SF Editor Watch

So... over at the SFAwardsWatch site we're about to start hosting what has previously been the Hugo Editor Wiki but which we are probably going to call SFEditorWatch. This is a site where editors (aand fans) will be able to log in and edit their own or others' entries listing what books they have edited in each year, so those of us who nominate and vote for awards like the long form editor Hugo Award have more information to go on.

I'm debating what kind of system to set up for this. I'm most familiar with mediawiki but something like PMWiki might be a little more user friendly. Then again, if I set up my own system I can enforce consistency in how people input data (thus possibly introducing problems when peoples' data doesn't match my forms). Phpwiki is nice in that it has a MySQL database behind it. I've never set one up before. Have you? What do you recommend/what should I think about as I go to do this? Advise me! (Thanks!)

Should I use a wiki or some other database-driven sort of system

Don't care; either way some people will be unhappy

What Wiki Software should I use?

something else

If Something Else, then what?
