Only users approved by EcuRed administrators are able to update entries and a .cu email address is required in order to register. Not all of EcuRed’s articles are open to modification. Pages can be “protected” for multiple reasons, including “to protect modifications of articles considered very valuable, with a high [degree of] consensus, or with an elevated repercussion.”
The site is available to all Internet users in Cuba, which is estimated at 1.6 million out of a total population of 11.2 million. A portable version that can be used for schools and other institutions not connected to the Internet will be made available.
The site is operated by Cuba's Youth Computer Club, an affiliate of the Communist Youth Union.
