Democrats Abroad Wiki Content Management Policies
Wiki access and an outline of the kinds of permissions and access restrictions available in the wiki environment.
Who gets access to Wiki content management user accounts?
DA has a limited number of licensed wiki user accounts – so not every leader or volunteer has their own personal account. User accounts are limited to those who are active contributors to the wiki, and those who have administrative responsibility over a section of content.
As wiki usage, content, and activity expands within DA, we will likely increase the number of users to allow for CC leaders to create country specific spaces. If you have an idea about developing content in the wiki, please contact the Wiki Management Team: [email protected] – we do want and need more volunteers helping to build content in the wiki!
What is a Wiki "Space" and who can access content in a space?
This wiki is made up of "Spaces" where page content is stored. Each space is like a mini-website with its own user and group access permissions and content sharing controls.
A space can be restricted: with only a few members of a given group being allowed to see and edit its content. If you are not a member of a group that has been given access, then you will not be able to even see that the space exists.
A generic shared-password account that will be distributed to all DPCA Committee Leaders, so that they can have easy access to content that is not for the general public.
What are the permission levels for accessing wiki content?
The wiki provides a great deal of flexibility when controlling access to a Wiki Space. Here is a short list of some of the ways that we will make content available:
