On smaller wikis
I'm active in a small but growing wiki, Appropedia, which only has a handful of active editors. Currently anonymous editing is blocked. It might be good to allow anonymous editing, but is it possible to effectively restrict vandalism in a small wiki? Or is there a particular size of editing community that can allow vandalism-fighting to be effective, without wasting an excessive proportion of editors' time?
I'm going to experiment with Lupin's anti-vandal tool. Some kind of bot such as Tawkerbot2 might be good too, if we can find an editor with a computer that runs 24 hrs.
Just thought I'd flag this as an issue of interest, prior to the talk and discussion. --Singkong2005 (participating online) 05:06, 1 August 2006 (UTC)
