Welcome to CIEAP wiki,
Wiki is a piece of server software that allows users to freely create and edit Web page content using any Web browser. Wiki supports hyperlinks and has a simple text syntax for creating new pages and crosslinks between internal pages on the fly.
Wiki is unusual among group communication mechanisms in that it allows the organization of contributions to be edited in addition to the content itself.
Like many simple concepts, "open editing" has some profound and subtle effects on Wiki usage. Allowing everyday users to create and edit any page in a Web site is exciting in that it encourages democratic use of the Web and promotes content composition by nontechnical users.http://www.wiki.org

What wikipedia says: http://www.wikipedia.org
A wiki (sometimes wiki wiki) is a web application designed to allow multiple authors to add, remove, and edit content.[1] The multiple author capability of wikis makes them effective tools for mass collaborative authoring.[2] Wikipedia, an online encyclopedia, is one of the best known wikis.[3]
Several characteristics of wikis facilitate the multiple author capability. The most frequently used of these are:
Ease of editing: Traditionally, wikis are edited using the appropriately named wikitext, a markup language that is easier to use than html or xhtml. In addition, many wikis now provide a simple WYSIWYG editor, which allows contributors who infrequently make edits or lack technical knowledge to edit wiki pages.
Review and revert: Often other authors will not agree to a change that has been made to a wiki page. Wikis usually provide a system in which authors can review changes to pages and revert to older versions if this is appropriate.
Navigation systems: A traditional hierarchical navigation menu often does not work for wikis because multiple authors create and delete pages. To overcome this problem wikis often rely on internal links, searches and tags to aid navigation.
Permissions: Open access to wikis allows entry by spammers and vandals. Most wikis allow administrators to assign different levels of permissions to visitors to view, edit, create or delete pages. Assigning permissions helps prevent misuse of wikis but can also discourage genuine contributors.
Discussion pages: Authors frequently need to discuss page contents to reach consensus on page contents. Most wikis facilitate this by having a discussion page attached to each wiki page or some other system for discussion.

So Dear All,
Make this facility to reflect your intelligence in making CIEAP a phenomenon.
with regards,
CIO.
