I think it would be cool if Wii U Forums had it's very own wiki all about the Wii U. It's link could be next to the Calender, so it's easy to access. It would be a very good way of finding out information on the Wii U and it's software all on the same website.

 I'm not really sure, cause it won't really have much use like Nollog said, but it would be cool.

Every page is PWN3.

Every link is PWN3.

The only category is PWN3.

Every song is PWN3.

You play as PWN3.

Your rival is PWN3.

All three starter Pokémon are PWN3.

Your hat is PWN3.

 

Welcome to the Wii U Wiki.

But... this is a forum... not a wiki. You want a wiki? go to a wiki page...

Anyone can contribute to a wiki and vandalism would most likely happen so no.

3DS forums had one of these.

It got flooded with shock images and gay porn, and hateful messages towards people.

 

Sounds like a great idea!

Reading this post in Cicero's voice made it much more funnier than it should have been.

Most of my experiences with wikis (other than wikipedia) are not that great.  They can be edited by anyone (or anyone that is given permission).  Wikis are extremely hard to moderate (and are a target for bots as well), and we don't have a massive staff (or as many responsible users) as most well working wikis.

 

When it comes down to it, there will be little about the WiiU, and more about the users and the drama that goes down...  I remember when somethingawful and Encyclopedia Dramatica added the last major forum I was on to their wiki...

So what would the wiki be about?

The Wii U or the forum?

 

I'm sure there's a few about the Wii U already and if it's about the forum, why?

Please don't.

 

Some of us remember how the 3DS forum wiki turned out.

That's what I believe. It would be a disaster waiting to happen.

I just know that certain people may attempt to abuse it. No names needed.

I would :P I'll admit it

 

There would just be entire blocks of text that say "Mitch is Sexy"

 

And if they asked who did it I'd just blame Auzzie.... and everyone would believe it because Auzzie thinks im so sessy :P

Please don't.

 

Some of us remember how the 3DS forum wiki turned out.

While that's probably what would happen, the bulk of that situation was done by a single member...

Public wikis in general are not a good idea never end well. Oh, i'm not referring to anything in particular that may or may not be related to the topic of this thread
