Hey @MentalCrew and all Blockzero !
In our last Mental Mining Assignment we asked for your feedback on the new website. You came up with a lot of valuable input. Thank you for that. One thing several of you brought up has to do with consistency and the terminology we use throughout the website, the forum and our discord (see examples below).
The decentralized world is already a pretty intimidating place. It becomes even harder when we use acronyms or change these terms too frequently.
From original terms (Citizenship, XID, XLP, XSI, etc) to new terms (Yield Missions, Mental Mining, Spaceship, etc), we have used a lot of different terms during our two years together.
Some of you already gave valuable feedback on the terminology. Let’s pick up this discussion and come up with a consistent terminology!
With this Mental Mining Assignment our goal is to come together and make the official Blockzero Terminology Cheat Sheet – a list that should solidify our brand consistency, be fairly easy to understand, and help new potential community members feel more comfortable in our ecosystem.
Here are some questions we would like to hear your feedback on:
What’s causing confusion?
Are there any or previous terms/phrases we have used in the history of Blockzero that have been extra confusing? If so, please list them here and explain if possible!
Please make sure to keep …
Are there any certain terms/phrases we have used in the history of Blockzero that really resonate with you that we should try to keep? Why do you think so?
How to call ourselves?
As we release the new website (and discord) with a more space-centered theme, we thought it would be a good time to challenge our naming convention of what we call ourselves! We have been experimenting with Citizen, Passenger and Explorer. There are certainly other terms like Member, Crew or something else. Which do you prefer and why? If none of these resonate with you, please let us know what you think would be an appropriate term for our community members!
This Mental Assignment will generate a reward of 10,000 XIO to be shared between all Mental Crew according to their respective contribution. Please make sure to also keep up with the discussion points your fellow crew brings up. Only then will you be able to properly help award credits. Find out details on how to participate in this post.
