Theme Park Insider
The page "New 'Wiki' Articles on Park Guide Pages" seems to imply that, at least back in 2005, there was once a wiki there. Alas, there is apparently no longer a wiki at that site -- apparently the wiki that was there is now dead.
Theme Park Insider is a consumer's guide to the world's top theme and amusement parks, written and maintained by consumers themselves. Founded in 1999 by journalist Robert Niles, ThemeParkInsider.com adopted a wiki format for its listings in December 2005.
Logged-in readers may edit the descriptions on each listing page for the parks, rides, shows, restaurants and hotels the site covers. In addition, each listing page contains non-wiki content, where readers may cast votes and post comments on the listed venue.
Wikis are also used to power "evergreen" feature articles, including:
- How to Save Money with Theme Park Deals and Discounts
- What's New or Under Construction at Top Theme Parks
- Theme Park Safety Tips
- How to Contact Various Theme Parks
In each case, readers who are unfamiliar with wiki technology, or unwilling to edit someone else's work, may still contribute to the page by appending a comment beneath the wiki itself.
ThemeParkInsider.com is written in ColdFusion, and provides an example of how a developer can use wiki technology within a content management system to provide group editing functionality in a reader-driven news website.
