Fix your own contributions
Getting to FixYourWiki
So I looked at the list of BackLinks from my HomePage and was quite satisfied to see that it had grown - not through any attempt to grow it, particularly, but just because I've signed many of the various comments I've made on various pages. Sure, I don't have as many references as some others here, but given time...
Pick up after yourself, WikiAtTwentyThousand and even KillYourDarlings? Now I view the list differently. Perhaps I should try to reduce it, or at least cut down on the signed drivel [no, not by making it anonymous drivel!].
This is a reinforcement of WhyWikiWorks.
Why don't we let the wiki-programme limit the number of personal contributions to say 100. The wiki could just delete your oldest contributions when you have passed the limit. It would certainly get people to think before writing. -- MikaelHermansson
If I take a piece of year old thread mess, spend time extracting the truths, highlighting the experience and contrasting the opinions, then replace the original mess with the emerging DocumentMode page, does that count as one of my 100 contributions? If I correct someone's spelling, does that count?
[So, your idea is that Wiki should be WikiLess?. Doesn’t that kind of fly-in-the-face of what a Wiki is all about? I thought Wiki's were supposed to be used as a collaboration writing tool, not a write-less tool.]
