Good Style

These are general guidelines on how to use the wiki.

How to get started

Just type what comes to your mind. There is no need to spend time on imaginizing how it will show up later (and if it doesn't look nice it's probably not your fault, most often that's caused by a bug in the software). If you can't finish a text, somebody else may do it later. Don't worry.

How to Comments

Signing your thoughts might sometimes be a good idea, too. At least if you write in the first person you should do so. Even if this is not a chatroom or a Board/Newsgroup, you are really allowed to be talkative.

If you choose to comment on somebody else's thoughts (or just to extend an existing text) it is sometimes a good thing to insert a horizontal break (-----) before you insert your additions. More important is to often insert your name before or after your comment.

YourName:
  ... your comment to the
  previous paragraphs ...

Doing so usually helps discussions look more alive, and the different opinions do not screw up or confuse readers.

Good Behavior

  • Please don't strip off text and comments somebody else has written, or create a new page and fill it with your own opinion.
  • Also don't go around and annoy others; internet technology allows others to get your address.

Vandalism

Vandalism is any addition, removal, or change of content in a deliberate attempt to compromise the integrity of the wiki. Examples of typical vandalism are adding irrelevant obscenities and crude humor to a page, illegitimately blanking pages, and inserting obvious nonsense into a page. Vandalism is a violation of terms of use of BW.
