Peter H How to Add a Project to .impact
 
So you have an idea for an effective altruist project?  Great!  We can't promise anyone will work on it, but getting it up on .impact is your best bet for getting the project considered by the wider effective altruist community.
 
Here's a seven step guide on adding a new project.
 
  • Oh my gosh, 7 is too many steps.  Make it simpler.
If you want the easy way out, just email Peter Hurford <peter@peterhurford.com> or message him on Facebook, and he'll add the project for you.
 
But if you're kind enough to do it on your own...
 
  • How to Add a Project in Seven Simple Steps
 
Step 1
Go to our Projects Page, and type the name of your project in the appropriate place.
  • If it's a new idea you just thought of and want to propose, put it under "New Ideas"
  • If it's something you've thought about how to implement, put it under "Planning"
  • If it's something you (and maybe other people) are actually working to make happen, put it under "Active Development"
 
Step 2
Click the "New Hackpad" button at the top left corner.
 
Step 3
You'll get a new page.  Copy and paste our Project Template into that new page.
 
Step 4
Fill out all the information you find relevant.  The more details the better.
 
Step 5
Copy the URL of your project page.  Go back to the Projects listing and link your new project to the page.  Linking is done by highlighting text and clicking the "link" button.
 
 
Step 6
Go to our .impact Facebook group and announce your project to .impact!  Include the link to the page you made for your project.  Congratulations!  We'd love to discuss it!
 
 
Step 7
Uncork the champagne, you've added a project!

Open Positions with .impact
.impact can use help from anyone.  In fact, you don't need our approval to help .impact -- just do something!  However, if you want to help, but don't know what to do, here are some ideas.  Contact/Do <X> if interested.

  • Specific Project Positions
Event Researcher - Meetups.im
Some people are producing a map of EA meetups, but we need someone to do the work to actually discover what meetups are where.  This can be done by anyone who has a few connections or isn't afraid to ask around to get the ball rolling.  Commitment needed is low, as it probably won't take much time to assemble an initial list of meetups, but ideally we'd like to see someone who is willing to see this project soon.
 
Facebook Advertising Experimenter - Vegan Outreach Study
Some people in .impact have been researching the impact of Facebook Advertisements on whether or not someone will go vegetarian.  A methodology has been drafted, but we need someone with some experience to assist us in running our first pilot test.  Commitment needed is low, as the role is primarily advisory, but ideally we'd like someone dependable and reliable.
 
Wiki Contributor - EA Wiki
Some people in .impact have put together a EA Wiki.  We need some help in getting the Wiki off the ground with some articles.  Involvement here would be very low commitment -- contribute whenever you want for as long (or as little) as you'd like.
 
EA Researcher - .impact Research Base
Some people in .impact have put together a research base for publishing research related to the effective altruism movement, however loosely.  We're looking for more people to contribute research on important topics.  While any research is fair game, we've put together a board of research ideas if you know you want to research something, but don't know what.  Involvement here would be very low commitment -- contribute whenever you want for as long (or as little) as you'd like.
 
  • Useful Skills
Design
People in .impact have a lot of ideas for design projects -- ranging from brochures to logos to infographics and more -- but we need someone with design skills to actually make these ideas happen.  You can contribute as much or as little as you'd like, but there is a lot of opportunity to get deeply involved here.  Ideally, someone interested would take on one self-contained complete project (i.e., work on a particular logo or design for a particular website, or design for a particular infographic, etc.).  We're also open to people suggesting their own ideas for design projects.
 
Ruby on Rails (or similar)
Lots of programming projects in .impact would benefit from more people knowledgeable in Ruby on Rails to get things moving.  There's room to work on current projects or suggest your own.  You can contribute as much or as little as you'd like, but there is a lot of opportunity to get deeply involved here.   Ideally, someone interested would take on or assist in one self-contained complete project.

Home Duplicate for Website (Links Removed for Website)
 
.impact is a distributed volunteer force working to produce really useful projects.  We are inspired by effective altruism. Our projects may be anything from research to programing, from designing an infographic to starting a charity.
 
Communication is almost completely documented and transparentWe use lean methodology and aim to get things out there quickly so we can learn from them.  Anything published is open source or creative commons.  We measure the impact of all our projects and estimate our future expectations for them.
