Might sound like a nightmare, but what would you say if we generally start a second wiki from the scratch? why?
So in software engeniering, it’s usual to abandone a bad architecture and to start a new try by inserting canabilized parts of the old one. The current wiki lacks in very important aspects where it (IMHO) didn’t get better the past years:
- tags catalogue
- newbie guide
- software catalogue
- external pages as switch2osm.org, learnosm.org
Thats basiccaly the result of it’s age and the ways we walked for a long long time. As bad code, parts had been added and added again, the cleanup stopped etc.
Maybe we could use more powerful technologies now (you heared about Wikidata?) that fullfil our today requirements better and that would help the community to get an up to date and multilanguage documentation and incubator for personal ideas. A solution, that will be more accepted and keept up to date by the crowd?
