Hello friends, and welcome to Planetmakers!
This is an introductory exercise to help you become familiar with our system. It has 3 objectives:
- Find your way around the system, learn to do basic things like your profile, send messages using the editor, comment on messages.
- Learn about the major areas (WhoWeAre, Commons, Peacemaking, Synergy, Direction) and how they can help us form well-run Commons.
- Find one or two other people with whom you may have some common interests and make contact with them.
If you get stuck or have any problems, feel free to contact the Help Desk. You could have a video chat with them, using shared screens to help you find your way around. The key point of this system is to set up a community where people support each other and feel supported.
See the next 3 messages for detailed instructions on each of these objectives. You should find you get some kind of prize when you finish!
