app /wiki

Main

This is the £5app wiki. It's very simple. It serves as a way for people to provide feedback and discuss the £5app meets in general. For example as a way to discuss what the FutureOfFivePoundApp will be.

Limitations

As this wiki is to serve a limited use (rather than being a general wiki) there are a few restrictions/limits. Whilst it does support multiple pages, only the admins (that's Ian and John) can actually create new pages.

We will quite happily create new pages on demand. We will also most likely disable editing on some pages as we see fit. This is mainly so we can avoid needing to worry about spam/abuse too much. In the future these limits will probably get relaxed, but for now we want to see how well the current setup works.

The anti-spam mechanism is very crude and would be easy to circumvent if this wiki were directly targeted. However it should provide enough of a barrier to stop un-targeted spam bots. This mechanism may need reviewing in the future, but for now should keep the wiki accessible without requiring logins or other forms of authentication.
