    So how do I credit?
    If you use materials from this web offering, please cite the materiability research network as the source, and include the appropriate URL of the page(s) from which the materials were taken.

Many projects are the work of multiple contributors whose names and affiliations are shown in the credits-section at the bottom of each post. If mentioned the original source of the work and year of realization has to be credited.

    Now I’m confused. Can you give an example?
    If you’re using a tutorial:

    If you’re citing information:
