It sounds to me like you will have to record the data somewhere unless the
changes made by the visitors should be volatile. The volatility might be
fine if the contributers fill in a form to get some output or simply play
A popular method of achieving easily-changeable tables, which are also
edited collaboratively, might be a Wiki, though it may require some re-ad-

A Wiki, by the way, would require a database.
PS - Remember that saving data to your filestore is something that is not
allowed due to security woe. Log files are often the exception, but you

granted. Be very, very careful if you go down that path.
