MEdia wiki si the one I have experience with, I would suggest it as well. The website is incredibly helpful as far as formatting, making scripts, and things like that go.

Sounds rad to me.  This is mostly what I use BG for... when I have a tech question, I know I can usually find an answer or an opinion using the search function.

Right now, it seems the main challenge is getting the wiki part up and running. Please post links, or start threads on ant guides you would like to do.

I'd be more than willing to help moderate and will absolutely be contributing as soon as it is up. This was a great idea.

Sorry for the delay guys. It seems setting up on BG is having some traction issues. Carbon has offered help to get this hosted on a separate domain to get things going. Expect an update soon. But if you havethe time, please write it out, edit other work. I have been :)

Thanks to Carbon, the Wiki is up!  http://www.bmx-u.com

Please contribute what you can. Even if it is posting some other work that needs editing.

Just a quick notice:

On google chrome (4.0.223.16) the menu on the left is located below the contentbox, instead of just next to each other.

Cool man.

The nice thing about the Wiki concept that basically all users are equal. Everyone can add a page, everyone can edit pages.

If you want to help out with monitoring or moderating the best way to help, other than adding content, is to 'watch' pages.

For example if you are an expert in a certain subject you can watch all the pages about that subject to make sure that they remain accurate.

If anyone can help me out with a list of good how-to sites and sites with good tech articles for the 'links' box hit up the discussion tab on the home page of BMX-U.

What we are concentrating on now is content.

Tubes6al4v is doing an awesome job uploading all of the content he has collected but we can always use more. Also he has compiled a list on the first page of this post of possible articles.

If anyone has a tech article or a mod they've come up with or just wants to post a description of a part feel free to do so. The possibilities are pretty much endless.
