Some standalone posts, like the premium articles in the supporter lounge and Bob Peter's guide to Jackson Hole just to name a few that I'm familiar with, are natural-born Wikis: you could just export one of these posts and you would have a fully formed article.
But these posts are the exception rather than the rule. Granted, the Export as Wiki feature under every thread post is a great place to start when creating a new article, but there is a HUGE amount of useful information peppered throughout Epic that requires sifting through multipage threads, condensing out the chaff, and adding some extra words to stitch it all together.
For example, every so often someone starts a great thread in the fitness section on some new exercise program -- crossfit, body-weight exercises, circuit training suggestions, and so on. The threads run their course, and have a lot of useful information in about every 5th or 6th post, but few solitary posts have enough depth or context to stand on their own as separate Wiki articles. But there is enough information overall in the Fitness forum for several excellent Wiki articles.
Any ideas on other tools or capabilities (other than Ctrl/C + Ctrl/V that is) for creating summary/overview/best-practices types of Wiki articles from existing content that allows you to quote or lift from dozens of existing posts as opposed to just exporting a single post to a Wiki?
