Crowdsourcing beBee Baedekers - Please Help! (Updated)
It's been more than five weeks since we started producing honey via the Publisher/Producer on beBee. Already there are more of our stories than any one human can conceivably skim through, let alone read carefully. And the production continues daily.
Meanwhile, impressive numbers of new bees are joining us. Each of them could probably use some quick orientation and a few hints navigating the meadow.
Wouldn't it also be useful if we had a "Best Of" hive, to represent and promote beBee and, frankly, each of us?
I've searched existing hives and haven't found any entitled Cheat Sheet or Selection/Picks. So I've taken the liberty to create them, in English. I venture to say such hives would be equally useful in other languages, so if you agree, create away.
I propose simple rules for their management.
Rule 1: each month, each Featured Bee should pick one of their own buzzes - the one they proudly wrote - and add it to the Bees' Best Works hive. All this takes is a bit of discipline (only one post per month, please). The point is to keep this hive travel-sized (you'll thank me when you return from a corporate retreat, parental leave or a space walk gone wrong).
Rule 2: each Bee aware of a handy shortcut or a tip on how to best use beBee should write a brief buzz and add it to the Cheat Sheet hive. (Please first check to see if someone hasn't already shared the same idea).
Rule 3: each month, each Bee should pick one post they liked (but did not create) and add it to the Bees' Picks hive. It should be something they found elsewhere and shared on beBee recently and still wish everyone would see it.
I'd appreciate your thoughts and ideas about these hives, and especially any improvements you can suggest. On the other hand, if I am belated and these solutions exist in some form, it's just as easy to delete these and forget about them.
Can you think of a cross-cutting meta-hive which would make beBee even better that it already is?
