After contemplating the best way to use this domain, I have decided to allow the community to decide what it wants from BitShares.com. I will point the domain to a server of a trusted member, once a plan is set forth and a general consensus has been reached for what its purpose will be.
Here are some ideas I have for direction:
1- Comprehensive getting started guide; educational interface. I have been lurking here for quite a while now, and I believe to have a fairly well-rounded understanding of what BitShares is and is capable of. What I noticed is that an easily accessible new user guide is severely lacking. This should be a main focus on BitShares.com.
2- News and opinions articles. The quality of some of the posts here are fantastic, and these individuals could easily create quality articles to promote BitShares.
3- Bitshares statistics site, like SVK's bitsharesblocks.com. Perhaps if SVK is interested, we could join forces?
4- Online wallet, with the ability to purchase BTSX and BitUSD directly on the website. It was more difficult than it needed to be for me to obtain some BTSX, with purchasing BitCoin from Coinbase.com, transferring to Bter.com, downloading the wallet, creating an account, sending from Bter.com to my account.
5- Online interface for trading/shorting. I noticed member 'monsterer' is working on something like this, maybe we could also join forces?
In the end, my goal is for BitShares.com to be the one place you can always send someone for anything BitShares related.
We need someone to host the website.
* Project Manager
I will fulfill this role until a more qualified individual steps up. Even after this happens, I will want a hand in decision making.
* Designers, web developers
It seems like member 'Cass' is the resident designer here in the community. Cass, would you be interested in contributing your talents to this project?
* Content Creators, editors
We will need individuals to create the content for the new user guide, educational interfaces, and articles.
If you are interested in collaborating, please post here what you are capable of offering. If you are interested in this proposal at all, please post here and make your opinion vocal.
