Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Have you seen the new Leader Cloud yet? It is pretty neat!

This page is not linked to from the main page yet, but we are a few people who are monitoring the site, and this popped up on our radar. It looks interesting, and yet not fully formed. More features are probably in the works (I have seen screenshots of other implementations, but those I will not share here)

There are several things I like about this. First of all, for instance, it shows people between 1 and 9 points. SUPER!

I cannot express how psyched I am by that. Now we have a way to give attention to some of those guys who are starting up in the game, who havent made a lot of friends yet maybe. Who havent found ways to channel their work into sub-spheres on Evoke.

What do you think about the Leader Cloud as it looks now?

I love the feel of the page. The conept is great because it gives the newer players a chance to be heard. It's also great because it is not based on the people with the most points; only for people to click on their names and give them even more points. The randomised feature makes it more ... I'm trying to think of a word... fair? Anyway, I like it. Thanks for sharing =]

a combination of the two approaches is the best in my opinion. the "leaders", for those who thrive in a competitive environment (and the system should severely punish cheating). and then there are the other lists, like the ones we see now. but the Leaders list should be at the very bottom of the page. it should be more hidden. so that the others come first.

and yes, the randomness is interesting. it also gives us the incentive to refresh page to find new content. if only there were ways to enhance all this.

It has since been updated with leaders by power (at the bottom), mega heroes (all runes accomplished) and power generators (most powers given).

Interesting. I'm glad they're still tweaking the site.
Comment by Raymond M. Kristiansen on April 1, 2010 at 2:22am
yeah, thanks Nathan. also I see that the Cloud is now linked to from "Leaders" on top of site. so its live/official now. great.

and I like the power generators. its a good pointer to attention-Givers

the 667 votes came from +20, +50 etc from admins. what else? come on, you know about that Ethan - dont you?

admins are given 2000 points per week (I THINK, im not quite sure that is the number) that they can give out to agents whose work they like. that is, they give the points either to the Agent, or to a Specific Item the agent has produced. a blog post etc.

there is nothing weird about this. you may agree or disagree with this system (im in the middle, undecided), but its been pretty transparent from the start of evoke.

and with all due respect, Ethan, the 'great question' is NOT how this or that player got his points from, or whether this or that player is cheating, or whether this or that player should be banned or not. the great question is innovation.

let's focus on that.

i am happy about the new leader board system. now, let's use it. not for theories about how some people got their points, but for finding new and relevant content.

content is still king.

the -1 can have all kinds of reasons. he maybe deleted a post, or a picture. or maybe an admin deleted it because it broke some copyright. or something else. why not ask Reid about it? ;)

I like it. Appeals to me.

@Ethan: How?

Here are a few ideas:

Do something unique. Do something which takes for instance balls of iron. That is, courage. Do something in your local community, and report back to Evoke. That's what Reid did during the first week. He actually went and visited an eco-village. He posted pictures, etc. Things which a lot of readers liked, including some admins I guess. That visit, I think, was what got Reid rolling bigtime and became the start of his legend.

HIS legend. There are tons of legends on Evoke. Tons of interesting people doing interesting things. If you want to 'get a lot of votes from the admins', make sure you do something that can get a lot of votes from other players. That is, can speak to us. It can be creative, investigative journalism, courageous as I mentioned, or something else. Something that moves this site forward.

By doing that, you will maybe find that the 'votes from the admins' is not the goal, but maybe becomes a minor bonus. Where the goal actually is what you DO, on this site. And how that affects what Others do. :)

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

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.
