am i supposed to be able to edit your documentation?  visit: http://api.biblia.com/docs/Terms_of_Use i stumbled across the edit button on that page and clicked it.  I then put in the text "I don't think I am supposed to be able to edit this"  and it apparently edited your page.  I just wanted to alert you becuase I'm guessing you don't want the general public editing your pages.

It's a WIKI.  That's the nature of the beast.

Note that you can't edit unless you're logged in. 

This means they can trace you .  Devil

And being a wiki means they can reverse it with a simple click.

Truth Is Still Truth Even if You Don't Believe It

Check the Wiki

Yes, but the terms of use should be locked, at least.

i don't have a problem with them tracing me at all.  i just wanted to alert them that possibly there is a weakness in the wiki.  perhaps sensitive pages such as the terms of use should be handled differently.  Don't most wikis offer you ACL levels?  certain pages can only be edited by certain level of users?  i don't think you can just go in and edit wikepedia's terms of use.

That got me thinking... I wonder if my credit card's terms are on wiki...?  Stick out tongue
