comment Patterns for keyboard accessible drop down lists
all the drop downs I've tried do not open when using the arrow keys, they just move the selection without showing the list. Can you give a specific example of an app or system that behaves in this way?

comment What should be considered when launching a Wikipedia-esque site to make it as useful as possible?
content structure will depend a lot on the domain. You'd be better off asking your users. The best thing to do when setting up a new wiki is to give users some instruction about wikis, maybe a presentation.

Andiaz I think you misunderstood @THJ, you can run MediaWiki (the code used to run wikipedia) on your own servers. Also, you could take a look at Wiki Matrix to compare the different wikis available.

Can you be a bit more specific about what you are missing? You've described the system fairly well so it doesn't seem like you have a problem.

@AlexejFroehlich it shouldn't forget values. Even with the single input you could have it switch the inputs so if you changed your mind and then went back to the previous choice it would bring back what you'd previously entered.

@wael34218, you could always arrange the radios horizontally and have one textbox which makes it clear you only want one value.

I'd put the text note above or to the left of the fields to increase the likelyhood the user will read it. I'd also make it as short as possible. "One of"
