Getting to know Wiki
I spent some time this week reading through the history and talk pages of the Longy Wiki pages, as well as the pages for other Boston area music schools. I did that so to get my bearings in the Wiki world, before I start contributing anything to the existing pages. Among other things, I learned about "peacock terms"-- words that "reflect unqualified opinions", which Voceditenore helped us to correct on the Longy wiki page. However, I did spot numerous occurrences of peacock terms on the pages of our neighboring music schools, and plan to raise my hand at those as soon as I figure out how to use the right editing codes.
