Seriously, props for all the good work here SSH, dchan, and all the other admins and mods. I'd also vote for the wiki. However this might be something you want to put out to a poll of members (or just supporters?) before working on it. (Assuming it ever gets "prioritized in the user request queue".)
Reason: people have very different modes and preferences of understanding and using internet facilities. Some people might love forums but hate wikis, or just not get the "wiki" concept. Despite the wide usage of Wikipedia, how many readers of Wikipedia actually realize that a wiki is editable by anyone?
People might feel much more empowered to add info to a "sticky" in a "forum" than to edit a wiki. Or not. Just pointing out that despite the trendiness and obvious power of wikis, they may not be everyone's cup of tea.
I see this over on Flyertalk. There is a FT wiki, but almost every airline and hotel program forum has a bunch of stickies instead which are much more widely read and updated. Inefficient, but it perhaps is more "comfortable" because it remains in the context of "forum reading and posting" rather than a context-switch to "wiki editing". People don't always context-switch well, have mental blind-spots to different tools, etc.
Good suggestion by chanwmr but worth polling the gang first IMHO.
