- Nothing in SPIRIN can be changed anonymously.
- Unlike Wikipedia, SPIRIN allows to change and add pages only to members who are logged in.
- All SPIRIN members are identified by their full name. Nobody can register themselves.
- SPIRIN is a community of scholars, students, and professionals. Other than in many web-forums all members are registered by an administrator under their full name. Members introduce themselves to the community by a personal page.
- e-mail addresses are never disclosed.
- SPIRIN knows your e-mail address in order to be able to send messages about changed pages and to send you a new password, should you have forgotten your old one. Spirin members can reach each other by an e-mail button, but addresses will never be disclosed.
- Some selected pages are readable (but never writable) to the whole world, without login.
- Think of scientific articles that already have been published elsewhere, encyclopedic articles that are not intended to be published elsewhere, information about SPIRIN, help-texts. These pages can be found in Category:public. Only certain privileged users may make a page public and change a public page.
- Most pages are readable and writable to all registered SPIRIN members.
- This is the default. Please understand that all changes made are registered with the moment of change and the full name of who changed it. Each page has a tab "view history", where you can see who did what. Please also note that all changes can be undone easily.
- Access to an article, project or the like can be restricted to its authors.
- Use the tab "edit with form" and check the option "access to autors only".
- Access can be restricted to certain SPIRIN members per page.
- If you want to keep the contents of a page absolutely secret you can restrict access to yourself and some colleages by listing your and their names as follow. Make sure you do not exclude yourself from such a page by omitting your own name!
