On the last keybase meeting, there was a short discussion if we could add communication channels to the grin.mw page.
I (and some others) think it’d make sense to make it clear that OC is available on keybase and add a link to all things community channel which is the Grin CC page. GrinCC will always do a much better job at communicating where the community can be found than the OC will this way we’d avoid duplicating links and also avoid going through OC to modify these.
Well, adding the CC link could be a good addition but it doesn’t solve the issue that the page is completely broken, I’m not sure how sending users to another website will make it easier for them to get support or take part.
Currently these are the sections on the community page:
Keybase widtget - broken
Bi-weekly meetings - canceled (around 2 years ago)
Grin Forum - useful but needs to be more accessible, maybe can move it to the top of the page?
Mailing List - Abandoned 4 years ago, there is only one message since then
I agree there’s a few others things than just community channels to be fixed.
Here’s my vote regarding sections:
Remove the keybase widget
Remove bi-weekly meetings section
Make Grin Forum more visible
Leave the mailing list link
The mailing list, while inactive today, had some of the most productive thoughts. I’d leave it there because it still has all the history of development communication. I’m not sure if this will make the page look too empty though.
TLDR; make it apparent OC is only on keybase, remove keybase widget, remove meetings sections, make forum as visible as possible, link to grincc hub page.
I think it is important to try to keep this information accessible and visible on the fund page so I can prepare a PR to display the balance in real time (API call for accuracy) and also add a link as you suggested.
I am always ready to maintain the fund page, or in general any out-of-date information on the main site, it usually takes me a few minutes for PR and can save you time.
You’ll just have to review it, the changes are 1-2 lines so it’s 1 minute every few months.
I’d like to volunteer for any proofreading or document creation/updating help needed on this project. I am on disability with lots of free time and have experience with helping projects do this before and want to help. I also can build static HTML pages with proper formatting.
Tmgox website wanted to donate some part of rewards to Grin development I guess. I think it can be good idea to have page with links to all Grin-related projects on GrinCC website and mention it, as suggested before:
Most people are unaware what is GrinCC at all.
GrinCC target is to support grin projects, bounties and community activities.
