Hi Dennis, you seem to be mistaken about the nature of the WikiWikiWeb. As you'll probably notice when you visit Wiki again, most of your pages have been deleted. It's not a site for "quick&fun site-building", it's a community with some quite different customs you may be accustomed to. I would suggest you read http://www.c2.com/cgi/wiki?NewUserPages.

Thanks Johannes for your comment.
I agree that Wiki is more live commutity than static Web-site.
And pages are updated quickly.
Nevertheless you may easily find the pages, which were not updated since 2000.
I think if audience of a Wiki-page is not huge then the page won't be updated too often.
Of course, if you put your comments to WikiWikiSandbox then the comments will be deleted during some hours.
But if you create your own WikiPage than it will live much longer.

BTW, my current Wiki-page is:
It seems nobody updated it yet. :-)

It seems, that Johannes Gijsbers is right. Wiki is not for quick site building.
Wiki is like a forum. An unified forum: you shouldn't discuss anithing else except Wiki community already discuss. It's like communism: you must do that others do. Not more, not less.
I thought that Wiki is more usefull. I was wrong.

So, if it is too easy to delete somebody's work, most probably such place is not for creativity.
