Guidelines[edit | edit source]

The first and most important guideline on any Wikijunior project is be bold. If you see something that is wrong, fix it. If you have knowledge you can add, add it.

When working on this project, remember that it's aimed at children. It's more important to be understood than to be precisely accurate on every detail. Use technical vocabulary when you need to, but don't use big words where simpler language would work. Whenever you have to use a word, list it in the glossary of basic terms, and define it. Either that, or note it needs to be defined in the glossary page. Giving definitions when such words are used is generally a good idea as well.

Please, if you can contribute to this book, do so. You can work on anything including this page, but if you want to make some significant changes please bring them up on the discussion page.

Try to restrict discussion to the main discussion page so that people can actually see your message without having to check specific pages.

For more information about how to write good content for Wikijunior, please see the Wikijunior Style Guide.
