Wanted: Volunteer Channel Moderators

Saturday, April 7th, 2007

We’re looking for a few volunteers who can reliably spend 1-3 hours per week approving submissions to the Channel Guide.

If you’re interested in being a moderator, please register yourself in the Channel Guide and send us a self-introductory email to Channels [@t] PCulture.org.

In the message, include your Channel Guide username, a bit of background about yourself (like a mini bio), and a sentence or two explaining why you think you’d make a good moderator.

Because the Channel Guide is a core component of the Democracy platform, we must reserve the right to turn down applicants. That said, we’re not overly picky — if you’re in doubt, give it a shot!

All-New Channel Guide is Live!

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2007

We have just launched the all-new Democracy Channel Guide! You can see it in the Channel Guide tab of your Democracy Player.

Ben wrote this guide from scratch (the previous guide was based on drupal) and it’s much faster. It’s also a clean, solid codebase for future improvements, which aren’t too far away.

Channel Owners: now is a good time to update the thumbnail and description that goes with your channel. The new guide is smarter about handling images and if you give it a nice big graphic it will size it to perfection. Your login from the previous guide will still work here.

Let me know what you think of the new guide and especially if you run into any bugs.

Looking for something?
