I've been thinking for a while about my fanfic (yes, I am still working on it; I've returned to it since finishing my masters. More chapters should be up by next week), and I think, given that I know it will be open ended, it might be a good idea to release it onto the web in wiki format, so that anyone could edit, alter or expand it. What do you think?

Like a progressive story line?
Will you go back in and try to pull the story around, or would you be happy to have it go absolutely anywhere?
An interesting idea.

Definitely an interesting idea and it really depends upon you and how much control you're willing to give up.

It could end up great, or you could get a troll editing it, I've seen that happen on various Wiki articles.

I think the dynamic would be different from Wikipedia. On Wikipedia, everyone is working on a million different articles, which means very few are actually focused on any one. For this, everyone will be focused on this one project, which might see the Wiki principle actually work.
