A standard reply for possible volunteers situated in Scotland so far:

Hi to everybody interested in participating at Imc Scotland.

Participating at Imc Scotland:

1.) Contributing articles to the website

At the moment the main focus is the administration of the website. The main Imc Scotland page can be found here:

To publish go to:

To sign up, rate articles and edit your own post, create a login here:

The intermediate Indymedia website, which is a subsection on Indymedia UK.

To publish you just click on the fat red button floating on various parts of the website, most likely and in future it can be found on the upper right side of the webpage. to publish you go to: don't be afraid of the security certificate which pops up when going to the webpage, it just alerts you that it is a secure connection (or should be) for transmitting your information.The information is then made public on the website.

After you published your article, it should take only 2 minutes till your contribution appears in the newswire on the right side under the publish button and the search box, with the choosen headline, which is automatically transformed to be a link to the full article. With your article, you can also upload media files, such as pictures, audio files and videos. However, media contributions take a while till they appear in the article, e.g. picture contributions might be taking longer, up to an hour till they appear. This is solely due to the technical solution behind it. A placeholder should indicate that the media file is fully uploaded to the server and worked on and optimized.

2.administering the website and managing contributions

Your article gives readers the option to add comments under the article. Posts or comments which violate the editorial guidelines can be administered by the imc-volunteers involved in administering the site. Generally if people push the limits in being unfriendly to each other, postings can be made invisable on the website. show the editorial guidelines. If you want to get involved in the administration of the site, you might want to get a training and a login.It would be best to have training as face to face on a one to one basis. So contact me if you want a proper training and a log-in.
