For the book authored by Bo Leuf and Ward Cunningham first published 2001, see: The Wiki Way: Quick Collaboration on the Web.

The wiki way is an established set of values (wiki values from .wiki, AboutUs, MeatballWiki, CommunityWiki, and WardsWiki) and assumptions, that go into developing, editing, and using a wiki site.

This page is dedicated to explaining wiki culture and values, as well as providing some tips for getting involved.

WikiIndex, and arguably all wiki sites, work to build vibrant wiki communities; comprising individual members freely electing to participate. Members uphold the covenant to contribute constructive edits, collaborate, and build the commons.

The community acting in concert works to insulate and preserve the environment from destructive influences, ideally making destructive edits and spam rare occurrences.
