I don't think that Joomla is at all appropriate to what we're trying to do here.  What we want is a wiki.  Joomla is not a wiki, and trying to pretend it is will only end in frustration.  Also, I don't like the idea of having this thing be dependent on some person from the forums.  That situation is the reason we're not using the FCDB right now.  So, I feel like it should be hosted either by Crafty, with someone at Crafty having admin access (even if they never plan to use it); or it should be hosted at a third party site like wikia, in which case it may or may not be appropriate to have someone from Crafty with admin access.

As far as what software is appropriate, I would recommend Mediawiki or Docuwiki, in that order.

What sort of space does a wiki install take up? How big is the current one?

The mediawiki download is 18 MB.  Unpacked and installed, probably ~30 MB.  Presumably the system already has PHP, a SQL server and a webserver installed, but if not then that's another 200 to 300 MB.

Once it's installed, pages should be several KB each.  For example, the Wikipedia article on Abraham Lincoln is a large and much edited page.  It is 146 KB.  The article for Pantego, Texas is fairly small and not much edited.  It is 10 KB.
