New Board: Wiki

Could we get a board for the Erfworld wiki under Erfworld Things? Or perhaps under website things. I think it would be pretty handy.

Couldn't you discuss the Wiki in the discussion pages on the Wiki?

The wiki /talk pages are only for discussing individual pages.

Plus you have to go to the page and actually look to see if there is anything there, rather than having a helpful little "new posts" thingy.
If I am acting as a mod, you will know it.

Anything that requires coordination between multiple pages.

It would have been handy for developing some of the templates for the descriptive table of contents.

Also, things like style rules etc. could be discussed (with stickies covering some of the info on the main page).

This is the main issue. As soon as a talkpage edit falls off "Recent Changes", it becomes nearly impossible to find. And the vast majority of things on "Recent Changes" aren't talkpage edits. That and it's difficult to know what an edit is about simply if you only know what talkpage the edit was on.

Even so, one central discussion place would make it much easier to track issues and decisions.
