I don't quite get this idea of OOC newbie groups via the IC wiki
Can you explain some more?
Oh man. Is this what you mean? Brain just clicked.
What if...inside TheMind wiki...
You could make certain 'levels' of access on each topic. Maybe like titles currently exist.
..if joe newbie asks the know-it-all / grid about 'Withmore Wholesale' they get a description of the place and where it is, maybe who the owner is.
..if joe supernewbie with an IC item like a Guide Map or something asks the know-it-all / grid about 'Withmore Wholesale' they get a description of the place, where it is, and the OOC commands to use in order to start making runs and that they need an approved history to work there
..if aspiring decker Joeboy with some decking skills but and a rig accesses the know-it-all / grid and asks about Withmore Wholesale' they get the description, location, owner's name, employees' names, and what types of goods are being delivered to each place on the shipping list
..if l337 Cowboy with mad decking skillz and a souped up rig accesses the know-it-all / grid and asks about Withmore Wholesale they get the description, location, owners name, employees' names, what goods go where, AND what crates are out and about AND who is running them currently
And then they go find the person's SIC alias
And then they cc them and ask their location, pretending to be WW-ops
And then they pass the word to their buddies who go an intercept the courier and capture the crate
And then the group successfully stops all crates from going to Korova Milk Bar, thereby contributing to shutting the place down for good.
Yeah I'm pretty sure that the wikipedia format doesn't allow for that level of integration...though perhaps there's a way to make the MOO interpret certain headers within the wiki. Like ==average== would get caught by the MOO as being not text but something else, then a function internal to the MOO would compare the character requesting's rigging stats against ==average== and decide whether to continue displaying the next up level of information.
