Publish Page

This is where you can publish articles.

A new set of publishing guidelines, a new editorial policy, and a new mission statement are being worked on. Until then, the original publishing guidelines, editorial policy, and mission statement, adopted by the KC Indymedia Collective in 2002  and 2003 will be used. IP addresses will neither be collected nor stored, but this forum will be moderated.

Articles and/or comments may be hidden or edited for the following reasons:

* Repeated: content that is reposted or text that was originally a comment posted as a report.
* Non-news: rants unrelated to a recent event or action etc., excerpts from literary works, nonsense posts, and so on. Rants may in the future be relocated to a special part of the site, if the quality is high enough (mis-spelling, CAPITAL LETTERS, level of denunciation, etc.).
* Discrimination: posts using language, imagery, or other forms of communication promoting racism, fascism, xenophobia, sexism, homophobia or any other form of discrimination. White Power, Neo-Nazis, Aryan Nations people may, at the option of the Editorial Collective, have their posts run through Kant Generator or otherwise ridiculed.
* Advertising: posts with personal or product promotions. Posts that point to a webpage which sells a commercial product. Anything for sale: go to Craigslist, not here. If there's enough useful content, posts will have the advertising content removed, at the discretion of the Editorial Collective.
* Hierarchy: The newswire is designed to generate a news resource, not a notice-board for political parties or any other hierarchically structured organizations. Campaign ads will either be removed or edited, except if it's from ANSWER, in which case, the ad will be edited via Kant Generator.
* Disruptive: Contributions by individuals who habitually publish above mentioned discouraged content.
* Reposts: Articles that are simply pasted from corporate news sites. Please write something original, by all means link to articles elsewhere and quote from them but don't just copy them. An exception will be made for content which is not usually found on corporate web sites, but it must be under a Creative Commons Attribute/Share-Alike 3.0 license. Full articles may be reprinted, subject to the discretion of the Editorial Collective.
* Personal attack: Articles and/or comments that contain abusive language against other activists or site users. Please make your point without resorting to personal abuse.
* Posts in other languages than English: This guideline aims to stop the spamming of the newswire by articles that are published entirely in other languages than English. Please feel free to publish reports in the language of your choice *providing that* they include a full translation into English language, or, at least, a comprehensive summary in English about what the posting is about.

On very rare occasions, some content may be fully deleted. Past instances have included pornography and personal information such as names, addresses, or phone numbers.
