zones 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 zones, creators of specific technologies can have their own zones and so too can anyone else for any other reason that is relevant to the intentions of the ureka community.
creating a zone is a straightforward process that is outlined below. once your zone is created, it will need to be approved by the main ureka administration before being fully usable and visible to everyone else.
your zone will then be assessed to ensure it does not break any of the site's terms of service and you will be informed via email notification of the outcome of the assessment. you do not need to wait for approval to begin customising your zone, but others will not be able to see/use it until approval is complete.
for more information about administrating and running a zone, see the page titled 'a guide to administering and maintaining zones at ureka'.
