It would be awesome if we had a calligraphy wiki that we could all contribute our knowledge to and grow over time.

That's a wonderful idea! Any volunteers for starting it?  ::)
I'll read up on how to do this but I'm not promising anything. ;)

I've made a wiki before for my family genealogy, but it has been a while.  There is sort of a "language" that you use to create links, etc. 

Erica, does your hosting service have any sort of set up for wikis?  I used MediaWiki to establish mine, and it was definitely a bare bones deal - I had to learn a lot to use it.  I didn't know if whatever software the Forum is set up through, might have a template for a wiki, too?

I have no idea but I will definitely look into it.

I just did some reading on it... I'm not sure if it's something I would pursue since the forum was really intended to do something similar. But I will do some more reading on it and see.  ;)

There are a couple already:

Reddit Calligraphy Wiki

Wikipedia Calligraphy Wiki

If we were to do this ... how would you want to see it differ? What would it offer that isn't already being offered?
