Contributing to the Creative Culture Guide
Anyone who is committed to the Creative Culture Guide Standards and Ethics can contribute to the Creative Culture Guide. The guide has two basic types of items:
SectorsA category or area of activity that needs to be understood and practiced well in order for a culture to thrive in a sustainable and enlightened way.
ResourcesAn organization, tool, person, or idea that can help people address their needs in a holistically sustainable way. Each resource is part of one or more sectors.
Adding A New Item
- Sign in with your email and password. (Use the link in the upper right of the page.)
- Do a search to see if the item already exists. (If it does, you can edit and improve the existing page.)
- Click add a sector or add a resource from the 'Add' menu in the upper right of the page and fill in the necessary fields.
All sectors and resources can be edited by any member. To make an edit click/tap and hold on the text that needs editing and a green box will appear indicating that you've entered editing mode. You can then make the necessary changes and click save. Members can see how an item changed between edits by using the right and left arrows in the edit header.
Contribution KarmaMembers receive "karma points" for the quality and quantity of their contributions. Your karma score is shown in the header under your username.
Creative Culture Contribution Contests take place periodically and members can win prizes for their contributions.
All contributions are reviewed to make sure that they are in alignment with the Creative Culture Guide Standards and Ethics before being activated.
