Probably a more sensible place to edit/discuss the wiki format than back in the forums.

Just throwing this up as a basic structure, something to start from.

ukCaving - faq (what is caving, etc - other names like potholing - include american names?)

- caves -- uk --- dales --- wales --- peak


Peak cavern
location info
description
images

-- overseas --- France

- equipment -- best practices -- equipment guide

- history -- by area? - disclaimer

Structure

I wouldn't get too concerned about the structure. Wiki makes it very easy to play with the structure at a later date. Lets set a broad structure which we can refine later. To some extent the structure will be determined by the article that are submitted. For example if you started getting many articles on famous cavers you might want to create a biography section and move those articles into it.

My starter for ten:

Cave Descriptions

Country
Region
Cave
Caving Area

Organisations

Organisation
Club

People:

Science

Geology

Culture

Conservation
Beer

Equipment & Techniques

Sounds good - but, just for arguments sake, how about

Cave Descriptions

Country (hmm - should we limit this to UK only)
Region (eg peak district)
Catchment - eg Castleton)
Cave

Is Catchment always a reliably known quantity?

Culture

I think Clubs, Pubs and Shops would be better sited under Culture than in Organisations. Also, perhaps Conservation should become a major topic in it's own right and have an entry on the Main Page. Anyone agree/disagree.

Agreed Pubs & Shops could be in Culture. However Clubs are definitely organisations.

BTW who are you? Top tip you can sign yourself with ~~~ for your name and ~~~~ for your name, date and time.
