How do I cite a Wiki4CAM article in a paper?

Cite it as you would any other web page in accordance with the normal citation practice the publication you are submitting the paper to follows. Citing the individual authors is not necessary, but you should at least include the date on which you retrieved the article (and ideally the full timestamp from the history).

Automatically generated citations in several standard styles are available through the "Cite this article" link in the toolbox.

See Wiki4CAM:Citing Wiki4CAM

Why are the backgrounds of some pages light blue and others white?

Encyclopedia article pages (mainspace) have white backgrounds, while dynamically generated special pages, talk pages, user pages, and about-Wiki4CAM pages have light blue backgrounds. This is intended as a visual cue that you're not in the encyclopedia per se.


What should I do when I find a factual error in Wiki4CAM?

You should correct it. See Wiki4CAM:Contributing FAQ. Volunteer contributions from those who believe knowledge should be free for everyone make up Wiki4CAM, and the community is always ready to welcome whomever would like to join.

Because Wiki4CAM is an all-volunteer project that anyone can edit, errors or omissions can and do creep in. This should be kept in mind when reading; the very nature of Wiki4CAM means it should not be trusted completely. Articles frequently contain citations of authoritative works where a reader can verify the information found.
