The Internet Safety Project is dedicated to equipping parents, educators, and individuals everywhere with accessible solutions to the issues that arise when technology intersects with family life. Our mission is to empower through education, maximizing the positive aspects of cyber technology while protecting families from technology’s darker side.
Volunteer contributors are the lifeblood of any wiki project. We need people like you to help us create new articles and revise existing ones. With your help, we can expand and improve the Wiki and help it evolve into the information powerhouse we envision. By spending just a few minutes to research a topic and write a good article about it, you are making a difference and supporting a great cause.
So, how can you contribute? Here's a guide that should cover most of your questions. Contact us ([email protected]) if you still have unanswered questions.

Check to see what's already been written
Start by searching the Wiki for anything that's already been written on your subject. There are lots of floating "orphan" articles that contain great information but just aren't connected to the pages they need to link with. Some articles may have a page, but could still use more material.
Not sure what to write about? No problem, we've already got a list of topics that need to be added to the Wiki as well as a list of topics that need more information added to them.
These instructional pages are here to help you as you write, edit, and format your articles. If there is something you are confused about that is not covered on this list, request it and we will get it up as soon as possible.
The Internet Safety Project Style Guide is a resource for all writers and contributors, whether they need help understanding the big picture or refining small details. You can read the purpose of this Wiki or look up tricky spellings (Is it email or Email?).
