A good place to post the results of your best practices is the Tips section of the SMW community site :
I have been thinking about posting some tips about best practices to that site for a while now, but I haven't found the time to do so.
Here are a few things that I found while developing our SMW implementation (not sure they qualify as best practices but they did help).
- Use Semantic Forms. SF should be mandatory :)
- Create a top category for Semantic Classes. I called mine 'Categories'. It holds only categories used to define a 'Is-a' relationship. Doing so has at least two benefits : 1- You can do a query on your core content by restricting it to the 'Categories' level. 2- You can define other categories outside of that structure for whatever your system needs.
I will try to find more tips from my notes

Subject: [Semediawiki-user] Best practices wanted...
I am putting together a presentation on best practices for SMW. I'd like to focus this work on pragmatic methods of developing a semantic wiki, this would include planning, design, leading to early implementation/prototyping etc.. I'd also like to include social/community aspect if I can.
Any contributions in the form of links, tid bits of knowledge, war stories, etc.. would be welcome. In exchange I volunteer to post some of my work and/or contribute to a best practices area on whichever SMW website is appropriate.
