We propose to introduce a novel system of verification of the editions made on the Wiki-pages. It is based on structuring the recent editions in a well-managed database in the form of a user-friendly bulletin board. This bulletin board could be accessed at every Wiki-page. The aim of this bulletin board is to initiate discussions among the wiki-users about editions, each edition being discussed in a separate discussion room, who would come to a consensus regarding the correctness of editions. The discussion rooms would be well- managed by dedicated teams to avoid the readability issues, in case of very long threads, in terms of keeping alive the interest of new users to enter the discussion room. The corresponding final agreement would be updated for all such editions. Additionally, adaptive changes could be made in the bulletin board according to the interests of a particular account holder of Wikipedia.
