This is posted in both Noir and SoM.

In sleuth world we have a lot of websites giving advice, acting as web pages for players or agencies. This creates a very hard to navigate community, the wiki would take all that information and put into one website.
For those of you who don't know a wiki is a database that can be edited by anyone, but some measures are in place to stop vandals.
The wiki would allow for the most up to date Sleuth Encyclopedia and will give agencies and users to show what they've got beyond the little spaces we are allowed to edit on our profiles.

I would just like to now if there is an interest for this, before I go ahead and maybe set it up.

I wouldn't mind a wiki with a bit of a narrowed focus. I would like to see the FM guide remain exclusively with Sleuthtips - and maybe little job answers as well (even though many agencies provide 'em). It's kind of what Jojo's site is known for.

Obviously great caution should be used in revealing spoilers - themes and certain faction related info.

I would love and welcome a history oriented wiki. During my time here I've killed countless hours digging through the message board looking for clues to the development pattern of the game and the community. There's a lot of interesting stuff in there. Grand ideas, conflicts, RL events (SleuthCon!), etc. The wiki could also serve as the "Hall of Fame" for venerated Sleuths and Agencies that have gone by the wayside.

As for agencies, it would be nice to have a list of agency websites. I think those sites would actually get more exposure that way, since now you have to spend lots of time clicking through the agency list browsing.

Maybe I should just create the wiki and see where the community wants to take it, any thoughts?

OK here you go, it's still extremely basic, I'm swamped with all this admin stuff and trying to find out what exactly I and and can not do. I may be putting in ads and adding some money to Jojo's free subscription fund at sleuth tips pretty soon.

Oops just noticed that non-members can't edit. Let me work on that.

Four in a row, YAY I win! Right, fixed the problem. So far I have only added two pages which are fairly basic. If you have anything to add, a better introduction, anything, that would be greatly appreciated.
