Hi Beth: I'm one of the founders of Muppet Wiki, and I think I can answer some of those questions about how wiki communities magically happen.

The most important thing, which a lot of people don't recognize, is that you have to treat your contributors like they're people. You have to welcome them, help them, and encourage them. People who work on wikis are doing the most outlandish thing -- spending hours adding to a site without getting paid or even having their name attached to their work. People who host wikis should never stop telling our contributors how beautiful and amazing they are.

I've written down some specifics about how to do that on my Wikia user page, so if anybody's interested, you can see it here...

Anyway, thanks for writing about Muppet Wiki. I hope you come by and say hi! -- Danny
