1. Q: What is a forum?

A: A forum is an open chat for the discussion of questions of public interest.

2. Q:What is a thread?

A: A thread is an open chat that has a subject and a question. In a thread you can reply to the question or statement in it or add your comments about it.

3. Q: What are Authors/Replies/Views?

A: Authors are the creaters of the thread, replies are how many comments are on the thread, views are the number of people who have read the page.

4. Q: Can I post a thread?

A: That depends, right now if your reading this you are either logged in as your username or you are a guest. If you were invited to this discussion from techeduk8r you have the ability to post threads and reply to threads. You cannot post,relpy, or edit in this wiki or discussion board as a guest. You can only read it.

5. Q: Can I edit my thread after I make one?

A: So far on this website's forum you cannot. For now if you really want your thread removed please contact techeduk8r via message or email.

6. Q: Who is techeduk8r?

A: techeduk8r is the creator of this wiki.. techeduk8r has the ability to add and remove members to and from the wiki.

7. Q: I am a guest and I cannot reach this page anymore, why?

A: Most likely the page is set on a private option. You will have to be invited in to even read it.

8. Q: My friend wants to join, can he be invited?

A: Yes, for the most part. This is a discussion board and collaborative research project so we are here to discuss specific topics and contribute to research, not discuss what movie we're going to see on Friday. Anyone interested in joining the wiki can click the 'Join Wiki' link at the top of each wiki page.

9. Q: How could I get banned?

A: You can get banned for posting mean, disgusting, or immoral comments, threads, or messages. Proper actions will be taken immediately to remove the comments and remove you from the wiki.

10. Q:I have a question about Math, were do I post it?

A: You don't. Unless the topic is math, the thread won't be allowed.

11. Q: Can I edit the class wiki?

A: It is encouraged by techeduk8r that we add and edit to the class home page. Add constructively and check your work. You CAN go back and fix it if you make a mistake. Make sure everything you put is TRUE.

12. Q: Someone sends me a message, were do I check it?

A: On the top of your screen, little envelope.

13. Q: How do I know when something happens on the discussion board when I'm not there.

A: Towards the top of the screen, click the history tab. It shows when someone edits the wiki, posts a thread, or replies to a thread.

14. Q: How can I find my friends?

A: Again, this isn't a social networking website. If you know your friends in real life you can ask them who they are on wikispaces, or you can send them a message asking which classmate you are. If you are someone who doesn't know these people in real life do not ask. Cyber stalkers will be removed and blocked immediately.

15. Q: What do I do if I see someone not properly using this wiki?

A: Inform techeduk8r immediately. Depending on what they do, techeduk8r can either warn them and simply undo what they've done or remove them from the wiki if major damage or more damage continues.

16. Q: I have some more questions about how to use the wiki, were can I post them?

A: Post your question in the discussion tab for this page (at the top of this page). I will try to help the best I can!
