WikiTribune is a news platform that is primarily about volunteers doing neutral, factual, high-quality news. The WikiTribune community strives to create articles with a very high degree of transparency and accountability. The most important thing to understand is that you can edit every story at WikiTribune.
You’ll start out with a surprising amount of permission to edit things from day one. After you’ve been around a bit and shown yourself not to be disruptive, you’ll be promoted to being able to publish articles directly. And when the community really finds you genuinely trustworthy (and nice!) you can be promoted to admin.
As you have fun with WikiTribune, you’ll likely run into staff members – who are here to support you, not to boss you.
