It was the Bitcointalk forum that inspired us to create Bitcointalksearch.org - Bitcointalk is an excellent site that should be the default page for anybody dealing in cryptocurrency,
since it is a virtual gold-mine of data. However, our experience and user feedback led us create our site;
Bitcointalk's search is slow, and difficult to get the results you need, because you need to log in first to find anything useful - furthermore, there are rate limiters for their search functionality.
The aim of our project is to create a faster website that yields more results and faster without having to create an account and eliminate the need to log in -
your personal data, therefore, will never be in jeopardy since we are not asking for any of your data and you don't need to provide them to use our site with all of its capabilities.
We created this website with the sole purpose of users being able to search quickly and efficiently in the field of cryptocurrency
so they will have access to the latest and most accurate information and thereby assisting the crypto-community at large.
I kind of like the idea. The faq and the translations could be easier kept up to date, and we wouldn't need a separate wiki and cms. You could use the same user account for the wiki and the forum. My only objection is that wikis don't look as good and are more difficult to navigate than pages created with a cms (Drupal).
It's quite a job trying to choose a good combination of forums, wikis, cms'es and and project management tools. Maybe mediawiki+smf+trac?
I like the way it is currently. Satoshi is the best leader currently and as far as I'm concerned he's the benevolent dictator for life over the whole movement, not just the Bitcoin implementation. In any case, it's not like wiki's don't have administrators who make the policies which shape the wiki. If a vastly more capable leader comes around, it'll be evident and people will follow him or her.
