The site is packed with ads and distractions and is the opposite of the feeling I get from being on Hubski. Can the wiki migrate later? I'm sure mk would want it hosted on hubski itself... without ads.

I think mike makes a valid point, syncretic. Also, Ghostery has a count of 42. :)

What about making a post that contains this info, and others can make suggestions in the comments, or PM you? We could migrate it to somewhere else after we get something going. I could link to that.

Wow, that is ugly. I did a little light googling last night, and I found a bunch of free wiki engines (meaning you have to host it yourself, I think), but wikia was the only free wiki hosting service I could find. I never knew it had all of those annoying ads, since I only disable adblock for sites like reddit and hubski.

This is what it looks like for me:

Really? I have adblock, so it looks ad-free to me.

mk said that he doesn't have time to make a native wiki on hubski itself, but he would definitely be willing to link to one hosted by a third party. Wikia is the most reliable, free wiki service that I know of, but if someone knows about a better one, we could definitely use that instead.

I would like to create some sort of wiki. Right now the FAQ is just a static page, it's only editable by the admins. We would be able to crowdsource and create a really awesome, all-inclusive FAQ, and we could do other things as well like create a "History of Hubski" page that would document all of the changes to the website and how it evolved, among other things.

Good point.
