Dotted wikis, hidden wiki. The public face of Perlmonks might itself be called a wiki. Certainly wiki-ish.

So perhaps, the question is not "creating a wiki". But rather...

Is there is yet more untapped Perlmonks wiki goodness which can be raise to public view for the enlightenment of the flock?

As for whether they would come, good question. Two thoughts. They come to the other languages' sites. And they are already coming here.

One might think of this as adding a less structured corner to Perlmonks, for the whatever assorted stuff doesn't fit neatly within existing strictures, er, sections.
