"wouden" instead of "wilden" would also be correct here.

Wouden zijn BOSSEN. :D

The 'best' (i.e. formal) form is only wilden.

Wouden is informal...although that doesn't seem to stop it from being used.

True, but wouden is still correct! (Wilden zijn mensen! 3:D ) I always use wouden in spoken language, can't get used to wilden ':D

It is correct (and accepted), but informal.
