This is something strange. I have made one topic a wiki post and kept it open. Then inside another browser I login with a different user id. I edited the wiki post and then I checked the forum on my admin ID. I did not received any notification whatsoever that could tel me that someone actually contributed to the post and edited it? Am I missing something here or some setting is required. Why are we not receiving notifications for wiki post edits?
Is the original author of wiki post the sole publisher?
Does wiki posts means, the community edits the post and the original author is the only one accepting the edits and publishing the post with new edits?
I like this idea, and think it could work well in my community (we’re considering moving our wiki from mediawiki into discourse). Is it something that would be considered as a PR to core, or should I be thinking about a plugin?
Alternatively, is there now a better solution for allowing people to “watch/track” a wiki post for changes?
Also there is a problem that needs figuring out notification wise. At the moment these “admin posts” get no notifications, I don’t want to play with that, it would be very very high risk of “pointless information flood” but it leaves open the problem of “how can you tell that people have mucked with a wiki you are tracking”
Not knowing the internal structure this may be a crazy, complicated idea, but…
Could the admin posts be given an optional parameter (default false) that when true acts like a standard post for notification/tracking stuff? Then no existing admin posts will change, but wiki edits could give the true parameter.
