Wiki Rules

How to play wiki - some guidelines…

The "rules" of this wiki are always to play nicely with each other.

Wikis in organisations are still new to most of us and the rules that apply to Wikipedia don't really apply with internal wikis. Internal wikis are for helping the organisation with its corporate memory.

My suggestions are:

- use the wiki to store informal information and have only links to formal information.
- encourage input and ease of authorship
- restrict the main page but not the subpages
- encourage ownership and do not censor, go back to contributor and ask them to clarfiy their content (ie take ownership of their posts)
- make comments as part of a "hive consciousness" - make comments that will live beyond your time at the organsiation and be useful for others in your situtation now and in the future.
