00:00:04,250 --> 00:00:05,500
Hello!

2
00:00:05,650 --> 00:00:07,500
My name is Mariana and I want to tell you about Wikipedia.

3
00:00:07,840 --> 00:00:09,500
I bet you know and use it,

4
00:00:09,750 --> 00:00:12,000
but, do you really know what it is all about?...

5
00:00:12,000 --> 00:00:13,000
And how it's made?

6
00:00:13,360 --> 00:00:16,050
Although it looks like a quirky encyclopedia

7
00:00:16,300 --> 00:00:18,500
it pursues the same goal as traditional encyclopaedias:

8
00:00:18,750 --> 00:00:22,250
"Bringing all the human knowledge together in a systematic way".

9
00:00:22,500 --> 00:00:25,800
However, Wikipedia has some other meaningful differences

10
00:00:25,700 --> 00:00:27,750
to traditional encyclopedias.

11
00:00:27,610 --> 00:00:28,400
For instance,

12
00:00:28,400 --> 00:00:31,250
it is developed by thousands of volunteers

13
00:00:31,500 --> 00:00:35,500
aimed at bringing knowledge to every single person in the planet,

14
00:00:35,500 --> 00:00:36,600
in their own language.

15
00:00:36,650 --> 00:00:37,840
How is that achieved?

16
00:00:37,850 --> 00:00:41,500
Which are the rules that organise and guide ''wikipedians''?

17
00:00:41,750 --> 00:00:43,800
That's the subject of this video.

18
00:00:49,000 --> 00:00:52,800
Anyone can add or correct Wikipedia content

19
00:00:52,900 --> 00:00:55,800
but one must acknowledge it's still an encyclopedia.

20
00:00:55,800 --> 00:00:59,455
So neither original research nor essays are accepted here.

21
00:00:59,455 --> 00:01:02,000
Articles must convey universal interest,

22
00:01:02,000 --> 00:01:05,200
and ephemeral information should be avoided.

23
00:01:05,200 --> 00:01:06,950
That is the very first rule,

24
00:01:06,950 --> 00:01:08,500
or just as ''wikipedians'' call it:

25
00:01:08,500 --> 00:01:09,400
The First Pillar

26
00:01:09,400 --> 00:01:10,450
by which this encyclopedia works.

27
00:01:13,100 --> 00:01:15,600
A number of volunteers write this encyclopedia.

28
00:01:15,600 --> 00:01:18,200
People with distinct backgrounds,

29
00:01:18,200 --> 00:01:19,100
varied beliefs,

30
00:01:19,100 --> 00:01:20,450
different ideas.

31
00:01:20,900 --> 00:01:24,900
Wikipedia shall not assume as its own any particular point of view;

32
00:01:25,150 --> 00:01:28,650
but will try to cover information from all of the possible perspectives.

33
00:01:28,900 --> 00:01:31,250
That's why the second pillar

34
00:01:31,250 --> 00:01:33,250
is called: Neutral Point of View.

35
00:01:35,000 --> 00:01:38,000
The third pillar indicates that Wikipedia is free content.

36
00:01:38,400 --> 00:01:41,100
Texts are available to be used, modified and distributed for any purpose,

37
00:01:41,350 --> 00:01:43,400
as long as their source is properly attributed

38
00:01:43,400 --> 00:01:46,100
and the same "Creative Commons" copyright license is kept.

39
00:01:46,350 --> 00:01:49,600
Licensing may vary for images

40
00:01:49,850 --> 00:01:52,600
but copying and reuse is always allowed.

41
00:01:53,300 --> 00:01:56,300
For those cases, each particular license must be read

42
00:01:56,300 --> 00:01:58,500
in order to understand relevant freedoms and duties.

43
00:02:01,500 --> 00:02:04,300
So much people interacting may create disputes.

44
00:02:04,550 --> 00:02:08,650
Hence the fourth pillar states that users should be respectful with each other,

45
00:02:08,650 --> 00:02:10,200
and assume good faith.

46
00:02:10,200 --> 00:02:13,900
Tolerance and politeness are fundamental for the project.

47
00:02:16,800 --> 00:02:19,500
Wikipedia has no firm rules.

48
00:02:19,750 --> 00:02:21,250
It may seem odd,

49
00:02:20,800 --> 00:02:23,300
but this actually is the fifth pillar of this encyclopedia.

50
00:02:23,320 --> 00:02:27,000
For you to participate, only common sense is required

51
00:02:27,000 --> 00:02:30,200
and respect to other wikipedians aboard this adventure.

52
00:02:30,450 --> 00:02:32,500
Anyone can contribute something.

53
00:02:32,750 --> 00:02:34,750
Some people develop entire complex articles

54
00:02:34,750 --> 00:02:37,300
while some others fix tiny spelling mistakes.

55
00:02:37,300 --> 00:02:40,000
You can also help by creating, editing and correcting articles.

56
00:02:41,000 --> 00:02:42,000
Editions are reversible,

57
00:02:42,000 --> 00:02:46,250
so if you get something wrong it is always possible to go back to a prior version.

58
00:02:46,300 --> 00:02:48,500
Be brave! Be a wikipedian!
