Wiki sites can be very powerful and useful, but because users have the ability to create and modify them, they can succumb to misuse. Linux Format cannot accept any responsibility for the material on this site. There is a chance someone could post offensive material, so parents may wish to monitor or control access to this area, in the same way it is appropriate to monitor the use of newsgroups. See LXFWikiGuidelines for info on what is considered acceptable content. If you spot something you find offensive, libellous or otherwise illegal, you can either edit it yourself and/or contact
