Always sign your work on the discussion page. Like this --Wal (2 dashes & 3 tildes)


  • It helps people deal with the wiki if they can tell who wrote what.
  • You can search to find everything someone has written.
  • This technique will be used for assessment of your wiki contributions.


  • If you know who wrote something, and they forgot to sign it, you can do it for them.
  • Signing does not give exclusive ownership. You can change someone else's work; just sign your change.
  • Joint authorship is OK. Everybody signs.
  • Authors can be removed, once the work has evolved beyond recognition.
  • Don't sign trivial changes, e.g. fixing typos & formatting.
  • If anything ends up being written by too many people, sign it with "Everybody".
