I'd like to build a publicly editable online database. Each record of the database will consist of images and a few bits of meta data and maybe some Flickr-style tags. I don't have the skills to build a custom database nor the money to pay someone to build it.
Is a wiki the way to go? If so, which free (or cheap) wiki software do you recommend for someone with very little programming knowledge?
If I remove the "publicly editable" requirement, would a plain ol' WordPress blog with tags be the cleanest option?

I need to set up a community site that also has a Digg-like community news section, and am trying to find open source packages that will do the job. I looked at Pligg, but am wary of using it (reasons inside). I wonder if Drupal will work. Can you folks shed some light? [more inside]

I'd like to move my blog from Drupal to Wordpress. Is there a program out there that can help and automate the process or am I going to have to physically cut and paste about 700 entries?

What's the simplest way to parse XML data via XSLT in Drupal? The hitch is that I'm hosted at Dreamhost, which doesn't seem to support xslt_create().

I'm looking for CMS options for an alumni community site I'm building - one that has the features we want and yet still user-friendly to relative beginners. I've got a few options (Xoops, PhpNuke, Drupal, CivicSpace) but I don't know what to choose. [more inside]

I need a CMS which will let me specify which categories a particular registered user can view - e.g., A can view categories 1, 3, and 4; B can view 2 and 4; C can view 1, 2 and 5; and D can only view 5.
Does such a thing exist? Don't mind paying if that's what it takes.
