This could be good or very bad.  The only way I see keeping from going bad.  Would be allow peer-review of added content.
Not editorial peer-review.  But user feedback peer-review.

Not open forum review, but by private comment.  If the editor, sees value in the comment, action can be taken.  If not a
rebuttal comment back as why the edited action should stand.

If multiple comments are received by the editor about a change.  A further contemplation of the edit could take place.
Then no action by ADMIN would be needed.

If too many negative comments are given to an editor, editorial access should be revoked.  I would want to keep the
wiki in high standards.  The wiki is used by way to many learners to teach the wrong way of doing it.

There are many ways to say A=A+1, but not arrive there in a roundabout way.  The wiki should reflect that.

Wikis are self-correcting by nature, the more users willing to take part, the better. Ground rules are laid out above. Please keep this thread for account requests for now. Shall I add you, sir?

No thank-you, I would prob muddy the waters.  I have too many bad habits from my trash-80 days.

That's why I said there are many ways to get to A=A+1.  The BASIC language is just that way.

Endpoint: I do want the WIKI to succeed.

Hey odin!

I've been active on the Discord server mostly, but I've run across a couple of small things to fix. I would love to improve the overall quality, especially missing links, mistakes, info that needs update, etc.!
Check out what I do besides coding: http://loudar.myportfolio.com/

I have not understood if we choose to have a wiki account can we post our listings as an example? so anyone can post a listing on the wiki ?
does the wiki mean this?  -->  http://www.qb64.org/wiki/Main_Page    ?

That's the wiki link, yes.

The idea is not to post program samples or listings there. People who apply to have editing rights are supposed to help maintain the wiki regarding grammar, spelling and technical errors. And eventually improve upon the existing articles.
