Default WIki Suggestion

I am scared that the WebkinzInsider Wiki might be edited, altered, or removed by other contributors in a horrible way. So I am thinking of letting only the trusted members edit the Wiki? It's safer for this site.

Oh and reminder for WIki:
Do not submit copyrighted work without permission! It has to be written by you!

So I think there should be a rank for "Trusted" members who CAN edit the Wiki because.. well I don't want this to happen. WebkinzInsider is such an amazing site. :]
Thanks for your suggestion. We can block accounts on an individual basis, and the Wiki software keeps track of every edit, down to a single character, so we can return them to the original state in a single click. We want everyone to have an opportunity to participate and contribute because limiting access on a grand scale defeats the purpose and usefulness of WIkis.

That said, we do have a group of trusted members right now that are WIki admins, and that group will be expanding over time. You'll be able to identify them soon, as they'll have a special badge on the forum.

Don't worry. We are monitoring the site closely and are trying to catch mistakes as they occur. Also, we can protect pages if necessary.

I agree. Haven't you seen what's been put on wiki (not wi's)? I think if you want something added, you should send it through an admin, then they can put it on if they think it's valid.

Right now the WIki is being closely monitored. I'm not staff on the WIki, but I'm pretty good at editing pages and using the features they have for Wikias. They are able to track down every edit like Justin said and revert them, and if there is someone that is causing trouble they do have the ability to block them from editing, just like the regular Wikipedia.
