## within MediaWiki (like [http://www.gardenology.org/wiki/Special:AWCforum/sc/id1/Gardenology.org.html Gardenology's forum]; or [http://www.gardenology.org/wiki/Special:AWCforum Wikia's forum implementation] - both seem to use Stand Alone Forum Extension(?)
 
## within Wordpress? extensions exist but how well do they work?
 
# Adding semantic features without some of the non-user-friendly aspects of [http://semantic-mediawiki.org/ Semantic MediaWiki]. How does SMW work with FCKEditor? Which features of SMW should we turn on? (Off: Inline semantic information is probably confusing to newbies unless handled very cleverly in WYSIWYG. On: Allowing users to view the intersection of categories would be a very useful feature. On: Project tracking.)
 
# Fix RecentChanges cache (?) so it's possible to view more than 7 days. '''Solution''': <nowiki>$wgRCMaxAge        = 13 * 7 * 24 * 3600;        // 13 weeks</nowiki> <s>a simple code change which seems to produce something more like the intended results, at [[Appropedia:Site development/RC fix]].</s>
 
# A box on the navbar letting people easily email friends about the page they're viewing. "Tell a friend about this site. Email addresses will not be saved or used for any other purpose."
 
# Map/geotagging features. (What do we want? Allow searching by distance from location...)
 
# Develop a plan for grading articles and flagging them according to accuracy, reliability, usefulness. This raises many issues, including the weighting given to ranking by regular users compared to "expert" users. The ''Flagged Revisions'' extension is likely to be important, and so is the voting extension used on http://usability.wikimedia.org/ .
