Maybe this has been discussed before, but I just noticed that an Edit to a wiki post does not boost the topic to the top of the topic list similar to how a regular edit does this, so the edit can easily go by unnoticed.
Edit: Proposal is to have wiki edits create an auto-entry “User X edited Revision Y to Wiki post Z” to the topic discussion similar to ‘Deleted post …’, ‘Split topic …’ entries, that causes the topic to be bumped. If this new feature is configurable, then nothing changes to the default behaviour.
Edit 2: IMHO:
Simulate regular wiki page: Create a special locked topic with the wiki post last in the thread (and don’t forget to lock or moderation is needed if someone comments)
- Create separate topic and bi-directional cross-reference if wiki posts needs discussion
- Simulate wiki + comments page: Create wiki(s) in a normal topic, with the explicit rule that any wiki edit must be followed by a comment to attract attention to the new revision
Create wiki(s) in any topic without thinking: Just use ‘Make wiki post…’ button without additional action, topic behavior stays the same. New revisions create an entry that causes the topic to be bumped
- (Okay, a bit annoying may be that the entry may cause the viewport to jump to the end of the page)
Additionally you could:
- Make this behaviour configurable, and not the default (so nothing changes for people who are happy now)
