2.0 Management of Wiki Spaces
- Wiki spaces will reside on Brown’s http://wiki.brown.edu server.
- The wiki service is maintained by the Web Applications Group in Computing and Information Services (CIS).
- Only people with an official Brown username and password may edit wiki pages on this service.
- To make changes or additions to a wiki request, use the URL that was sent via email after the original submission.
- Wiki owners may not allow anonymous write permission to any wiki space on the server.
3.0 Naming Standards
- For course-related wikis, course number must appear in the wiki space title and will be preceded with "Course".
- Other space titles will contain an appropriate label, as determined by the service administrator, for the purpose of display organization.
