How about hosting a media wiki on this site, lots of information here but not sorted out to well. Setting up a wiki isn't much work and you could most likely integrate the forums into it. Peter Harts forum is a nice idea but it actually is a prime candidate for a wiki. Tony think about it, try it out on one of your computers (XAMPP + mediawiki) and you should be able to get it up and runnign within minutes. I think everybody (after a short period of gettinf used to) will love it.

I tried it once and it turned out to be a crap idea. They may take seconds to set up but you then have to spend hours removing spam and other assorted garbage.

Thanks both Unregister but I've the same concern with Phill104.

Actually I've already set up a WikiMedia server for experimental on our Intranet server. It's very easy to setup, to add/modify/delete a page/image is also very easy.

Anyway I think to keep it free of spam and clean from the junk information wouldn't be simple. I've heard that WikiPedia has dedicated lots of man power and budget to keep their server clean.

Perhaps we'll setup one when we're more ready but not now.
