Question like:

is always fascinating. When we have a different area or type of Q&A with more elaborative works, then why not we put a simple link to make 'em visible enough?

Why not we put a link/button saying: [Community Wiki] on the top ribbon, just beside the user name | review | chat etc.?

CWs are now being de-emphasized in SE network. They are not quite bringing prominent benefits and they are very prone to misuse.

Looking at our CSws the top of them belongs almost exclusively to subjective and mostly closed threads. I see no intersect of CWs with high quality content, worth being prominently featuring.

  • So, what you said is: we have a kind of bogus thing here named "Community Wiki"! As a Wikipedian, I believe, with maintenance, bots, and all-seeing-eyes Community Wikis can be an excellent collection of solutions and add-ons. Why not we just encourage people to be more Wiki? – Mayeenul Islam Sep 9 '13 at 1:27
  • @MayeenulIslam It's not "bogus". It's "seemed like a good idea until it didn't". Subjectively I think that CWs been around for a very considerable time and hadn't managed to show there is a point in them in regard to core knowledge collecting mission. Maybe elsewhere in the network, but quite certainly not at our stack. – Rarst Sep 9 '13 at 1:51
