                ura soul created a reference page A guide to administering and maintaining groups at Ureka (edited)

                So you have your very own group at Ureka and want to customise it, invite members and grow your vision? Then this guide is for you. There are 4 main aspects involved with maintaining and administering a group at ureka: Defining the group's intentions, theme, privacy levels and any policies that are needed. Adding and curating content within the group - to ensure your group functions in the way you intend and is interesting/useful for your members. Maintaining the member list - including inviting new members, removing those who break your policies & approving new members (if your group is a private one). Defining who will be the administrator(s) of the group. Each of these topics is covered below in it's own section: 1. Defining the group's intentions, theme, privacy levels and any policies that are needed.   Intentions and policies Every group will have slightly different needs, according to the intentions behind their creation. you can define your intentions by writing them in your group's description, along with any rules you wish to implement within the group such as 'no advertising whatsoever', or whatever other policy you decide upon. Privacy levels The privacy levels can be changed by clicking the 'edit this group' button on your group's homepage and then clicking the 'access' tab at the top of that page. Theme and appearance The homepage of the group can be customised by adding/removing page elements, dragging them to new locations and...

                  Looking for a way to create an online space that's just for your specific needs and the needs of your team, friends or other group? maybe your own group at Ureka would fit your needs. Groups are a kind of site within a site at ureka.org that allow groups of co-creators to unite for specific purposes - so that, for example, specialists in different forms of healing can have their own groups, creators of specific technologies can have their own groups and so too can anyone else for any other reason that is relevant to the intentions of the ureka community. Groups provide the following features: Allow any number of co-creators to participate as a group. Can be public or private and thus either visible to the wider internet, or not. Private groups can be by invitation only. Allow media and other content to be contained within the group and so can be visible and editable only by members of the group - if preferred. Media and other content can still be accessible to the public, if preferred, but be contained by the group so that they can be easily located and used as a resource. Groups can have one or more administrators who are responsible for maintaining and guiding the group and it's content. Administrators can remove members from the group, approve new members, design the group's homepage and access a variety of other relevant tools. How to create a new group Creating a group is a straightforward process that is outlined below. Once your group is created, it will...

                    the list of zones at ureka has been intentionally short to keep a focus on specific topics, however, now that the bulk of the technical tasks are totally or partially complete, i am giving more priority to expanding the site and that means allowing anyone to create their own zones.\r\nin case you are unaware, zones at ureka function like 'groups' on facebook and 'communities' on Google+, in that they provide a space for sharing and communicating on specific topics with a minimal amount of setup and no technical skills required. i will be writing a full page on this topic and sending a site-wide email notification soon - however, you can start your own zone right away... just go to the main 'zones' page and click 'create new zone' to get started. alternatively, there is also a button in the main site navigation for the same purpose in the zone section.\r\nto create zone you need to name it, provide a description, a photo/image and also configure the other options, such as it's privacy level and which forms of content that you, as admin, will allow within the zone. once you save your new zone it will be reviewed by the site admin and then either accepted or rejected, depending primarily on whether or not the intention of the zone violates the terms of agreement of ureka.org.\r\ninjoy!

                      since there are some pages where it is preferable to sign-in and not be forwarded to the activity page (such as when you wish to comment on a video and then sign in to comment on it and are taken away from the video after signing-in), the auto-forwarding after sign-in has been temporarily disabled. this feature will be re-enabled once it has been enhanced to only apply to specific pages and not all of them.

                            the test site has a totally different database to the main site, so you would need to create a new account for the test site if you wanted to sign-in there.
