All knowledge in Knowlative can be either Modifiable or Non-Modifiable.
- If you choose your knowledge to be “Modifiable”: every other user will be able to update your version of the knowledge. You will remain as “First contributor” (Author) of the Knowledge and every other user that updates the contents will become “Contributor”. Browsing the history of the Unit of Knowledge your version will be always available. You should assign this feature to your Knowledge if it is “Common” knowledge and, even if it is an original idea, if you want it to evolve faster with the contribution of the community.
- If you choose your knowledge to be “Non modifiable” only you will be able in the future to update this knowledge. Every other user can create a “Clone” of you knowledge (only 1 clone is allowed) and modify it. Once the 1st clone is created it is “Modifiable” and anyone willing to update that knowledge can update it. You initial version will not be touched. You should assign this feature to your knowledge if it is an original idea and you prefer to keep it as you thought it.
