[Gerald Richter and Neil Gunton mused over to Wiki or to not Wiki]

If the Wiki in question retains revision history (especially one that
allows users to access that history via the web), and also gives the
ability to screen updates for everyone but the editing IP/user, one gets
the best of both worlds.

I'm pretty certain I've seen Wikis that could do that.

I think I've also seen a Wiki that allowed anyone to extend, but only
the original author of a page or the moderator could edit previous text.
This does not scale well; as the active updating users outnumber the
moderator to an increasing extent, it becomes a battle to perform the
edits that users indicate need to be done with prior text.  Eventually,
the moderators give up, and one gets a mess of pages that ramble on and
intermittently correct and re-correct themselves.
