Choosing a wiki

Who to choose a wiki for a master lego index. If you have some small lego topic a wiki could be sollutions to let everybody help editing that. Here is different wikis. First choose is wikipedia which has many readers, but they have rules aginst many extern link and link pages saying that only one or two relevant External_links .
iF RUNNING OWN SERVER god reading is Comparison_of_wiki_software But that was no options i want a sollution that work over long time, not depending on me to handle a physic machine or paying a service for the day i AM out the communty the service will be stoped.
most persons have bookmarks on thier favorites pages, so only when searching for something new or when your are a beginner you need a good catalog over different times.
So there are alot of wikifarms Simons bridewell have test 14 free wikis and make the test in a wiki so you can get the look and feel. FreeWikiHosts Some have textbase GUI, PBWiki i like that befor i know there is only one password for everyone who shouold update, which only work in close groups when everybody knows each others. More wikis WikiFarms. I test JotSpot also but that is very unclear how much is free and when to pay.
WikiSpaces seems exactly what I need, and there is alot of the screenspace for you, they only use some in the up and bottom. It has text add in the right but your dont think much of it. So that day I dont pay the service the dns name is still their, the only thing is could be good to have is more manager to solve some troubles.
The Duplo things I have done is for the 10-100 interested in Duplo, but wiki-brick-links is for all person in lego community, it had some renaming pages and a move but know I think the structure is very good and easy to navigate, Non-english forum and groups are sorted under languages.

Wiki Lego links

I have looked on over +500 pages for analysed if thier is add some good value to Lego community. Everypage can't be taken in a begining.
I think everyone looking at this wick-brick-links will found some good site they didn't know, I have found many interestings site when doing a manual craw over the lego world.
Help is needed to edit, add and spread the world and to manage the space.
Lego links index and Lego train and town page.

Much interesting is the Cargo-Loading Cranky 3301 which has a turnbrick with a base of 4 x 4 knobs, if it has more than 4 knobs on upside this is what I been waiting years for, a Duplo turnbrick.
The large Duplo zoo set 4968 is there but not the big zoo 4960 which has been in the sneak previews. Many car and transport set has arrived. Now there is 3 set with a 2 x 2 turnbrick Airport Rescue Truck 7844, Thomas 5554 and to the lowest price Percy 5556 in Sweden. Many other nice lego set can be found at shop at home i like the new serie of mechas called EXO-force 7700 - 7705, 7708, 7011. I like the city ambulance 7890 and Harry Potter in graveyard duel 4766.

I build a duplo town for children to play with and for making a movie, adding my small digital camera on a train. With two extra 500W light it worked out in the first shoot after 3 houres prepering and testing.
I tried to upload the small 1 MB on brickshelf, they didnt accept it. So were to find a free movie site? In is a great resours for everything about lego movies and a index over movies, but have no storage. They like but your need the guide to get anything up there.

I put up the movie on 3 movie service here you can compare the differens free movies, downloads, tags, stats, review, ratings, no ads 10 movie 2minutes, 1000 pictures No tags,comments, search only for user names, comments, watch only online. free movies, tags, rates, (many movies not for children), watch only online.

Jusspress can store thumbsnails which go direct to jusspress and the movie or picture.
