Since we started playing around with the player version, it has really become apparent that we need a way for those players to provide input into the campaign. This is the way we game, and since we're trying to enter 17 years of campaign history the input of everyone is important to flesh out the details.

There's a feature request here asking for some sort of feedback mechanism from players, but I'm not expecting that to be a feature for quite some time, and wondering what we can do to fill in that gap in the meantime.

I'm asking for ideas on a collaborative way to connect with freely-available online methods of note-taking. I would like each note/section/whatever to be topic-specific if at all possible, and have a way for the GM to see what has been changed.

Admittedly email would fit these requirements, but there may be better ways that I don't know about. So far I've considered OneNote as I have an existing RPG notebook on onedrive that's shared with the group, I would add the web view URL to each topic as I create it.

My go to would be Evernote. With Evernote you can create a shared notebook with your players and they can add to it either via the Evernote website, the desktop app, or a smartphone app (it's incredibly cross platform). The downside is creating a shared notebook where the "sharees" can edit the content requires a premium account. It's not terribly expensive, but it is a subscription fee. I already have a premium account, so it's not a major issue one way or the other in my case. If you like the platform, the other option would be to have folks send you the content via email and you input it into Evernote - this would allow the shared notebook to be read, and you wouldn't need a Premium account.

The other option that is readily available and free would be Google docs. You could set up a shared Google Drive folder with your players, and they could either collaborate on a single document, or multiple documents if that makes more sense. The built in Headings and Table of Contents functions can keep it
quite organized. It also has the benefit of allowing individual documents to be shared selectively if secrets are needed to be maintained for some reason.
