I think what's needed is a Gallery of "Tiki Sites in a Box". In other words, Tiki sites that are preconfigured to meet a particular kind of needs. The needs should be defined not in terms of features, but in terms of GOALS of the end user or organisation.
This could be a list of descriptions like this:
- I want a site to enable collaboration inside my organisation.
- I want a site to broadcast my ideas to the world and allow people to add to them and comment on them.
- I want a site that will act as an open knowledge base on a particular topic.
Each of these could point to an example which would be a "fake" site that could act as a sandbox. People could go to this fake site, play around with it (but not reconfigure it), to see if it's what they are looking for.
This would allow easy single click configuration of Tiki. The user would simply click on one of the items in the Gallery, and the Tiki site would be configured accordingly.
One issue is: what happens if the user choose wrong and later wants to switch to a different model? I guess if no content has been created in the site it's fine, but what if content has already been created and that content is somewhat incompatible with the new model that the user is choosing?

Unable to connect to show2.tiki.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.tiki.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.tiki.org instance. To start, simply select a version and click on "Create show2.tiki.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.tiki.org.
The URL for the show2.tiki.org instance that demonstrates this bug is at: http://. 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:///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.tiki.org instance, create a snapshot that can then be downloaded by developers for further investigation.
Snapshots can be accessed at: http:///snapshots/. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show".Create new snapshot
