Perhaps this is what you want to know:

  • A wiki is a Web site that allows users to add and update content on the site using their own Web browser. ... Wikis end up being created mainly by a collaborative effort of the site visitors. On the App Inventor forum, which uses Discourse... https://meta.discourse.org/t/what-is-a-wiki-post/30801

But how can i create a wiki post on AI2 community?

To be allowed to create wikis you must

  1. Be staff, (admin or moderator) in which case you can convert any existing topic to a wiki
  2. Have min trust to allow self wiki which is set to 3, which allows you to create your own wiki posts.

what is the minimum trust level to be staff?

Staffs and Mods are TL4 users.

Thank you all @vknow360 @dora_paz @SteveJG @TIMAI2

Just staff can create wiki posts but anyone can edit it, as mentioned in discourse, right

In short,
TL1+ users can edit wiki posts
TL3+ users can make their own posts wiki
TL4 users can make any post wiki

But TL3 users are not staff

There is difference between converting own post into wiki and converting any post into wiki.

oh, ok, i missed that sentence in @dora_paz's post.
