IMC Liverpool is an open-publishing platform for news, issues, actions and analyses, reporting on grassroots, non-corporate, non-commercial social justice, environmental and political issues. IMC Liverpool is maintained by a network of media activists and groups. IMC stands for Independent Media Centre.
IMC Liverpool is dedicated to the open publishing ethos. This site explains how content on the site is generated and how you can contribute.
IMC Liverpool volunteers are administering the site and collaborate in the production of features. Contents on the newswire and calendar are generated by anyone who wants to contribute. The open posting guidelines below have been created to ensure the integrity of the site.
Occasionally we are forced to hide postings offending the open posting guidelines. Because of the 'real time' nature of the newswire, it is not possible to monitor its contents 24 hours a day.
Articles and/or comments may be hidden for the following reasons:
IMC Liverpool adheres to the open publishing ethos. Everybody is free to post on the newswire or add comments to newswire articles. However, the IMC Liverpool volunteers take the liberty to hide postings, which are offending the open posting guidelines. Hidden postings and comments are visible in the View All Posts page. You can click here to read them.
Everybody can add their own comments at the end of each article. Comments are subject to the guidelines for hiding. They can be used to:
Corrections and rectifications can be given prominent status by contacting the IMC Liverpool features list with the qualified accurate information.
Please list all announcements and upcoming events on the Calendar. Just click the calendar link on the left hand column, on top of the newswire.
The features on the middle column of the IMC Liverpool website reflect postings to the newswire. Features are highlighting specific issues to make them more accessible. They are put together by volunteers communicating on the Features list.
Any individual can join the features list and propose a new feature for the middle column. A proposal can take the form of an idea or a completed feature. Completed features are usually between 50 and 80 words and include at least one link to the newswire, preferably also links to background information. If no one objects to the feature proposal within 24-hours, and if it is completed, it will be uploaded to the middle column. The 24-hour rule ensures that everybody can contribute to the middle column and allows time for collaborative improvements and considerations.
IMC Liverpool is an interactive site offering inclusive participation. All postings to the open publishing newswire are the responsibility of the individual authors and not of IMC Liverpool. Although IMC Liverpool volunteers attempt to ensure accuracy of the newswire, they take no responsibility legal or otherwise for the contents of the open publishing site.
