The RapidMiner Wiki is not working... and the developers have simply too much work to do. Since my last nagging tactic has seemed to work, I will give it another try.
I now think that we need a wiki mainly for writing small articles about questions asked much to often. Honestly: When such a question appears in the forum and a quick search does not help, I often have no will to write the same things again and again .. Please note that I do not complain about the nature of the questions.
Beside this I do not see the focus of the wiki on explaining algorithmns in general ... there are much better references out there, which can together with some RM specific notes could be linked in an article.
So the question is not, whether we need one (although I added this option to the poll to allow complete disagreement), but WOULD you contribute ?. It is not necessary to write complete masterpieces of literature (as the posts from Mr Haddock). Posting your process for specific tasks (after your questions have been answered) with some explaining would be a good start. This way you can give something back
So ...please vote and add some comments, too
