We have just released the new ADVFN Wiki, giving you the ability to contribute to and help build wiki pages about the companies you're interested in. We hope it will become an invaluable research tool for you all. Here is the link to the front page, have a look and add some content about one of your companies if you'd like.

The ADVFN wiki works along the same lines as other wikis (Wikipedia for instance) and the same kind of rules apply. Anyone can make changes to the pages, whether you have a subscription or not.

Put up what you think would be useful to others and make sure to reference your sources etc as you would on wikipedia. We have some pages starting to take shape already, you can see a list of them here, feel free to starta page for a company you're interested in:

Pretty much anything to do with any company could be put up on the wiki, so if you have a bit of knowledge, let everyone know!

Here is a cheat sheet for posting on this wiki:

You can find a link to the wiki on any quote box or page for stock specific companies.

From ADVFN in response to a question about content and arguing in the wiki:

"It's not really a place for arguments, more for sharing info on companies. As with wikipedia, all info must be cited from a linked source (an annual report for instance), if not it will end up being removed, by us or by anyone else. That is one of the great things about wikis, anyone can edit them, so duff data will not hang around for long.

You can be banned from editing the wiki in the same way as you can be banned from posting on the BBs, so it shouldn't be a problem.
