I have been an active member of 
http://fox.wikis.com/wc.dll?Wiki~StreamingMeetingAudio~VFP for about 5 
years.  I find that even the worst submissions are better than nothing. 
  One person gets there idea up, if it isn't clear, the document turns 
into a threa of questions, eventually the questions get replaced with a 
more clear document.  If the document is just too much rubhis, it gets 
trimmed down.

My advice:  encourage people to use the wiki.  Some will take to it and 
improve its content.  Those that don't will post a few things and move 
on.  The more people that try, the more that will take to it.  There 
will be a cost of cleaning up after those that don't, but I think it is 
  worth it in order to bring out those who do.
