Real Wikis and Fake Wikis

So here’s my dilemma… if I want a nice Typeform > Zapier > Wiki flow of new posts, well, Zapier doesn’t support any wikis. Not MediaWiki nor DokuWiki or anything else. So since I don’t really think Rejectapedia.com will have a lot of activity, I could just do it as a WordPress platform, using a “Wiki” WP theme. I found 4 or 5 WP Wiki themes, and 1 of them looks pretty nice.

But…

A Wiki Theme really only makes the format “look” like a wiki… and who really cares about that? On the design level a wiki is just a web page. There are a few wiki-like conventions and these themes do follow them, but any WP or other page could probably do this. What a wiki really does is more structural I think, like letting base level users edit any page, and having relatively better change tracking and mass reverts and so on. If/when you get spammed/trolled, IDK if a WordPress Wiki would work as well to clean up the mess. But it would work for Typeform > Zapier > WP-Wiki which a real wiki won’t.

And my guess is that this will be a pretty quiet wiki. Maybe just a few posts around curating a show. Then quiet again. So enabling the API auto stuff seems wise. Of course then you’re stuck with a fake wiki sorta forever. Trying to port the WP content over to a wiki at some future time seems bad. Making peeps WordPress Editors on an individual basis is no problem. But granting that power to anyone who registers, even with a bot honeypot, seems risky.

Dunno.

It’s Actually an Error Code

but it overran the info box it was in and I couldn’t read the whole thing, so it seemed like the perfect thing to type in a box here, right? Right!

The Smart Artist is very smart. And really, who doesn’t like a smart artist!?

In case it wasn’t already obvious, this is “Lazy Lorem”, that is, just filler type to see what a post can look like. I wish I had more profound things to say but I have to get watching all my favorite YouTube channels! Who needs Orlan when you have Extreme Makeover? Who needs Marina Abramovic when you have “100 Coats” of lip gloss, nail polish, etc, videos? Who needs Paul McCarthy when you have an unlimited supply of YouTube review videos of Burger King’s *Mac ‘n Cheetos”?
