Oops. I think you misread what I meant by this. I was only saying,
the forum would itself still be a wiki. (PmWiki of course). So you
don't lose any benefits of a wiki by making it organized a little
more. I'm all for wikis! The advantage I see to a forum (FAQ system)
is that it can be somewhat structured--to help control the flow of
information, and to make things more readily retrievable. At least
better than the current FAQ page.
