From Maleny Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This wiki is a public resource for the Maleny community and social businesses as well as anyone interested in Community Development.

Because this resource is open to editing by the registers users, readers should be aware that the material presented here often does not reflect the views of the entire Maleny community and may be outdated, incorrect, or outright malicious at times.

Policies and Rules

Content on the Wiki should generally be factual in nature where possible and related to the Maleny Community and more specifically to the creation, operations and community development processes generated by the co-operatives and social businesses that lead to the rapid development of Maleny during the last half century.

Generally, if you do not want your writing to be edited mercilessly and redistributed at will, then do not submit it here.

While the Wiki doesn't exist to promote any particular businesses or commercial activity, such things are important parts of the Maleny community and the benefits of social enterprise and the creative industries are welcomed to get discussed here, but biased editing with a strong pecuniary interest is frowned upon and spamming up the wiki with referral links is prohibited.

To prevent unnecessary drama, editors should refrain from adding material which they believe may be unlawful for them or other editors to post. Maleny Wiki respects your freedom to communicate but since this is a shared resource you should respect other people's right to be free from the association with your views and their consequences. Registered users will be blocked if they abuse the site.

As a small community resource, the Maleny Wiki is often less formal than generic references like Wikipedia and because it addresses a broad community of interests, not all pages will be suitable for all readers. Editors should be mindful, however, of the work it takes to maintain pages and try to avoid an excessive proliferation of pages which will not be well maintained.
