OmniNerds, once again we turn to you in search of new thoughts, suggestions, and critiques. You see, we’ve got a problem at OmniNerd: our staff talks too much. In 2006, the OmniNerd admins and moderators submitted 79% of articles, 82% of news, 67% of coffee shops, 65% of polls, and 45% of comments. Why is this concerning? Well, there are 6 of us and 600+ of you. In 2007, our goal is to increase the content submitted by our users. We’re prepared to work hard to get on track, but need your help in two ways to do so.
First, tell us why you haven’t submitted content before, or why you’ve stopped submitting content. If the site is a hindrance, let us know. If you feel the bar is set too high for content, please speak up. OmniNerd can only be successful with diverse, nerdy content … your content. We’re looking to you for our answers. So if you’ve never even posted a comment, this is the perfect opportunity to do so and tell us what’s stopped you in the past.
Second, we feel that there may be content gaps on the site. Polls are simple and mindless, articles are long and thoughtful, and somewhere in between are news and coffee shop posts. Is there other content that you would submit but simply don’t have the means to do so on OmniNerd? Tell us about what you’d be willing to write if you had free reign on OmniNerd’s design.
Lastly, keep in mind that with only ten years before the Great Purge, this may be one of the few opportunities you have to save yourself.
