Following are the current procedures for the support and management of the wiki service provided by CIS.

1.0 Support

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.
