Today has been an extremely exciting day for Geeklist.
We had the fortunate opportunity to help a startup foundation, The National High Five Project, raise money for Cancer Research using our own High 5 system. We got over 250 ^5’s and counting and brought over 5,700 views giving them some quality visibility for their first real fundraising event. We’re happy to announce we have decided to support them year round. (details to follow in a few weeks, meanwhile here are the results: ”Hi5 this card to help raise funds for the National Hi5 Project Cancer Research! .50¢ per ^5 thru 5:55 pm 4/19 - Geekli.st http://bit.ly/HRk8Jk ” )
At the end of the day ^5’s are an important part of the Geeklist eco-system and something that is a quantifiable way to build your Geek Cred and get Credits from your peers. Literally. Here’s how:
Last week we released an update that allows you collect ^5s from cards you are a contributor in. Yes! So if you see a card, and you feel you should be added as contributor, you can request to be added.
Just click on the ‘request’ blue text and this will open:
If you’re on the other side of this, having created a card and wishing to add contributors, you can add them or invite them to join Geeklist! How? It’s simple, we’ve recently added the ability to send invites via email!
Why are ^5s important? The more you receive the more relevant you’ll become in our system. We are adding more discovery tools and one way users are able to stand out is through accrued ^5s. The more ^5s you have, the more your profile will stand out. We are also using stats, who are you connected to, overall activity etc. BUT having a large amount of ^5s tells us you’re doing good things.
So ^5 away folks!
