TWiki Success Story of Skotos
is a private, semi-private Wiki that uses Twiki, used by Skotos
Skotos is a small online game company. We've been using it for 3+ years now (since May 1999), for everything from internal corporate documents, contractor and game designer documents, and in the last two years player documents for one of our games.
As of December 31 2003, we have over 15098 separate wiki documents:
- Private Internal corporate documents: 1235 pages
- Semi-Private Game Builder/Designer documentation: 521 pages
- Private pages for 7 teams of game designers: 5136 pages
- Public and Semi-Private pages for players of Castle Marrach: 8206
Using Twiki has been a huge boost for Skotos, which is very small and is very dependent on outside contractors and volunteers.
Our experience Wiki is very different then the typical Wiki:
- Our Wiki membership has been fairly independing of both the Twiki community and Wiki communities in general. I don't know if any of our members participate in any other Wikis, but if there are, they are very few.
- Our usage started private wiki used for corporate purposes (although a very creative oriented corporation)
- Our usage grew to include some outside teams (contractors game designers) which also desired privacy.
- Finally, our usage grew to include our customers, who needed private areas for their private groups, clans, clubs, etc.
