  • Get Help - Consult WIKISPACES.COM's own HELP and VIDEO TUTORIALS to learn about it's features
  • FILENAMES and Uploading images
    • Be sure to use good, meaningful filenames before you upload anything to this site. Uploads will "silently" overwrite any pre-extisting files that share the same name. ie. Naming a file "project.jpg" is so generic that there's a chance that someone will upload another "project.jpg" later on. Try to be unique - ie. "BusinessCard Project01.jpg"
  • "Credit" your work - put your name at the bottom of any exercises or lessons you created and contributed
