I was wondering if the Affinity team had ever considered creating a Wiki that could be edited by forum members (and the Affinity team, of course).
There must be all kinds of really interesting and useful information hidden in old forum posts that could be brought to the surface in a Wiki.
Tutorials that are more pages down the list than people generally want to scroll; useful tips that are given in the middle of discussions; ideas about good workflows that are spread across many posts: these sort of things could be made more easily available to users in a Wiki rather than people having to scroll around the forum in the hope that they can find something.
Example pages could be:
* How to prepare a document for ePublishing (with a section for each publisher);
* Tips and tricks for creating large photo books;
* How to optimise your Preferences for low-power machines;
* A guide to using the forum (what the various buttons do, why certain image uploads don’t work, etc.);
* An explanation of colour management within the Affinity workspace (with sections for examples on specific hardware);
* etc. etc.
I feel sure that many of the forum members would be happy to contribute to putting something like this together.
There is a lot of very useful information scattered around this forum that could be better served to the community in a Wiki rather than people accidentally coming across it via a link from a link from another link that someone mentioned in passing. It would be a shame if this information was lost purely because it got pushed too far down the list of posts for people to find.
What does anyone else think about this? Good idea? Bad idea?

Ideas like your one is never a bad thing.

Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.

These are not my own words but I sure like this quote.

Thanks for your replies.
I was starting to think that I’d posted a silly idea that everyone was simply ignoring to spare me the humiliation.
Good to know I’m not the only one who thinks it might be a good idea, if done properly.
