There is a propoal to create a "promoted" newswire. This would mean that
articles would have to be ticked in order to appear on the default website.
This would mean that administrators would have the power to promote articles
applying the guidelines even more strictly than for the newswire, giving a
higher-quality wire of genuinely 'indymedia' style postings. These would be
those that are posted by individuals, not groups, and which actually report
on events or news, using no corporate re-posts and conforming to the ethic of
non-hierarchical, grassroots campaigning on social justice and environmental
A sample of how this would work is available through
With the open (unmoderated) newsire still avaiable:
There is a wiki for discussion on how it would work and what the previous
comments on the suggestion have been so far.
The wiki also contains links to the previous mails about this proposal. The
deadline for discussion of this proposal is the 5th of December.
