(10:33:47 AM) ***dthacker also wonders if there is a login-timestamp wiki syntax such as mediawiki's ~~~~ that would auto sign with user id and date/time.
Wiki pages are great to produce Neutral Point of View (NPOV) content. If we need to know who added what, we check the edit history.
For debates, discussions, opinions, etc, people will often use Tiki blogs, Tiki forums or comments at the bottom of wiki pages. These are more natural formats and it's clear who thinks what and who said what. Comments & forum threading make it clear who is responding to who/what.
However, in some cases, it is useful to have this type of interaction in wiki pages. The TikiWiki documentation Editorial board has monthly meetings to discuss and make decisions. Members can edit, comment and vote on motions.
The way people add their comments is not standard and if we are not careful, it can get messy. This often happens in wikis.
Some wikis use a special syntax for "signature". This would be a way to associate the name of the user and maybe the date to a specific comment. It would be nice to clearly and visually associate the user to the comment. Maybe the comment & signature are in a same box?
It would be nice also for people to be able to express support to an idea in the wiki page, with a thumbs up (+1) or a thumbs down (-1). Right now, the wiki ratings feature let's us vote only once per wiki page.
These syntaxes should be quicktags to it's easy to add. Maybe some of the less important meta data (ex.: date of comment) would be only visible on mouse-over. (and thus not in printed mode). The mouse over could also contain a link to the user's personal wiki page and some data about the user (his avatar, score, etc).
Everyone: please share your ideas on this and how you have seen it implemented elsewhere.
Show.tiki.org snapshot creation is in progress... Please monitor http://marclaporte-11197-1409.show2.tiki.org/snapshots/ for progress. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show".

Unable to connect to show2.tikiwiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
Show.tiki.org is currently under maintenance. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Unable to get information from show2.tikiwiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
Show.tiki.org is in the progress of creating the new instance. Please continue waiting for a minute or two. If this continues on for more than 10 minutes, please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
To help developers solve the bug, we kindly request that you demonstrate your bug on a show2.tikiwiki.org instance. To start, simply select a version and click on "Create show2.tikiwiki.org instance". Once the instance is ready (in a minute or two), as indicated in the status window below, you can then access that instance, login (the initial admin username/password is "admin") and configure the Tiki to demonstrate your bug. Priority will be given to bugs that have been demonstrated on show2.tikiwiki.org.
The URL for the show2.tikiwiki.org instance that demonstrates this bug is at: http://marclaporte-11197-1409.show2.tiki.org. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show". This is different from the initial login and password for a new Tiki which is "admin" and "admin".
For the install log, see http://marclaporte-11197-1409.show2.tiki.org/info.txt
Note that if you see PHP errors or a Tiki claiming to be missing third party software, the instance creation is probably not finished. Please wait a couple minutes and reload.
Snapshots are database dumps of the configuration that developers can download for debugging. Once you have reproduced your bug on the show2.tikiwiki.org instance, create a snapshot that can then be downloaded by developers for further investigation.
Snapshots can be accessed at: http://marclaporte-11197-1409.show2.tiki.org/snapshots/. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show".Create new snapshot
