This page is the proof: There is a slight difference between a wiki page and a blog or forum.
In the latter you see the statements of each participant to one topic in a chain or tree structure in the order of the entry time.
Necessary edits on statements of others are only possible for admins.
I hope there is some wikimedia software module to add such a blog to any wiki. That way we could keep the history of general discussion in a documented way together with the related wiki where the discussion pages are fully editable for all.

- I agree, this may be important in that case. For those who want a chronological view of the events, I suggest to follow the successive diffs. (I'm not saying this is ideal, and there is certainly room for improvement in the future.) There is also a date and time after each signature. --rebollo_fr 18:21, 18 January 2011 (EST)
- Sorry, in the first moment I thought that things got out of chronological order. I already checked the text with the history function AFTER i wrote this comment. U. Kulick 18:36, 18 January 2011 (EST)
- U. kulick - Wikia has a on-wiki blog system as well as more free-form pages like this. If you go to your user page there is a "blog" tab. If you click that, you can create a new post. See Jeska's message about user names at User_blog:JeskaD/Information about Usernames for example. Blogs can only be edited by the poster and admins (and similarly for each comment added) and comments show as a threaded conversation. You can add a list of recent blog posts to the main page, or to the top menu - there are a few ways of tweaking it if it's a feature you would use -- sannse (help forum | blog) 19:40, January 28, 2011 (UTC)
