Kathie,I think the wiki as another tab idea is actually a very good idea.It would probably let the wiki be far more successful than say if it were submenu Under the "investing" or "home" tab (which was more where I thought it was getting placed). I don't know if the Fool is willing to devote such valuable real estate to the wiki, but if the Fool is going to make the effort to have a comprehensive wiki it's probably worthwhile.But having the wiki as tab does play into the naming issue since if it is Fool subdomain like that it might pay to have a readily universally interpretable name instead of more whimsical name like CAPS. Otherwise the the new user may not think/know to click on it. So maybe a straightforward name might actually be what's best. When I think of the typical potential wiki user I tend to think of the very experienced minority (contributors) and the very inexperienced (readers). Those two groups would be the bulk of your users would be my guess. The contributors would probbaly find the wiki no matter what you called it where you placed it, but the reader might need more direction.If the wiki really takes off I could see it becoming what I'd call the "4th community" at the Fool (the first three being Newsletter subscribers, the free msg boards and CAPS). There does seem to be different groups in each place with minor overlap and I'd think you'd find the same would become true for the wiki.I really think before we try to name this we need to know where it's intended to be placed in the Fool.com hierarchy, because that could change the potential branding opportunities a lot.At least it would change how I would think about it.
