Everything on this site is editable by all course participants, so let me (Jared) suggest three guidelines:

First, be respectful of other people's contributions and don't remove or sabotage their content. If you think something needs to be changed, post a notice explaining your ideas about how the site should look. This site keeps track of changes we make, and I'll also periodically make a backup copy so that we don't lose everything. So we do have a backup method. But, of course, I'd rather just be able to trust our group to keep this thing up and running.

Second, give credit where it's due. If you are taking some content from another website, make sure to cite your source and put quotation marks around the material you've taken. Most things on the web are free to share in this way—as long as you don't try to pass it off as your own work.

Lastly, don't be overly possessive of the wiki. This is a collaborative project, and you should expect that the things that you post will eventually be changed, edited, remixed, etc. The flip side of this is that you also shouldn't be overly hesitant to change things up. Hit the edit button at the bottom of the page, and get to work.

Nothing will happen here unless you take the initiative and make it happen. So get started!
