Re: Our own looping wiki?

The problem is insuring that all the info entered into whatever system
doesn't get orphaned after a few years.  There's a ton of information
in the LD archives, but if you start a new tool there's no way that's
going to be migrated en masse to the new system, and the incentive for
LD members to contribute to a new system is somewhat unclear.  Who's
going to host this new site?
