Hello change-maker. Welcome to our little community of social agents on the web.
#Tips and Tricks
Discourse is this spot where our conversations and feedback will take place (so bookmark this link!). Some things to note:
- Our “classroom” is the red “Writing for Change” category. So if you are posting for our community, you’ll see the red banner that looks like this:
- Our “Writing for Change” category is made of individual topics. You can see the first few topics @Adam and I put together.
- In order to reply to a topic, click on the link and click the "Reply" button. You can also like a post by clicking the heart :smile: - In order to "tag" someone else in the community, use the "@" symbol and then begin typing their name. Discourse will show you a list of folks' usernames, you can select the right one, and they will be notified.
- Signup for Discourse. We know it’s another login. But we promise (promise promise promise) it’s worth it.
- Fill out your profile (click on the avatar in the upper right corner, and pop in a picture).
- Introduce yourself. Say a bit about who you are, why you are passionate about the cause, and share your favorite writer, animated GIF or spirit animal.
- Check out someone else’s profile and introduction. We have a few stellar folks already getting started. Check out their profiles and say hi.
