5. Telling stories..
6. with the community
We believe the community knows their story better than we do.
Every story can be changed and edited. Every change is checked by an editor.
Think Wikipedia but moderated and edited.
7. Full, stories, too.
Some community members have the time to write full stories and columns for us.
We allow them to do that, and we offer training to groups, classes and anyone else who wants to learn how to participate in journalism.
8. Whats happening near you
One of the first things we heard from the community is that they dont know whats going on three blocks away.
So we made a map of all of our stories, so they can see where stories take place.
