World History Project is a site whose content is contributed by our users like you, and this content becomes the collective record of history. World History Project users decide what history is and how it should be remembered. Different users may have different descriptions and perspectives on the same event. That's OK. In fact, we want as many as possible.
Be thoughtful with your communication and contributions, remember who might come across them and generally use common sense
We are building World History Project to be a great resource to discover, record and share history. Your contributions are key to making this happen. The better your contributions, the better World History Project will be.
Also, remember that World History Project is public site. Anything that you contribute will be on the site for anyone to see. If you would not want to share your potential contribution with a colleague, teacher or family member, do not post it on World History Project.
It goes without saying, but we'll say it anyway: hateful, pornographic/sexually explicit, obscene, threatening or illegal content will not be tolerated.
Be respectful and tolerant of others
World History Project is designed to accommodate content from multiple users on the same event, and to let users comment on everything that is contributed to an event (for example, descriptions, photos, videos and links). Your description (or recollection) of an event may be different than someone else's about the same event, and that's OK. We want to people to have healthy conversations and debates about events because we believe that this will produce a richer overall remembrance. However, these conversations and interactions should be civil and respectful at all times.
Only upload content that is yours or for which you have the right to use
We respect the intellectual property rights of others and we expect our users to do the same. If you are not the creator of the content or the content is not in the public domain, do not post it to World History Project without the permission of the copyright holder. If you can't get the proper permission, either provide a link to the source page on another site where the content exists or do not contribute it at all.
