If I wanted to make a site (or an internet) where anyone could create a page and every page was editable. What are the main editing models I could use?

- page creator has to approve edits (probably more system than I want to create)
- version control so you can go back through each version of a page (doable but I bet people rarely go back much)
- edits automatically create a new page (fork). maybe my top pick but new forks aren't necessarily discoverable.

Anything else I should be looking at?

Maybe:
Any edits create a new 'version'. Page creator gets to pick which version is pinned (version seen by default when you visit the page). Edits by page creator are pinned by default...

@grantcuster you should be either restricting access to a limited set of users or implementing moderation. It's a pain, but protecting against abuse absolutely has to be part of the initial design

@phooky @grantcuster this sounds like a wiki. Looking into how various wikis handle this issue would probably yield helpful alternatives
