To facilitate this democratic process, each addition or change on the platform starts as a proposal and is subject to revision and voting by other users. We ask the users of the DOT.world platforms to share items in specific communities and to review and rate each other's contributions. However, if you are unsure about where you should add an item, you can simply post it on your profile and it will be added to the platform's home page. You or others can later move it to a community by clicking the 'Move' button in the 'Options' menu.
On the organizational platforms, there is more user and content control possible. Moreover, it is possible to have the content visible only for a selected group of users.
