We (@initiatives) are currently working on multiple community initiatives to improve the infrastructure used by the SAFE Network community. One of our projects is to improve our presence on Reddit.
It’s useful to have a good presence on Reddit because it allows us to reach out to a broader audience. It also serves as a gateway to our community forum (yes, this forum will continue to be the main hub for our community!) when we take the time to answer questions asked on Reddit with links to existing topics on the forum.
Instead of improving the /r/maidsafe subreddit (which has been active for 2 years and has over a thousand subscribers), we would prefer to start using /r/safenetwork to make it clear that the main topic is the SAFE Network (the technology & the community) as opposed to MaidSafe (the company).
Let me quote @smacz because I think he explained it very clearly in this post:
Our goal is to make /r/safenetwork a great subreddit that redditors will enjoy participating in!
Here are some examples of posts you can expect to see in /r/safenetwork:
- Links to development updates and announcements (e.g. new releases)
- Links to news articles about the SAFE Network and the ecosystem around it (apps, farming, safecoin, etc.)
- Technical questions answered by community members
- AMAs (e.g. with core devs, app builders, farmers, etc.)
We also made a few improvements to increase the user experience:
- We installed a custom theme called Naut (version 4.0) and added images that represent the SAFE Network.
- We wrote a SAFE Network Overview sticky post for newcomers. We will do our best to keep it up-to-date.
- We included a short explanation of SAFE and a list of useful links in the sidebar.
Finally, we agreed on the Rules for /r/safenetwork:
- Posts Must Be Directly Related to the SAFE Network
- Please Be Respectful and Follow Proper Reddiquette
- No NSFW Content
We are very open to your feedback, feel free to message us if you have any suggestions or concerns
