SteemDeepThink - Weekly Digest #1

in deepthink •  last year

Imgur

It's been almost a week since we went live with our launch of @SteemDeepThink, a community project promoting quality writers of the humanities. What started out as a small venture, is now picking up steam (and picking up Steem!) as a growing number have come to show their interest and support.

We've had more than 40 users come through our Discord channel over the last several days. Some just stopping by to say "hello," while others have already made some significant contributions!

Upcoming Contest!

"SteemDeepThink - Weekly Digest #1" -- How BORING!

We need a catchy name for our weekly post that details the weekly comings and goings of all things @SteemDeepThink. Our Discord channel will soon be hosting a contest to help name our weekly digest. If you have an idea for a title that tickles the ear, drop by our Discord channel soon! (Link provided below.)

Interesting, i will check it out. I dont understand what a discord actually is though, can you explain how this works?

Discord is an application that lets groups chat/post in community forums. It is an easy way to connect with others live. It has a stand alone application for Mac/PC, apps for iOS and Android, and a web-only application too. (discordapp.com). Once you have Discord installed, you can just click the link in the digest above to get access to our group.

There's still some layout design work to be done on the next issue for some better visual aesthetics. And we need a better name too!
