To ensure this remains a fun and constructive space to connect and share with others, we ask that everyone follow a few simple guidelines. These guidelines are updated as we learn how to best support the Caribbean Telecentres and telecentre.org community. If you would like to contribute ideas, please send us feedback
- Fill out your profile and upload a photo — This community help us to connect, share, and get to know each other. The first step toward this is to create a wonderful profile page and upload a photo of yourself (or your organization) — photos sized to 175x175 pixels look best. Seeing each others' faces is important and transparency is one of our core values. Complete profile information allows people to network and help each other. Our Community Facilitators will ask new members to complete your profile and upload a photo before they approve them
- Be respectful and constructive — Caribbean Telecentres is an open and inclusive public space for sharing knowledge and making connections. Profiles, comments, and discussions are visible by anyone viewing this website, with the exception of content within groups marked as private. Please be respectful and constructive with your comments. If you would like to send private comments to any member you can add them as your friend and then send them a message.
- English for public communication — Caribbean Telecentres has (or will soon have) online communities in English, French, Spanish. This community shares content and discussions in English. If content is only available in another language, please provide an English summary. If you would like to share content and discussions in Spanish and French please feel free to join these communities. (Tip: If you use the same email address to create your profile on another community site it will be easier for you to move from community to community. See Getting Started.)

- We use the word "telecentre" in the broadest sense — "Telecentre" is a general term that includes any public place where people can access computers, the Internet, and other digital technologies that enable them to gather information, create, learn, and communicate with others while they develop essential digital skills. Community Acces Points (CAP), Community multimedia centres, community technology centres, telecottages, village information centres, etc.. — what these places are called doesn't matter, what's important is a shared commitment to grassroots technology access for development. Learn more on Wikipedia.
