What is WikiHow?
WikiHow is an online instruction manual that allows users to create and edit articles without registering on the website. Eventually, the wiki is supposed to contain material on every imaginable topic.
WikiHow encourages users to keep these guidelines in mind when adding or editing articles:
- Be civil, supportive and friendly. Assume good faith in others. We are all here to create a great manual.
- Show empathy. Treat others with kindness and respect, as you would like others to treat you.
- Be bold. If you think your action will advance our mission, do it!
- Do not spam us. Only add external links if you make significant improvement to an article.
- Expect your edits to be modified, critiqued and improved by others. Changes should be viewed in the spirit of improvement and not as a negative criticism to your approach or capabilities.
Concerns for Parents
Because this website is open for anyone to view and to edit, it is possible for inappropriate material to be accessed.
How Can I Keep My Child Safe?
- Keep communication lines between parents and children open at all times. Let them know what is and is not appropriate.
- Help protect your child from potentially hazardous or inappropriate sites by advising them to not click on links to exterior sites and be careful with other in-site links.
- If your child is under 13, WikiHow must receive parental permission for your child to add or edit any articles.
