Wiki Ed certainly aims to be flexible so that an assignment fits your needs and the needs of your students. We normally require a timeline for a course, though we can make exceptions on a case-by-case basis.

The reason we require a timeline on the Dashboard is two-fold: 1. It triggers internal tools that allow Wiki Ed to track the progress of the assignment, thus providing timely support. 2. The milestones are based on the successful courses we've supported over the last 7 years, and the steps help students transition from never having edited Wikipedia to adding productive content. It sounds like the first may not apply to your students, but the second still does. Let's structure the timeline to have steps that do not depend on a due date, which is up to you for each student. That way, they'll still have a helpful guideline along the way.
