Subject Re: Access to wiki
Date Thu, 04 Aug 2011 08:46:34 GMT
Hi all!
My name is Alex Harlamenkov.

I support the proposal Jean Hollis Weber.

The experience of creating a Russian zone of the wiki. Anonymous Members of
* Used a wiki for personal goals,
* Creating low-quality content,
* Taken away users to their sites by a references.

To eliminate the abuses created strict rules:
* Prohibiting the diversion of users from the project site,
* Requiring disclosure of participants and confirmation of their
* Required explicit publications signing the actual name of the author.

Rules have been translated into English:

All the authors of the Russian zone revealed their data:

All the authors follow the rules. All the authors are qualified.

The results of applying the rules:
* High quality content;
* The absence of war among the authors of edits;
* 3rd place among the most visited national wiki pages for 1 year

Was detected one problem. Complaints of anonymous participants to managers
of project . The rules are very strict.

The OOo-wiki is a source of information, not a collection of external links.

About me.
My profile on the wiki:

* I own deep knowledge of technology, Wiki;
* I own deep knowledge of technical terminology and legal and regulatory
framework of the Russian language;
