This is an open thread to 1) provide some context on changes that have occurred to The Community Handbook and 2) provide a space for updates, suggestions, and general discussion around this community asset.
Despite gitbook being geared toward technical documentation, it has become the standard for most DAO repositories of both technical and non-technical resources. Recently @Pepperoni_Joe and myself ( @mel.eth ) undertook a massive effort to reorganize this asset and make it more useful. Some people require regular use of this asset, others need something quite specific and may only use it once. The thinking was and is that this should be an intuitive guide for new joiners, contributors, investors, and anyone else looking to better understand this DAO in whole or part.
Without getting into the weeds too far ( and I wish I’d saved a copy of the old version for reference ), all of the information was carried forward, but the UX is much better. I encourage anyone reading this to spend a few minutes poking around if you haven’t already. At present, @caf and I are working on making this resource even more valuable to those that use it (while hopefully making it a bit more fun to look at).
The fact is, this resource is one of the most heavily linked-to by contributors looking to provide generalized information, and is seen as a source of truth by those seeking to gain a better understanding of The Coop. Many contributors regularly add information to this resource ( 11 different contributors in the last 30 days) - keeping tone consistent, keeping it organized, and keeping information from getting stale is an ongoing effort - but one that is necessary if we’re providing the best possible user experience.
I will make every effort to stay on-top of forum posts etc. to make sure that information is staying relevant, but if you don’t have edit access and would like something added or changed, please feel free to drop a comment here, @ me here or on discord
@mel.eth#0001 , and I will make sure it gets done.
