ValueWiki Opens New Community Portal and Help Page

“Never put off until tomorrow what you can put off until the day after tomorrow.” – Mark Twain

I finally built the new Community Portal and Help page on ValueWiki this weekend. The community is absolutely the most important part of a Wiki, and we need to provide as many resources as possible for allowing the community to feel they are a part of the site and get connected.

To this end, Zach and I still have a lot of work to do. I started work this weekend building a sample investment club group, “Jon and Zach’s Investment Group,” as well as the all important “Recent Changes Patrol.”

By creating a group on ValueWiki, like-minded investors can message each other and live chat to share ideas. Certain groups, like the Recent Changes Patrol, will perform valuable tasks for the community, such as welcoming new members and preventing vandalism.

To join these groups, just add the userbox to your userpage by typing “{{Jon and Zach’s Investment Group}}”. If you want to see how they look in action, visit my bio page.

As always, stay tuned for tonight when we announce the daily $100 Contributor-of-the-Day winner.
