What is Wikiprogress?
Wikiprogress is your online resource for information on progress. This innovative platform gathers experts and the general public with one clear objective: sharing knowledge on issues related to progress for a better understanding of the situation of progress around the world. See also the page about Wikiprogress.
What is a “wiki”?
Wikiprogress uses a specific technology (a “wiki”) that allows users to easily build, edit and link web pages. Think of a “wiki” as a large black board, where (authorized) users are given chalk and sponges to start writing up whatever they think is important to others, or to edit already existing articles as they deem necessary. In a “wiki”, information is organised into “articles”, which are grouped by "categories". These can be edited or new articles can be added by registered users, without needing an external webmaster.
How can I comment on an article?
If you like to comment on an article, click on the "discussion" tab on top of each article. If other people have already commented on a particular article, you will find these entries on the discussion page that will open up. Feel free to participate in an ongoing discussion (by clicking on "+" to add a comment) or start a new discussion thread. Referring to the discussion page may be particularly valuable if you intend to make changes to an article, which you would like to discuss with the author (or other users) beforehand. Needless to say, you can also contact the author of an article directly by clicking on his or her name (which you can find by looking a the "history" of an article) and leaving a message on this person's talk page. In order to give your thoughts wider visibly, the discussion page may nevertheless be the better option.
No matter how you decide to voice your opinion, please let mutual respect be the guiding principle of your actions. Although all Wikiprogress contributors know that their writing may be edited mercilessly, it is easier to accept changes if the reasons for them are discussed beforehand.
How should I use edit summaries?
If you change an existing article, clear edit summaries and transparent explanations are highly appreciated. Other editors need to understand your actions, and sometimes writing a little summary even helps you determine if a specific edit was really justified. Please state what you changed and why. If the explanation is too long, elucidate on the discussion page. It is a fundamental principle of Wikiprogress that all registered users can edit articles, so there are a lot of changes to watch.
Neutral point of view
Write articles from a neutral point of view. This is a fundamental principle of Wikiprogress, which allows us to make a fair representation of the world around us. Even if material is verifiable, it is still important to put it into a balanced and representative form so that it conveys a fair impression of the views of the many significant viewpoints on a subject.
Articles should contain only material that has been published by reliable sources. Editors should cite reliable sources for any material that is challenged or likely to be challenged; otherwise it may be removed by another community member.
No original research
Articles may not contain previously unpublished arguments, concepts, data, or theories; or any new analysis or synthesis of published arguments, concepts, data, or theories that serves to advance a position.
