Hi Jennifer

We have Confluence installed running as a pilot system.  Wikis are proving popular and a few have been set up, but we're still working out what role they should play alongside everything else.  Overall Confluence is pretty easy to use, but security settings and administration needs some careful setup and can be confusing.

We have had the odd problem with the WYSIWYG editor sometimes corrupting markup - dropping spaces at random can really mess up links and other formatting.  I haven't found references to this type of problem on the developer site, so it may be related to our installation or network.

I'd be interested in anyone else's experience with Confluence.
