Here’s DokuWiki’s list of sample sites (some are better than others): http://www.dokuwiki.org/users
Same goes for some of the templates that are available here: http://www.dokuwiki.org/template
You’re absolutely right though, it depends on how any wiki is set up. I find a lot of wikis difficult to navigate because they’ll show you what’s new and/or something random then rely on you to search to find what you’re looking for. Well, if you don’t really know what’s on the site, then it’s hard to know what to search for. I also find that most of our internal wiki user’s don’t use the search feature at all. Anyway, your http://www.lgam.info site is an excellent example of a wiki that’s well setup and easy to navigate.
It’s exciting that Pam has had hosting offers. It’s my experience that serious consideration be given to a (basic) risk analysis into hosting options to ensure the information in the wiki can be backed-up and moved to another host if necessary.
I applaud your efforts in starting this discussion, and will be very happy to help get this project off the ground.
