Hello SFX Community,

 

This is the founder of Soferox, Aaron. It has come to my attention recently that the people I have left in charge of communicating with the community have not been performing up to everyone's standards. I take full responsibility for this and will make no excuses. I want to make it clear that we are working hard and building things from the ground up does take time, but beyond that I am very meticulous and hate releasing buggy, or non working products and because of that I know I am not the fastest programmer/project leader/CEO/[Insert Title here]

With that being said. We have terminated our current social and community manager and will be looking for someone else. This brings me to two points.

1st Point:

We will be taking applications for a forum moderator and social campaigner. 

This person will be our link to the community and must have strong verbal, written, and organizational skills. We have not determined a pay structure, but ideally what we are really wanting is a group of people to volunteer and take this task on. I think having a small group of people to help stay in constant contact with community would be invaluable, and you'd get to learn a lot about development of blockchains, and resume potential among other things.

If you'd like to take a shot at this please email [email protected] and they will be going through resumes to send to me.

Also if we determine to make a group to do this, this group would be working together and would be reporting directly to me and getting information from me on whatever basis they setup. 

Basically we want a person/group to setup up routine updates, communication points, and whatever other forms of communication that the community feels we are lacking in, so this would also require a heavy amount of community engagement. We are a small community, but we have a voice and I want everyone to be heard. 

2nd Point:

We would love for people to comment in here on ways we can better communicate and what forms of communication you'd like to see more off. Please note this is not a time to ask questions about exchanges, project, etc. We can give you all this information if you first tell us a more efficient way of communicating with you. Because if we do that you won't need to ask those questions as you will have the channel to learn about it. So please take this time to comment worth while suggestions and ways to better improve the connection of Soferox and it's community 

When building new technology I know things can seem slow, or non-productive and I take blame in that, but also know I am working very hard with our developers in creating what I envision blockchain tech needs to be to finally penetrate into the real world and not just as a crypto trading tool. We are going to allow early buy/sells on the platform between users and we have another project that will be partnering with SFX due to Stamps closing. 

We will be releasing this information soon and are excited in the things that are coming out. We can't wait to see where the future takes us and in this time of crypto depression and market decline we as a community must be strong and of course HODL!

Thank you,

Aaron M.
Soferox CEO and Founder

In my opinion one of the best collaboration platforms out there today is SamePage. They have outstanding support and it might be helpful to connect with them to see how their resources could be implemented with Soferox.

 While I do understand not wanting to let the cat out of the bag, so to speak. It would be awesome to see any kind of activity on the Soferox Github account. Some amount of transparency is important I think. It would help instill a little confidence in your early investors.

You already have the channels set up. All that you need do is to keep us in the loop. I don't think it would take much. Maybe a weekly or bi-weekly update.

I use telegram very often and it is a great way for a community to brainstorm and reach goals.

I believe having some kind of announcement calendar, delivery calendar etc would help us having some hype towards the Soferox technology. Maybe trying to go live on www.coinmarketcal.com

 

Have you thought of this ?

 

cheers

Activity reports and the completion of the analysis phase, or project launch testing, programming Miner or client. Such messages in the forum would be useful. If someone takes a roadmap seriously, we should be 2 months from startup and we do not have any reports of whether or not it started coding. There are inconsistent messages of questions and there are no answers or decisions to them. Lack of trust in the community. It is like the work of one person who does not know what to do. I very much liked the survey "Trading Currency Poll" but again I miss the conclusion. ... we want to help. After launch, the atmosphere will be more relaxed. Hold the roamap. Telegram is not for reporting, forum is important.

Maybe you guys could also look at something like https://slack.com.  It is a bit more dynamic and you could have channels like you have the forum.  But also have an announcement section where announcements could be made.  This is nice because I can look at the history of the chat even if I logoff, but questions can be answered relatively fast, where the forum can sometimes be slower.  Forums are nice for longer formal announcements (like this one), but I feel like slack could give the community a better inside look to the Soferox and feel more involved.

First off, thank you Aaron for the message/thoughts/info...it's MUCH appreciated. 

I like the idea of 2-3 people being in charge of Soferox updates/info/etc., etc...2 heads are always better than one, & it obv relieves the pressure from just 1 person doing everything.

Regarding an info location, I like this forum! I mean, this is what it's for, right? I'm not a huge fan of slack or telegram for this, as we are our own community and since we already have this forum I see no reason to complicate things. When the time comes to promote/market, we can then consider using those 2 outlets.

I do agree with jaytrickett in regards to posting (weekly?) updates on github to show more transparency re how the project is moving along. Doing that will make people, esp newcomers, just simply feel better knowing they can see the progress at anytime.

 

I guess that's it for now. Do know Aaron that we (esp those who've been here since day 1 like myself) are all behind you, do believe in this project, & are excited to be on this ride with you.

Thanks again for your message Aaron...look forward to hearing your thoughts.  ;-)

Hi Aaron and the rest  of the fearless Soferox bunch!

 

I agree with many of the suggestions above as having multiple channels available, while tedious, is simply the best way to reach the most community members and encourage engagement and confidence in the project.  It also allows you to better keep your finger on the pulse of the overall blockchain/crypto community and react to questions or concerns in an appropriate timely manner.  You will finally be seeing my resume shortly as this type of situation is exactly what I have been discussing with you guys for quite some time!  I am excited to share with your team the many ideas and thoughts I have about improvements and ways to better engage and support the Soferox investor community.

Talk to you guys soon!

Soferox friend and cheerleader
