What are useful wiki practices?


Wikis offer a flexible collaboration, editing and publishing platform. But often people only have one model of wiki practices from the most globally visible wiki, Wikipedia.

This FAQ is to explore how wikis might be used in various development contexts, explore useful practices, share cases and stories of wikis in use, and connect with other resources on wiki practices.
