From Metagovernment - Government of, by, and for all the people
:''[[Es/Participa|Página de participación en '''Español''']].'' Following are ways you can '''participate''' in the [[Metagovernment]] project. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate. Currently, this project is organized as an [[adhocracy]], which means you are free to act in whatever way you think will help the project. ==Discuss and plan== ===Join the list server=== If you wish to contribute to the Metagovernment project (or just "listen in" on our conversations), please visit the [http://metagovernment.org/mailman/listinfo/start_metagovernment.org list server signup page]. * After joining, please introduce yourself to the list and provide a link to your user page on this wiki if you have it. * You are encouraged to familiarize yourself with the list server [[archive]] before jumping in with questions and suggestions. However, we know that analyzing the full archive requires a lot of time... reading the project's wiki should be enough with the aid of this [[map]]: a list of organized pages by a recommended order. * Do not forget to check the [[Metagovernment:Community_Portal|Community Portal]] often, there you will find what things are being done for the project. ===Join us on IRC=== We're on [http://freenode.net/ freenode] channel #metagov. [http://irc.lc/freenode/metagov/guest@@@ Connect from irc.lc], or your own IRC client. See also the [[archive#IRC archives|archive]] of past chats. ===Join us on Facebook=== We're on [http://www.facebook.com/Metagovernment Facebook] too. "Like" us and post on our wall to let your friends learn about us. ===Attend meetings=== The Metagovernment project holds occasional meetings, which are open to anyone. See the meetings' [[Metagovernment:Community Portal#Meetings|page]]. ===Propose and participate in votings=== Some of the discussion uses some of the software produced by the open projects to find a position on which everybody agrees. In particular open questions are often asked on [[Vilfredo|Vilfredo goes to Athens]], were a specific page has been set up for questions that are of interest to this community. You can go [http://vilfredo.org/viewquestions.php?room=Metagovernment there], propose, and vote on others proposals. ==Contribute== ===Edit the wiki=== Anyone may [http://www.metagovernment.org/w/index.php5?title=Special:Userlogin&type=signup register on this wiki], and registered users may make edits to almost any page (''changes to the home page should only be made if you have consensus''). For information on editing, see [[Help:Editing]]. * You are encouraged to create a [[Special:MyPage|user page]] briefly introducing yourself. Once you are logged in, you can connect to your user page by clicking on your username in the links at the top-right of any page. * Discussions should be conducted in the context of other pages in this wiki; either through dispassionate explanation on an article page, or more subjective discussion on a Talk page. * See the [[map]] of the site for an ordered list of links to their relevant pages and the [[Metagovernment:Community_Portal|Community Portal]] for some current areas of concern. * Otherwise see [[Help:Contributing]] for some general ideas on how to keep the wiki vibrantly healthy! ===Contribute code=== The [[active projects]] are still in development and most could use the help of additional programmers. Please consider contributing to one of these open source projects. See also the [[related projects]] for even more places you can contribute to or get involved with. ===Translate the wiki=== The main [[language]] of this global project is English, the most spoken idiom up today in the Internet. Unfortunately this restricts the participation of non-English speakers. By translating part of the wiki, the [[Main_Page|Main Page]] for example, you can —at least— permit to those people, curious about this project, inform themselves (and others) about it. ==Promote== Additionally, you are encouraged help promote the project and its philosophy by any of the following means: ===Web=== * '''Link to this site''' — Help right now by linking to [http://www.metagovernment.org http://www.metagovernment.org] on your website, personal page, blog, and/or signature line. * '''Bookmark this site''' — If you use bookmarking services such as [http://delicious.com/url/94e1783b9076e940fc858c3b13c949ee delicious], [http://www.digg.com/politics/Tired_of_your_own_government_Time_for_our_own_open_source_one digg], [http://www.stumbleupon.com/url/www.metagovernment.org/wiki/Main_Page StumbleUpon], or [http://www.twine.com/item/11hw0xpgm-1fd/main-page-metagovernment-government-of-by-and-for-all-the-people Twine], please bookmark this site.
