i see someone already owns tikipedia.com, tikipedia.org and tikipedia.net. i went ahead and bought thetikipedia.com and i already own tikiwonderhour.com (nod to combustible edison). after the thread i started here http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=46740&forum=1&35 i thought it would be great if there was a wiki for all things tiki! surely im not the first person to have thought of this but so far one does not exist. i dont have the knowledge in building a wiki for tiki but someone here might? we could either use thetikipedia.com or tikiwonderhour.com. of course thetikipedia.com makes more sense.

thoughts?

do you know how to build a wiki site?

something else that really gave me the idea is, all the different tiki idol styles. i thought, man it would be cool if there was a database that showed you the tikis, their origins and what they mean.

OK, I'm actually comfortable enough now to say this is going to be a thing.

We're actually surprisingly far along. Nomeus first posited the idea three days go (!), and we've already got a working website that is starting to fill up with articles and stubs. Of course the last 10% of a project always takes up 90% of the time, but I think we can pretty much guarantee that this thing will be going live relatively soon. And, I've got to say, I think it's going to be pretty awesome. Assuming, of course, we can get people to contribute.
