if not too hard to implement, it would be nice to get at the most one 
"Point" per article a day. This would help at least to solve the 
step-by-step creating problem.

In the long run it would be very helpful to mark articles as "well made" 
and to give the editors (hard to decide who is an editor) of this 
articles some extra karma. The decision which articles are well made 
could be done in the same way as planet maemo or maemo.org/news: Thumbs 
up or down /what also could bring some karma to these voters).

All in all it seems to be no easy how to handle wiki edits but I think 
it it very important to do this because in my opinion the wiki should be 
a knowledge base with the highest quality within the maemo community.

Ciao Uwe
