no_spam.pngOn your wiki account you can send mail to people. Its fun to open your wiki and see that your friend has sent you a message. Lately, people have been sending messages to everyone that is apart of the wiki. That means that what ever your writing is sent to EVERYONE that is apart of the CS wiki. This is considered spam mail. It makes your mail harder to load and its annoying to erase. So please, don't spam! -Jenni 6/7X (please go to the SPAM page if you want to comment on this subject)

What is a Wiki anyway???
“Wiki” is an abbreviated version of the full name, wiki-wiki, which translates as “quick” in Hawaiian. Wikis have been around since the mid-1990s and were originally used by software engineers to collaborate on writing software and for other technical tasks. A wiki is a Web site that allows those with access the power to edit or add content, track who made changes, and allow revisions to previous versions if needed.A wiki allows you to write to your friends that you added.(Clara 6/7b)
