidItrons dev a sister site with crossover linking code and notifications. So far there's not too many wikis to copy paste over, if/when.
