Opasnet workers are self-organised groups of people who edit and improve Opasnet pages without having this task as a part of their work as employees of an organisation. The motivation may be interest in the topic, fun, merit, or money paid on specific tasks by organisations.


What are the rules for Opasnet workers


  • Everyone can work in Opasnet on any topic as long as they obey the rules of Opasnet.
  • People may be paid by organisations if they perform tasks specifically assigned by these organisations. The current practices for this are described in List of open tasks and op_fi:Avoimia tehtäviä (in Finnish).
