Wiki Etiquette

 

How to Be a Wiki Rock Star*

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keep safe. Never post your personal information or information about someone else. Keep things like ages, addresses, phone numbers, names of towns, or even places we work off the Internet. Remember that information on the internet, especially embarrassing information, may still be around after you've deleted it. Be careful not to post things that may come back to haunt you later. 

 

 

Be truthfulWrite things you know to be correct using facts from research from reliable, credible sources.

 

Be ethical.  As a member of this wiki and the global learning community, it is important you use information ethically by being aware of copyright, fair use, and respecting the ideas and works of others, by giving appropriate credit (citing sources) to the intellectual property of others.

 

Be nice . The most important thing to remember is sarcasm hurts. Be overly friendly and be positive. Remember ... treat others as you would like to be treated.

 

Read, re-read, and proof-read before you click ENTER. Don't rush to make that final . Once you press that button, you can't bring it back. Look everything over and use your spell check to be sure everything is accurate. When you are certain that the editing is complete, then save to publish.

 

Information please. The Internet is a great source of information but information is only useful when it is accurate.  

 

Be brief, to the point and logical. Use breaks in your text and formatting elements to make the page easy to read and understand.

 

Follow Directions. Be sure to follow the directions that are given for the assignment or activity -- be creative, but within the parameters set forth on the page.

 

Do not delete the work of others deliberately. Unless it is part of the editing process.

 

Keep it on topic - classroom or school oriented. This isn't the place to discuss afterschool or weekend plans.
