Hey all, I have been running the main Zcash community site (zcashcommunity.com) since 2016 and @rex4539 has been helping to keep the “Pay with Zcash” vendors page up-to-date. Most pages are static information which I have built up over the years and I make efforts to keep them up to date as best I can.
With my day job my time available to dedicate to writing actual “long-form” content like blog posts is very limited. Some users may remember my post “Zcash Separating Fact from Fiction” where I tried to clear up misconceptions about Zcash. With my limited time I have to focus on modding here, the chat, and r/zec Reddit along with posting news to the Twitter account.
I was thinking it would be cool to give the many thoughtful members of Zcash Community (You!) a chance to post there too. I have seen many great posts here on the forums. You could use the “front page” of the site to get more exposure to your ideas/opinions/deep philosophical thoughts on Zcash.
So I wanted to post the question to you all. What kind of content would you like to see? Would you be interested in using the site as a “Medium” to convey your ideas to the rest of the community? I would like to make it a platform for the Community to talk about what you are interested in, what you are passionate about, what attracted you to Zcash, etc…
Simple rules for Contributor posting:
- Should be about Zcash or Zcash related events/commentary/news but could also be about privacy and privacy preserving tech or even regulation.
- Content will be reviewed before posting/approved (by me)
- Cannot be an advertisement for a business/service or contain affiliate links.
- Should be well written and thoughtful, we are not trying to clickbait for AD revenue.
Also, if you are familiar with WordPress and would like to become a site Editor to help contribute to general site upkeep/posting please DM me.
Any thoughts/ideas are welcome!
P.S. Some website stats: The site gets about 10k page views per month (much less than the forums) and that’s largely due to it being 90% static content which Google doesn’t favor. Also important; the site is and will remain AD-free (aside from linking to business and services that use Zcash, for which there are zero fees for listing, simply start supporting Zcash and your business/website will be listed)
