Wiki Etiquette


Keep safe. Never post personal information about yourself or 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 truthful. Write things you know to be correct using researched facts from reliable and credible sources. Give a reference or footnote.  Cite your source when appropriate.


Ask first, then give credit. Ask an artist's permission to post their photos, pictures or pieces of writing. Never use first and last names of people that could identify them in a photo or video. You must also ask permission when using an idea from a friend, a family member, or even from an acquaintance. After you have his/her permission, then you must ask if you can post his/her name to give him/her credit. If you know anyone who is breaking any part of this rule, it is very important to tell someone who can help immediately.


Be nice. The most important thing to remember is sarcasm hurts. Be 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. Improve your posts by writing them in Gmail Documents. After editing the document highlight the document, use Control C to copy the document, open the wiki page, and use Control V to paste the document into the wiki page.


Information please. Use the internet, but check the accuracy of your information. 


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 for the assignment -- be creative, but within the parameters set forth on the page.  If you have doubts, check with your teacher before you post to the wiki.


Do not delete the work of others deliberately.  Follow the directions.


Keep it on topic - classroom oriented. Do not use the wiki for personal non-school non-assignment purposes.
