How to Contribute

Anyone can contribute to this wiki, all one needs to do is create an account.

Types of Users

There are two types of users:

  • User - Users can propose new articles or changes to existing articles. Anyone can become a user.
  • Moderator - Moderators approve changes from users. Moderators are granted moderator status by other moderators. The intent is to grow this list.

For transparency, the moderators as of January 19, 2022 are:

  • Jens Groth
  • Johan Granstrom
  • Diego Prats (username: diego.prats)
  • Aisling Connolly

Housekeeping Rules

  • Keep a factual and sober tone, the purpose of the wiki is to convey accurate information, not to advertise.
  • Refrain from redundancy, such as referring to the Internet Computer in article titles. This is, after all, the Internet Computer Wiki.
  • Consistent with Wikipedia, for capitalization use headline style in page and section headings (H1 & H2), and sentence style for sub headings (H3 and below). DFINITY is always stylized in all-caps.
  • Avoid the word "we", many people may later edit the article leaving "we" ambiguous.
