5chOLR Kudos to you! I hadn't thought of that!

This is an interesting dsiouisscn!I think there is truth in the fact that people might keep information to themselves because they fear losing power or worse losing their job. So let's say this info does not land on the wiki.There is a lot of information that people have that they would probably very willingly put on a wiki. If you are the only person who knows how to do something, there is a good chance that a lot of people will come to you to ask for your help. Such skills can also be annoying. In such cases you will gladly put your knowledge on the wiki and refer to it when people come asking.Starting at this level will improve chances of success and can very well grow to the situation where the type of information written about earlier is posted.
