Secondly, wikis by definition allow editing by anyone. So how
do you protect a job posting against wilful malicious edits ?
What if I post for a Job which mentions Python experience
and then someone comes and edits "Python" to say "Ruby" ?
Then the posting is violated and no longer valid.
Do I go back and change it ? Or do I lock the post against
edits ? Then one does not need a Wiki anyway.
I fail to get the basic inspiring reason behind a Job wiki and
how it is useful apart from the common reason "wikis are cool" :)
To me it looks like a Job wiki has inherent issues. Wiki +
job posting does not go hand in hand.
