A working definition of Open Publishing
What / How:
Any active Cleveland IMC (CIMC) collective member can nominate a feature story for publishing in the "center column" on the cleveland.indymedia.org website.
Approval requires minority support -- an additional two supports (a second and a third) -- at which time the Publishing Working Group will promote the story to the center column.
The nomination and secondary support process will take place via the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list.
Both nominators and secondary supporters must be based in the "Northeast Ohio" region.
If a nomination occurs outside of that area, it still may be considered for publication as a feature, but requires an additional vote of support from a local-based IMC collective member
(thus, a nomination from someone in Washington D.C. would require three (3) additional "seconds" to be approved).
Stories may be blocked in the same fashion if a minority views a certain feature directly violates the mission of the CIMC
