Let’s address a couple of complaints from Pub members in the forum. You guys know I read all. It helps me get a fuller perspective of the moving markets and sentiment. It’s great!
[You should probably start here for context… it’s my manifesto for why I went full time into crypto… career suicide for a brand new life! - https://agilescout.com/time-for-change/]
Ok. Now that’s out of the way. How did the Pub come about?
As an experiment. Could I create a place where people could learn, grow, share, and support one another?
Done. We did it.
Uh oh… the experiment theory became a scaling nightmare.
Technical costs rose.
Thread categories got messy (remember all the alt coin sub threads for you Founders?)
Experiments are exactly that. Testing a hypothesis. We ran the experiment. It worked! Now what?
Did you know that Yen.io is the amalgamation of many different experiments executed quickly to learn quickly through trial and error and failure?
We built the pub. Then…
- a new website and youtube channel - dctv.show
- b90x program - #b90x
- advertising mechanisms
- etc etc etc and all the mini experiments in all of these (remember live chat in the Pub?)
You see, the Pub was merely an experiment. Part of our network of properties that we love and enjoy to support.
Will this Pub grow? Certainly!
Will this Pub’s culture change? Certainly!
This will always be a living network that changes over time.
Yen.io, however, changes this game. We’re answering the problems people have here on the Pub. We’re giving you the ability to have 100% control over what you read, watch, chat about, etc etc… You’ll have it! You’ll never need to come back to the Pub again!!!.. …
No. The Pub has a special place in my heart. I believe it does too with many. Will the Pub go through growth cycles of awesome-sauce and superior conversation? YES! … Will we go through cycles where it becomes a rah rah rah for a coin? YES! …
As new people join, we will change shape. I hope it can be for the better.
Remember your friendly moderator. These are volunteer jobs.
There’s a lot of sweeping and dusting to do around this place.
Case example: Moderator Onboarding/Offboarding Process
What a great post about onboarding new people to the Pub! But guess what? The author of that post is no longer around. The other moderators he cites are not around either! October!
We even had a moderator interview thread! That’s now dead… Want to Be a MOD?!?! (Interview Here)
If you’d like to be a mod, consider it here: How To Become a Community Leader
We have tours of duty… so you’re never feeling like you have to do this forever!: Tours of Duty Overview
This is a self-organization experiment. You know where my heart lies. I’m here to do one thing: To spread the good news of bitcoin and blockchain to the entire world. My attention gets directed to new experiments to enable me to do that to the best of my ability.
I cannot clean up the Pub myself.
If you want this Pub to be tasty and wonderful. Step up. Make it yours.
