YOU are now a part of the #CRYPTONATION and we are so pumped you’re here! Literally, we are ecstatic. We want to get to know you and hear about your goals and support you in your mission to the moon. Please INTRODUCE YOURSELF!!! Our pub crawlers are eager to say hello.
We say some funny things around here and we are mostly influenced by our fearless leader, @peter the DOGE LORD. If you find yourself saying things like “YOOOOOOOOoooooo” and “SMASH THAT LIKE BUTTON” and you want to know where these phrases come from, we’ve got you covered. Take a look at the Doge Dictionary wiki and feel free to participate!
You may or may not start sounding like Peter. That’s quite alright. We all do.
THE MOD SQUAD
This forum is full of helpful people and some of the most helpful people you will meet are the Moderators! These guys and gals are community volunteers and they are here to serve you and help make this place great.
A little bit about who they are and what they do, check out Our Community Leaders post and learn a bit more about the team. We are forming into Community Teams where each group helps serve specific areas of the Pub.
Does the idea of being a Moderator interest you? Let us know if you want to be considered!

TOPICS & VIDEO

Search First- As you start to get ready to make a post, be sure to search first in the search que on the top right and be sure to hit the “Show More” option at the bottom of the search returns. If you don’t find exactly what you need, post away and start the conversation.
Categorize - When you post a topic, be sure to take a look at how it should be categorized so that it shows up in the most appropriate spot. The help preview screen on the right will also guide you a bit if your topic meets similar categories.
Videos - If you are thinking about posting a video, its good to share some context about why you are sharing it. We love videos but in a forum style format, context is important otherwise, we end up feeling like a video repository. :0 Here is a good recent example of a Cryptonaut posting a video and giving us some context… also, it was categorized just perfectly!
- Told us about the video and its importance
- Gave us a small summary of its content
- Categorized it to the right section
