RSS feeds are an
easy way to keep track of updates in websites. Instead of

you can receive updates from various sites in one place (that
can be you email reader, web browser or even a specific site
or software). To receive www.wsf2008.net updates via
RSS, check the link “RSS Feeds” on the main page. For further

b) Deleting actions and moderating
If you made any mistake when
presenting your action, or if it was canceled, access your
action page, then click on edit tab at the top of it, and at
the bottom of the page you will find a delete button. If you
want to create a new action in a pre-existent Action Space,
click on Create Action on the right sidebar when accessing
your action space.
If you found an action that you
think has inappropriate content (take the WSF Charter of
Principles as a reference - http://www.forumsocialmundial.org.br/main.php?id_menu=4&cd_language=2),
you can warn the moderation team by clicking on “report” at
the bottom of the action page and explaining the reasons you

You can also view all the actions in one country by selecting
the desired place from the country list on the main page or
