Good news. Climategate.com will very soon embark on building the most comprehensive wiki for information on climategate, and truth in climate change data.
It will not be a wiki that is open to everyone to edit–that just creates havoc. Instead, although any person will be able view the information, it will be edited only by invited and approved skeptics. Yes, skeptics only. Unlike Wikipedia which pretends to be unbiased, we will not hide our bias…for the truth. And we’ll be keeping the number of editors to a manageable number.
That being said, we have no experience with wikis. The software (very user firendly, unlike MediaWiki (which runs Wikipedia) has been selected, and is currently getting set up. We will provide a basic structure, and then let the editors go to town on it, keeping hands our off as much as possible (others are smarter than us, and we got enough work to do anyway). We’re not going to waste time getting the “look” of it perfect, we just want to start building information. The structure will be dynamic, as we learn about wikis along with some of you.
So, here’s what we need from readers now. We’d like some ideas on how to set up the basic structure of the site (think of a table of contents), and think about what types of information we should set the content structure up for. Then, once we get the structure pressty settled, we’ll open it up.
Some of the obvious things are:
Common questions (like we have in our Q&A section)
- Scientific principles
So, please think on this, and post in the comments what categories of information you think should be in the Wiki and how you think it is best structured.
Hopefully, we’ll get it up and running next week.
