Cant delete history as it contains all the websites I used as references for homework I did earlier

Maybe it's just because I use IE as my web browser (Computer's screwed up and I'm stuck with it), but I can choose what to delete from my history.

Select specifically the links you want to delete.

Yeah, you can do that.
#29 to #24 - laxwarriord (08/18/2013) [-]
I seriously thought more people knew to do this, but you are the first person i have seen comment it in a very long time

Like seriously, you just have to delete the top few most recent sites visited and boom, doesnt look shifty

My teachers actually recommend this stuff. Go to Wiki, get the information, and follow the external links.

I didn't realize anyone had to be told this.

When I told my classmates this in 7th grade I was "stupid". However in high-school and college it's the norm. *Insert eye-roll here*

Isn't that the whole purpose of wikipedia?
just to help with papers and other school crap?
#8 to #2 - chaoticy (08/18/2013) [-]
Most college professors, and even some high school teachers, don't accept wikipedia as a reliable source based on the fact that anybody, anywhere, and at any time can change the information that's in the article.

most scientific pages are reviewed and moderated by professors in that area of expertise
User avatar #26 to #8 - christmouth (08/18/2013) [-]
Isn't it also because it can change? Like what it says about a specific thing today might not be there a week later?

It just seemed like a strange coincidence that I literally just commented that, and only a few hours later someone turns it into a post. I know I'm not the first or only person to do this.
#36 to #9 - satoshimiwa (08/18/2013) [-]
I probably got the idea from that post, yes. I'll be damned if I remember. Kudos to you I guess v v
#37 to #36 - aceonfire (08/18/2013) [-]
Well thank you. I guess I was kinda autistic for even posting this comment though. oh well, I'll take my red thumbs and shut up now.

Did you seriously think you were the first one who came up with that idea

You do realize that anyone with a 3rd grade level of problem solving could figure this out on their own right?

You shouldn't JUST use wikipedia's sources, you should dig down deep enough until you get a primary or secondary source. Don't use some web article it gives you. You need to login to view this link is a great site. It makes your bibliography/works cited page for you. There's also this site owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/01/ . It really helps explain how to do the formatting by hand if you need it. Also, if an idea did not come from your head, you need to cite it. If you go up to someone on the street and ask them if they know the fact, if you think they would know it then you don't need to cite. And one last thing, remember that you CAN plagiarize yourself. Never turn in work from one class as original work for another because if your teacher finds out and is a cunt, they can get you in trouble for it. You have to get original assigning teacher's and the teacher's who you plan to turn the assignment into permission to use it, technically. That or don't let anyone ever find out.

If really interested in the matter, read wikipedia to get to the source, those articles or books are great
