IMC New Project
Welcome to the IMC New Project working group's wiki page.
Photo.indy as an example
A request was made for phot.indymedia as a subdomain for an indymedia project. An example to play around with some questions that could be asked.... NewProjectPhoto
The work of this group is done on the new-project email list -- you can subscribe to the list
and read the archives of the list
Clara has suggested
these questions to be asked about each new project:
- what this url is for: event / working group / etc:
- if it is for an event or: for how long, and what the ideas are for afterwards
- contact technical
- contact editorial group
- existing contacts with indymedia? like are people already engaged in indymedia?
- short introduction
- a commitment to the PrinciplesOfUnity
A suggested name for projects that are event specific is event2003.indymedia.org
for on-going projects it is projectname.indymedia.org
it has also been suggested
domain names be used.
Another suggestion is issuename.issueimc.org
and both of these names have been registered
Another suggestion is: (topicname).topic.indymedia.org
Also, since http://us.indymedia.org
has become official, it has been suggested that for North American events (dnc, rnc, etc) they be dnc.us.indymedia.org. Or something like that!
This is a draft form that doesn't actually do anything!
- GlobalThemes - please read the discussion relating to issue/theme based IMCs.
New Local, Geographical IMCs
- See NewImc for the process for new local, geographical IMCs - some elements for project IMCs should be the same, some should be different.
An idea to create http://search.indymedia.org
- a search engine that includes all indymedia sites. See NewProjectSearch
