Modern Wiki

Schools' FAQ

This FAQ page deals with some questions that teachers, librarians and school administrators might have about the content of information in Modern Wikia, and use of Modern Wikia by students.

What does wiki mean?

The term "wiki" is derived from the phrase "WikiWiki", which is the Hawaiian word for "quick". A wiki is a web site which allows people to contribute content; see our article on wikis for more information about this.

Is Modern Wikia accurate and up-to-date?

Modern Wikia can never be up-to-date and it may be hard to be accurate. Readers are encouraged to compare articles to what they already know and improve their accuracy and detail. Articles about many of the major sciences were developed from other free or public domain encyclopedias. This provides a reliable basis upon which Modern Wikia's editors could expand.
