Appreciated everyone who has commented in Ask Readers: A community on lifehack.org?. After a week of testing and deployment, it is online now!

Since lifehack.org online, our visitors has increased month by month. For instance this month (half way through the month), our number of unique visitors has already exceed June and 200% more than May. Our posts had hit to varies blogs, web sites and del.icio.us popular page constantly.

There are readers who emailed me asking for a place to share their tips, views, or asking questions. It urged me to create a place for the community.

For now, I am going to put Lifehack.Community into beta cycle for public test out (I like beta because I am a geek), reason being I really want to see how active will it be first. If this model is not suitable to readers, I am willing to improve it.

So please register a free account and start posting discussion, news and tips. Remember you need other to moderate (vote) your post before it hits to the community front page. So let’s help each other!

Comment and feedback are welcome. Enjoy!

Here is what I posted on What is Lifehack.Community and FAQs. It should help you get started:

What is Lifehack.Community?

Lifehack.Community (http://community.lifehack.org) is basically a weblog (blog). A little twist on this site compared to lifehack.org homepage is that readers are in control in here – you can be an editor and post your own story. You can moderate what story to show on the front page.

What sort of things I can post here?

  • You can post questions or topic for discussion.
  • You can post your own article to share your views.
  • You can post news you saw from other web sites.

How does it work?

Once you have registered a free account and logged in, you will see Create content -> Story on your navigation menu. It should bring up to a submit story page. Enter the Title of the story. Select the appropriate Type of the story, then choose the Topic(s) related to the story and type away.

Once you have submitted the story, it will move to Submission queue. People within the community can moderate the submission. For moderation, go to Moderate submissions on your navigation menu. You can vote whether you think the story should be posted or not. You can vote to post it (vote +1), neutral against the article (vote 0), or you think it should be dropped from the system (vote -1).

Once the vote is over the post threshold, it will be posted to the front page. On the other hand, if it is lower than the drop threshold, it will be dropped.

Why Lifehack.community is using this model?

This model will let community driving the discussions and stories. It is more collaborative, interactive and friendly to vote for posting (or dropping), than having an editor to sit in between the post queue and moderate all the posts before it get posted.

Can I suggest something or send you feedback?

Sure, please use this form for contacting us.

Have fun on reading, posting and interacting!
