  • Make a revision. Click on the “Edit” tab from the top of the term page. Make the updates you wish in the Body section. Once you are happy with the edition click “save”. You will be listed in the contributor’s section in the term page. All users will be able to see the editions in the “Revisions” section.
  • Report as inappropriate. If you think the description of term is inappropriate and you don’t want to edit the term to improve it, select the “report inappropriate” at the bottom of the term page. The administrator will receive a message and will be able to remove that term if needed.
