Thanks Clare for bringing up this interesting topic.
For me it would have to be the quality of this forum’s underlying engine: topic editing, inmail capabilities, notifications, search, etc. are all on point.
I would have said the accessibility of this forum (complexity of login using the extension, nearly impossible login on mobile), but as mentioned by Clare this has already been taken into account and will be improved.
The overall structure of the forum is bugging me. Categories are useless and underutilized. I don’t ever use them as I’m always up to date, so I only ever use the Latest category, but that’s me (see my conclusion). Still I think there is room for improvement there. Better categories definition could I think inspire different forms of feedback and contributions from the community. Not crystal clear in my mind though.
A community manager would be nice, especially as the number of users increases. But I will answer something else entirely.
I think this forum could use some kind of user leveling system. Some might call it gamification or “earning ranks”, it would in the end be a way to:
- encourage users to get involved and be mindful of the quality of their answers
- help newcomers get inspired and assisted by seasoned members
- earn recognition for one’s commitment to Nash and its community
Progression could unlock priviledges, titles, ways to decorate your username (The current badge system is barely noticeable…). In this regard, Stackoverflow might be good source of inspiration.
Well, that’s the easiest one to answer. Nash is my biggest hold, I have every reason to help the company succeed. However I would go further and say that Nash really stands for everything I believe in in the crypto movement (removing the middleman and in the process freeing us from our current legacy financial system which deeply favors those with capital in spite of those without). So it’s an easy commitment.
To conclude I would ask Nash team to take our feedbacks with caution: our needs as early and committed adopters may not be the need of the many when GA hits and the floodgates open.
