Definition of wiki[edit]

A brief definition of what a wiki is and why one would want one as CMS is IMHO quite necessary. It would also be nice to mention some crucial principles of MediaWiki, e.g. the fact that every action is transparently tracked and associated to its author, either in logs or history, to facilitate discussions and reversals/corrections. --Nemo 20:59, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

I think anyone interested in knowing what a wiki is would simply visit w:wiki. As for principles, perhaps some additional language about MediaWiki being resilient, transparent, and/or accountable might be good to include. --MZMcBride (talk) 02:58, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
I've added something more verbose in that page; some things that we sometimes take for granted actually have huge daily consequences and the differences are easily seen by using some other wiki systems, not to mention standard CMS. --Nemo 11:58, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

Configuration settings[edit]

By the way, the addition was not original research.[1] Relatedly, I'm looking for reliable sources outlining a list of relevant features for wiki engines, see w:Talk:Comparison_of_wiki_software#More_comparisons. --Nemo 22:24, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
