There seems to be a wiki-plus web site
http://www.citizendium.org/

""The project, started by a founder of Wikipedia, aims to improve on the Wikipedia model by adding "gentle expert oversight" and requiring contributors to use their real names."

Don't know if a site or software is available.

On the wiki question, i have mixed feelings. I personally feel fond of wikis. I resonate with the concept. I'm confident the appropriate wiki software could be located, for free. In principle i think it could work fine. But when it comes to actually doing it on the ground, i have two
concerns:

1. I think it would still need to be moderated and paid attention
to. Given that, it might actually be *less* labor for one well- organized person to receive documents and post them appropriately than for one or more folks to track changes to a wiki, check out each change and make sure it is furthering the purpose of the site. I'm suggesting that it could be
easier to play gatekeeper at the intake point, just like our public
libraries do.
