Considering the recent explosion in activity and exposure in the last few days, it seemed a good time to share this request for help. At the moment, PAX Nation NEEDS more resources than it offers. This WILL change, but any growing community will need resources that are not always readily available.
Help spread the word! It would be great if you added this image to your website (with a link to PAX Nation), someplace where it would be seen but not distract from the main focus of the site. It would look great on social networking pages too!
The primary resource for PAX Nation is … and always WILL be … active participants. Without caring, INVOLVED people, this is is nothing more than a set of ideals mixed with some progressive ideas. Words and ideas have the power to MOTIVATE, but if not acted upon, they never become more than POTENTIAL. The types of skills needed will grow and evolve as the Nation does. Below is a list of some skill sets we currently could use:
All citizens can right blog posts. We need folk to share about their organizations, their communities, their expertise … anything they feel is worth sharing.
Communications are one of the most important tools for cooperation. There are several opportunities for discussion, with the possibility for many more. Moderators will keep things moving and civil.
For the community to develop to its full potential, we need IT professionals who can maximize the web functionality.
We need business savvy people to help get the backing and resources necessary for the nation to grow.
Social Networking Gurus
Social Networking is essential for an online community. With so many out there, we need people dedicated simply to spreading the word and interacting with the many networks.
This project will keep growing, most likely eventually becoming a network of sites. Management will require a conscientious team.
I until we establish funding sources and a functional internal economy, all positions will be voluntary. This will change as PAX Nation starts truly taking form.[
Another important resource is ideas. How can we improve the website? The whole plan? How can we help Pax Nation grow? What actions can we take? ANY ideas are worth looking at, and NONE are of any value if not shared.
As much as an ideal world will not be totally dependent on money … this is not yet an ideal world. If it were, PAX Nation would not be needed. Sadly money is a key to growth in our current world culture, and thus a resource that needs to be gathered. The Marketplace is intended to aid this need, but (at the moment anyway) we need other sources. Crowd funding and grants are options that need to be explored. Donations are also an option.
