Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

At present, the Evoke community has an incredible amount of content rushing through a pipe. As ever, the task is not to create content, but to /filter/ content. We have an incredible array of voting tools that are used to earn points without utility. 

Stephenson notes that sometimes it's not a bad thing for a community to read the same content every day. And we have well established models for exploring community opinion on created content. Why don't we take advantage of them? Let us have a page (and RSS feed) for stories that are interesting/liked/voted on/commented on by many. 

Unlike other content sites, we have a number of distinctions. We create our own content. We have a multitude of positive voting categories (but no negative? We do need negative feedback...) Let's take advantage of them by having a "top entires" page that changes with the voting. Is the community currently embracing vision? Excellent, let's display mostly vision stories. Are the voting trends shifting to courage? Well then. 

There are a number of fascinating trends that we can take from this data. Let's insure that this pipe full of interesting bits doesn't just flow into the bit bucket in the sky.

Furthermore, let us build communities of interest. Ones with human moderators who can find stories of interest to that community and share there. There seems to be a basic infrastructure of groups, but no easy way to take advantage of them. Let's fix this.

Edit: On the evidence log. Don't allow people to self-submit. Allow us to organize by communities and insure that we /have/ fulfilled the objectives.

funny that i should be drawn to this post
upon looking at a list of all posts...

you are absolutely right about filtering
we need for the most important or interesting things to float to the top...
but sadly
the ones that do are simply those that get past a certain threshold
get presented on some popular or top list
and then exponentiate

i've noticed
is that some admin bump a post or item or evidence artificially be rewarding points
this touch from the hand of god is an alternative

i don't think there should be a global list
but only local
only by connecting with a few people
becoming friends
following them
and as a result of local engagement
certain evidence reaches a sufficient level promoting the player to a higher level
the players of this highest level befriend one another and a similar round occurs

with 5,000 players
and each grouping of 10 people
that's only 4 rounds to ascertain the most important evidence...

we could do this every mission
every week...
by the end of the week
this process might highlight the best we can come up with
The hierarchy of filters with regards to locality is an interesting idea. I would absolutely support this filtering plan. "Every community chooses its own interesting post. These are passed to larger communities, and so on." Communities are both of location, practice, and level.

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

Changes to Charleston

https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=zQ49AvLkhA2w.kfbaOGer-lQYIf you click my link to my custom map using Google My Maps you will see the addition of a Emergency Shelter to be used in case of a tidal wave or other event from the sea. Included are new emergency routes on what will be an expanded highway to allow traffic to flow in the event of an emergency.See More
